We are the world

Written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie in 1985

” There comes a time when we heed a certain call
  When the world MUST come together as one
   There are people dying
   And it’s time to lend a hand to life
   The greatest gift of all

   We can’t go on pretending day by day
   That someone, somewhere will soon make a change
    We are all a part of God’s great big family
    And the truth, you know,


    We are the world, we are the children
     We are the ones who make a BRIGHTER DAY
     So let’s start giving
     There’s a choice we are making
      We are saving our own lives
       It’s true we’ll make a better day
        Just you and me
        Send them your heart so they’ll know that someone cares
         And their lives will be stronger and free
         As God has shown us by turning stones to bread
         So we all must lend a helping hand

          REPEAT CHORUS:

           When you are down and out, there seems no hope at all
           But if you just believe there’s no way we can fall
           Let us realize that a change can only come
           When we stand together as one

           REPEAT CHORUS”
