  • Every day I wake and
    Everything is broken
    Turnin' off my phone just to get out of bed
    Get home every evening
    And history's repeating
    Turning off my phone 'cause it's hurting my chest
    Aye

    And heaven knows I'm not helpless, yeah
    But what can I do?
    I can't see the use in me crying
    If I'm not even tryna make the change I wanna see

    I can't sit and hope, I
    Can't just sit and pray, that
    I can find a love, when
    All I see is pain
    Falling to my knees
    And though I do believe
    I can't just preach, baby, preach
    Whoa, oh
    I can't just preach, baby, preach

    All I hear is voices
    Everybody's talking
    Nothing real is happening, 'cause nothing is new
    Now when all is tragic
    And I just feel sedated
    Why do I feel numb? Is that all I can do? Yeah

    And heaven knows I'm not helpless, yeah
    But I'm only human
    I can't see the use in me crying
    If I'm not even tryna make the change I wanna see

    I can't sit and hope, I
    Can't just sit and pray, that
    I can find a love, when
    All I see is pain
    Falling to my knees
    And though I do believe (though I do believe)
    I can't just preach, baby, preach
    Whoa, oh
    I can't just preach, baby, preach

    And heaven knows I'm not helpless
    But what can I do? Yea
    Can't see the use in me crying
    If I'm not even tryna make the change I wanna see

    I can't sit and hope, I
    Can't just sit and pray, that
    I can find a love, when
    All I see is pain
    I try to do the things, I
    Say that I believe (I do believe)
    I can't just preach, baby, preach
    Whoa, oh
    I can't just preach, baby, preach
    Whoa, oh
    I can't just preach, baby, preach

    Fallin' to my knees
    And though I do believe
    I can't just preach, baby, preach Writer/s: Gregory Kurstin, John Stephens, Sarah Aarons

  • Mykle Ann from Tacoma, WaI really liked your song preach I have lived through racism and police brutality so this song really touched my heart. I am not a gun fan either it is to easy for children to get guns into their hands I believe that guns are for hunting food not shooting people and I to pray for the gun violence to end.
