Empty Prayers Lyrics

I tried my best to keep you here
But it's hard to hold a shadow
You said goodbye but I couldn't hear
Too busy praying for a miracle

And you left me on my knees
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency to intervene while I was begging God for
you to love me

I prayed about us every night
Boy I know you had to hear me
You could've stopped me then and told the truth
But instead you pulled the pillow over your head

And you left me on my knees
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency to intervene while I was begging God for
you to love me

You should've told me it was useless, that I was praying empty prayers
But you hopped in your car, pulled out your keys
While you were leaving, I was begging God for you to love me

And I know that He had something better to do
Than to sit and listen to a broken-hearted fool
Could've been saving the world from a tragedy, but instead He was listening
to me
I was asking, begging for a sign to bring comfort to this lonely heart of
mine
But apparently you're not what I need
I guess you walking out was Him answering

You left me on my knees
You just walked out the door
You didn't even have the decency to intervene while I was begging God for
you to love me

I tried my best to keep you here
But it's hard to hold a shadow
