I can't tell if you're listening

Or if you even care

But please God, keep them safe

I know I haven't said my prayers

And I haven't gone to church

But I beg you to keep them safe

I won't promise to pray every night

Because it's not a promise I can keep

And I won't go to church

'Cause I don't like it there

But if you're listening

and you are who everyone says you are

You shouldn't care

That I can't trust someone with my whole self

But you will do what you can to keep them safe
