No Prayer

Chords and lyrics for No Prayer by Bright Eyes

G 
There’s no prayer I could say,  
A 
no advice I could take,  
C 
no pill that would make me feel  
G 
better.
G 
There’s no fountain to seek, no
A 
cup I could drink. I kn
C 
ow of nothing that ever grew you
G 
nger.
 
But the  
D 
universe it m
C 
ust go on for
G 
ever, just like two  
D 
mirrors that are f
C 
acing each o
G 
ther.
 
It’s rea
D 
lity upon ill
C 
usion over and  
G 
over until you ca
D 
n’t tell the diff
C 
erence,
 
they both just blend to
G 
gether.
 
And I just put e
D 
ach day in a box
C 
on a calendar, winter to  
G 
summer.
 
And I’ll go wa
D 
lking in that same c
C 
ircle for as long as I can  
G 
remember.
 
I just keep ho
D 
ping that someone wo
C 
uld make me a better o
G 
ffer.
 
Cause I know the  
Bm 
end that we see from our  
A 
balcony 
 
 
D 
is 
 
 
C 
barely the b
G 
eginning.
 
G 
So I’m up on the fence and I’m  
A 
still not convinced. Can
C 
‘t decide which side looks green
G 
er.
G 
So I just stay where I am, rema
A 
in indifferent. Let what
C 
happens, happen it’s easier.
G 
 
I’ll go ahead and d
D 
rown myself in the  
C 
fluids of ano
G 
ther.
 
Yeah my woman t
D 
o me was as p
C 
ure and essen
G 
tial as water.
 
And  
D 
so she looked
C 
like me for  
G 
awhile but she does no longer
 
cause she
D 
took the sha
C 
pe of whateve
G 
r it was that held her.
 
She killed the fe
D 
ar in my hear
C 
t but our lov
G 
e also got murdered.
 
She said my chil
D 
d you can no  
C 
longer sing o
G 
f that fever
 
cause it’s selfish and you
D 
are not self
C 
ish. You must
G 
get 
 
stronger.
 
So I know when y
Bm 
our lover leaves I guess  
A 
all you can
D 
be
C 
is
G 
forgiving.
