Leaving For New York
Unreleased track recorded summer 1976. Written by Chris Moon (lyrics) & Prince (music).

 
Sitting there on the purple lawn
U've been there since dawn
Wonderin' why I've gone
And 4 just 2 long

U're sorry U gave n2 me
Giving up ur virginity
U're so afraid that U will b
So alone away from me

Though I said I'd never leave U
This is something that I must do
But I never will 4get U
Unless U 4get 2 come n2 my dream
Ooh

Leaving 4 New York n the morning
But I'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But I'm taking with me memories of when we made love
And all the other lovin' feelin' that we share

U'll overcome that misery
Passed up by life's complexity
Picturing ur love around me
Only adds 2 ur agony

U're undisturbed by the rain
Ur pain must b 2 strong
And even though U wait n vain
U wait 4 me no matter how... how long

Though I said I'd never leave U
This is something that I must do
But I never will 4get U
Unless U 4get 2 come n2 my dream
Ooh

I'm leaving 4 New York n the morning
But I'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But I'm taking with me memories of when we made love
And all the other lovin' feelin' we share

I'm leaving 4 New York n the morning
But I'm leaving behind a love extraordinaire
But I'm taking with me memories of when we made love
And all the other lovin' feelin' that we share
Oh
