John Legend – Preach lyrics
[Verse 1]
Everyday I wake and everything is broken
Turning 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
Hey-hey

[Pre-Chorus]
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

[Chorus]
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'm falling to my knees
And though I do believe
I can't just preach, baby, preach
Wo-oah-oah-oah-oah, oh-oh-oh
I can't just preach, baby, preach

[Verse 2]
All I hear is voices, everybody's talkin'
Nothing real is happenin' 'cause nothing is new
Now in all this tragic, and I just feel sedated
Why do I feel numb? Is that all I can do? Yeah

[Pre-Chorus]
And Heaven knows I'm not helpless, yeah (Uh)
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

[Chorus]
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'm falling to my knees
And though I do believe (Though I do believe)
I can't just preach, baby, preach
Wo-oah-oah-oah-oah, oh-oh-oh
I can't just preach, baby, preach

[Pre-Chorus]
And Heaven knows I'm not helpless
But what can I do? Yeah
I can't see the use of me crying
If I'm not even tryna make the change I wanna see

[Chorus]
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 that save it, I believe (I do believe)
I can't just preach, baby, preach
Wo-oah-oah-oah-oah, oh-oh-oh
I can't just preach, baby, preach
Wo-oah-oah-oah-oah, oh-oh-oh
I can't just preach, baby, preach

[Outro]
I'm falling to my knees
And though I do believe
I can't just preach, baby, preach
