My Lover's Prayer (Album Version)

My Lover's Prayer (Album Version)

Otis Redding

This is my lover's prayer
I hope it'll reach out to you, my love
This is my lover's 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
Tell me, 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 on home and help me solve 'em
[Yeah] I won't be missing you
And honey, my lover's prayer would be all over, oh my

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 'em
[Dear] I won't be missing you, I won't be missing you
And my lover's prayer would be all over
It got to be all over, honey all over
Don't keep my life going round, so many circles
This is my lover's prayer, come on come on
This is my lover's prayer I'm sending it out to you
And I hope it'll reach darlin'
This is my lover's prayer
I hope to get the message over honey
