lyrics

I need everybody up there
I need a lifting of a heavenly prayer
I need

So much of my life has been a waste
Too many things have been done in haste
Everybody up there can tell you why
It's real important to try, try, try

And he up there must have felt tired and confused
Feeling hopeless in spite of everything they used
He must have looked up there just realizing
He too couldn't get anywhere
I need

He too must have felt lost
When things in life didn't seem worth the cost
Hope everybody up there keeps a watch on me
Need everybody up there to set me free

When you're feeling down
You've got to tell him about your troubles in mind
When you're feeling down
You've got to tell him about your troubles in mind
When you're feeling down
Tell him about your troubles all the time
And you know you're going to end up
End up

I need everybody up there
I need a lifting of a
I need a heavenly prayer
And I need
Everybody up there
