Oh so I pray
Oh at night
I wake up praying
All day light
I pray to you
And hear my request
I ask of you
To save this baby

O look at the girl
From inside
Is cancer eaten
Is life deprived
And if so by who
Could it be you
I see no need
For a baby's wisdom for you

Oh God the girl
All yellow turned
Cheeks are swollen
And soul is burned

Oh but the girl
The girl is gone
And the deed is done
It must be wrong

Now I pray
My prayers not heard
Could it be your death
Death to mortal word

Oh and see her pain
And drain and drain
Could you be deaf
And blind my friend
Oh and so we hold
Can you not hear
Can you not see
And if with words
You could change the way
Things are arranged
Surely you'd be speaking
Seeking no change

Oh but the girl
Deaf dumb and blind
From the cancer burning
Deep down inside
Oh but the deed is done
And the girl is gone
And I see no faith
That I have won

Well you may find you're little
You may find your tracks
You may go
For me the girl is gone
Oh you may find you're attraction
To me the baby's gone
