Unanswered Prayers Lyrics

Just the other night a hometown football game
my wife and i ran into my old high school flame
and as i introduced them the past came back to me
and i couldn't help but think of the way things used to be
She was the one that i'd wanted for all times
and each night i'd spend prayin' that god would make her mine
and if he'd only grant me this wish i wished back then
i'd never ask for anything again
Chorus:
sometimes i thank god for unanswered prayers
remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
that just because he doesn't answer doesn't mean he don't care
some of god's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers
She wasn't quite the angel that i remembered in my dreams
and i could tell that time had changed me
inn her eyes too it seemed
we tried to talk about the old days
there wasn't much we could recall
i guess the lord knows what he's doin' after all
And as she walked away and i looked at my wife
and then and there i thankedd the good lord
for the gifts in my life
Chorus
Some of god's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
some of god's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

He's thanking god for not giving him that high school crush forever & always, because then, he met the one...and that was his prayer being answered.... No prayer is unanswered, just not always ur wish
