lyrics

Praying I'm praying I'm praying for you
Prying I'm prying for you
Preying I'm preying I'm preying on you
Praying for you

Down by the rocks I saw the perfect spot
With branches overhead, some flowers nearby
Down by the trees you're dancing for me
Two lovers in the sun in july

Come a little closer, little lover, little friend
What a perfect way for this day to end
Come a little closer, sing yourself a lullaby
Oh what a perfect way to die

Preying I'm preying I'm preying on you
Praying for you

Down by the rocks I saw the perfect spot
With branches overhead, birds and butterflies
Down by the trees you're dancing for me
For the very first time in our lives

Come a little closer, little lover, little friend
What a perfect way for this life to end
Come a little closer, sing yourself a lullaby
Until awoken by your dying cry

Ashes to ashes, all that's good must die
Else we'd endlessly multiply
Dust to dust, enriches the earth
In order for new life to be birthed

Praying, I'm praying I'm praying for you
Praying for you

(solo)

Preying I'm preying I'm preying on you
Praying for you

Down by the rocks it's my special spot
'tween the flowers I'm hard to satisfy
Down by the trees they're dancing for me
I'm waiting for another contestant to try
