When Doves Cry

But then Prince juxtaposes the Christian idea of purity with the naturalistic, primal nature of sex:
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
The heat between me and u
Prince couldn't just stick to the one or the other, could he?
In addition, the child-like teasing of the line "Don't make me chase u" evokes young love. The fun of this, which is apparent in both the way that it is sung and in the playful chromatic xylophone run that turns up in the background, is another form of simplistic purity. Prince has all his bases covered in the romance—childhood innocence meets elemental sexual power meets spiritual unity. Sounds like true love to us.
