Remembering with Joy

This song.
I loved it in high school.
I sang it to my best friend, Lola, whenever we'd go dancing.
"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for a friend." John 15:13
I heard it again (after a long time) while driving to work on Friday morning - a day after Prince's death.
It's such a beautiful song about God's love.
It felt like I was being serenaded by a really cool God. I cried.
Thank you, Prince (from the me at 15 and 47).

I Would Die 4 
I'm not a woman
I'm not a man 
I am something that you'll never understand 

I'll never beat you 
I'll never lie 
And if you're evil I'll forgive you by and by 

'Cause you, I would die for you, yeah 
Darling if you want me to 
You, I would die for you 

I'm not your lover 
I'm not your friend 
I am something that you'll never comprehend 
No need to worry 
No need to cry 
I'm your messiah and you're the reason why 

'Cause you, I would die for you, yeah 
Darling if you want me to You, 
I would die for you 

You're just a sinner I am told
Be your fire when you're cold
Make you happy when you're sad
Make you good when you are bad

I'm not a human
I am a dove
I'm your conscious
I am love
All I really need is to know that You believe

Yeah, I would die for you, yeah
Darling if you want me to
You, I would die for you
Yeah, say one more time
You, I would die for you
Darling if you want me to
You, I would die for you
Two, three, four you
I would die for you
I would die for you
You, I would die for you
You, I would die for you
