"The Same December" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
Once was this ball with a line straight down the middle
One side was black and the other one white
And they both understood so little
That they spent their whole lives tryin' to tell each other what time it was
And all along it did not matter what either said
Because, because

You only know what you know
You only see what your heart will show
You only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

There once was a golden idol that went to the winners
Needless to say, it didn't make 'em feel any less a sinner
Cause the very next mornin' 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 in this game"

You only know what you know
You only see what your heart will show
You only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

There once was an angel
Who most certainly watched over me
But if it got me through the day
Is it crazy?
Yeah, I'll be crazy

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

But, uh, you only know what you know
And, uh, you only see what your heart'll show
And, uh, you only love when your soul remembers
We all come from the same December
And in the end that's where we'll go
So let's go

Let's go
Let's go!

    General CommentI think this one of Prince's more interesting 'vaguely spiritual' songs. It's usually exotica, erotica or spirituality with Prince, but in this one he doesn't over cook the basic idea. I guess it's about people valuing opinions and possessions over spirituality or life's true meaning etc... It's not a subject I usually care for, but Prince does these kinds of songs so well. Plus I love how in the video he's dressed up as a gothic, dandy pimp. This came out around his mid-90s 'melt-down' period. Gotta love the whacky era Prince.
