Mary J BligeEmpty Prayers

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
