Unanswered Prayers

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night
Thought of things that meant so much
for me and my wife -
Children, school and house, livelihood and life
I can’t stop thanking God for these
Unanswered prayers.

When I was young my dreams were
diff’rent from what I have now.
I took a lot for granted, never cared so much;
Dreaming far away, I could never stay
But now I’m thankful, God,
For these unanswered prayers.

[You/they] are the answer to my unanswered prayers.
I swear to God [you/they] are my unanswered prayers;
I may not have known
Coz I was so young and alone
But now I realize you are the answer
To my very prayers.

Funny but it seems like God had made plans all along;
Took a lot of twists and turns, had to let go of my own;
Funny it may seem, you know, how lucky have I been
Now I have you all beside me - my unanswered prayers.

God, I can’t thank enough, you're Lord of my life.
Coz I owe you so much, I fall down on my knees;
I couldn’t bear the thought of it
had you answered all my dreams -
I wouldn’t have my wife and kids -
Your very answer to my unanswered prayers.


(Repeat Refrain except last 2 lines)

But now I realize you are the answer
to my very prayers.
