LYRICS: 'Praying' by Favourland


Favourland: This song is a campaign against
Sexual harassment on women, girls and boys
At work places, in schools, in entertainment industries and in homes ( we pray)


You almost had me fooled (for change)
Told me that I was nothing without you oh
But after everything you've done ( to my life)
I can thank you for how strong I have become


'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is I wish you repent


I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing - changing for good
I hope you find your peace, falling on your knees praying..


(We pray that the people who continue to do these things may one morning get to repent and our girls and boys and all the victims to this fear may breathe free in this God-given space)


I am proud of who I am
No more monsters I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well you were wrong and now the best is yet to come
'Cause I can make it on my own
And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
I've been thrown out, I've been burned O-ohh
And when I'm finished they won't even know your name




Oh sometimes I pray for you at night
Someday maybe you see the light
Whoa oh oh oh some say in life you're gonna get what you give
But some things only God can forgive


(Favourland: In the end, we can be convinced to believe that all men are created equal, both men and women, boys and girls; and no one was created to be predator of the other, or the other person object of exploitation for another person.
We're all children of God, equal in the eyes of God..)
