I wanted to pray, I wanted to let you go on your way
I wanted to know why they laid there
Dying in the streets next to the restaurant
Where people were eating and yes, I wanted to pray
How do you pray in a world like this
You know, I see the people on TV
And they close their eyes and they bow their heads
And they say, "Let us pray" and
It feels so cold and meaningless
And I wanted to pray and I said
Tell me father, tell me mother
Heavenly Mother and they said
When you pray, pray alone by yourself
In the secret room of your heart
Don't go out into the church filled with people and pray
God hears every secret that you say
See all those people praying on TV and in the churches
They like to make a big parade out of what they're doing
They think God hears them louder if they say it
Over and over and over and over and over again
But I say, God, but I say this
You are the prayer, Your eyes are the prayer
Your hand on your cheek, You are the prayer
Those words you want to speak, they are the prayer
That dance you make when you're by yourself
Just before your mother calls you on the phone
You are the prayer
I tell you what, you gotta take it back from them
Because the prayers belong to you
All you gotta do is say hey, hey
I'm down here too, I'm down here too, I'm down here too
And I hear you in the trees, and I hear you, and I'm near you
Wonder why there's so much suffering
I want to say thank you, thank you
Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you
I wanted to say thank you, thank you
I wanted to say, I wanted to say
You are where I like it best
You are where I like it best
You are where I like it best
That's the Lords' prayer, you are where I wanna be
So, Amen, just Amen, Amen, all by myself, Amen, just Amen
I'm so lonely, just Amen and I'm rising, rising, just Amen
You can look through my eyes
Hear through my heart, look through my eyes
