Michael's Message

Heal the world
(written and composed by Michael Jackson)




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... 

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 
So make a better world 
Make a better world... 

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 

And the dream we were 
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 its 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... 

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 

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 

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 

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 
You and for me


Man in the mirror

I'm gonna make a change, for once in my life
It's gonna feel real good, gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right...

As I, turn up the collar on my favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street, with not enough to eat
Who am I, to be blind?
Pretending not to see thier needs
A summer's disregard, a broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other on the wind ya' know
'Cause they got no where to go
That's why I want you to know

Chorus:
I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
(If you wanna make the world a better place)
Take a look at yourself, and then make a change
(Take a look at yourself, and then make a change)

(Na na na, na na na, na na, na nah)

I've been a victim of a selfish kind of love
It's time that I realize
That there are some with no home, not a nickle to loan
Could it really be me, pretending that they're not alone?

A willow deeply scarred, somebody's broken heart
And a washed-out dream
(Washed out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind, ya' see
'Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me (Starting with me)

Chorus
(Repeat - ad lib)

Make that change



 What more can I give
(written by Michael Jackson)

How many people will have to die before we will take a stand
How many chiledren will have to cry, before we do all we can
If sending your love is all you can give
To help one live, mmm

How many times can we turn our heads
And pretend we cannot see
Healing the wounds of our broken earth
We are one global family
Just sending your prayers
Is something you feel
Helping one heal
What have I got that I can give
(What have I got that I can give, tell me)
What have I got that I can give, yeah, oh
To love and to teach you
To hold and to need you
What more can I give (what more can I give, yeah)

Now let's rather lay down our fears and reach out and make a pact
Show him the love that is in our hearts, let us bring salvation back
Just sending your love has the power to heal
So let's all give

What have I got that I can give
(It's not allot to give, just a little bit)
What have I got that I can give
(Everyone should be a part of it)
To love and to teach you
To hold and to need you
What more can I give

Say the words, I'll lay me down for you
Just call my name, I am your friend
See then why do they keep teaching us
Such hate and cruelty
We should give over and over again

What have I got that I can give
(We should give over and over again)
What have I got that I can give
(Oh my God, oh my God)
See, to love and to teach you
To hold and to need you
What more can I give

What have I got that I can give (aah)
What have I got that I can give
(Give to you, give to you)
See, to love and to teach you
To hold and to need you
What more can I give (Oooh)

Repeat

What have I got that I can give
(Give to you, we're gonna give to you)
What have I got that I can give
To hold and conceal you
To love and to heal you
What more can I give

What have I got that I can give
(What have I got)
(Send them your prayers)
What have I got that I can give
(Show the world how much you really care)
(To love you)
To love and to teach you
(To hold you, to need you)To hold and to need you
What more can I give

What have I got that I can give …


Earth Song 
(written and composed by Michael Jackson)

What about sunrise
What about rain
What about all the things
That you said we were to gain…
What about killing fields
Is there a time
What about all the things
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the blood we’ve shed before
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth, these weeping shores?

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

What have we done to the world
Look what we’ve done
What about all the peace
That you pledge your only son…
What about flowering fields
Is there a time
What about all the dreams
That you said was yours and mine
Did you ever stop to notice
All the children dead from war
Did you ever stop to notice
The crying Earth these weeping shores

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

I used to dream
I used to glance beyond the stars
Now I don’t know where we are
Although I know we’ve drifted far

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah

Hey, what about yesterday
(What about us)
What about the seas
(What about us)
The heavens are falling down
(What about us)
I can’t even breathe
(What about us)
What about the bleeding Earth
(What about us)
Can’t we feel its wounds
(What about us)
What about nature’s worth
(ooo, ooo)
It’s our planet’s womb
(What about us)
What about animals
(What about it)
We’ve turned kingdoms to dust
(What about us)
What about elephants
(What about us)
Have we lost their trust
(What about us)
What about crying whales
(What about us)
We’re ravaging the seas
(What about us)
What about forest trails
(ooo, ooo)
Burnt despite our pleas
(What about us)
What about the holy land
(What about it)
Torn apart by creed
(What about us)
What about the common man
(What about us)
Can’t we set him free
(What about us)
What about children dying
(What about us)
Can’t you hear them cry
(What about us)
Where did we go wrong
(ooo, ooo)
Someone tell me why
(What about us)
What about babies
(What about it)
What about the days
(What about us)
What about all their joy
(What about us)
What about the man
(What about us)
What about the crying man
(What about us)
What about Abraham
(What as us)
What about death again
(ooo, ooo)
Do we give a damn

Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah
Aaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaah



We are the world




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, somewhere 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
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us by turning stone to bread
So we all must lend a helping hand

[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

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 will only come
When we stand together as one

[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
