War Time Prayers

War Time Prayers: Paul Simon live 2006 LYRICS: Prayers offered in times of peace Are silent conversations Appeals for love, or loveís release In private invocations But all that is changed now Gone like a memory from the day before the fires People hungry for the voice of God Hear lunatics and liars Wartime prayers Wartime prayers In every language spoken For every family scattered and broken Because you cannot walk with the holy if youíre just a halfway decent man I donít pretend that Iím a mastermind with a genius marketing plan Iím trying to tap into some wisdom Even a little drop will do I want to rid my heart of envy And cleanse my soul of rage before Iím through Times are hard, itís a hard time But everybody knows All about hard times, the thing is What are you gonna do? Well, you cry and try to muscle through And try to rearrange your stuff But when the wounds are deep enough And itís all that we can bear We wrap ourselves in prayer Because you cannot walk with the holy if youíre just a halfway decent man I donít pretend that Iím a mastermind with a genius marketing plan Iím trying to tap into some wisdom Even a little drop will do I want to rid my heart of envy And cleanse my soul of rage before Iím through A mother murmurs in twilight sleep And draws her babies closer With hush-a-byes for sleepy eyes And kisses on the shoulder To drive away despair She says a wartime prayer © 2006 Words and Music by Paul Simon Source: www.paulsimon.com
