Lyrics

Rachel:
Life is a mystery
Everyone must stand alone
I hear you call my name
And it feels like home

Finn and Rachel and New Directions:
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

Finn:
I hear your voice
It's like an angel sighing

Kurt:
I have no choice, I hear your voice
Feels like flying

Mercedes:
I close my eyes
Oh God, I think I'm falling
Out of the sky, I close my eyes
Heaven help me

Finn and Rachel and New Directions:
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

Finn:
I'm like a child
You whisper softly to me

Rachel:
You're in control, just like a child
Now I'm dancing

Jesse:
It's like a dream
No end and no beginning
You're here with me, it's like a dream

Mercedes:
Let the choir sing
Ooh

Finn and Rachel with New Directions and The Choir:
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

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
