Unanswered Prayers

When Marianne and I broke up (almost ten years ago) I was fucking destroyed. I searched for any feeling of happiness that I could find. I slept with guys, partied like a rock star and did all sorts of stupid shit in the name of pain. As the time passed I hoped that the pain would stop. We had broken up and gotten back together so many times that I wasn't convinced it was the final, final time for a year. I felt like I'd never be able to get over her. I used to listen to "Unanswered Prayers" daily.
To this day I think about her. I hope she is well but I'm over her. At least, as much as a person can ever be over their first love.

Unanswered Prayers by Garth Brooks


Just the other night
At a hometown football game
My wife and i ran into
My old highschool flame
And as i introduced them
The past came back to me
And i couldn't help but think of
The way things used to be

She was the one
That i wanted for all times
And each night i spent praying
That god would make her mine
Tnd if he'd only granted me
This wish i'd wished back then
I'd never ask for anything again

Sometimes i thank god
For unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin'
To the man upstairs
That just because he doesn't answer
Doesn't mean he don't care!
'cause some of god's greatest gifts are
unanswered prayers...!

She wasn't quite the angel
That i remembered in my dreams
And i could tell that time had changed me,
And her eyes too, it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn't much we could recall
I guess the lord knows
What he's doing after all

And as she walked away
I looked at my wife
And then and there i thanked the good lord
For the gifts in my life

Sometimes i thank god
For unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin'
To the man upstairs
That just because he may not answer
Doesn't mean he don't care!
'Cause some of god's greatest gifts are
Unanswered Prayers
