Lyrics of We Are the World

There comes a time when we need 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

Es kommt eine Zeit, wenn wir eine bestimmte anrufen müssen
Wenn die Welt kommen müssen zusammen als eine
Es gibt Menschen sterben
Oh, und es ist Zeit, eine Hand zum Leben verleihen
Das größte Geschenk von allen

We can't go on pretending day by day
That someone, somewhere 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

Wir können nicht weitermachen Tag gehen bei Tag
Dass jemand, irgendwo schnell eine Änderung vornehmen
Wir sind alle ein Teil des großen großen Gottes Familie
Und die Wahrheit - Sie wissen, Liebe ist alles was wir brauchen

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

Wir sind die Welt, wir sind die Kinder
Wir sind diejenigen, die einen helleren Tag machen
also lasst uns anfangen,
Es gibt eine Auswahl wir machen
Wir sparen unser eigenes Leben
Es ist wahr, wir machen einen besseren Tag
Nur du und ich



Well, send'em you 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

Nun, send'em du dein Herz
So wissen sie, dass jemand kümmert sich
Und ihr Leben wird stärker sein und frei
Wie Gott hat uns gezeigt,
Durch Drehen Stein zu Brot
Und so müssen wir alle eine helfende Hand



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 one change can only come
When we stand together as one

Wenn Sie nach unten und außen
Es scheint keine Hoffnung mehr
Aber wenn Sie nur glauben,
Es gibt keinen Weg können wir fallen
Gut, gut, gut, lass uns erkennen,
Dass man ändern kann nur
Wenn wir zusammen stehen als eine


'We Are the World' is a song and charity single originally recorded by the supergroup USA for Africa in 1985. It was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and co-produced by Quincy Jones and Michael Omartian for the album 'We Are the World'. Following Band Aid's 'Do They Know It's Christmas?' project in the UK, an idea for the creation of an American benefit single for African famine relief came from activist Harry Belafonte, who, along with fundraiser Ken Kragen, was instrumental in bringing the vision to reality. Several musicians were contacted by the pair, before Jackson and Richie were assigned the task of writing the song. Following several months of working together, the duo completed the writing of 'We Are the World' one night before the song's first recording session, in early 1985. The last recording session for the song was held on February 28, 1985. The historic event brought together some of the most famous artists in the music industry at the time.

The song was released on March 7, 1985, as the only single from the album. A worldwide commercial success, it topped music charts throughout the world and became the fastest-selling American pop single in history. The first ever single to be certified multi-platinum, 'We Are the World' received a 4× certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. However, the song garnered mixed reviews from journalists, music critics and the public. Fans enjoyed hearing racially and musically diverse recording artists singing together on one track, and felt satisfied in buying 'We Are the World', knowing that the money was going to charity. Other individuals, including many commentators in the rock press, were disappointed that the song did not challenge listeners as to why famines occur in the first place, and felt that the lyrics were self-aggrandizing.

Awarded numerous honors—including three Grammy Awards, one American Music Award and a People's Choice Award—the song was promoted with a critically received music video, a home video, a special edition magazine, a simulcast, and several books, posters and shirts. The promotion and merchandise aided the success of 'We Are the World', which was eventually named the biggest-selling single of all time. As of 2009, it has sold more than 20 million units and raised over $63 million for humanitarian aid in Africa and the US.

Following the devastation caused by the magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake in Haiti on January 12, 2010, a remake of the song by another all-star cast of singers was recorded on February 1, 2010. Entitled 'We Are the World 25 for Haiti', it was released as a single on February 12, 2010, and proceeds from the record will aid survivors in the impoverished country. 'We Are the World' has demonstrated that diverse musicians can productively work together, and has further influenced the movement within pop music to create songs that address humane concerns.
