Plus One — A Prayer For Every Year lyrics

Do you remember me?
Long ago on bended knee
I prayed to you
With childhood fantasy
Well I'm all grown up now
Can you still help somehow
I'm not a child
But my heart still can dream
Please hear my prayer tonight
And help me do what's right
Not for myself
But for a world in need

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
And every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my prayer for every year

May kindness rule our lives
Not just the strong survive
Sweet tears for all
Thousand years gone by
This is the world I pray
We will share someday
Let me begin by reaching out my hand (my hand)

No more lives torn apart
That wars would never start
And time would heal all hearts
Every man would have a friend
And right would always win
And love would never end
This is my prayer for every year

What is this illusion called
The innocence of youth
Maybe only in their
Blind belief will we ever find the truth
No more lives torn apart (torn apart)
That wars would never start (never start)
And time would heal all hearts (hearts)
And every man would have a friend (have a friend)
And right would always win (always win)
And love would never end
This is my prayer for every year
This is the prayer I hope you hear
This is my prayer for every year
