SOMETIMES A PRAYER JUST AIN'T ENOUGH

Verse 1

We know what's been before us,

but not what lies ahead -

yet none of us expected

a future full of dread.

Life's meant to get brighter,

not darker than before,

so now I am reviewing

my life a little more.

Chorus

Sometimes a prayer just ain't enough.

Sometimes we need a bit of luck.

Who knows how this is going to end.

I hope that we, together friend - get through.

Verse 2

This wasn't in my 5 year plan,

but plans have washed away.

The most important thing right now

is getting through each day.

We're all in this together.

Don't think you're on your own.

Although we are in lockdown,

there's Facebook or the phone.

Chorus

Sometimes a prayer just ain't enough.

Sometimes we need a bit of luck.

Who knows how this is going to end.

I hope that we, together friend - get through.

Bridge

Stay in, wash hands,

eat well, ease stress.

Applaud the

brilliant NHS.

Stay in, wash hands,

eat well, ease stress.

Applaud the

brilliant NHS.

Chorus

Sometimes a prayer just ain't enough.

Sometimes we need a bit of luck.

Who knows how this is going to end.

I hope that we, together friend - get through.
