I Don't Wanna Pray
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Lyrics


I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made bad
I love my god, god made me

But I don't wanna pray to my maker
I just wanna be what I see
Not just who I am, but the pink in golden land
And that wide wild sky over me
Help me to the sun, hey I'm looking everywhere
See I'm looking to become not the prayer, but the prayer.
And now I don't wanna pray, no
I say I don't wanna pray, no
And I, I don't wanna pray
I don't wanna pray

I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made bad
I love my god, god made

I don't wanna pray to my maker
I just wanna be feelin' free
Not like in a book, or the leaves of trees that shook
From a word that means only not a thing
Pardon god and mom, what I'm sayin' isn't fair
See I'm looking to become, not the prayer but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray
I say I don't wanna pray
I don't wanna pray
Who don't wanna pray

Not much good to talk, better to walk it
Not much good to take, better to give
We are gone forgiven and forgotten of our sins
I promise you my friend all that dies will live again
Pardon god and mom, what I'm sayin' isn't fare
See I'm looking to become, not the prayer but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray
No, they say I don't wanna pray
I don't wanna pray
Who don't wanna pray

I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made love
I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made hate
I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made good
I love my god, god made bad
I love my god, god made me

I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made good
I love my God, God made good
I love my God, God made bad
I love my God, God made me

But I don't want to pray to my maker (No!)
I just want to be what I see
Not just who I am, but the pink and darling land
With that wide, wild sky over me
Help me to the sun, hey I'm lookin' everywhere,
Hey I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And now I don't wanna pray (No!)
I say I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

But still, I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made good
I love my God, God made, god made, god made...

But I don't want to pray to my maker (No!)
I just want to be, feelin' free
Not like in a book, or the leaves on trees that shook
Or the words that mean only not a thing

Say ah, pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
See I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And now I don't wanna pray (No!)
I say I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

And it's alright to talk 'long as you walk it (Ohh!)
It's alright take 'long as you give
Someday we'll be forgiven and forgotten of our sins
Either way I know for sure
That we all will live again

Say ah, pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
See I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And now I don't wanna pray (No!)
I said I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

Who got a verse?
Hey Sea bass you got one?

I don't wanna pray to my maker (No!)
Oh let me be of service, won't you please
Not like greasy crooks or them thieves with smilin' looks
I just wanna be a-helping if you need

Now pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
See I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And now I don't wanna pray (No!)
I said I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

Alright Seth, you said you had a verse last night

Now God ain't on a cloud way high above me (Woah!)
God is in the earth and in the land
And I'm not sure if I would
But I think that God is good when I'm playin' with this ever-lovin' band

Say ah, pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
Hey I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And I, I don't wanna pray (No!)
I said I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

Alright now Mark, speak up now. You must have one.

Well I've seen her in the ocean, (oh!)
And I felt her in the breeze
But I don't feel the need to get down on my knees
And pray for everything that you believe

Ah, pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
Hey I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And I, I don't wanna pray (No!)
I say I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

Christian, you wanna get in here?

When I was a boy, my daddy made me (Go!)
Read a story to him every night
Said to me my son,
Guess you're gonna have to run
And it turned that he was pretty right

Say ah, pardon god and mom
If what I'm sayin' isn't fair
Hey I'm lookin' to become not the pray-er but the prayer
And now, I don't wanna pray (No!)
I say I don't wanna pray (No!)
Hey ah, I don't wanna pray
Oh, who don't wanna pray?

Alright,
But still,

I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made love
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made hate
I love my God, God made good
I love my God, God made good
I love my God, God made bad
I love my God, God made me



I made these lyrics by ear, so if I screwed any of them up, please tell me and I'll try my best to fix 'em!

Thanks @awright for the help!!

what did you feel?
I felt a bliss of warmth
an ever-loving butterly wing beat
you guys are a prayer
your existence an allegory of love
if I were free
I would watch the video every couple of days
watch and feel
I would close my eyes
embrace your vibe
I would take a walk
sing and sparkle
yes if this were free
because
lights blinding
no way dividing
whats yours or mine
when everythings shining
I saw that you and I forever have been free
truth.
love.

"what do you want your band to be composed of? Singers and instruments?"
"yes, I would like that."
"Ok, hows two singers, a guitarist and a drummer?"
"more"
"ok...multiple singers, a cellist, a guitarist, and a drummer?"
"More"
"hmm..hows an accordion-keyboard player, violinist, banjo player, trumpeter, multiple singers, a cellist, a guitarist, a drummer, tambourine player, and a guy who keeps beat on a hollowed box?"
"perfect"

This is how the group was formed

I m not sure about "Crash" lyrics, UbiSergeiil wrote ;

I don't wanna pray to my maker
Whenever it'll be service or to please
Not like greasy crook with all him beef, and smile, and look
I just want to be of help if you need

but it sounds more like ;

I don't wanna pray to my maker
Whenever it'll be service won't you please
Not like greasy crook so them people smile and look
I just wanna be a help and if you need

Somebody knows????

Best version for sure. The studio version is too quick I think. This one is slowed down just right.
