Unanswered prayers Lyrics

Unanswered prayers by Garth Brooks  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music
Unanswered prayers Just the other night at a hometown football game
My wife and i ran into my old high school flame
And as I introduced them the past came back to me
And I couldn't help but think of the way things used to be

She was the one that I'd wanted for all times
And each night I'd spend prayin' that God would make her mine
And if he'd only grant me this wish I wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when your talkin to the man of the upstairs
That just because he doen't answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unswered prayers.

She wasn't quite the angel that i remembered in my dreams
And i could tell that time had changed me
In her eyes to it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he's doin' after all.

And as she walked away and i looked at my wife
And then and there I thanked the good Lord
For the gifts in my life.

Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unswered...
Some of God's greatest gifts are unswered prayers.
