Unanswered Prayers

Just the other night 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 you’re talkin’ to the man upstairs 
That just because he doesn’t answer doesn’t mean he don’t care 
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered 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 too 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 

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers 

Remember when you’re talkin’ to the man upstairs 
That just because he may not answer doesn’t mean he don’t care 
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered 

Some of God’s greatest gifts are all too often unanswered… 
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

funny how i would be listening to this same song from you 4 years later.. how ironic yet comforting at the same time. haha. either way, i still think this is a great song ^^
