Regina Spektor – One Man’s Prayer Lyrics

One Man’s Prayer Lyrics – Regina Spektor

I just want some girl to love me back
Tell me I’m her only and take away the lonely
This deep love in my heart can’t go to waste
‘Cause if I won’t get to meet God and I won’t get to be a god
Then at least, God, let me get loved by a girl
I just want some girl to talk to me
And tell me that I’m different or say that I’m the same
I don’t care what she thinks, just think of me
‘Cause if I won’t get to meet God and I won’t get to be a god
Then at least, God, let me get talked to by a girl

This is what I want, this is what I need
If I ask real nice, would you give her to me?
If I just say, “Please, this is what I need”
But if I can’t have that, well, then at least—

I just want some girl to look my way
And see that I am better than the others that have mattered
In her life, I wanna be her friend
‘Cause if I won’t get to meet God and I won’t get to be a god
Then at least, God, let me get noticed by a girl

In this great world, we’re just planned to live
But you can’t plan love, love’s from above
But if I do have a choice, I’ll just put one foot in front of the other
I’ll say one word after another in my voice, if I have a choice

I just want some girl beneath my feet
To tell me I’m her king and then beg me for a ring
And I want her to be afraid of me
And think that I may leave her and that I will not believe her
When she says that she loves and cares for me
‘Cause if I won’t get to meet God and I won’t get to be a god
Then at least, God, let me get worshiped by a girl

In this great world, we’re just planned to live
But you can’t plan love, love’s from above
This is what I want, this is what I need
If I ask real nice, would you give her to me?
If I just say, “Please, this is what I need”
But if I can’t have that, well, then at least—
This is what I want (This is what I want)
This is what I say (This is what I say)
And this is what I pray
