Song Description

During a troubled and stressful time of life, a relative's ghost returns from the grave to offer advice and put things in perspective


Don't Forget To Pray
Music and Lyrics by Drew Evan Stewart

One dark and foggy four a.m. with a full moon in my eyes,
As I sped down FM 199
It was getting' pretty hard to see, so I pulled into a station
Just across 67 where an eerie light did shine
Then I recognized the place, my heart and mind began to race
Back to a time when I was just a boy
Outside here I'd run and play
Once upon a yesterday,
& My Grandpa ran his business here with joy.

About that time a familiar figure floated round the tree.
I could see right through him, but I know he saw through me...

He said son you aught not to be out driving in this kind of weather
But then you always thought you were bullet proof and cool
He said come on in and pour you some peanuts in a dr. pepper
If you don't slow it down out there, you might meet another fool

He said I ain't been watching over you I don't know why I'm here now
If you knew as I 'bout life & death you'd understand and how
Life on Earth is oh so short so you need to try each day
To learn all and help all that you can & get out of your own way
And don't forget to pray

He said a part of me wishes I could have hung around a little longer
But the truth is it was time for me to go.
& you younger folks weren't near as smart, as you were entertaining
Full of passion, on the run, seeking pleasure and finding none

Things ain't near as complicated as you make them out to be
Try to keep it simple. Simple things are best you see
Life on Earth is oh so short so you need to try each day
To love all and help all that you can & get out of your own way
And don't forget to pray

Lightning flashed, he was gone, and I had chills from head to toe
And like that dark day years before, I was sad to see him go.
It felt so real, but I had my doubts, 'til I really, opened up my eyes
I saw and felt his presence all around & this time I'm takin' his advice

'Cause things ain't near as complicated as I've made them out to be.
I'm gonna try to keep it simple. Simple things are best I see!
Oh........Life on Earth is oh so short, so I'm gonna to try each day,
To learn all and help all that I can, & stay out of my own way
And don't forget to pray.......
Don't forget to pray.......
