"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,"  the poignant lyrics of the six-minute song, which is the last track on Prince's Parade album read.

Twitter users immediately suggested the star knew he was going to pass away in the spring month.

 

 

 

Others used the lyrics of the song to express their devastation at news of the singer's death.

Others turned to a different song to look for clues that the star knew he was going to die.

They claimed that he also makes reference to his death in 'Let's go crazy', which includes the line: "And if the elevator tries to break you down, go crazy, punch a higher floor."

 

The icon's tragic death comes after news broke that he was treated for an overdose just six days before he was found dead.
