Wing and a Prayer

For a few years now
She’s been lucky
Head above water
As always seems to be

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer
With an attitude
Of devil may care

One day, then another
Rolls away from her
Leaving behind a
ghost to from learn

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer
With an attitude
Of devil may care

Comes a time though
When she has to fight
To stop with the excuses
She has to more than try

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer
With an attitude
Of devil may care

To hell with it
She thinks to herself
No more letting time
slip by, stuck in hell

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer
With an attitude
Of devil may care

Time to spit the
Devil in the eye
Time to leave
Her past behind

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer
With an attitude
Of devil may care

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer…

She’s been living
On a wing and a prayer…
