Lyrics
Things I prayed for
When I was young
That my father would love me
Like his only son
That my mother would
Be patient with me
And my sister would not leave
And if my grandpa could see me
Beyond his grave
That he'd think his little man
Was so brave
That my hair would not
Stick up in weird places
And I'd be someone someday

Years go by so easily
That sometimes I forget
Years go by and make me see
That there's no time for my regrets
No time for my regrets

Things I prayed for
In my teens
That God would forgive
All my evil deeds
That my father and my sister
Would come home
And that Mom could meet our needs
And if my grandpa could see me
Beyond his grave
That he'd say a prayer
For his family's sake
That my hair would
Stick up in weird places
And I'd be someone someday

Things I pray for
Now in my twenties
That God would still love me
And that Dad would like
His new family
That I could hug my sister
That my mom could rest
That my wife would still melt
Every time we kiss
And if my grandpa has seen me
Beyond his grave
So cold and silent
He has remained
That my hair would not
Fall out in weird places
And I'd be someone someday

These are the things I prayed
That I'd be someone someday
