Lyric Song for the world


Every morning
when I wake up
I m already too late

cause I can t sleep at night
always having this dream I hate:

I see wars and people dying
their friends with tears in their eyes
I see rich people sighing
and telling lots of lies

this can t go on
oh no
this can t go on

Refrain:

I want to sing a song
for the world
It might be better some day
we must try and find a way
I want to sing a song for the world

And then when I watch the news
what I see I can t stand:
Peoples houses being burnt down
cause they re from a strange land

Unemployment everywhere
oh - what can we do?
Now don t just look away
cause I m talking especially to you!

this can t go on
oh no
this can t go on

Refrain

Crime, pollution, war, bombs and hunger - everywhere
Torture, drugs, racism, hate and killing - don t you care?

Refrain
