Mary J BligeEmpty Prayers

I tried 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 the 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 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
