Way Back Home - What is Prince trying to tell us?
« on: January 21, 2018, 08:52:04 AM »
From his album Art Official Age

Any person or object whatsoever
That requires your attention
Is something that has veered
from its path
And preordained destiny
of total enlightenment

I never wanted a typical life
scripted role, huh...trophy wife
All I ever wanted, to b left alone
See my beds made up at night
Cuz in my dreams I roam
Just trying to find, trying to find
My way back, back home

So many reasons why
There's so many reasons why
I don't belong here
But now that I am I
Without fear I am
Gonna conquer with no fear
Until I find my way back home
Until I find my way back home
Find my way back home

Most people in this world are born dead
But I was born alive
I was born with this dream
With a dream outside my head
That I could find my way back home
My my way way back home

Is this the way?

Power to the ones, power to the ones
who could raise a child like me
The path was set
But if u look the truth will set us free
I've heard about those happy endings
But it's still a mystery
Lemme tell u about me
I'm happiest when I can see
My way back home

Can u see my way back home
Can u see my way back home

I think Prince is telling us how he really feels in this song. He says he never wanted a typical life and wants to be left alone (since he's a very private person). Also interesting how he mentioned that there's so many reasons why he don't belong here (as the artist Prince I assume) and the reasons could be many. He was now forced to go back to his old enemy WB in order to get his masters back, he was probably very tired of Jehovas Witnesses who tried to control him, no luck with finding a faithful woman who loves him instead of "the artist",  he was getting older and probably felt it was time to slow down so he can focus on other things in life etc. His way back home, I think that's what he found now when he retired. Now hes left alone and don't have any pressure, he can live a life in freedom. I think Way Back Home is Prince saying Goodbye.
