So I Pray

Too many hours,
Not enough day
Runnin’ in circles,
Tryin’ to carry this weight
On my own
The nightmare’s takin’ hold

Been searchin’ for answers,
Day turns to night
Wonderin’ in silence,
‘til dawn brings the light
One more day
With nothin’ left to say

Can’t find my strength
Feelin’ I’ve lost my way
I don’t know
Where to turn so I pray
Lord send me a sign
Don’t wanna lose faith

So many faces, pullin’ me in
Hope for salvation
In an empty embrace
I can’t wake
Don’t let this be my fate

I can’t find my strength
Feelin’ I’ve lost my way
I don’t know
Where to turn so I pray
Lord send me a sign
Don’t wanna lose faith

Lord, can you hear me
Look in my heart,
Give me peace
Send me your angels while I sleep
Comfort my soul,
Cold waters run deep

Sweet

People are talkin’
I can hear them in the street
Gum in my pocket
Dogs are snorin’ in their sleep
Buh-better stop
And think about what you got
Ain’t it sweet?

Two kids are cryin’
Mamas tickle-n’ their feet
An old man sighin’
Mem-ries help to beat the heat
Buh-better stop
And think about what you got
Ain’t it sweet?

No time to waste
I got to let you know
While I'm still dreamin’
Time to let it show
I got you & that’s all that I need
Muh-muh-muh make static free
Break away, take a chance & you’ll see

Sprinklers ta-tickin’
Dandelions kiss the sky
Hummingbirds buzzin’
Laughin’ children passin’ by
Buh-better stop
And think about what you got
Ain’t it sweet?

No time to waste
I got to let you know
While I'm still dreamin’
Time to let it show
I got you & that’s all that I need
Muh-muh-muh make static free
Break away, take a chance & you’ll see

Here we go
Time to let it show
Why pretend that this ain’t what it seems?
Take it slow
Tho’ we already know
There ain’t nothin’ for us to fear

People are talkin’
I can hear them in the street
Gum in my pocket
Dogs are snorin’ in their sleep
Buh-better stop
And think about what you got
Ain’t it sweet?

Buh-better stop
And think about what you go
Ain’t it sweet
