Praying For an Angel

Praying For An Angel

(Verse 1)

She wakes up to another day
She’s way too tired to want to play
With the other kids
The Doctor says that she’ll be fine
It’s going to take a little time
She can’t help it
Sometimes when daddy turns out her light
She hears her mama crying in the night
And she listens close
They beg to God to save her life
They ask for help to get them by
But they don’t really know

(Chorus)
And, she prays for an angel
To watch over her tonight
She knows only time will tell
If things will be all right
She’s hoping that an angel
Will see the tears she’s cried
She’s praying that an angel will stay by her side

(Verse 2)

His bat and ball sit on the shelf
Cause lately he’s not feeling well
Enough to play
He used to dig holes in the dirt
Now most days his tummy hurts
He’ll stay inside today
He dreams of trains and railroad tracks
And for the day his hair grows back
He hopes it will
For now he’ll do the best he can
He’ll be his mama’s little man
It’s all uphill

(Chorus-substituting he/him)

(Bridge)

Their little hearts need hope to stay alive
Their little arms need wings to help them fly

(Repeat Chorus-substituting they/their)
