  • I'm young and I'm foolish, I've made bad decisions
    I block out the news, turn my back on religion
    Don't have no degree, I'm somewhat naive
    I've made it this far on my own
    But lately, that shit ain't been gettin' me higher
    I lift up my head and the world is on fire
    There's dread in my heart and fear in my bones
    And I just don't know what to say

    Maybe I'll pray, pray
    Maybe I'll pray
    I have never believed in you, no
    But I'm gonna pray

    You won't find me in church (no) reading the Bible (no)
    I am still here and I'm still your disciple
    I'm down on my knees, I'm beggin' you, please
    I'm broken, alone, and afraid
    I'm not a saint, I'm more of a sinner
    I don't wanna lose, but I fear for the winners
    When I try to explain, the words run away
    That's why I am stood here today

    And I'm gonna pray (Lord), pray (Lord), maybe I'll pray
    Pray for a glimmer of hope
    Maybe I'll pray (Lord), pray (Lord), maybe I'll pray
    I've never believed in you, no, but I'm gonna

    Won't you call me?
    Can we have a one-on-one, please?
    Let's talk about freedom
    Everyone prays in the end
    Everyone prays in the end
    Oh, won't you call me?
    Can we have a one-on-one, please?
    Let's talk about freedom
    Everyone prays in the end
    Everyone prays in the end

    Oh, I'm gonna pray, I'm gonna pray, I'm gonna pray
    Pray for a glimmer of hope
    Maybe I'll pray, pray, maybe I'll pray
    I've never believed in you, no, but I'm gonna pray Writer/s: Angel L. Lopez, James Napier, Jimmy Napes, Jose Angel Velazquez, Larrance Levar Dopson, Samuel Frederick Smith, Timothy Z. Mosley
