Walkabouts

Walkabouts - Prayer For You

rate me

When you burn your kingdom

Through the ashes I will come

I know it makes no difference

But I can't leave ya to your fun

Usin' up your torch song gifts

Why do you rush the end along?

Actin' like you'll soon forget

The end is comin' on its own

Just this once

I'll say a prayer for you

Though I won't pretend to help

Just this once

I'll say a prayer for you

Burnin' up the floorboards

Burned every place you stood

Every second chance: firewood

Bad luck is a famous name

For what you brought yourself

And I'm too dumb to help

Just this once

I'll say a prayer for you

Though I won't pretend I'm right

If you ask

I'll say a prayer for you

They say the city don't give up

And I believe that's true (don't you?)

Ricochets from boom to bust

Like most of us

Who never cared enough...

Just this once

I'll say a prayer for you

Though I won't pretend I'm right

If you ask

I'll say a prayer for you

In the middle of the street

I will stop

I'll say a prayer for you

If that's what you really want

I will stop...

I'll say a prayer for you

In the middle of the street...
