I try my best to keep you here
But it's hard to hold a shadow
You said goodbye but I couldn't hear
Too busy praying for a miracle

And you left me on my knees
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency
To intervene while I was begging God for
You to love me

I prayed about us every night
Boy I know you had to hear me
You could've stopped me then and told the truth
But instead you pulled a pillow over your head

And you left me on my knees
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency
To intervene while I was begging God for
You to love me

You should've told me it was useless,
That I was praying empty prayers
But you hopped in your car, pulled out your keys
While you were leaving
I was begging God for you to love me

And I know that he had something better to do
Than to sit and listen to a broken-hearted fool
Could've been saving the world from a tragedy
But instead he was listening to me

I was asking, begging for a sign
To bring comfort to this lonely heart of mine
But apparently you're not what I need
I guess you walking out was him answering

You left me on my knees baby
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency
To intervene while I was begging God for
You to love me

I tried my best to keep you here
But it's hard to hold a shadow
