Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 2]

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying, it's time to lend a hand
To life, the greatest gift of all

/ D - GA D / G A D - / Bm - F#m - / G - Asus4 A / 

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's 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 let's start giving
There's a choice we're making, we're saving our own lives
It's true we make a better day, just you and me

/ G A D - / / Bm - F#m - / G A D - /

Well send them 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
So we all must lend a helping hand


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

/ Bb C D - / / Bm - F#m - / G - Asus4 A /
