Say a prayer for me now
Say a prayer for me now

A teenage model all of 16
Had great dreams of being a beauty queen.
Well now she's calling her sister,
It's the appearance job but she just wouldn't listen.
Dropped out of school,
15 years old and she acted the fool
She fought love with a dream
When her friends call to club she just holds her and screams.
But it's too late,
Love wasn't great but she just couldn't wait to be mature..
.. And explore.
The father of the child clean walked out the door
Didn't want to know
Came home one day packed his things and had to go
Makes you sit and wonder how
Just say a prayer for me now

Don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
No don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)

That old man who you see on the streets
The little bottle to his lips every week
He didn't always be that way
But look how his luck don't change
He used to be someone
Now everyone thinks he's the bum and the kids just run
Plus they like to tease
They thrash knees and say his clothes has fleas
People all over are dying
Politicians keep on lying
They'd rather spend the money on war
Yet we can't feed the poor
A rich man lives on a yacht
A poor man lives in a doorway of a shop
But don't ask me how
Just say a prayer for me now

Don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
No don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
Don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
No don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)

I see things through adult eyes
But when I was young, I wasn't quite so wise
A lot of things would pass me by
But now when I see things, things I ask
Why?
Is it worth its weight?
Why are kids on my street scared to go out and play?
Why are old folks shy
Across the street whenever I walk by?
It's the wheeling but dealing but stealing
and the temptations so appealing
But I know that a chance will come
With the rising of the sun

Don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
No don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
Don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
No don't say a prayer for me now (Say a prayer)
Save it 'till the morning after (For me now)
