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
'Cause 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 
Well 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
'Cause 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
