There is a time when we should hear the certain calls
'Cause the world it seems it's right in this line
'Cause there's a chance for taking in needing our own lives 
It seems we need nothing at all
I used to feel I should give away my heart 
And it shows that fear of needing them
Then I read the headlines and it said they're dying there
And it shows that we must heed instead 

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 chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

Give in your heart and you will see that someone cares
'Cause you know that they can feed them all
Then I read the paper and it said that you've been denied 
And it shows the second we will call

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 chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

Now there's a time when we must love them all
And it seems that life, it don't make love at all
But if you'd been there, and I'll love you more and more
It seems in life, I didn't do that

We are the world, the world 
We are the children, are the children 
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let's start giving, let's start giving
There's a chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter 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 let's start giving, let's start giving
But there's a chance we're taking, taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me

We are the world, shalom 
We are the children, shalingin 
We are the ones who make a brighter day, shalom 
So let's start giving, 'cause that's what we're being 
There's a chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me
Come on, yeah

We are the world, shalom 
We are the children, shalingin 
We are the ones who make a brighter day, shalom 
So let's start giving, 'cause that's what we're being 
There's a chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
Just you and me
Oh yeah, we got it

We are the world, shalom 
We are the children, shalingin 
We are the ones who make a brighter day, shalom 
So let's start giving, cause that's what we're being 
There's a chance we're taking 
We're taking our own lives 
It's true we'll make a brighter day
