Leela James – Prayer lyrics

Living in a cold cold world
Sometimes it gets hard
And you feel like
You can't make it out

When I was just a little girl
My momma told me
Don't you worry
Hold your head, and wear a smile
Cause you gonna have this
When you feel like things aint going your way
Just take a moment and pray

Where would I be (I don't know)
Where would I be (oh no no)
Where would I be if you aint never heard a prayer from me (tell me what)
What would I do (oh)
What would I do (I don't know)
What would I do if I didn't have you to be there for me (yeah.. Hmm hmm)

I'm so thankful for
All the things you done
Showing me right from wrong
?? Enclinching?? My soul
When all my friends turned their back on me
You made me see
You're the only one I need

Where would I be (I don't know)
Where would I be (oh no no)
Where would I be if you aint never heard a prayer from me
What would I do (oh)
What would I do (oh no no)
What would I do if I didn't have you to be there for me (and I thank you lord)

Chorus X2

Wait in the midnight hour
I called your name
Cause I knew you were watching over me
And I don't know just where I would be
If somebody never said a prayer for me

Where would I be
Where would I be (and I thank)
Where would I be if you aint never heard a prayer from me (I thank you lord)
What would I do (where would I be without you)
What would I do
What would I do if I didn't have you to be there for me (and what would I do)

(repeating in the background)

I just wanna thank
I just wanna thank you lord
Oh
For never leaving my side
For never leaving my side
My tragics, and all my tremblations
You stayed beside me
And I thank
I thank
I thank
I thank

(just wanna thank you lord repeating)

Oh lord
Somebody ought to believe
Oh my lord has been good to me yo
Oh my lord has been good to me
And I'm gonna tell the world
I'm gon sing and shout his name

(chorus starting in the background)

Whoo! Oh lord
Where would I be
Where would I be
I wouldn't be standing here tonight yo
And I wouldn't be singing this song to yall

Through my tragics and tremblations
You stayed beside me

(chorus fades out)
