The Prayer
Bloc Party Lyrics


Lord, give me grace
And dancing feet
And the power to impress
Lord, give me grace
And dancing feet
Let me outshine them all

Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
Second best
Runner up
Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
To want more than is given to you?
Than is given to you?

Tonight make me unstoppable
I will charm, I will slice,
I will dazzle them with my wit
Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice

I will dazzle I will outshine all

Standing on the packed dance floor
Our bodies thrown in time
Silent on the weekdays
Tonight I claim what's mine

Is it so wrong to crave recognition?
Second best
Runner up
Is it so wrong to want rewarding?
To want more than is given to you?
Than is given to you?

Tonight make me unstoppable
I will charm, I will slice,
I will dazzle them with my wit
Tonight make me unstoppable
And I will charm, I will slice
I will dazzle I will outshine all

A weekend in the city was an extrodinary album. One of the best album of the 00s.

I’m a 40something woman in 2019 and you have no idea how often this song pops into my head as I try to bluff my way through life.

This song man. Something about the hopefulness of the lyrics contrasted with nervous behavior and fleeting escapism of drugs is too true. Going out always treads the same territory. Anticipation, hopefulness, brief happiness, coming down, reality. Weekend in the city does these themes justice. I love you bloc party. x

@Elizabeth Taylor Weird synchronicity. I went out last night and woke up to this comment while hungover.
