“Tracy died soon after our long fought civil war
Just after I’d wiped away his last tear
I guess he’s better off than he was before,
A whole lot better off than the fools he left here

I used to cry for Tracy because he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don’t pass you every day
I used to cry for Tracy ‘cause I wanted to see him again,
But sometimes sometimes life ain’t always the way…

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

Springtime was always my favorite time of year,
A time for lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy’s tears
Always cry for love, never cry for pain

He used to say so strong unafraid to die
Unafraid of the death that left me hypnotized
No, staring at his picture I realized
No one could cry the way my Tracy cried


Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad
Sometimes, sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
And all good things, they say, never last

I often dream of heaven and I know that Tracy’s there
I know that he has found another friend
Maybe he’s found the answer to all the April snow
Maybe one day I’ll see my Tracy again

Sometimes it snows in April
Sometimes I feel so bad, so bad
Sometimes I wish that life was never ending,
But all good things, they say, never last

All good things that say, never last
And love, it isn’t love until it’s past”.

Citazioni.

Sometimes It Snows in April is a song by American musician Prince. It was included on his eighth studio album Parade, which was also the soundtrack to his film Under the Cherry Moon (1986). Prince wrote, performed, and produced the song alongside Wendy & Lisa, who co-wrote the music. The song’s narrator recounts memories of Christopher Tracy, Prince‘s character from Under the Cherry Moon, and how Tracy’s death affected the narrator; it also expresses their desire to hopefully rejoin Tracy in heaven. Prince performed the song live fairly often over the years, sometimes using it as a final encore to wind down the show. “Sometimes It Snows in April” received significant attention after Prince‘s death on April 21, 2016, exactly 31 years after its recording date, and it went on to re-enter several record charts worldwide.
After the initial release of Parade, “Sometimes It Snows in April” was not released as a single, which made it ineligible to chart. However, after Prince‘s death on April 21, 2016, sales of the song increased heavily, allowing it to peak on several charts. The song was most successful in Europe; in France, it peaked at number 14, lasting a total of three weeks on the chart. It fared well in the Netherlands, Austria, and Switzerland, where it peaked at numbers 63, 69, and 64, respectively. It charted the lowest in the United Kingdom, where it lasted for one week on the chart, peaking at number 193″.
