USA For Africa
WE ARE THE WORLD By USA for Africa
(Michael Jackson & Lionel Richie)

There comes a time when we heed a certain call
When the world must come together as one
There are people dying
Oh, 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're all a part of God's great big family
And the truth, you know love is all we need

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

Well, send 'em your heart
So they know that someone cares
And their lives will be stronger and free
As God has shown us
By turning stone to bread
And so we all must lend a helping hand

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, let's realize
That a change can only come
When we stand together as one

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

IF ONLY FOR THE MOMENT, GIRL
(Steve Perry, Randy Goodrum)
I'm happy to just to see you here
If only for the moment, girl
Why do you seem so sincere?
Don't tell me you're unhappy, girl

Honey, you don't need nobody
You've got another place to stay
Oh, you don't need nobody
Is it another sad mistake?

I wish that we could fall again
If only for the moment, girl
It's not easy to pretend
I see your eyes
They show it, girl

No, you don't need nobody
You've got another place to stay
Oh, no you don't need nobody
Is it another sad mistake?
Sad mistake.sad mistake

Oh..
Stay with me awhile
Oh, if only for the moment girl
Please won't you lie to me?
Oh, if only for the moment, girl
Stay, stay, stay
Oh, if only for the moment, girl
Won't you believe in your man?
Oh, if only for the moment, girl

Oh, if only for the moment, girl
Oh, will you believe, believe in your man?
Oh, if only for the moment, girl
