On a Prayer Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

There's a ship out on the ocean,
At the mercy of the sea.
It's been tossed about, lost and broken
Wondering aimlessly.
And God somehow you know that ship is me.

Cause there's a lighthouse in the harbor
Shining faithfully.
Pouring it's light out across the water
For this sinking soul to see
That someone out there still believes in me.

Chorus:
On a prayer, in a song, I hear your voice, and it keeps me hanging on, on.
Raining down, against the wind,
I'm reaching out till we reach the circle's end, when you come back to me again.

There's a moment that we all come to
In our own time, and our own space where all that we've done we can undo
If our heart's in the right place
(repeat chorus)

And again I see my yesterdays in front of me.
Unfolding like a mystery
You're changing all that is and use to be

(repeat chorus)
When you come back to me,
Again.
