    Lyrics

    When you burn your kingdom
    Through the ashes I will come
    I know it makes no difference
    But I can't leave ya to your fun
    Usin' up your torch song gifts
    Why do you rush the end along?
    Actin' like you'll soon forget
    The end is comin' on its own

    Just this once
    I'll say a prayer for you
    Though I won't pretend to help
    Just this once

    I'll say a prayer for you
    Burnin' up the floorboards
    Burned every place you stood
    Every second chance: firewood
    Bad luck is a famous name
    For what you brought yourself
    And I'm too dumb to help

    Just this once
    I'll say a prayer for you
    Though I won't pretend I'm right
    If you ask

    I'll say a prayer for you
    They say the city don't give up
    And I believe that's true (don't you?)
    Ricochets from boom to bust
    Like most of us
    Who never cared enough

    Just this once
    I'll say a prayer for you
    Though I won't pretend I'm right
    If you ask

    I'll say a prayer for you
    In the middle of the street
    I will stop
    I'll say a prayer for you
    If that's what you really want
    I will stop

    I'll say a prayer for you
    In the middle of the street
