Prayer à la I Try – Macy Gray

Games, changes and fears
when will they go from here

When will they stop?

Your love commits me[1] here
and we should be together LORD

…But we’re not

I play it off but I’m dreamin of you
I’ll keep my cool but for you I’m pining[2]

When I try to say goodbye let me choke
when I try to walk away may I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear
my world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free

But what use is my freedom if
I’m not a prisoner of your love

I may seem alright and smile when I leave
But my smiles are just a front…just a front

I play it off but I’m dreamin of you
I’ll keep my cool but for you I’m pining

When I try to say goodbye let me choke
When I try to walk away may I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
LORD I need your touch
Your Spirit, love, kisses and such

With all my might I try
But this I can’t deny…deny…

I play it off but I’m dreamin of you
I’ll keep my cool but for you I’m pining

When I try to say goodbye let me choke
When I try to walk away may I stumble

Though I try to hide it it’s clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
