Just the other night
at a hometown football game
My wife and I ran into
my old high school flame
And as I introduced them
the past came back to me
And I couldn’t help but think
of the way things used to be
She was the one
that I’d wanted for all times
And each night I’d spend prayin’
that God would make her mine
And if he’d only grant me
this wish I wished
back then
I’d never ask
for anything
again
Sometimes I thank God
for unanswered prayers
Remember when you’re talkin’
to the man upstairs
That just because he doesn’t answer
doesn’t mean he don’t care
Some of God’s greatest gifts
are unanswered prayers
She wasn’t quite the angel
that I remembered in my dreams
And I could tell that time had changed me
In her eyes too
it seemed
We tried to talk about the old days
There wasn’t much we could recall
I guess the Lord knows what he’s doin’
after all
And as she walked away
and I looked at my wife
And then and there
I thanked
the good Lord
For the gifts in my life
Sometimes I thank God
for unanswered prayers
Remember when you’re talkin’
to the man upstairs
That just because he may not answer
doesn’t mean he don’t care
Some of God’s greatest gifts
are unanswered
Some of God’s greatest gifts are all too often unanswered…
Some of God’s greatest gifts are unanswered prayers

[The version I prefer is by Garth Brooks.  Unfortunately, he doesn’t allow most of his work on YouTube, so below is a cover version by Buddy Jewell.  I’m not a fan of Jewell, but this is one of the better covers of this song which I’ve been able to find.  —  KMAB]
