Prince: Purple Rain Meaning

Purple Rain Lyrics

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted one time to see you laughing
I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain


Purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain, purple rain...

    IMO, this represents religion and depression at the time.

    I have this crush on a girl who I think is beautiful and interesting but she doesn't really know anything about me and I doubt that she will love me back if she did.

    Though, whats special to me about this song is that I know there's nothing I can do to get her love,so "I never wanted to be your[her] weekend lover"
    and instead "I only wanted to be some kind of friend" because that's pretty much the best I can do. I at least want to watch her enjoy herself in something magical like "purple rain."

    very relaxing and beautiful song.
    meaning is a bit simple, its break friendship/relationship song "It's such a shame our friendship had to end" expect that it's in an innocent way "I never meant to cause you any pain."

    I think this song was for people he cares about. I think the "purple rain" represents happiness, he wants the people he cares about to just be happy, he never ment to hurt them or cause them any sorrow he only wants them to be happy.
