    EEEE I like this song. My sister was playing music last weekend and it was one of the songs. I really like it. Its one of those that the voice, the music, and the words all go. And am I really the first comment, or is there another copy somewhere?

    This is one of my favorite Prince songs of all time.

    Seems to be about an older guy falling in love with a younger girl and how the age difference doesn't matter.

    It's hard to pick a favourite Prince song, but I would put this in the "best Prince ballad released in the early 90s" period. I adore this track, it's stands out so much on the lovesign album but it's easily the simplest and most straightforward ballad.

    It's autobiographical, like many songs on that album are, Prince was in love with Mayte who was only 19 years old when they met, he wrote this one in the style of a randomly selected page from a novel. The 'book' he's taken the page from is a love story in the style of Lolita, an illicit affair is taking place but love knows no limits like age differences etc... The subject matter is pretty straightforward, but what makes this song so special is the beautiful way it's sung and the captivating lyrics. It's by far one of the most romantic songs ever.
