"Two Hands Of A Prayer" as written by and Ben Harper....
First time that I saw her she had white doves in her eyes
She spoke to me but I could not reply, not reply
She was a stranger I had known for years
She brought to me so many smiles and tears, smiles and tears

The two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
("Time")

Time it slowly drips into the past, into the past
And finds a home where all echoes rest, where echoes rest ("With a cold rest")
She softly kissed my mind, my mind, and whispered what will we do with time, do
With time

The two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer

Am I the man I choose to be, choose to be,
Or just the man I used to be, used to be
Am I the man I want to be, I want to be
This question, it keeps haunting me, haunting me

The two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer
Together like the two hands of a prayer

    General CommentI love this song, it's kinda weird at the begining, and it reminds me of pink floyd a bit. This song reminds me of a girl I used to know a long time ago, or so it seemed
