Lyrics[2]

  • Spoken:
  • Think about the generations and to say we want to make it a better
  • world for our children and our children's children. So that they know
  • it's a better world for them; and think if they can make it a better
  • place.
  • There's a place in your heart
  • And I know that it is love
  • And this place could be much
  • Brighter than tomorrow.
  • And if you really try
  • You'll find there's no need to cry
  • In this place you'll feel
  • There's no hurt or sorrow.
  • There are ways to get there
  • If you care enough for the living
  • Make a little space, make a better place.
  • Chorus:
  • Heal the world
  • Make it a better place
  • For you and for me and the entire human race
  • There are people dying
  • If you care enough for the living
  • Make a better place for
  • You and for me.
  • If you want to know why
  • There's a love that cannot lie
  • Love is strong
  • It only cares for joyful giving.
  • If we try we shall see
  • In this bliss we cannot feel
  • Fear or dread
  • We stop existing and start living
  • Then it feels that always
  • Love's enough for us growing
  • Make a better world, make a better world.
  • Chorus:
  • Heal the world
  • Make it a better place
  • For you and for me and the entire human race.
  • There are people dying
  • If you care enough for the living
  • Make a better place for
  • You and for me.
  • Bridge:
  • And the dream we would conceived in
  • Will reveal a joyful face
  • And the world we once believed in
  • Will shine again in grace
  • Then why do we keep strangling life
  • Wound this earth, crucify it's soul
  • Though it's plain to see, this world is heavenly
  • Be God's glow.
  • We could fly so high
  • Let our spirits never die
  • In my heart I feel
  • You are all my brothers
  • Create a world with no fear
  • Together we'll cry happy tears
  • See the nations turn
  • Their swords into plowshares
  • We could really get there
  • If you cared enough for the living
  • Make a little space to make a better place.
  • Chorus:
  • Heal the world
  • Make it a better place
  • For you and for me and the entire human race
  • There are people dying
  • If you care enough for the living
  • Make a better place for
  • You and for me.
  • Refrain (2x)
  • There are people dying if you care enough for the living
  • Make a better place for you and for me.
  • There are people dying if you care enough for the living
  • Make a better place for you and for me.
  • You and for me / Make a better place
  • You and for me / Make a better place
  • You and for me / Make a better place
  • You and for me / Heal the world we live in
  • You and for me / Save it for our children
  • You and for me / Heal the world we live in
  • You and for me / Save it for our children
  • You and for me / Heal the world we live in
  • You and for me / Save it for our children
  • You and for me / Heal the world we live in
  • You and for me / Save it for our children
