The moment I wake up
Before I put on my makeup (makeup)
I say a little prayer for you
And while combing my hair, now
And wondering what dress to wear, now (wear, now)
I say a little prayer for you

Forever (forever), forever ('ever)
You'll stay in my heart and I will love you
Forever (forever), and ever (ever)
We never will part, oh, how I love you
Together (together), together (together)
That's how it must be
To live without you would only mean heartbreak for me

Mmh
I run for the bus, dear
While riding I think of us, dear (us, dear)
I say a little prayer for you
And at work I just take time
And all through my coffee break time (break time)
I say a little prayer for you

Forever (forever), forever ('ever)
You'll stay in my heart and I will love you
Forever (forever) and ever (ever)
We never will part, oh, how I love you
Together (together), together (together)
That's how it must be
To live without you would only mean heartbreak for me
Nobody but me

Forever ('ever), and ever (ever)
You'll stay in my heart and I will love you
Forever (forever), and ever (ever)
We never will part, oh, how I love you
Together (together), together (together)
That's how it must be
To live without you would only mean heartbreak for me

Mmh-mhm
My darling, believe me (believe me)
For me there is no one but you
Please love me true
I'm in love with you
(Answer my prayer) answer my prayer, babe
(Answer my prayer) say you love me true
(Answer my prayer) answer my prayer, baby
(Answer my prayer) yeah

Forever (forever), and ever (ever)
you'll stay (ever) in my heart and I will love you
Forever (forever), and ever (ever)
we never will part, oh, how I love you
Together (together), together (together)
That's how it must be
To live without you would only mean heartbreak for me
Oh, nobody but me

My darling, believe me (believe me)
For me there is no one but you
Please love me true
This is my prayer (answer my prayer, baby)
Answer my prayer now, babe (answer my prayer, baby)
This is my prayer (answer my prayer, baby)
Answer it right now, babe (answer my prayer, baby)
Say you love me true (answer my prayer, baby)
This is my prayer, baby (answer my prayer, baby)
I'm in love with you (answer my prayer)

    General Commenti cant believe only one other perosn has commented on this song!
    it is about longing for someone, and thinking about them, but most of all praying every spare moment for them to want you.

    General Commenti love this song! it has to be one of my all time favourites, but i only got into it after hearing 'gene' do a live cover of it. then of course it was a man singing but he changed the words slightly (like 'dress') so it didnt sound too bizarre. it is very rare for me to like any cover versions which just shows that this is a great song and that gene are a geat band who can do it justice. this is just my round about way of plugging gene. check out their lyrics, theyre great.

    General CommentSuprised this song has so few comments. One of the classic's from the 60's.
    Excellent song of love and hope from a time when life was simplier.
