“Pray to God” – by Gordon Caldwell

Lyrics:


I’d be lying if I said that
I knew just what I was doing
Cause we’re all fumbling, falling down
To get back up and start again
But life is much to short to waste it
Chasing ghosts and pleasing fools
We blink and then it’s gone
So someone tell me what I should have done
And what else I should know
Like where did it all go?

I would try to pray to God if I
Thought that someone might be listening
I’m lost but know that I will find a way
Cause as far as I can tell
As far as I can tell we’re on our own

So what if I might play the same 3 chords in almost all my songs?
They’re just a vessel for these words to get them out into the world
And sometimes when we don’t get what we want
It’s what we really need
I’m trying not to place my worth
And self-esteem on what I’m told
And other peoples points of view
Cause none of them are really true
But how are we to know
What to keep and to let go?

I would try to pray to God if I
Thought that someone might be listening
I’m lost but know that I will find a way
Cause as far as I can tell
As far as I can tell we’re on our own

So tell me what does this all mean
When bodies start to mutiny
They’re jumping ship, they’re leaving town
We’re looking up, but feeling down
Don’t take that anger, push it back
Into the corners of your mouth
If only we could know the words
Inside our bones could change the world
Cause then we might not hate ourselves
And live our lives for someone else
We’re sick and tired of being used
We’re drowned in greed and self-abuse
But what if love’s the only way
To pull ourselves back up again
So then what would we do
When the love it starts with you?

I would try to pray to God if I
Thought that someone might be listening
I’m lost but know that I will find a way
Cause as far as I can tell
As far as I can tell we’re on our own

    • Thank you so much! I really appreciate you taking the time to read/listen.. I’m actually recording an album at the moment, which this will be on. Lyrics have always been incredibly important to me (and just words in general) so it’s really nice to get such positive feedback 🙂
