Your words are sharp as a knife
What can I say when you are always right?
Silently I will bleed
No one will notice the appalling sight

If I were a praying kind I’d do it

Chose to live like a last night on earth
But life can be long with no near danger
You had to have a better plan
And worry about tomorrow like everyone else

If I were a praying kind I’d do it

Expectations were too high
And the hype was way too loud
I’ve never asked for it
But you just could not help
gushing about the apple of your eyes

When I fall I’ll make sure it’s out of sight
If I were a praying kind I’d do it

Waiting for decision
Waiting for your final words

Can I have some influence?
Is that me or is that you who’s in charge?
Dare to be happy when nothing is certain
One misstep will send you spiraling down

If I were a praying kind I’d do it

Yes I have known way too much
To refuse the obvious pick

Looking for the bigger challenge
Looking for the bigger chunk to bite
Then I saw the cost of dreaming

But seriously how could smart ones be so blind?
If I were a praying kind I’d do it
