"Love, Thy Will Be Done" as written by Prince Rogers Nelson and Marta Marrero....
Every night I hope and pray a dream lover will come my way
A girl to hold in my arms and know the magic of her charms
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah) to call (yeah-yeah yeah) my
Own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, where are you with a love, oh, so true?
And I hand that can hold, to feel you near as I grow old?
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah) to call (yeah-yeah yeah) my
Own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Someday, I don't know how, I hope she'll hear my plea
Some way, I don't know how, she'll bring her love to me

Dream lover, until then, I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do, till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah) to call (yeah-yeah yeah) my
Own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Dream lover, until then, I'll go to sleep and dream again
That's the only thing to do, till all my lover's dreams come true
'Cause I want (yeah-yeah yeah) a girl (yeah-yeah yeah) to call (yeah-yeah yeah) my
Own (yeah-yeah)
I want a dream lover so I don't have to dream alone

Please don't make me dream alone
I beg you don't make me dream alone
No, I don't want to dream

    General CommentThis song is so sweet. I think it's about the singer finally admitting that they're in love with someone.

    General Commentsounds like she's a newborn christian who discovered her love for God & Its Glory. Also she's feeling fulfilled, content and no longer running.

    General CommentSimilar to "Like a Prayer" the song is simply an allegory between romantic love and the love of a God. It's not particularly cryptic.

    General CommentTo me this is a spiritual song and it's about carrying on in someone's name or spirit their work.
    Oddly enough yet another Prince song.
