Indigo Tears

Much thanks can be given for all that you gave,
Not satisfied to be merely an industry slave.
Fighting for the rights of those who produce art,
Fostering creation from the very start.
You gave of yourself through all of the years;
Now the purple rain has turned to indigo tears.

You made generations smile and dance,
With your lyrics filled with lust and romance.
Your anguish and pain we could see in one look,
Through the eye of the camera you were an open book.
You gave of yourself through all of the years;
Now the purple rain has turned to indigo tears.

The performer on stage, the crafter of song,
With hooks so strong, we all sing along.
The epitome of giving and self-sacrifice.
All of which done without thinking twice.
You gave of yourself through all of the years;
Now the purple rain has turned to indigo tears.

God whisked you away on a cold Minnesota morning;
Shocking the world seemingly without any warning.
Yet you will still touch lives in your own special way,
With every note and in every song that you play.
You gave of yourself through all of the years;
Now the purple rain has turned to indigo tears.
