Mary J. Blige: Empty Prayers/My Life II

“I tried my best to keep you here But it’s hard to hold a shadow You said goodbye but I couldn’t hear Too busy praying for a miracle

You left me on my knees You just walked out the door You didn’t even have the decency to intervene While I was begging God for you to love me

I prayed about us every night, mhmm… Boy I know you had to hear me You could have stopped me then and told the truth But instead, you put a pillow over your head

Oh, and you left me on my knees You just walked out the door, babe You didn’t even have the decency to intervene While I was begging God for you to love me

You should have told me it was useless That I was praying empty prayers, yeah But you hopped in your car, pulled out your keys While you were leaving, I was begging God for you to love me

And I know that He has something better to do Than to sit and listen to a broken hearted fool Could have been saving the world from a tragedy But instead He was listening to me

I was asking, beggin’ for a sign To bring comfort to this lonely heart of mine
But apparently you’re not what I need I guess you walking out was Him answering

You left me on my knees You just walked out the door You didn’t even have the decency to intervene While I was begging God for you to love me

I try my best to keep you here But it’s hard to hold a shadow…”
