"This Could Be Us" as written by and Prince....
You ready?
Naw, you ain't ready (no you ain't ready)
I mean ready for us
You know you want me like a new pair of shoes

Ooh uh, this could be us
But you be playin'
This could be us
But you keep on foolin' around
You're the cage to my dove
I'm just saying
Forever and ever in love
Oh baby yeah, this could be us

You know you want me like a new pair of shoes

(This could be, us)
This could be us

You, you say you ain't ready
Ready to go steady
Ain't ready for us (no)
'Cause what I got make you weak in in the knees
Take your energy (oh baby)
Make you sleep all week
Sex with me ain't enough
That's why we gotta do it metaphysically

(This could be, us)
This could be us
(This could be, us)
This could be us

I, I know you're loving your freedom
'Cause yo freedom (freedom) is payin' yo bills? (Oh funky dolla?)
Yes it is
Boyfriends, you think you don't need 'em
But in the middle of the cold, cold night
I think you will (sho' you right)

This could be us, yes
But you be playin' (oh yeah)
This could be us (you sho' nuff could be)
But you keep on foolin' around

We, we come up on a crossroad
And we got to decide (got to decide)
Which way to turn,
(Which way yes which way to turn)
Are we gonna go (are we gonna go) Go (are we gonna)
Over the bridge (over the bridge, over the bridge)
Before, before it burns
(Don't you let it burn, let it burn, baby)

This could be us
This could be us, oh yeah
(This could be us)
Oh you gotta stop playing' baby

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That a woman needs love, L-O-V-E (love)
(Like a river flow, like a river flow) inside
If its good that's all she thinking of
(Metaphysical)

Sleep alone if you wanna (nothing mystical xxxxx)
But like a new pair of shoes
(And after that) You gonna wanna show me off to your friends (can't believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap)
When I ooohhh
This right here
This cloud be us

This could be us
(This could be us) oh yeah
(But you would be playing) yes you do now
(This could be us) honey, honey, honey
But you keep on foolin' around
See that you're the cage to me dove
I'm just saying (I'm just saying)
Forever and ever in love
Ooh Baby yeah, this could be us

(This could be us)
This could be us
This could be us, yes could be us

This could be us

This could be us

Can't you see it baby
You're the cage to my dove
Only one I been dreaming of
Forever and ever in love
Ohh baby yeah, this could, this could be, this could be us

But you don't have time for me no more

    General CommentI love this song. Apparently Prince wrote this song after seeing a meme with Prince and Apollonia on a Purple Rain picture with them together on his purple motorcycle (with the words This could be us).

    The song also appears to be a telling of the romance between the Kid and Apollonia in the movie, in my opinion.

    Song FactAll about Andy Allo. She left him for a man closer to her age. Rumor has it she was exposed by Prince's camp for using him for a come up, she was caught out running her mouth and the like. SO THE TEA GOES!!
