Lyrics to song Preacher by Onerepublic

Verse 1:
When I was a kid
I used to buy and sell gravity
I knew how to fly
And I would teach you for a fee
Broke every window
In my hotel heart
When I was only 5 years old the 12 years scarred
But I'd hear the same voice
Echo in my mind
Said, "Son you got an angel that chase the devil out the mind."

Chorus 1:
When I was a kid
My grandfather was a preacher
He'd talk about God
Yeah he was something like a teacher
He said, "God only helps those
Who learn to help themselves."
He was a million miles from a million dollars
But you could never spend his wealth

Verse 2:
I took a little faith
And put it in a parking lot
I drove to a strange town
Full of "have" and "have notes"
And as I walked through that storybook life
I've been looking for an angel who'd chase the devil out the mind

Chorus 2:
When I was a kid
My grandfather was a preacher
He'd talk about love
Yeah he was something like a teacher
He said, "God only helps those
Who learn to help themselves."
He was a million miles from a million dollars
But you could never spend his wealth

Bridge:
Wave
Put your hands up and hands down
Wave
Put your hands up and hands down
Wave
Put your hands up and hands down

Chorus 3:
When I was a kid
My grandfather was a preacher
He'd talk about life
Yeah he was something like a teacher
He said, "God only helps those
Who learn to help themselves."
He was a million miles from a million dollars
But you could never spend his wealth

Outro:
He was a million miles from a million dollars
But you could never spend his wealth.
