My Lover's Prayer
Otis Redding Lyrics


This is my lover's prayer
I hope it'll reach out to you, my love
This is my lover's prayer
And I hope you can understand it, my love

My life is such a weary thing
But it might be your own presence bringing rain
You keep wanting, waiting and wishing
When I know deep down that I'm not to blame
What you gonna do tonight
When you need some loving arms to hold you tight?
Tell me, what you gonna do tonight
When you need my happy voice to tell you good night?

Honey, but you can't let that be no problem
You've got to come on home and help me solve 'em
Yeah, I won't be missing you
And honey, my lover's prayer would be all over, oh my

What can the matter be now?
It can't be too serious we can't talk it over
Living in this misery
Darling, you can't make my life all over

Honey but don't you let that be no problem
Just come on home and help me solve 'em
Dear, I won't be missing you, I won't be missing you
And my lover's prayer would be all over
It got to be all over, honey all over
Don't keep my life going round, so many circles
This is my lover's prayer, come on come on home, og
This is my lover's prayer I'm sending it out to you
And I hope it'll reach you, darlin'
This is my lover's prayer
I hope to get the message over, honey

This is one of the best songs ever written. Hands down. Otis was king.

@Lisa Ian better late than never. He did more than dock on the bay. The man had real soul

I have listened to Otis for years.
My late husband loved Sopranos, he died in 2010, just a month after our son's 1st birthday. This song, I have played it plenty over the years, I have cried, but I will keep playing it ❤️

Mr. Mortadella

God bless ❤
