Alex Clare - When Doves Cry Lyrics



Dig if you will the picture,
Of you and I engaged in a kiss.
The sweat of your body covers me my darling.
Can you my darling,
Can you picture this?

Dream if you can a courtyard,
An ocean of violets in bloom.
Animals strike curious poses,
They feel the heat,
The heat between me and you.

How can you just leave me standing,
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding,
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold.
Maybe you're just like my mother,
She's never satisfied.
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like,
When doves cry.

How can you just leave me standing,
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding,
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold.
Maybe you're just like my mother,
She's never satisfied.
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like,
When doves cry.
When doves cry.

Touch if you will my stomach,
Feel how it trembles inside.
You've got the butterflies all tied up,
Don't make me chase you,
Even doves have pride.

How can you just leave me standing,
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding,
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold.
Maybe you're just like my mother,
She's never satisfied.
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like,
When doves cry.

How can you just leave me standing,
Alone in a world so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding,
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold.
Maybe you're just like my mother,
She's never satisfied.
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like,
When doves cry.
When doves cry.

    WHEN DOVES CRY REMIX: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cC7PpYoHo4

    2 years ago, in honor of the 30th anniversary of the release of the "Purple Rain" soundtrack, I took a break from producing hip hop music to remix my favorite Prince song "When Doves Cry" (Respectively titled "SixTwentyFive" to commemorate the 6/25/84 release date). The video features choreography by local (Chicago-based) dancers, as well as some interesting and timely movie and song samples. I hope you enjoy what we came up with and share with your friends and fellow Prince fans! Much thanks and much love!
