Handwritten working lyrics in pencil for the song ‘Face 2 Face’ by Prince, unsigned, one page, both sides, 8.25 x 11, no date. The lyrics read, in full: “Chorus / I’ve never been one 2 hide my feelings / baby u blow my mind / You could never know how good u make me feel / not some but all the time / When we talk u give me confidence / that’s enough 2 make this case / I can’t wait ‘til I get 2 meet u - / Face 2 Face / 1. Even tho u make me nervous—All I wanna / do talk 2 u / I kinda like that I feel like that I’ll say the wrong thing I kinda like that yes [eye] do / Even tho I’ve never seen your face / I got a funny funny feeling there / that I when I do—just like / an old soul record it’ll groove in my hair / Chorus / 2. U might think that I’m a lion but most / people don’t inspire me / Could it be what make me love u baby is / good old fashioned mystery? / please don’t misconstrue my feelings it’s just / that I feel like a little boy / Whenever I talk 2 u I wanna go in my room & / play with my toys Hey! / Over / I know u can’t judge a book by its cover / until u read all there is inside / I know u can’t tell a friend they’re a lover / until u know if u’ll be satisfied / but what I don’t know is how any rules apply / baby when it comes 2 u / All the rules go out the window / and so does my cool / Chorus (write it all out please).” In fine condition, with some light creasing to the bottom. Research indicates that ‘Face 2 Face’ was ultimately never recorded, although the opening line, “I’ve never been one 2 hide my feelings / baby u blow my mind,” was used in the song ‘Space,’ the second single from Prince’s 1994 album Come. From the collection of Prince's assistant Therese Stoulil and accompanied by a letter of provenance.
