The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup
(By the time I get to Phoenix
She'll be rising)
I say a little prayer for you
(She'll find the note
I left hanging on her door)

While combing my hair now
(She'll laugh when she reads
The part that says I'm leaving)
And wondering what dress to wear now
I say a little prayer for you
('Cause I've left that girl
So many times before)

Forever and forever

(By the time I make Albuquerque
She'll be working)
You'll stay in my heart
And I will love you

Forever and ever
(She'll probably stop at lunch
And give me a call)
We never will part
And how I love you

Together, together
(But she'll just hear that
Phone keep on ringing)
That's how it must be
To live without you would
(Off the wall)
Only mean heartbreak for me
(That's all)

I run for the bus, dear
While riding, I think of us, dear
(By the time I make Oklahoma
She'll be sleeping)
I say a little prayer for you
(She'll turn softly and
Call my name out low)

At work I just take time
(And she'll cry just to feel)
And all through my coffee break-time
(I'd really leave her)

I say a little prayer for you
(Though time and time
I've tried to tell her so)
I say a little prayer for you
(She just didn't know
I would really go)

No, she didn't know I'd go
