Vertical Horizon - Prayer For An Innocent Man Lyrics




Oh won't you listen O Lord to my plea for justice
Can't you hear my cry for help
Try to heed my honest prayer
And judge me in my favor

'Cause you know my heart
You have come to me at night
But it's so hard to speak no evil
In a hole deprived of light

So I pray for you to answer
And to turn to me and smile
Shower me with love to save me
From demons deep inside

Protect me as you would your own eyes
In the shadows of your wings
And learn to know the sound that echoes
When an innocent man sings
When an innocent man sings
When he sings

So I lie with all my failures
Praying to my best friend's ghost
Time to kneel instead of sitting
And let me do thy bidding
Won't you let me do thy bidding yeah
Help me do thy bidding

    'Cause You know my heart/You have come to me at night/But it's so hard to speak no evil/In a hole deprived of light.
    Exactly, how it feels, sitting in a bunker, in the middle, of a war. If I could have, sung this song, then, I would have.
