A Mother's Prayer - Lyrics

Gonna rise up mother,
Gonna take back what is mine
Gonna hold it tight in my hand,
Till the end of time
And will you kiss my cheek
As I toe the line
And yes forgive this boyish gall
Running through another wall

I stand, I fall, I want it all

I'm a shooting star
Across the night
I'm a flaming wreck
That's burning bright
And I don't care
How you feel
And I should seal the deal
In a mother's prayer,
It's all, all right
All right

Let the game begin,
Let the chips fall
Where they may
Let the devil grin,
No peace for me,
Let the angels fly away
And can we sit my arms
Around the fray
And please forgive
My soulless hate
But not before it's all too late

I stand, I fall, I want it all
I take, I break, I'm your mistake

I'm a shooting star across the night
I'm a flaming wreck that's burning bright
I don't care how you feel
And I should seal the deal
In a mother's prayer, it's all, all right
All right

C'mon, c'mon,
I'm begging forgiveness
C'mon, c'mon,
I enter the fray
C'mon, c'mon,
Bestow the forgiveness
C'mon, c'mon,
A brand new day
C'mon, c'mon,
A brand new day
C'mon, c'mon,
A brand new day

I'm a shooting star across the night
I'm a flaming wreck
That's burning bright
And I don't care how you feel
And I should seal the deal
In a mother's prayer, it's all, all right
All right, all right

I'm a shooting star across the night
