song lyrics

Written and composed by Michael Jackson

(Spoken)
Think about, um... the generations, and to say,
"We want to make it a better place for our children, and our children's children,
So that they - they know - it's a better world for them
and think, if they can make it a better place..."

(Sung)
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
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

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...

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

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
(we could) 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

(Repeat CHORUS x3)

There are people dying
If you care enough for the living
Make a better place for you and for me

(Repeat x2)

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)
