The Cotswold Voices

Like A Prayer

Oohs

(Solo) Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home

 

(All + clap) When you call my name it's like a little prayer

I'm down on my knees, I wanna take you there

In the midnight hour I can feel your power

Just like a prayer you know I'll take you there (soft)

 

Oohs

(Group) I hear your voice, it's like an angel sighing

I have no choice, I hear your voice

Feels like flying

I close my eyes, Oh God I think I'm falling

Out of the sky, I close my eyes

(All) Heaven help me

 

(All + clap) Chorus

 

Oohs

(Group) Like a child you whisper softly to me

You're in control just like a child

Now I'm dancing

It's like a dream, no end and no beginning

You're here with me, it's like a dream

(All) Let the choir sing

 

(All + clap) Chorus x2

 

T, A, SS: Ah-ah, ah-ah

S & B: Life is a mystery, everyone must stand alone

I hear you call my name

And it feels like home

Just like a prayer, your voice can take me there

Just like a muse to me, you are a mystery

Just like a dream, you are not what you seem

Just like a prayer, no choice, your voice can take me there

 

(All + clap  x4) Just like a prayer, I'll take you there

It's like a dream to me

 

Crescendo from pp to ff:

(S & B) Just like a prayer, (T, A, SS: Just like) your voice can take me there (a prayer)

Just like a muse to me, (Your voice can take me there) you are a mystery

Just like a dream, (Just like a prayer) you are not what you seem

Just like a prayer, no choice, your voice can take me there

 

(Repeat once and rit to end)
