It's easy or so it sometimes seems To believe that when you chase your dreams If you feel the fire play it once or twice You never chase your tail on the road to paradise
Then you see it doesn't mean a thing
So you say a prayer to miss an early grave Oh you say a prayer like someone who's a slave Yeah you say a prayer till midnight turns to day Oh you say a prayer and try and make your way.
Next time you don't know what to do When everything begins to come unglued If your situation is more than you can bear, Make your destination to the Lord in prayer
When you share with him all your cares, You'll know he's listening, you'll know he cares
And you say a prayer all your snares will come undone Oh you say a prayer like a bullet from a gun Yeah, you say a prayer tellin' all that's on your mind When you say a prayer, the answer's what you find
