lyrics

Every Sunday I sit in a pew
Stick a book in my face
And when they tell me to pray
Wonder who I’m talking to

Holy words of wisdom run so many lives
They tell us who to save
And who should carry the blame
Turn the other cheek, it’s alright

I’m not sure how this works

But every night I say a prayer for you
And I cry myself to sleep
In hope that someone’s listening
And I get so scared
when the phone rings after 10 PM
I wonder where they sent you
Wonder if the bullets’ll take you
One of these days
So I say, I say a prayer
I say, I say a prayer
I say, I say a prayer
And wonder how you’re doing out there

Yesterday you called your mama up
You told her you were fine
Hope that’s not a lie
But I don’t wanna know tonight

Cause so much can happen in 24 hours
A bomb only needs a moment
To leave me broken
I’d do anything to keep you safe now

Oh God, I hope this works

When every night I say a prayer for you
And I cry myself to sleep
In hope that someone’s listening
And I get so scared
when the phone rings after 10 PM
I wonder where they sent you
Wonder if the bullets’ll take you
One of these days
So I say, I say a prayer
I say, I say a prayer
I say, I say a prayer
And wonder how you’re doing out there
Out there
