"Pray For Forgiveness" as written by Linda Perry and Alicia Keys....
Beautiful garden, where have you gone?
My self delusions are leaving me in the storm
Taking for granted, all the goodness that I've found
Somewhere I lost all, the control came crashing down

And I pray for forgiveness
Look for the answer
Cause it's hard
For me to pretend
Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can't you see
This state that I'm in
No one would notice
Nobody noticed
Cause it's me where it began

Beautiful morning, please don't wake me from my sleep
Cause I need some comfort, to regain my sanity
I don't want to feel this crazy,
I don't want to feel this heartache
Shattered in a million pieces
I'm so broken hearted
No where left to run
No where left to go
So I hope

I pray for forgiveness
Look for the answer
Cause it's hard for me to pretend

Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can't you see
This state that I'm in?
And no one would notice
Nobody noticed
That it's me, where it began
And I pray for forgiveness within

I swear that everyday I feel like my mind is haunting me
I think of every little stupid mistake that is made
This time I'll have the strength to gather myself
I'm falling to pieces

And I pray for forgiveness
Look for the answer
Cause it's hard for me to pretend
Look to my mother
Call to the captain
Can't you see
This state that I'm in
Pray for forgiveness
Looking for justice
Searching for answers
Call to my mother
Pray for forgiveness
Breaking the silence

Nobody knows it, nobody noticed
That's it me
Where it began

    General CommentBeautiful morning, please don't wake me from my sleep
    Cause I need some comfort, to regain my sanity
    ? I don't want to feel this crazy,
    I don't want to feel this heartache
    Shattered in a million peices
    I'm so broken hearted
    No where left to run
    No where left to go

    Lyric CorrectionThis is her best song by far!


    Beautiful garden where have you gone
    My self-delusions are leaving me in the storm
    Taking for granted all the goodness that I've found
    Somewhere I lost all, the control came crashing down

    And I pray for forgiveness, look for the answers
    Cuz it's hard for me to pretend
    Look to my mother, call to the captain
    Can't you see this state that I'm in
    And no one would know this, nobody noticed
    Cuz it's me where it begins


    Beautiful morning please don't wake me from my sleep
    Cuz I need some comfort to regain my sanity
    And I don't wanna feel this crazy, I don't wanna feel discarded
    Shattered into million pieces

    I'm so brokenhearted
    Nowhere left to run
    Nowhere left to go
    So I hope

    And I pray for forgiveness, look for the answers
    Cuz it's hard for me to pretend
    Look to my mother, call to the captain
    Can't you see this state that I'm in
    And no one would know this, nobody noticed
    That it's me where it begins
    And I pray for forgiveness within

    I swear that everyday I feel like my mind is haunting me
    I think of every little stupid mistake that has been made
    This time I don't have the strength to gather myself
    And I'm falling to pieces

    And I pray for forgiveness, look for the answers
    Cuz it's hard for me to pretend
    Look to my mother, call to the captain
    Can't you see this state that I'm in
    I pray for forgiveness, looking for justice
    Searching for answers, call to my mother
    Pray for forgiveness, breaking the silence
    And nobody knows this, nobody noticed
    That it's me where it begins

    My InterpretationWhen you have a really good life or good relationship and you throw it away cuz you're too prideful and then you turn to your mom and to G-d that your life will improve <3
