Unanswered Prayers

by Garth Brooks
Like Garth Brooks says in the liner notes of his Greatest Hits CD, "Happiness isn't getting what you want, it's wanting what you've got."  Sometimes, you don't know where you ought to be until the time is right to be there, I suppose.

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 praying 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 you're talking 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,
In 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 doing after all.

And as she walked away, I looked at my wife,
And then and there I thanked the good Lord,
For the gifts in my life.

Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers,
Remember when you're talking 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.
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers.
