Prince – Same Page, Different Book Lyrics

Prince Same Page Different Book Lyrics, Same Page Different Book Lyrics by Prince

Checkin’ 1, 2

Eye hitched a train
Between here & Saint Paul
Eye had no idea
That Eye’d sleep in a pig stall
Once Eye got home
The dirt that covered me
Nothing like the disappointment
(That) you would never see

Same page, but a different book
So much more in common
If you’d only look
There’s only 1 God
Whatever name He took
Only matters when it comes to war
What are we, what are we
What are we fighting for

Breathe, let it
Breathe

New kids on the block
Tryin’ to make their beds
Here comes another rock
Upside their heads
There goes the missile
Headed for the hood
Trigger another car bomb
Did nobody no good

Same page, but a different book
So much more in common
If you’d only look
There’s only 1 God
Whatever name He took
Only matters when it comes to war
What are we, what are we
What are we fighting for

All right, listen you’all
We’re about to let this thing just
Groove
Move

Chapter verse
Which came 1st
Thinkin’ to slow
While they snatch ya purse
Faith, law, good deeds
Practicing what you preach
Between you and me
TV ain’t reality
That’s right Eye said it
It’s said
Buy this, cop that
All up in ya head

24 hour news
That ain’t right
Them suckas gotcha
Daydreaming at midnight

Galatians chapter 3 says:
The law was as good as dead
Having faith in the life
Death & resurrection
Of the 2nd Adam instead
Would bring us all salvation
If there’s works in the faith we choose
But if you’re all alone
Throwing stones
Who do you think’s gonna lose?
Who do you think’s gonna lose?

Same page, but a different book
So much more in common
If you’d only look
1 God
Whatever name He took
Only matters when it comes to war
What are we, what are we
What are we fighting for

Same page, different book
Same page, different book
Same page, different book
Only matters when it comes to war
What are we, what are we
What are we fighting for

Same page, different book
Watch out for the sinister minister
They’re out there you’all
Look out
Same page, different book
You’re better off chillin’ ’til the world ends
What are we, what are we
What are we fighting for
