The Love We Make
Recorded summer 1996 and released as the 11th track (disc 3) on album Emancipation (November 19, 1996). Written by Prince.

 
Desperate is the day that is 2morrow
4 those who do not know the time has come
2 whip the dogs that beg, steal or borrow
From the table God set 4 His Son

Wicked is the witch that stands 4 nothing
All the while watching 2 see U fall
Deeper than the ditch that bred ur suffering
The 1 being dug right now by them all

Happy is the way 2 meet ur burdens
No matter how heavy or dark the day
Pity on those with no hope 4 2morrow
It's never as bad as it seems until we say

Precious is a baby with a mother
That tells him that his Savior is comin' soon
All that believe will cleanse and purify themselves
Put down the needle, put down the spoon
Put down the needle, put down the spoon

Ooh
Sacred is a prayer that asks 4 nothing, oh
While seekin' 2 give thanks 4 every breath we take, oh
Blessed r we inside this prayer
4 n the new world we will b there

The only love there is... the love we make
The only love there is... is the love we make
Ooh-oh, the only love there is... is the love we make
The only love there is...
The only love there is... is the love we make
Oh, the only love there is... is the love we make
