Justin Bieber - Pray Lyrics and Video

Pray by Justin Bieber, Music Lyrics and Video

Pray is a single by Canadian pop-R&B singer Justin Bieber, which will be included on his new album “My Worlds Acoustic”.
Pop sensation Justin Bieber started playing on his acoustic guitar when he was a kid, and now he’s going back to his original roots for his next album. The album will go on sale on Black Friday exclusively through Walmart retailers. In addition to featuring new acoustic versions of fan favorites “One Time,” “Never Say Never,” and “Baby,” the new album will also feature the new single “Pray.”

Justin intends the album as a gift to his fans; the arrangements reflect Justin’s early days with merely an acoustic guitar or a lone piano. The album adds additional acoustic instrumentation such as a string quartet, congas, and a cajon drum. The percussion represents inspiration from Justin’s worldly travels, most recently to Africa. Justin plays guitar on the album alongside his musical director and fellow guitarist Dan Kanter.

Bieber performed the song at the 38th American Music Awards were held November 21, 2010.

Here you can listen the full song, this is the official video.

Justin Bieber - Pray Lyrics

Ohh Ohh Ohh .. and I pray
I just cant sleep tonight
Knowing that things ain’t right
Its in the papers, its on the tv, its everywhere that I go
Children are crying
Soldiers are dying
Some people don’t have a home
But I know there’s sunshine behind that rain
I know there’s good times behind 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 my dinner is still on my plate
Ooo I got a vision, to make a difference
And its starting today

Cause I know there’s sunshine behind that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain, hey

Haven’t 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
For the broken-hearted
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 you give em one today.
I just cant sleep tonight
Can someone tell 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 close my eyes and pray
