Everyone's Prayer

When my past feels like a book full of things I've done wrong
And this life no longer looks like a place I belong
When each day's a bad dream I'm reliving and there's no way to start again
Let mistakes of the past be forgiven and new life begin

May I be happy
May I be healthy
May I find peace
and freedom from harm

When you're lost and alone and it feels like you've been there for years
and each day's like an endless ordeal seen through eyes full of tears
When all of your sorrows come knocking you don't have to let 'em in
In your heart everything you've been looking for has always been

May you be happy
May you be healthy
May you find peace
and freedom from harm

When humanity feels like a test that we've already failed
and the future's uncertain at best, and at worst looks like hell
When the whole world is laughing and crying, almost too much to bear
Sing a song for the living and dying, it's everyone's prayer

May we be happy
May we be healthy
May we find peace
and freedom from harm

May we be happy
May we be healthy
May we find peace
and freedom from harm
