Face 2 Face is an unreleased song believed to have been recorded in early 1993. Prince's handwritten lyrics to the song were made available in early 2021 during an auction by RR Auction; the song was not known previously. The auction states that research indicates that the song was not recorded, but this may simply be because the title was not previously known. The date is speculative, based on the opening lines from the lyrics, "I’ve never been one 2 hide my feelings / baby u blow my mind", being reused in Space, recorded in May, 1993; it is possible that Face 2 Face was written and/or recorded earlier. The song was not included on any known configuration of Come, and remains unreleased, if indeed it was ever recorded.
