"We Are the World: 25 For Haiti" Lyrics

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, somehow will soon make a change
We are all a part of
God’s great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

[Chorus]
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 choice we’re making
We’re 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
so there cries for help
will not be in vein
We can’t let them suffer
no we cannot turn away
Right now they need a helping hand
Nou se mond la
We are the Children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
so lets start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re 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
That a change can only come
When we stand together as one

[Chorus - All]
We are the world
We are the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So let’s start giving
Got to start giving
There’s a choice we’re making
We’re 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
Its for the children
We are the ones who make a brighter day
So lets start giving

There’s a choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

[Chorus - All]
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 choice we’re making
We’re saving our own lives
It’s true we 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
Choice were making
saving our own lives
It’s true we’ll make a better day
Just you and me

We all need somebody that we can lean on
when you wake up look around and see that your dreams gone
when the earth quakes we’ll help you make it through the storm
when the floor breaks a magic carpet to stand on
we are the World united by love so strong
when the radio isn’t on you can hear the songs
a guided light on the dark road your walking on
a sign post to find the dreams you thought was gone
someone to help you move the obstacles you stumbled on
someone to help you rebuild after the rubble’s gone
we are the World connected by a common bond
Love the whole planet sing it along

[Chorus - All]

Everyday citizens
everybody pitching in

You and I
You and I
Uh, 12 days no water
wishing will to live
we amplified the love we watching multiply
Feeling like the Worlds end
we can make the World win
Like Katrina, Africa, Indonesia
and now Haiti needs us, the need us, they need us

[Chorus - All]
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha
Haiti, Haiti, Ha, Ha, ha, ha, ha

[End]

Along with the original lyrics written by Lionel Richie and Michael Jackson, the new version of the song includes an all-star rap and auto-tuned verses by rapper Lil Wayne, Akon and T-Pain.
The video was once again organized by Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie. Oscar-winning writer-director Paul Haggis (Crash) directed the music video. The video is now available for purchase on iTunes, along with the single.
It was surreal moment to watch video of Quincy Jones and Lionel Ritchie produce the current Who's Who of the Music Industry and remake "We Are the World".
The first We Are the World album, single and merchandise raised $63 million for African famine relief. New technology may help the 2010 version reach that mark, despite diminishing record sales in general.
The video deviates from its predecessor in the number of rap segues incorporated and Janet Jackson singing the part that her brother sang in the original. In the 2010 video, she sings alongside the 1985 video of her brother singing his lines.
