praying for me

THE LIKENESS PRESENTS… “PRAYING FOR ME”, UK TOP HIT.
WRITTEN IN 2004, CHIEFLY BY ANDREW SIDWELL AND JOSH FITZPATRICK,
THOUGH SOME LINES FROM JOHN FINN, AND OTHER PEOPLE WHO WERE
AROUND IN THE SCIENCE CLASSROOM AT THE TIME (BUT NOT THE
ONES WHO THOUGHT WE WERE BEING SERIOUS, BECAUSE THEY JUST
THOUGHT WE WERE SAD AND SHUNNED US. AH WELL.).

we can’t get rid of you
praying’s just what we do
we don’t know who’s praying for who
cos everywhere we go you’re there
we can’t get you out of our hair
can’t pretend that you don’t care

he’s gonna forgive us for all our offences
i wanna sin but i’m afraid of the consequences
you want to banish sin from whence it came
but it’s a part of us now and we’ve only got ourselves to blame

you’re really praying for me
any fool can see

sleeping in an empty bed
at least until i get wed
i’ll have eternal life after i’m dead
just like the bible said

when we sin, we seek forgiveness
when there’s evil, you’ll always deliver us
you made us perfect, that’s how we are
cos we pray to you now with all our hearts

you’re really praying for me
any fool can see
