Lyrics

Prayer (Hold On)

Written By: Paul Morrissey

VERSE 1
Lonely are the men who try to break this world,
Consumed by greed for oil, for gold, diamonds and pearls,
Taking, never giving, ‘til there is nothing left,
Using the mask of ambition for what is really theft.

VERSE 2
Pointing out our differences to keep us apart,
Trying to crush the hopes and dreams within our hearts,
Avoiding responsibility by blaming someone else,
Finding fault with everything, except themselves.

BRIDGE 1
And I’d like to hope that there are those who see right through
The lies, the false promises and twisted points of view,
And I’d like to hope that there will be a change someday,
But until that day comes, I’ll just get down and pray:

CHORUS
For the child who never felt the warmth of a mother’s touch,
For the hard working man who can never seem to do enough,
For the shattered dreams that scatter the many paths of life,
For those who are on the verge of giving up the fight,

Hold on, just hold, hold on.

VERSE 3
Now I know that these destructive men may only be a few,
But I also know what the power of a single person can do,
Although their hate is strong, love is much too strong to die,
But we’ll never learn to love each other unless we try.

BRIDGE 2
And I’d like to hope that there are those whose hopes are the same,
Understanding’s much more useful than laying blame,
And I’d like the hope that there will be a change someday,
But until that day comes, I’ll just get down and pray:

CHORUS
