Songs For Our Times #32

Emeli Sandé – Prayed Up Lyrics | Genius Lyrics

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 32nd song, I chose Prayed Up by Emeli Sande. I chose this song for a song of hope, and a reminder that we are all one. We are here to help each other.

lyrics:

In times like these we gotta love and try and trust each other
I am your sister and you’re always gonna be my brother
In times like these we gotta make sure hate don’t start to poison
Before you know it streams can quickly turn into an ocean
To all the doctors, teachers, nurses and to all keys workers
You are our inspiration
Have all our admiration
See all the rainbows in the windows painted by the children
Thank you thank you

Everybody stay safe
Stay prayed up
It’s time to show the world
What you’re really made of
Stay safe
Stay prayed up
Things are gonna get much brighter
Come on I know you’re a fighter

In times like these we gotta hold on tighter to our families
And separate the who we wanna be from who we have been
Dig little deeper give your soul much needed conversation
I made a pinky promise with myself to make some changes
I’m praying for all people locked in houses they’re not safe in
In times like these inequalities becoming oh so blatant
Some people good some people numb
Some people still ain’t eating
Please God we need some healing

Everybody stay safe
Stay prayed up
It’s time to show the world
What you’re really made of
So stay safe, stay prayed up
Things are gonna get much brighter
Come on I know you’re a fighter
Stay safe, stay prayed up
Things are gonna get much brighter
I know you’re a fighter

Thank you for the life I’m living
Thank you for the strength you’re giving
Even in these times so different
Your love remains the same, no different
When I need my spirit lifted
I can count on your assistance
Grant us peace and grant us patience
Let us see souls before races (Let us see souls before races)
Give us hope to stay united (Give us hope to stay united)
Come to far to be divided (Come to far to be divided)
Thank you for all you’re providing
(I thank you for all you’re providing)
Thank you, thank you

Everybody stay safe (Stay safe)
Stay prayed up (Stay prayed up)
It’s time to show the world
What you’re really made of
Stay safe (Stay safe)
Stay prayed up (Stay prayed up)
Things are gonna get much brighter
I know you’re a fighter
