In my perfect world
There's no need to right the wronged
Laid down my burden
I know I did not carry the weight
Not sure to who responsibility belonged
I turned a blind eye
While waiting for the hand of fate to still the waters
Heal all the broken hearts
And hope it could be done without a sacrifice
And maybe I just wouldn't pay the price
I've fought this long enough

Now I send the Prayer to heaven for the chance to be
A better man than the man I see
I send the Prayer to heaven, lay your hands on me
I ain't a saint but to this I swear I send the Prayer

And now I feel all I can do is not enough
My Rome is burning and I'm standing at the deep abyss
But every passion started with an act of love
And every act of love, started with a single kiss
Father, father your gift was my world of light
And I've betrayed you with a single Judas kiss
I've been my own executioner
But it's not just me anymore

Now I send the Prayer to heaven for the chance to be
A better man than the man I see
I send the Prayer to heaven, lay your hands on me
I ain't a saint but to this I swear
Burn my wasted pride
Open your heart to this
There's a voice that's crying somewhere
Deep inside my soul for shelter

Now I send the Prayer to heaven for the chance to be
A better man than the man I see
I send the Prayer to heaven, lay your hands on me
I ain't a saint but to this I swear

Now I send the Prayer to heaven for the chance to be
A better man than the man I see
I send the Prayer to heaven, lay your hands on me
I ain't a saint but to this I swear I send the Prayer...

Now I send a Prayer to heaven...
