Brantley Gilbert – Lost Soul's Prayer Lyrics



Brantley Gilbert – Lost Soul's Prayer Lyrics


[Verse 1]
I was brought up in the front row
That  fire and brimstone
Old  school reverend, straight and narrow
Man, I always had a thing for the path less traveled
Fast lane to that back road, eventually to that back door

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm  out on my own and I'm a little bit faded
Don't  even know if I should even be prayin'
But it's all in my heart so I might as well say it then
I  hope you're listenin'

[Chorus]
Before I lay my head down
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me
So  Lord I'm prayin' now
Forgive me for my sin
Knowin' good and well I'll probably do it again
And be with them people lookin' down on me
But Lord don't ever let 'em put their hands on me
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer

[Verse 2]
I can see my mama now and my good girl at home
They're both on their knees, both by the phone
And I'm the reason for the tears in both their eyes
And I'm the reason they're beggin' you to just get me through this shit one more night

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm out on my own and I'm a little bit faded
Don't even know if I should even be prayin'
But if you think there's somethin' in me worth savin'
Then I hope you savin' me

[Chorus]
Before I lay my head down
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me
So Lord I'm prayin' now
Forgive me for my sin
Knowin' good and well I'll probably do it again
Tell my girl don't worry, I'ma be alright
Tell my mama I'ma see her when the sun rise
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer

[Pre-Chorus]
I'm out on my own and I'm a little bit faded
And I don't even know if I should even be prayin'
But if you think there's somethin' in me worth savin'
Then I pray you save me

[Chorus]
Before I lay my head down
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
I got the Devil on me
So Lord I'm prayin' now
Forgive me for my sin
Give me the strength to never do it again
And be with them people lookin' down on me
But Lord don't ever let 'em put their hands on me
I turn them lights out, don't know if you can hear me up there
It's just another lost soul's prayer
Yeah, I'm just another lost soul

[Outro]
Amen
