Prayer For The World - Bonafide 1990

written by : F.Musker/J.Scott


Not just another prayer
Not just another song

When I look at the darkness all around us
I feel like I'm losin' control
So many people
Who just don't know where to go
Listen to me now
Not a song goes unsung
Not a voice goes unheard
Ooh I'm hanging on your every word

Chorus:
Say a prayer for the world
Only love can save us now
Say a prayer for the world
Believe that it's gonna be all right somehow
('Cause) Every day is a new day
(And) Every day we start again
Say a prayer for the world
And send all your love
To all creation, oh yeah

Said the world is my pillow
Where I rest my weary head (I rest my weary head)
I'm not afraid of dying
But I'm not gonna think
About leaving here, oh no
And the voice says
Learn to sit in silence
Not a flower grows in vain
We must learn to cultivate the garden
Oh yeah

Chorus

And when the darkness rolls in
There's a light till shining
Yeah, oh yeah
Suspended here in twilight
There's a road I'm finding
Yeah, oh yeah, say a prayer

Chorus repeat 2x

Not just another prayer
Not just another song
