We Are The World

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, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of God's great big family
and the truth, you know
   love is all we need

We are the world, we are the children
we are the ones who make a brighter day
so lets start giving
There's a choice we're making
   we're 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

We are the world, we are the children
   we are the ones who make a brighter day
so lets start giving
There's a choice we're making
we're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
   just you and me

When you're 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

We are the world, we are the children
   we are the ones who make a brighter day
so lets start giving
There's a choice we're making
we're saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day
just you and me
