Only Heaven Knows
Unreleased song debuted live on June 30, 2011 @ Stade de France, Saint-Denis. Lyrics reflect the combined known 4 performances. Written by Prince.

 
Everybody's always tryin' 2 make U walk the crooked road
Have directions just the same as my hand, they just lyin'
With a hand this good, don't U let 'em make U fold
What makes people change when they become lovers?
Sayin' U belong 2 me, don't U dare talk 2 another

Because n life, 1 question I must pose
Why U think 2 me it matters? Only heaven knows

Why do people keep flip-floppin'? Understand I tried
Basically speakin' like they did when their dreams died
Every day they love ya till the day they're satisfied
Consistency, a trait I wish they'd seek instead of hide

Male or female, 1 question I must pose
Why U think 2 me it matters? Only heaven knows

Crazy how somebody can b jealous of another
Only heaven knows why, everybody should b cool
Claimin' that they r when they know they ain't better
When they couldn't b further from the bald-head truth

Only heaven knows {repeat}

2 start a new, we must respect the old
Me and U r only as good as the story we're told
Without the past, U know what? U ain't got no clothes
This is the difference between analog pimps and digital hos

Male or female, 1 question I must pose
Why U think 2 me it matters? Only heaven knows

Let the buffalo keep talkin'
Don't believe what U heard
Just because I got baptized
That don't mean I ain't scared
U might catch a dog from Cameroon
Get a purple boot n ur pants
This is ur final warning
Stop lookin' at me and dance

U can leave if U want 2, little Prince gon' stay
I got a whole bunch of mo' songs that I wanna play
We got Johnny on the drums, a purple Prince on the bass
We don't need nobody else 2 give me the funk face

Whether black or white, 1 question I must pose
Why U think 2 me it matters? Only heaven knows

We talk about big business
So why don't U go mind ur own?
2 tell the truth, respect's a little skinny
But mine keeps on growin'
NPG get love and respect, hugs everywhere
Just because U ain't helpin', don't hate me then
That's the part, is trick her
So when ur woman tips
Now I like a big helpin'
But sometimes its all just a trip

Let it out! Let me do me, U can do U
This game will go on 4ever
U need 2 feel good cuz I'm cool
I got another gold guitar
But n the world, there's 2
Plug it n if U wanna but I'm still that dude
