,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, A Little Prayer,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

the stars seemed brighter that night
another soul added to its light
guess by now theres no mystery
so is it everything we were told it would be

i say a little prayer
i say a little prayer for you oo oo o
i say a little prayer for you my friend, until we meet again

i sat with your mother a while
somehow managed to get her to smile
she told o'l stories of you
most of which i'd already knew
your brother and sister were there
oh how he's getting big,she's grown her hair
gathered round your sleepy grave
one year to the day you went away

we said a little prayer
we said a little prayer for you oo oo o
we said a little prayer for you my friend
we said a little prayer
we said a little prayer for you oo oo o
we said a little prayer for you my friend,til we meet again

we all know that war aint pretty but
you dont have to be in it to be a casualty
so if your lookin down the barrell of a gun and
for every father or mother whos lost a daughter or son

we say a little prayer
we say a little prayer for you oo oo o
we say a little prayer for you my friends
we say a little prayer
we say a little prayer for you oo oo o
we say a little prayer for you my friends,til we meet again

remember you called and i was not home
well ive kept your message on my phone
i played it and passed it around
it was the only time your dad laid that flag down

we said a little prayer
we said a little prayer for you
we said a little prayer for you my friend
we said a little prayer
we said a little pryer for you oo oo o
we said a little prayer for you my friend,until we meet again
til we meet again.

Great verses, I think the chorus needs to lose "until we meet again," which is too cliche. Also, the "looking down the barrel of a gun" line. You can find a way to say that that is much more penetrating and emotional. Using a cliche just kills any potential though. But those really are minor fixes, mostly a good piece here dude.

We're only strays.

Great job man, thoroughly enjoyed it, it's hard to find a non emo sad song these days, but this certanly is one. Really has a great feel to it, I could almost picture it as either a solo acoustic piece or something played with a slide guitar, quiet and chilling. Well done indeed.
