To be a sinner, I'd have to believe in the saints.
I don't believe in your God or your devil,
But you can pray for me anyway.
If it makes you feel better,
That's what I believe in.
Can't say I'm a sinner if I don't believe in
your version for forever.
No one's every prayed for me,
Prayed for something other than my "sins."
No one's ever asked either, you see.
So I'm thrown,
But, yes, you may.
Your beliefs are not my own,
But I believe in positive energy anyway.
To be a sinner, I'd have to believe in your God.
So why do you want to pray?
I know in your eyes that my ways are wrong.
Yes, you may pray for me.
I'll talk to the earth; you talk to the sky.
Maybe the prayers are what I need.
I know you know that I don't believe.
Yet, I thank you…
I thank you for saying a prayer for me.
