Strange But True
Recorded early 1999 and released as the 15th track on Rave Un2 The Joy Fantastic album (November 9, 1999). Written by Prince.

 
OK, let me say this quick b4 I start 2 cry
U're the only 1 that I gave it 2, the 1 I fantasized 4
And time away from U has taught me what I should've known
This hole I'm tryin' 2 fill with another, yeah, it's growin'
And I got ur package but when I tried 2 write back I bailed
See, tryin' 2 express the future, sometimes language fails
And over this time I've learned my life force is increased by knowing U
Every door that closes, another 1 opens
Strange but true
Strange but true

No regrets because I 4get the unfamiliar faces
Those petty lies and alibis, just gold diggers chasin'
Dreams of sovereignty, they tried 2 come between U and me
A curse therein set forth a chain of events that only freed me
When I remembered where I was and who I am
The only Prince that will ever rule this holy land
All understand and all stand under this affirmation now
By the power invested n me by God, all negativity bows
Strange but true, let's see what U can do

U may have lost me, uh, but I found myself
The ones who love me without condition, this is my wealth
And with these words I will win
Repeat them over and over again
All understand and all stand under this affirmation now
By the power invested n me by God, all negativity bows
All negativity bows, all negativity bows
Strange but true, let's see what U can do
Strange but true, let's see what U can do
All negativity bows

Strange but true {repeat}
All negativity bows
Strange but true, let's see what U can do
All negativity bows
All negativity bows
Strange but true {repeat}
