I shivered and listened
To a cold nights warning
I've never walked closer
To the edge of the dawning
Every step that I take
Could carry me homeward
They used to pray for me

They knew that I was falling
I'll wash away my sorrows
Down by the river
Put my face in the cold wind
Won't you pray
Oh won't you pray for me
I have fallen
Oh won't you pray for me

This violent whispers
Were trying to take me
They knew that I would go
But now they forsake me
I'll wash away my sorrows
Down by the river
Put my face in the cold wind
Won't you pray
Oh won't you pray for me
I have fallen
Oh won't you pray for me
