We are the world

There comes a time
When we head 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're 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 let's start giving
There is a choice we're making
Were 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
And 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 let's start giving
There is a choice we're making
Were 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
Well, well, well, well let us realize oh! 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 let's start giving
There is a choice we're making
Were saving our own lives
It's true we'll make a better day, just you and me

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

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

Ohh let me hear you!
(Repeat till fade)

    the 10 things we miss about him...
    his music
    his dance
    his voice
    his legacy
    his attitudes
    his kindness
    his sequined gloves
    his cool shoes that make you go leaning like crazy
    his cool clothes
    and best of all,

    HIS MOONWALK!
    R.I.P Michael Jackson, Your Music Will Always Be our Inspiration...Even though you did some weird things, you were still the best.

    This song is so beautiful. Can you believe Michael Jackson helped write this song and he hardly got a part in it?! What's up with that?! Jeez! Anyways:
    RIP MJ, my hero, my savior, my life
