Lyrics:



There are times when I've wondered

And times when I've cried

When my prayers they were answered

At times when I've lied

But if you ask me a question

Would I tell you the truth

Now there's something to bet on

You got nothing to lose



When I've sat by the window

And gazed at the rain

With an ache in my heart

But never feeling the pain

And if you would tell me

Just what my life means

Walking a long road

Never reaching the end



God give me the answers to my life

God give me the answers to my dreams

God give me the answers to my prayers

God give me the answers to my being
