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 dont 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.
