My muse found me today
She walked out from the April showers
Through the rainbow haze

She heard the prayer of this lonely one
She came back for a touch of happiness and love
She brought me many more words to use
She said you know what to do

Save your prayer-filled words for Christopher
Bring him peace when he wakes from his sleep

He had so much to say
But he sang it anyway

With a feeling in every tune that he played
That would move the soul and touch the heart
Some say it is, love others say its art

Save your prayer-filled words for Jammie
He walks with a style that is all he needs

Sharing words for other people to sing
Without any tears to save
They become the paisley dew on the grass of a new day
He is that one song that sings to the universe
For you and me

Save your prayer-filled words for Prince
Each and every song of compassion and peace 

He had so much to sing
Echoing words, it would bring
Through the drums, through the guitar strings
What is inside will never grow old
Had so much for two lifetimes maybe more
Another song to warm the soul
Even in April when it snows

Save a prayer for the beautiful one
As the soul sings another song
