Sometimes It Snows In April Lyrics

Artist: Prince
Album: Parade

Tracy died soon after a 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 2 cry 4 Tracy because he was my only friend
Those kind of cars don't pass u every day
I used 2 cry 4 Tracy because 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 4 lovers holding hands in the rain
Now springtime only reminds me of Tracy's tears
Always cry 4 love, never cry 4 pain
He used 2 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 2 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

by Mark on 4/9/2010 9:15am
First time i heard this song was when i once more had heavy trouble with my parents with age of 16, and it was a night in april and snow fell down. Now i'm 40 years of age and listen to this song every time i have to say goodbye to any of my beloved ones. It makes me deal better with love & dead. Thank you Prince.

thank you. this song accompanies me since 13 years ago. thanks prince, is what you are.
by kare on 8/11/2010 5:27pm
The last line .. "Love it isn't love until it's passed" sounds and looks very much to me like "Love it isn't love until it's had" when you see the video of Prince singing it live. It's more poetic to me like that too.

by Shantel Derrickson on 9/17/2010 9:54am

What is this song about?

I'm not gay, but to me it seems that it is a song about a friend who was gay (hence the civil war lyric)and that friend died.

I don't know, but it is a beautiful sad song :)
by Richard on 2/25/2012 11:24am
I have heard the same sentiment many times. However, the thought is misunderstood. This song is about the love of a friend who was struggling with thoughts of suicide. Hence the civil war, between life and death. Tracy was unafraid of death, seeing it as an extension of life. I’m not gay and I have male friends that I feel this strongly about….
by Dieter on 5/16/2012 1:06pm
This is MUSIC!
Thank you - man.

To all out there: make something out of it!

To PRINCE: Thanks!
by georgia on 7/13/2013 3:33am
thanks, prince. for writing such an incredible song that sums up what exactly what the pain is like when you lose someone you love, and how they feel when they don't want to carry on, this song makes me hope that one day, i may find the people i lost that i loved, and that maybe there is something after this perfectly imperfect world. The things that you most love come and go too quickly. The only true battle there is, is the battle against yourself.
by Sbastienj on 11/24/2013 3:31pm
One of the greatest song ever! I listen it since 1986 on Parade's Album... I was ... 13! Then, I watched the movie Under a cherry moon (prince's movie) where we can hear this song.
There were some copies (eg native singers) but the original was/is/will be the best.
I try to make this song heard by my real best friends (the pure ones) even across the world.
Tks Prince for all the good music, all the shows I saw... As u say "Real music by real musician"... I remember one of your interview in 80's "creating a new music is like meeting a new friend. With that in mind I try to create things u've never heard before"
This song is for my best friends and specially one (alive but far from me)
by Jeanette on 9/3/2014 2:00pm
i was 10 when i started to listen to prince. this was back in 1982.
To me this song is so powerful.
it doesn't really matter if the song is about homosexuality or what ever.
its about love and loosing love. and the grief and sorrow we feel. i can not listen to this song without crying. it has deeply touched me all these years. for those who have not experienced Prince and his multitalent have not lived life to the fullest.
When i die i hope someone will feel bout me like Prince feels about Tracy.
Love to all of you who understand the genius of Prince.

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
RIP Prince

...and today (April 21,2016) it's snowing... -Requiesce in pace, Prince
by marii on 4/21/2016 12:39pm
Maybe he's found the answer 2 all the April snow... RIP Prince <3
by Carsten on 4/21/2016 1:03pm
And now it seems even more sad... Goodbye, Tracy. ..

My absolute favourite Prince song. Someone I knew lost a close close friend in April and it snowed the day they passed. This song is so resonant for me. Thank you for helping me through tough times - your music just seemed to speak to me. RIP Prince Roger Nelson.

Rest in peace beautiful one, you were a musical genius.

You are with Tracy, my friend.
by flo on 4/23/2016 5:46am
Farewell to you but not to your music ,-(
by Hanne (Denmark) on 4/24/2016 1:55am
Ur music will last
Thanks for all the joyful and sadly moments.
R.I.P. Prince

After listening to every Prince song this is now my favorite, replace Tracy with Prince

by Denise on 4/26/2016 11:39pm
With a broken heart I say thank you and goodbye. You were always stardust and love. Nothing compares to U. 💜💔💜
by John C on 4/29/2016 2:01pm
The last word in the last line is "passed"...NOT "past" in Love is meant to spread around and "passed" along...
by Cal on 12/27/2020 10:50am
This is a love song to the self

That love only means anything after it's passed means that that universe holds the memory of love more purely in eternity
