Lyrics

  • Save A Prayer

    [Intro]

    [Verse 1]
    You saw me standing by the wall
    Corner of a main street
    And the lights are flashing on your window sill
    All alone ain't much fun
    So you're looking for the thrill
    And you know just what it takes
    And where to go

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Verse 2]
    Feel the breeze deep on the inside
    Look you down into your well (Do-do-do-do-do)
    If you can, you'll see the world in all his fire (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Take a chance like all dreamers
    You can't find another way (Do-do-do-do-do)
    You don't have to dream it all
    Just live a day (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Verse 3]
    Pretty looking road
    I try to hold the rising floods that fill my skin (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Don't ask me why, I'll keep my promise
    Melt the ice (Do-do-do-do-do)
    And you wanted to dance
    So I asked you to dance
    But fear is in your soul (Do-do-do-do-do)
    Some people call it a one-night stand
    But we can call it paradise (Do-do-do-do-do)

    [Chorus]
    Don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    No, don't say a prayer for me now
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after
    Save it 'til the morning after

    [Bridge]
    Do-do-do-do-do
    Do-do-do, do-do-do, do-do

    [Outro]
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after
    Save a prayer 'til the morning after...

  • [Verse 1]
    Hold back the rain
    Yes we're miles away from nowhere
    And the wind doesn't have a name
    So call it what you want to call it
    Still blows down the lane

    [Chorus]
    And if the fires burn out there's only fire to blame
    (hold back the rain)
    No time for worry cause we're on the roam again
    (hold back the rain)
    The clouds all scatter and we ride the outside lane
    (hold back the rain)
    Not on your own so help me please hold back the rain

    [Verse 2]
    Okay go off and wander
    I'm guilty just the same
    Sometimes you're needed badly
    So please come back again

    [Chorus][x2]

    [Outro]
    Hold back the rain, hold back the rain. hold back the rain
    Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain
    (Hold back the rain), hold back the rain (hold back the rain)
    Hold back the rain (hold back the rain), hold back the rain
