Lost Soul.s Prayer

Gilbert, Brantley
I was brought up in the front row
That fire and brimstone
Old school reverend, straight and narrow
Man I always had a thing for the path less traveled
Fast lane lead to the back road, eventually to that back door

I'm out of my own and I'm a little bit faded
Don't even know if I should even be prayin'
But it's all in my heart so I mine as well say it now
I hope you're listenin'

Before I lay my head down I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me so Lord I'm prayin' now you forgive me for my sins
Knowin' good and well I'll probably do it again
And be with the people lookin' down on me
But Lord don't ever let 'em put their hands on me
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer

I can see my mama now and good girl at home
They're both on their knees, both by the phone
And I'm the reason for the tears in both their eyes
And I'm the reason they're beggin' you to just get me through the shit one more night

I'm out of my own and I'm a little bit faded
Don't even know if I should even be prayin'
But if you think there's somethin' in me worth savin'
Then I hope you save me

Before I lay my head down I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me so Lord I'm prayin' now you forgive me for my sins
Knowin' good and well I'll probably do it again
Tell my girl don't worry, I'ma be alright
Tell my mama I'ma see her when the sun rise
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer

I'm out of my own and I'm a little bit faded
Don't even know if I should even be prayin'
But if you think there's somethin' in me worth savin'
Then I pray you save me

Before I lay my head down I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me so Lord I'm prayin' now you forgive me for my sins
Give me the strength to never do it again
And bow with them people lookin' down on me
But Lord never let 'em put their hands on me
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer
Yeah, I'm just another lost soul

Amen
