Don't know much about practicing what I preach
Don't know how to be envious without jealousy
Don't know how to hold my temper, when I have to get in the last word
Don't know how to speak softly and still be heard
But before I lose everything and everyone who loves me

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name

Don't know much about love ‘cause I get the same crap from every guy
Don't know how to see the grass being greener on my side
Don't know much about wisdom without being jaded
Don't know how to take criticism without feeling hated
But before I lose everything and everyone who loves me

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name

Whoa man, I'm everything I said I wouldn't be
Standing here with nothing, will you help me?

Don't know how to tell a joke without putting my foot in my mouth
Don't know how to be intimate if I don't have a crowd
Don't know how to be hopeful, what if they let me down?
I don't know how to keep myself from hurting everyone

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name

God if you’re listening would you have a message sent
‘Cause I need to be a better lover, brother, and a friend
God if you’re listening would you come up with some change
‘Cause I wake up every morning with a penny to my name
