Ooh ooh ooooh
Ooh ooh ooooh
Ooh ooh ooooh
And I pray

I just can't sleep tonight
Knowing that things ain't right
It's in the papers
It's on the t.v.
It's everywhere that I go
Children are cryin'
Soldiers are dyin'
Some people don't have a home

But I know there's sunshine beyond that rain
I know there's good times beyond that pain, hey
Can you tell me how I can make a change?

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

I lose my appetite
Knowing kids starve tonight
Am I a sinner, cause half my dinner is still there on my plate?
Ooh, I got a vision to make a difference
And it's starting today

'Cause I know there's sunshine beyond that rain
I know there's good times beyond that pain, hey
Heaven, tell me how I can make a change?

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...

I pray for the brokenhearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the ones not breathing
I pray for all the souls in need I pray
...
Can u give 'em one today?

I just can't sleep tonight...
Can someone tell me how to make a change?

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...

I PRAY
I PRAY
I PRAY...
I close my eyes and pray...

    I don't like justin beiber but I love this song it makes want to cry. When I hear this song it reminds me of my dad. He's in the army and it scares me some time so I pray for him and well pretty much everything I can possibly think of. It scares me sometimes but I know that god will alway be with him and keep him safe.

    Not really a bieber fan but the message of this song is really good.
    Sometimes things that happen to us are somewhat we can't fathom why it happened, sometimes we think that we don't don't deserve it. But God has reasons. And we must not trust Him and strengthen our faith.

    That's sad @Bella Ballerina. If hes a good person which he probibly is then god will help and protect him. God always puts the good people in good hands, he wont get hurt (Hopefully) These things take me forever to write cuz I have dislecsia, so I always get the letters mixed up, witch is very annoying :(
