All for Nothing

  • Use your eyes, oh father
    'Cause I had a dream last night
    I saw her body broke, still and cold where she lay
    And it was all for nothing
    This love I gave

    And I pray you keep her safe
    Bring her home, keep harm away
    And I pray, don’t let me down
    Bring her back 'cause I need her now
    I pray, someone else can take her place
    Don’t make it all for nothing
    This love we made

    She’s my best friend, oh mother
    No other woman could turn my eye, drag me away
    With the blessing comes the worry, and I worry
    Don’t make it all for nothing
    The love we made

    And I pray you keep her safe
    Bring her home, keep harm away
    And I pray, don’t let me down
    Bring her back 'cause I need her now
    I pray, someone else can take her place
    Don’t make it all for nothing
    This love we made

    Falling in love is like playing with fire
    Pulling me down but it’s takin’ me higher
    I know it’s my fault and I’m asking for favors
    I needed a knife but you gave me the razor

    I pray you keep her safe
    Bring her home, keep harm away
    And I pray, don’t let me down
    Bring her back 'cause I need her now
    I pray, someone else can take her place
    Don’t make it all for nothing
    This love we made
    Don’t make it all for nothing
    This love we made Writer/s: FRANCIS EG WHITE, MATTHEW CARDLE
