The backstory

As a deep fan, after getting the news on that third Thursday in April, 2016, I turned off the news — and turned to his words.

All 150,000+ of them.

I needed to see them all in one place. But that did not exist. So, I embarked upon this personal listening-retrospect and what turned out to be a monumental lyric-gathering journey of Prince’s words — '319' pages. Then as I got deeper into this lyrical journey, trying to process his absence, I realized I couldn't keep this collection to myself. Other fans need his words too. They are Prince's words, not mine.


So, here they are... 'for you.'
