We Are the World Lyrics

"We're The World (USA For Africa)"

There comes a time when we heed 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...

    The song wad meant for the unfortunate and homeless people in Africa. Michael wrote most of the song with Lionel Richie. Many popular singers in the 80's (the time when it was released) sang the song such as Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder. It was about how the world and its countries are different but there are times that we need to come together and help each other as much as we can and every little bit helps.
