my lyricsbox
When you burn your kingdom
Through the ashes I will come
I know it makes no difference
But I can't leave ya to your fun
Usin' up your torch song gifts
Why do you rush the end along?
Actin' like you'll soon forget
The end is comin' on its own

Just this once
I'll say a prayer for you
Though I won't pretend to help
Just this once

I'll say a prayer for you
Burnin' up the floorboards
Burned every place you stood
Every second chance: firewood
Bad luck is a famous name
For what you brought yourself
And I'm too dumb to help

Just this once
I'll say a prayer for you
Though I won't pretend I'm right
If you ask

I'll say a prayer for you
They say the city don't give up
And I believe that's true (don't you?)
Ricochets from boom to bust
Like most of us
Who never cared enough

Just this once
I'll say a prayer for you
Though I won't pretend I'm right
If you ask

I'll say a prayer for you
In the middle of the street
I will stop
I'll say a prayer for you
If that's what you really want
I will stop

I'll say a prayer for you
In the middle of the street
This song is from the album "Watermarks: Selected Songs 1992-2002" and "Nighttown".
