"I Say A Prayer For You" as written by and Lisa Cowling Miranda Cooper....
Remember when you watched me sleeping
And I pretend I didn’t know
I gave you everything worth giving
Please don’t forget me
Or worse regret me
Pretending I’m O.K
Regrets today
But your green eyes own me
And I just feel lonely
Deep in thought of you
Not your fault it’s nothing that you’ve put me through
Didn’t think that I’d need you

I said a prayer for you
Felt I needed to
I was wrong, baby
I wish I’d held your hand
Tried to understand
So here’s a sorry from me

Long lost hesitations
Falling from my mind
Should have stayed a moment more
And given us some time

Long lost conversations
Time & time again
Everything we look for
Washed away in heavy rain

Remember when you used to call my phone
Checking I was safe and I got home
Sweetest dreams and then I love you
When I didn’t even ask you to
Now you won’t even return my calls
No memory of me at all
I wonder if you still remember
The 2 years we were together

I said a prayer for you
Coz I needed to
So here’s a sorry from me
I want to believe
This ain’t for real
And you still love me
But I’m wasting my time
It’s not me on your mind
Here’s a sorry from me

    General CommentI can't believe this song has no comments, it's one of Girls Aloud's best and Nicola sings it amazing. Definatly my favourite.

    It's about breaking up with someone and wanting them back. You think you did something wrong even though you didn't and you're hoping the person you love doesn't forget and regret you. The person you love has moved on but you haven't so you're praying for them to come back because they were everything you ever wanted.
