Lyrics

[Intro]
Oh oh oh, woah
Oh oh oh, woah
Oh oh oh, woah
And I pray

[Verse 1]
I just can't sleep tonight
Knowing that things ain't right
It's in the papers, it's on the TV
It's everywhere that I go
Children are crying, soldiers are dying
Some people don't have a home

[Pre-Chorus]
But I know there's sunshine behind that rain
I know there's good times beyond that pain
Hey, can you tell me
How I can make a change?

[Chorus]
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray

[Verse 2]
I lose my appetite, knowing kids starve tonight
Am I a sinner 'cause some of my dinner
Is still there on my plate?
Oh I got a vision to make a difference
And it's starting today

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause I know there's sunshine behind that rain
I know there's good times beyond that pain
Heaven, tell me
How I can make a change?

[Chorus]
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and

[Bridge]
I pray for the broken hearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the lungs not breathing
I pray for all the souls that need a breath
Can you give 'em one today?
I just can't sleep tonight
Can someone tell me
How to make a change?

[Chorus]
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray (and I pray)
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and I pray

I pray, I pray (and I pray)
I pray
I close my eyes and pray
