"Pray" as written by Justin Bieber, Nasri Tony Atweh, Adam David Messinger and Omar Martinez....
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
And I pray

I just can't 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
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 its starting today

'Cause I know there's sunshine behind that rain
I know there's good times behind that pain
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
Pray for the broken-hearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the lungs not breathing
I pray for all the souls in need
I pray
Can you give 'em one today
I just can't 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 pray
I pray
I close my eyes and pray

    My OpinionYea i'm pretty sure no one needs the meaning of this it's kinda right in front of you. And yeah it is sad watching young kids being hurt and homeless and our soliders dying but praying isn't gonna solve everything. I mean, you should have faith but faith shouldn't always be your saviour. Sometimes faith screws you. XD

    General CommentI have to admit that I'm not a Justin Bieber fan, in fact, I will honestly admit that I used to hate him so much, for his 'boring, cheap' music/tunes, but once after I've listened to this song and payed attention to the lyrics and KNOW that he's singing it,..I've actually started to slowly changed my mind about him.
    this song is what makes me finally respect him, as an artist.
    the world and especially our society nowadays seriously needs more INSPIRATIONAL songs/music like this instead of the usual "party-blink2-sex" kind of songs which seems so abundant these days!
