Lyrics

Pray (C. Smith, G. Giusti, R. Bassett)

Verse 1:

There's a bottle that keeps me from feeling my pain
And it's stuck in my hand
Like a demon it's constantly calling
And moving my line in the sand

I can handle sticks and stones
But this one's digging my grave


Chorus:
And I pray, alone in the night
When no one is watching, just me and my pride
I take a good look at my life
Know that I'm falling, and that's why I'm calling your name
And I pray, and I pray


Verse 2:

Momma raised me to swear by the blood of the lamb
Many times I've been saved
By the angels and better believers
Now they're losing their faith

I can't handle my reflection
I don't know how to change

Chorus

Bridge:

And I pray for something more than
What I'm living today
Some kind of light at the end of this tunnel
To bury my shame, teach me to pray

Chorus
