  • Dear lord this is a prayer
    Just let me know if you're really there
    Dear lord come gain control
    Oh lord come save my soul

    Give me dignity restore my sanity
    Oh lord come rescue me
    Dear lord my vanity is killing me
    Oh lord it's killing me, it's killing me

    If you give your soul to heaven
    And your soul begins to bleed
    Remember all the sevens
    Don't turn up when you need

    If you do believe in glory
    Then please believe a fact
    Give your soul to heaven
    You won't get it back

    I'm down deep and i need your help
    There's no one to turn to and i can't help myself
    Dear lord hear this call
    Oh lord save my fall

    I'm scared i doubt
    Dear lord help me out
    I despair my lord my prayer my lord
    Care my lord

    Dear lord take the time
    I believe your story now you believe mine
    Oh lord i'm on my knees
    Oh lord please please beware

    My lord oh care my lord
    Give me dignity
    Restore my sanity
    My vanity is killing me

    If you give your soul to heaven
    And your soul begins to bleed
    Remember all the sevens
    Don't turn up when you need

    If you do believe in glory
    Then please believe a fact
    Give your soul to heaven
    You won't get it back Writer/s: PHILIP PARRIS LYNOTT, WILLIAM SCOTT GORHAM

  • Tony from San DiegoAlways loved this one. Phil was my favorite song writer ever, could definitely identify with so many thoughts he conveyed. You knew he was going to die young just by listening to this once.
