  • I can hear the neighbors
    They're arguin' again
    And there hasn't been peace on our street
    Since who knows when
    I don't mean to listen in
    But the shoutin' is so loud
    I turn up the radio to drown it out
    And silently I say a little prayer

    But for the grace of God go I
    I must've been born a lucky guy
    Heaven only knows how I've been blessed
    With the gift of your love
    And I look around and all I see
    Is your happiness embracing me
    Oh Lord I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God

    I can see that old man
    He's walking past our door
    And I've been told that he's rich
    But he seems so poor
    'Cause no one comes to call on him
    And his phone it never rings
    He wanders through his empty home
    Surrounded by his things
    And silently I say a little prayer, yes I do

    But for the grace of God go I
    I must've been born a lucky guy
    Heaven only knows how I've been blessed
    With the gift of your love
    And I look around and all I see
    Is your happiness embracing me
    Oh Lord I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God

    I look around and all I see
    Is your happiness embracing me
    Oh Lord I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God
    Oh Lord I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God yeah

    Ooo ooo I'd be lost
    But for the grace of God, yeah
    Ooo ooo ooo ooo ooo Writer/s: CHARLOTTE CAFFEY, JANE WIEDLIN, KEITH LIONEL URBAN
