The Same December

Recorded late 1994 and released as the 4th track on the album Chaos And Disorder (July 9, 1996). Written by Prince.

 
Once was this ball with a line straight down the middle
1 side was black and the other 1 white and they both understood so little
That they spent their whole lives tryin' 2 tell each other what time it was
And all along it did not matter what either said because, because...

U only know what U know
U only see what ur heart will show
U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go

Ooh yeah, oh yeah

Once was a golden idol that went 2 the winners
Needless 2 say, it didn't make 'em feel any less a sinner
Cuz the very next morning the whole damn world was the same
Yes it was
The idol's still shinin' but the voice inside
It said, "There ain't no winners n this game"

U only know what U know
U only see what ur heart will show
U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go

Hey

There once was an angel who most certainly watched over me
But if it got me thru the day, is it crazy?

Yeah, I'll b crazy
Until the demons fall as far as anyone can fall
When they reap what they done sowed, I'll b standing tall
We spend our whole lives tryin' 2 dog the other man
When what we need 2 do is try 2 give him all we can

But ah... U only know what U know
And ah... U only see what ur heart'll show
And ah... U only love when ur soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And n the end that's where we'll go, so let's go
Let's go
