Prince / Stevie Nicks

Lyrics

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Just like the white winged dove
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song, sings a song
Just like the white winged dove
Sing, sing to you, to you
Just like the white winged dove
Sing


Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
You've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Even doves have pride

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father, too bold
Maybe you're just like my mother
She's never satisfied
Why do we scream at each other
This is what it sounds like
When doves cry

Just like the white winged dove
Just like the white winged dove
Sings a song like she sings
Just like the white winged dove
She sings to me
She sings, Stevie
She sings to you
She sings, she sings
Just like the white winged dove
Just like the white winged dove
