about

Dear Prince;

We pray that wherever you are, your soul is at peace. Words can never describe what you have done for us and millions of others, but we would like to say thank you.

We have produced this piece ("Purple Funkin' Tears") as a way to both honor/thank you as well as amplify one of your many great messages. The message we have chosen is "Whenever you say that you can't, that's when you need to be tryin'".

Your light will always shine bright in our heart and our minds. You were truly an example from which other humans can learn, and we are humbled to have known you.

Farewell my friend. Hope to feel you in the creative ether.

May Da' Funk B Wit U
Funkcerely
Da' Mutta' Funka's

<intro>
Thats the beat of my purple
Purple Funkin' tears
Forming tiny circles
Of puddles in my hair

Drowning in purple
Purple Funkin' teers
Mind spinnin' in circles
Whirlpool so near

<verse 01>
He wouldn't have it
Any Other Way
His genius magic
It will always play

He gave us a reason
He gave us style
He gave us a new season
He gave Funk fresh miles

I thought he'd surely outlive me
I thought the magic won't end
I thought I'll check him on the next tour
But I was wrong my friend

But I gotta say thank you
And I'm not sure how
So I guess I'll just play through
This dark purple Funkin' hour

<instrumental>

<chorus 01>
Purple Funkin' tears
Fallin' from my mind
So many years
Echoing times signs

Purple Funkin' tears
Cuttin' my heart out
Into little pieces
Soul is on a walkabout

Soul is on a walkabout

<verse 02>
So what we gonna do now
When we think of him
And that purple power
That shone from within

Gotta boogie like a hurricane
Till the sun come up
We gonna Funk it up insane
We gonna drink that cup

Filled with our tears and
They gonna taste so sweet
Cause that sexy Mutta' Funker
He helped set our minds free

So give a shout to the power
From the fuse he lit
Funk it on every hour
No time to sit

<chorus 02>
Purple Funkin' tears
Bleadin' from my mind
So many years
Echoing times signs

Purple Funkin' tears
Choppin' my soul out
Into little pieces
Soul is on a walkabout

Soul is on a walkabout

Soul is on a walkabout

<outro>
So remember his wise words
To getcha hunger drivin'
Whenever you say you can't
Thats when you need to be tryin'
Whenever you think you can't
Is when you got to keep risin'
Whenever they say you can't
Thats when you know that they lyin'

Whenever you say you can't
Is when you need to be tryin'
Whenever you think you can't
Got to got to got to keep risin'
Whenever they say you can't
You need to know that they lyin'
With all of your energy
You gotta' set dreams flyin'
Whenever you say you can't
Thats when you need to be tryin'

May his memory help preserve the Funk in each and every one of us!
