On my fifth birthday I got so upset
About the brand new bike that I didn't get
I'd prayed my heart out and it didn't seem fair.
I told my grandpa, "I guess God doesn't care"
And he just smiled and said, "My child,"

"Make no mistake
Every prayer you pray gets answered
Even though
Sometimes, the answer is no."

Five years later, out behind the shed
With a stolen pack of grandpa's cigarettes
I struck a match, and held that first one to my lips
And prayed to God, "Please let me get away with this."
And through the smoky air I saw grandpa standing there.

Make no mistake
Every prayer you pray gets answered
Even though
Sometimes, the answer is no

When I think of all the answers in my life, I would have to say
There's no doubt it was always for the best when I didn't get my way.

Grandpa got older, like grandpas do
His health was failing and I guess I knew
It'd be best if he was called on home
But selfishly I prayed that God would keep him hanging on
And when he passed away, in my mind I heard him say.

Make no mistake
Every prayer you pray gets answered
Even though
Sometimes, the answer is no.

Sometimes the answer
Is no.
