Bloc Party. - The Prayer Lyrics




Lord give me grace and dancing feet
And the power to impress
Lord give me grace and dancing feet
Let me outshine the moon

Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
Second best, runner-up
Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
To want more than is given to you?
Than is given to you

Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle them with my wit
Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle, I will outshine them all

Standing on the packed dance floor
Our bodies thrown in time
Silent on the weekdays
Tonight I claim what's mine

Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
Second best, runner-up
Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
To want more than is given to you?
Than is given to you

Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle them with my wit
Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle, I will outshine them all

Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle them with my wit
Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle, I will outshine them all

  1. francois syed

    That short hair dancing girl ! I fell in love with her.. she 's a fashion

  2. Nietzsche Business

    Inspired by Suede's "The Power"

  3. Syd Pope Brown

    I’m a 40something woman in 2019 and you have no idea how often this song pops into my head as I try to bluff my way through life.

    Louii Rdgz

    Im a man in 20s i thought i was only 1, way to rock✌!!

  4. kusjsd ksdust

    need for speed ❤️

  5. Anthony Strunk

    This makes me miss my party days! The things is I didn’t know when to stop I needed more and more and more till it wasn’t fun anymore and I had to Stop

  6. Ryan Cooper

    pro street?

  7. Joshua Thompson

    Kele has a stutter, so it could be that the drugs help him stutter less and make him feel unstoppable (this is also mentioned in the song On).

  8. Francis Langevin

    Yeah i love your song. 2:15 to 2:27 yaaaah

  9. Destroyt Music Agan

    Who else heard this on the preview for Smallville's Season 6 episode Nemesis in 2007?

  10. giammarco riccioni

    It's unbelievable that a lot of BP remix has fare more views compare to the original version.

  11. Insipidminstrel

    Ryan Cooper!!!

  12. Mayra Becerril

    mega rolota!!

  13. Adam Keighley

    The chorus makes this song

  14. Lauriston Brewster

    2:07 years and years later and this part still transfixes me.

  15. Mason M

    200k views..what in the world?

  16. Michael Thomas

    Man im 54..love this song.. Mabey too much cough syrup for me. Haha. Bring it on. Love this song.my fav girl.. Well. Girl with rat blond hair was great.. But nerd shy girl with dark hair bangs.. Hey she was a cutie

  17. Apollo Clone

    I first heard this music video when it came out 9 years ago. i was 17. Didnt realize they were all on acid lol.

  18. Alessandro Tioli

    Was totally into this song while playing PGR 4. Still gives me the goosebumps. The humming in the beginning, the lyrics, the guitar solo, everything is great. Pretty freaky video as well. Thanks for sharing!

  19. Ashley Morales

    2019 AND STILL MY FAVORITE!

  20. Stephen Gale

    I had a lot on my plate and had chemical assistance for business use when this was radio played in daytime - it would fill my head ( the tune) and I’d picture the narrative which was unusually direct ( for want of better ) in describing a common theme to us all I guess , But had never been put so brilliantly to suit 7” single time . Ten yrs later I’m watching this for first time and my druggie interpretation back then was exactly what the band meant after all - These fellas are as clever and original in style as Van Der Graff Generator were back in 1969. Genius stuff - hope they are being appreciated in 2019 and if their creative juices did dry up , the album serves as testament to real accessible but non mainstream music.

  21. Kermunist

    how is this not a famous song wtf 143k views that it

    WeHappyGamers

    It is in a need for speed game.

  22. Burn Bobquist

    A weekend in the city was an extrodinary album. One of the best album of the 00s.

    Alessandro Tioli

    Burn Bobquist loved that album!

  23. jackie dolman

    God I haven’t heard this in ages . Love it 😍

  24. Sam Sadeghi

    2018 this is still a tune 🤟🏻

  25. Silver Man

    This song hits, when you require alcohol or drugs to escape reality and let loose somewhere and feel invincible for a moment. TONIGHT MAKE ME UNSTOPPABLE! I feel that some nights boozed up lol

  26. Shawn

    NHL 2k8

  27. The Ash

    Kuvshinov Ilya ❤

  28. Marvin Rodriguez

  29. sentient88

    They would be huge if they sold their soul like the weekend did

    Luke S.

    They were huge.

  30. Hink Olgen

    fuck the games or movies!! i am here because i like Block Party from the beginning!!!

  31. Braden Georgeson

    This song man. Something about the hopefulness of the lyrics contrasted with nervous behavior and fleeting escapism of drugs is too true. Going out always treads the same territory. Anticipation, hopefulness, brief happiness, coming down, reality. Weekend in the city does these themes justice. I love you bloc party. x

    bad mother fucka

    Definitely bro, have a good one man.

    joão sousa

    You said everything :0

  32. Atprick B

    Still love this song. Whenever it comes on...I fuck it up on the dancefloor!!!

  33. Dean

    Is this song about social anxiety, or is it about craving a high (cocaine) whilst bored with friends?

    carloo

    Dean Quinn I don't know bro

    Enrique M.P.

    I'm willing to bet the video tries to tackle those issues, but the song meaning it's really straight forward on exploring in oneself.

    Silver Man

    Anxiety, neuroticism, substance abuse and escapism!

  34. Matheus Caiaffa

    I used to like the remixes. But now im just in love with the original

    Lingon Berry

    Matheus Caiaffa so I’m not the only one who is revisiting Bloc Party. Man I miss them so much. And my childhood

  35. Angus Reid

    Best video ever! Is this big in the states?
