Testo we are the world - lionel richie

Written and Composed by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie





There comes a time when we need a certain call

When the world must come together as one

There are people dying

Oh
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're all a part of God's great big family

And the truth - you know love is all we need



( CHORUS )

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're making

We're saving our own lives

It's true we'll make a better day

Just you and me



Well
send'em your heart

So they know that someone cares

And their lives will be stronger and free

As God has shown us

By turning stone to bread

And so we all must lend a helping hand



( REPEAT CHORUS )



When you're down and out

There seems no hope at all

But if you just believe

There's no way we can fall

Well
well
well
let's realize

That one change can only come

When we stand together as one



( REPEAT CHORUS AND FADE )
