"A Prayer for Every Year" as written by and Linda/foster Thompson....
Do you remember me long ago on bended knee?
I prayed to You with childhood fantasies
Well, I'm all grown up now
Can You still help somehow?
I'm not a child but my heart still can dream
Please hear my prayer tonight
And help me do what's right
Not for myself but for the world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my prayer for every year

May kindness rule our lives
Not just the strong survive
Sweet tears for all the thousand years gone by
This is the world, I pray, we will share someday
And we begin by reaching out my hand

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my prayer for every year

Woo
What is this illusion called?
The innocence of youth
Maybe only in that fine belief will we ever find the truth

No more lives torn apart (torn apart)
That wars would never start (never start)
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend( have a friend)
And right would always win (always win)
And love would never end (never end)
This is my prayer for every year
This is the prayer I hope you'll hear
This is my prayer for every year
Hmmmm...
