lyrics

Lord
I must be strong now
I don`t belong now
In this world anymore

I`ll say a final prayer for
Those I care for
Who`ve kept my company

My destiny is clear
I`m dying to have you near
To me

Lord
I don`t belong now
If you are waiting
I am not afraid to die

I`m prepared to go
Divide my body and soul
[. From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/madeleine-peyroux-lyrics/a-prayer-lyrics.html .]
Won`t you

Lord
I won't be long now
If you are waiting
I am not afraid to die

Have mercy
Lord, I`m told it`s paradise
To have and to hold you

Lord
I must be strong now
I don`t belong now
In this world anymore

Lord
I won`t be long now
If you are waiting
I am not afraid to die
