[Intro] : Am  Em  F  Dm

[Verse 1] : 
            Am                     Em
Every day I wake and everything is broken
               F                         Dm
Turnin' off my phone just to get out of bed
               Am                      Em
Get home every evenin' and history's repeatin'
               F                           Dm
Turning off my phone cuz it's hurting my chest

[Pre Chorus 1] : 
        F                            C
Yeah ay, and heaven knows I'm not helpless
    Dm                   C
Yeah, but what can I do?
F                             C
  I can't see the use in me crying
                 Dm
If I'm not even trying to make the change I wanna see

[Chorus 1] : 
                Am                         G
I can't sit and hope, I can't just sit and pray that
             Dm                     F
I can find a love when all I see is pain
              Am                      G
Falling to my knees and though I do believe
             F             C
I can't just preach, baby, preach

              Am                     G
Woah oh oh oh oh, oh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

I can't just preach, baby, preach

[Verse 2] : 
      C       Am                  Em
All I hear is voices, everybody's talking
                F                           Dm
Nothing real is happening cause nothing is new
                Am                       Em
Now when all is tragic and I just feel sedated
              F                        Dm
Why do I feel numb, is that all I can do? 

[Pre Chorus 2] : 
     F                            C
Yeah, and heaven knows I'm not helpless
    Dm                   C
Yeah, but I'm only human
F                             C
  I can't see the use in me crying
                 Dm
If I'm not even trying to make the change I wanna see

[Chorus 2] : 
                Am                         G

  And heaven knows I'm not helpless
Dm                  Em    C
   But what can I do, yeah
F                             C
  I can't see the use in me crying
                 Dm
If I'm not even trying to make the change I wanna see

[Chorus 3] :

                Am                    G
I try to do the things I say that I believe (I do believe)
             F             C
I can't just preach, baby, preach

              Am                     G
Woah oh oh oh oh, oh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
             Dm            F
I can't just preach, baby, preach
              Am                     G
Woah oh oh oh oh, oh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
             F             C
I can't just preach, baby, preach

[Outro] : 
              Am                      G
Falling to my knees and though I do believe

I can't just preach, baby, preach
