Song and a Prayer
By Mark Mangold

Been livin' behind a tune since I don't know when - Always have some song runnin' through my head - Goin' through the motions half the time - Never cared much 'til I solved the rhyme - Never had much money, didn't care when I did - Made it through by the skin of my fingertips - Oh, another story's just begun - I look around when it's all said and done - There's something there - A Song and a Prayer A Song and a Prayer - Gonna make it there on a Song and a Prayer - Don't see my reflection in the mirror - Look deeper into the things I do - I don't give a damn about the clothes I wear - If you get caught up in the image you'll become the one who's dressin' you - Never saw myself as a gamblin' man, but the stakes 'been runnin' high - This world can bring you to your knees - I look around and it's all surrounding me - There's nothing there But a Song and a Prayer A Song and a Prayer - Gonna make it there on a Song and a Prayer - Love and money come and go - So many things (seem) out of my control - But listen to the silence, there's something real low - Tryin' to be heard Gotta listen so close - It's a message to someone tryin' to be heard - When it's all said and done try to love someone - It's something I know for sure All I know for sure - Is a Song and a Prayer A Song and a Prayer, yeh - Gonna make it there on a Song and a Prayer - Hangin' by a thread on a Song and a Prayer - Hangin' by a heartbeat on a Song and a Prayer - Song and a Prayer
