J Fish – Prayer For The Past lyrics

J Fish – Prayer For The Past lyrics

(Verse 1)
Hopes & dream & childhood things,
Where did they go, they disappeared,
From the start life hit me hard,
In the back of the school yard,
Kids are screamin’ and yellin’ my name,
Put up your dukes and fight like a man,
I’m just a kid and so are you,
Took a hit right on my cheek,
Turned away like Jesus speaks,
Took another filled with pain,
Hit the ground, got kicked insane,
Ridiculed and called nicknames,

(Chorus)
Lord come inside of me,
Lord help heal me,
I see my past near and far,
The images are haunting me,
Free me from the scars I bear,
They’re locked deep inside of me,
Forgive me for the wrong I’ve done,
Let my past exit me.

(Verse 2)
Took some more while on the bus,
Getting home was such a fuss,
In the door I got greeted with love,
But you know I hurt so much,
Instead I turned and acted out,
Rebelled with hate and learned to shout,
Turned the name calling on my folks,
Surely I caused my mom to cry,
And my father to question why,
Took it out on my brothers too
Took it out on my sister too,
They probably thought what did I do,
When all they did was show me love,
All because of the kids at school,
I made mistakes I can’t erase,
Please forgive me with your grace,

(Chorus)
Lord come inside of me,
Lord help heal me,
I see my past near and far,
The images are haunting me,
Free me from the scars I bear,
They’re locked deep inside of me,
Forgive me for the wrong I’ve done,
Let my past exit me.

(Verse 3)
Now that I’m older what I see is true,
God found you to comfort me,
He planned it out right from the start,
Cause no other family would fit so well,
You brought me home and cherished me,
Even through the anarchy,
You loved me unconditionally,
Thank you Mom & thank you Dad,
If it wasn’t for you who knows where I would be,
I couldn’t image better love,
Thank you God from up above,
You planned it out, it worked so well,
Even my brothers and sister are swell,
Branch it out, it goes further still,
My Grandparents are like the saints above,
Thank you all for showing me love,

(Chorus)
Lord come inside of me,
Lord help heal me,
I see my past near and far,
The images are haunting me,
Free me from the scars I bear,
They’re locked deep inside of me,
Forgive me for the wrong I’ve done,
Let my past exit me.
