Within Temptation – Don’t Pray For Me

Don’t Pray For Me

[Intro]
(Spoken) Would all who wish to die, please raise their hands?

[Verse 1]
I'm not lost in the dark
I'm not blind to what I see
I know the river is wide and the water is deep
I feel the cold, my heart skips a beat
I don't need your absolution, so don't hold that sword over me
For my confessions I don't need a church
I don't need salt to know where it hurts

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't pray for me, no...
(Spoken) Would all who wish to die, please raise their hands?

[Chorus]
I cannot breathe for you
You're trying over and over, denying what I feel
And every time you bow down your head
To pray, don't pray for me, don't pray for me!

[Verse 2]
Oh I needed a revolution
I never had a war in mind
And now the river runs dry and the fall is deep
The truth is dark and makes us bleed
In hell is where I stand, it's where I find my inner strength
For my confessions I don't need a church
I don't need salt to know where it hurts

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't pray for me, no...

[Chorus]
I cannot breathe for you
You're trying over and over, denying what I feel
And every time you bow down your head
To pray, don't pray for me, don't pray for me!

[Interlude]
(Spoken) I am going to let you pray for me

[Chorus]
I cannot breathe for you
You're trying over and over, denying what I feel
And every time you bow down your head
To pray, don't pray for me, don't pray for me!
