Lyrics

Well, they told me
It would be OK
Yeah, they told me
They told me what to say

And they gave to me
Then they took away
Yeah, they gave it to me
It was powdered cocaine

And I just can't wait (you make me wait)
Any longer (don't make me wait)
I've got to leave today

What you doin' to me
You're messin' with my brain
What you doin' to me
I'm stuck in purple rain

And I just can't wait (you make me wait)
Any longer (don't make me wait)
I've got to leave today

"O God! Methinks it were a happy life
To be no better than a homely swain
To sit upon a hill, as I do now
To carve out dials quaintly, point by point
Thereby to see the minutes how they run
How many make the hour full complete
How many hours bring about the day
How many days will finish up the year
How many years a mortal man may live"

Please believe me
I was well on my way
Yeah, believe me
We thought that we would play

And I just can't wait (you make me wait)
Any longer (don't make me wait)
I've got to leave today

Don't fall for me
Don't wanna see you pray
Don't you wait for me
Just let it slip away

And I just can't wait (you make me wait)
Any longer (don't make me wait)
I've got to leave today

And I just can't wait (you make me wait)
Any longer (don't make me wait)
I've got to leave today

Thank you
