The Cross

Recorded on July 13, 1986 for the aborted Dream Factory album, instead released as the 14th track on album Sign "" The Times (March 31, 1987) and later as the 10th track on Girl 6 movie soundtrack (March 19, 1996). Written by Prince.

 
Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope n sight
Don't cry, He is coming
Don't die without knowing the cross

Ghettos 2 the left of us
Flowers 2 the right
There'll b bread 4 all of us
If we can just bear the cross

Sweet song of salvation
A pregnant mother sings
She lives n starvation
Her children need all that she brings

We all have our problems
Some big, some r small
Soon all of our problems
Will b taken by the cross

Black day, stormy night
No love, no hope n sight
Don't cry 4 He's coming
Don't die without knowing the cross, y'all

Ghettos 2 the left of us
Flowers 2 the right
There'll b bread 4 all y'all
If we can just, just bear the cross, yeah

We all have our own problems
Some r big, some r small
Soon all of our problems, y'all
Will b taken by the cross, oh yes

The cross
The cross
