If Your Prayers Don't Get to Heaven - Brian Fallon

I'm packing up, I've gotta move
I'ma blow a fifty-foot hole through the dark clouds in our room
I'm making a change I'm gon' starting today
I'ma roll these dice with a song tonight, I'm gonna whip these blues away
And I'm gonna run so far they'll never find me again

But I ain't leavin', I ain't leavin' 'less I'm leavin' here with you
I've been patient while I waited, but I feel it's time to move
You've been crying, yeah, I've seen you
Honey, I've been crying too
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe for you
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe 'til they do

I just wait in the cold, cold gray
But I know like I've been told, yeah, mama said, "Hold onto hope"
She whispers sweet, "There's a light and glory"
But you gotta burn that sound of the voices out that wanna bring you to your knees
And you gotta run so far they'll never find you again

But I ain't leavin', I ain't leavin' 'less I'm leavin' here with you
I've been patient while I waited, but I feel it's time to move
You've been crying, yeah, I've seen you
Honey, I've been crying too
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe for you
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe 'til they do

And when I was a child, a dream came to me
Where every soul hanging low found its piece of dignity
'Til that dream gets to Heaven, you can ride this train for free
'Til that dream gets to Heaven, you can ride this train on me
And we're gonna run so far they'll never find us again

But I ain't leavin', I ain't leavin' 'less I'm leavin' here with you
I've been patient while I waited, but I feel it's time to move
You've been crying, yeah, I've seen you
Honey, I've been crying too
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe for you
If your prayers don't get to Heaven, I'm gon' keep them safe 'til they do
'Til they do
'Til they do
'Til they do
