"Paisley Park" as written by and Prince Rogers Nelson....
There is a park that is known 4 the face it attracts
Colorful people whose hair on 1 side is swept back
The smile on their faces it speaks of profound inner peace
Ask where they're going, they'll tell U nowhere
They've taken a lifetime lease on Paisley Park

The girl on the seesaw is laughing 4 love is the color
This place imparts (Paisley Park)
Admission is easy, just say U believe and come
2 this place in your heart
Paisley Park is in your heart

There is a woman who sits all alone by the pier
Her husband was naughty and caused his wife so many tears
He died without knowing forgiveness and now she is sad
So sad
Maybe she'll come 2 the park and forgive him
And life won't be so bad in Paisley Park


See the man cry as the city condemns where he lives
Memories die, but taxes he'll still have 2 give
Whoever said that elephants were stronger than mules?
Come 2 the park and play with us
There aren't any rules in Paisley Park

Chorus repeated 2 times

Your heart, your heart
Paisley Park
Your heart, your heart, your heart
Paisley Park
Paisley Park
Paisley Park

    General Commentfind peace within
    basically affirming that everyone can be a better person, and love will always be the best way to do so, through all pain and struggles of existence
    to find forgiveness and a lil' understanding the only way to go is inside your heart
    agree ^^
    i'm a little bit amazed the lyrics are really beautiful, pro-love, deep and all. never the less there's no religious angle to it...
    yeah just 4 once Prince has eventually kept god out of it all :)
    good god!

    Song MeaningThe Beautiful One, Prince
    I read people feel he left God out of this one, No on the contrary Paisley Park I feel is all about finding God . I love you Prince forever and thank you.

    General CommentY'all missed a spot. He speaks of elephants and mules....as in political parties. Parsley Park is clearly Heaven. Only believers in God...get there. He is always talking God, shame he had to be murdered in order for folks to WAKE UP!
