save it for your prayers lyrics – duffy

heard it on the wire
you’ve been telling me lies
heard in a sparrow’s song
every thing it said was wrong
found it on your shirts
all the lipstick and the dirt
your late nights on the town
like red wine makes me down

i don’t need no explanation
i don’t need the truth
show some remorse for me
and for what you do

save it for your prayer, boy
there’s no need to hurry
save it for your prayer, boy
i’ve learned not to worry, yeah
save it for your prayer
i, i’m not gonna care no
i’m not gonna be there for you

read it in a letter
that you’ve hurt me so
never thought
i’d leave you but
now i guess
i don’t know, oh
i thought
you’d love me and i
i thought we’d last
but now i realize
it was all in the past

save it for your prayer, boy
there’s no need to hurry
save it for your prayer, boy
cos i, i’ve learned
not to worry, no
save it for your prayer
i’m not gonna care no
i’m not gonna be there
yeaaaaahhh
for yooooooou

for you

save it for your prayer
