My Lover's Prayer

My Lover's Prayer

Otis Redding

This is my lovers prayer
I hope it'll reach out to you, my love
This is my lovers prayer
And I hope you can understand it, my love

My life is such a weary thing
But it might be old pressure bringing rain (?)
You keep wanting, waiting and wishing
When I know deep down that I'm not to blame

What you gonna do tonight
When you need some loving arms to hold you tight
What you gonna do tonight
When you need my heavy voice to tell you good night

Honey but you can't let that be no problem
You've got to come home and help me solve it
[Yeah] I won't be missing you
And honey, my lovers prayer would be all over

What can the matter be [now]?
It can't be to serious we can't talk it over
Living in this misery, darling
You can't make my life all over

Honey but don't you let that be no problem
Just come on home and help me solve it
[Dear] I won't be missing you
And my lovers prayer would be all over
It got to be all over
Honey all over
Don't keep my life going round so many circles

I won't be missing you
I won't be missing you
And my lovers prayer won't be all over

This is my lovers prayer
Come on y'all
This is my lovers prayer
And I hope it reaches out to you
This is my lovers prayer
I hope it gets to you
