That's Why I Pray

  • Oh oh oh oh, oh oh, yeah

    Man on the TV's gone insane, everybody's just laughing
    People 'cross the world holding on
    The earth caved in, the ocean came down crashing
    My neighbor lost his house 'cause he can't find a job
    Don't you dare pledge allegiance, don't you dare speak of God
    Speak of God
    Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!

    Now I'm begging for forgiveness
    I wanna make a difference even in the smallest way
    I'm only one person, but I can feel it working
    I believe in better days
    That's why I pray

    Some stupid video posted as a joke, somebody's life gets ruined
    Out of everything we can create
    Where is the cure to keep us safe from losing
    Babies having babies 'cause their parents are always gone
    Somehow we have forgotten how to make a house a home
    How to make a house a home
    Oh! Oh! Yeah! Yeah!

    I'm begging for forgiveness, I wanna make a difference
    Even in the smallest way
    I'm only one person, but I can feel it working
    I believe in better days
    That's why I pray, yeah
    That's why I pray, yeah

    These demons from my past haunt me every night
    And I just can't get through it
    If I could forget them on my own, I'll let go and just move on
    But heaven knows I am only human

    And that's why I pray, yeah yeah
    That's why I pray, I pray, I pray, I pray

    Yes I'm begging for forgiveness (I'm begging for forgiveness)
    I just wanna make a difference (just wanna make a difference)
    I believe (I believe) in better days
    That's why I pray Writer/s: Danelle Leverett, Sarah Buxton, Blair Daly
