"Pray" as written by and Eef Barzelay....
Never much of a hopeful man
Nothing good to say
But I couldn't help it when I saw her
I had to know if
She don't know where to go
She don't know how to stay
And she don't know how good I can be
Or how much I can pray
I pray
And soon I know her a little more
She's everything I dream
But still I wonder what it would be like
If she left me
She don't know where to go
She don't know how to stay
But she don't know how good I can be
Or how much I still pray
I pray
There must be something that's following her
That keeps her from the stay
There must be something that makes me want to pray
Pray
Pray
I pray
She says she's alright, but she's not sure
And I'm not sure what that means
She says she's alright, but she needs some help
I don't know how
I don't know how
I don't know how

    General Commenti think these lyrics are incredible, and "hungry bird" is hugely underrated. many seem to think it lacks the usual "depth" to be found in a clem snide album, but i think maybe some people have their minds made up too soon. i don't know. it simply isn't true.

    My Interpretationpray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer

    and pray his heartfelt searching fails
    to navigate the twisted trails
    pray on him the golden light not shine
    and pray his guard dogs lose the scent
    the snakes find shelter in his tent
    pray the puddles reach beyond his knees

    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer

    pray the shiny metal tools
    lay rusting in his swimming pool
    and pray the water never wash him clean
    pray his daughters long to feel
    a stranger's hand to break the seal
    and pray the bed sheets tied in stubborn knots

    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer
    pray for the non believer

    pray the darkness eats his life
    behind his eyelids, painted white
    pray that a hungry bird consumes his heart
    pray that a hungry bird consumes his heart

    when somebody loves you
    it's no good, it's no good, it's no good
    unless he loves you all of the way
    and when somebody loves you
    it's no good, it's no good, it's no good
    unless he loves you all the way, all the way
