[african voices]
Stephen: let's not forget this place
Let's not neglect our race
Let unity become
Life on earth be one

Stephen: so let me take your hand
We are but grains of sand
Born throught the winds of time
Given a special sign

Ronan: so let's take a stand
And look around us now, people
So let's take a stand
And look around us now, people...

All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: to a different beat
All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: (to a different beat)

Stephen: humanity's lost face
Let's understand it's grace
Each day one at a time
Each life including mine

Ronan: so let's take a stand
And look around us now,
People oh, people oh people!

All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: to a different beat
All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: (to a different beat)

Ronan: I've seen the rain fall in africa
I've touched to snow of alaska
All: (alaska-a-a-a)
Keith: (oh tell me now...)
Ronan: I've felt the mists of niagara
All: (niagra)
Ronan: now I believe...
Stephen: in you...
Ronan: (in you...)

All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: to a different beat
All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: (to a different beat)
All: eeyeah--oh, eayeh--oh, eayeh
Ronan: (and the world is turning)
All: --oh, by--yah
Stephen: (to a different beat)

Ronan: how far we've come
And how far to go
Rain does not fall
On one roof alone...
Stephen: (to a different beat)..
