'Unanswered Prayers' lyrics

by Garth Brooks

Just the other night 
At 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

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered Prayers
Remember when your talkin' to the man Upstairs
That just because he may not 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
In her eyes to 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 thanked the good Lord
For the gifts in my life.

Some of God's greatest gifts 
Are all too often unanswered
Some of God's greatest gifts 
Are unanswered prayers.
