Percy Sledge – My Special Prayer lyrics

While the choir sang, Ave Maria
Oh I was singing with all my heart
And I sent a special prayer, up to heaven
That you'll return to me before I fall apart
While the choir sang, hallelujah
Whoa I was singing with all my heart
Darling please come back and never be mean again
And this will be (this will be) the answer to my prayer
And I'll wait, here for the answer
That you'll come back, come back right away, oh yeah
Oh if you stayed, away another hour
Well I don't think I could last another day
While the choir sang, oh sang, Ave Maria
Whoa I was singing with all my heart
Darling please, come back and never leave me again
Oh that would be (this will be) oh the answer to my prayer
Umm, umm, umm, um-hm
Umm, umm, umm, um-hm
Umm, umm, umm, um-hm
