Tears For The World Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Sanity for the world, I feel it deep down in my soul
When I think about all the things we're going through
So much misery and sadness, so much pain
It's just insane, I'm telling you

Over in Europe and Asia, the violence is contagious
What about Africa?
People starving, they got no food
So much hate so much grief, so much jealously

Said it makes you wanna cry, cry, cry
Cry, cry, cry, cry, cry, cry
Oh, tears for the world

I'm boo hoo, in tears for the world
There's go to be something we can do
When I think about all the lies that's been told
All the slaves that's been sold
Children robbed of the gift of life
Oh, it just ain't right

North and south America
Shoot outs in the schools
In Australia people are struggling to survive
Everywhere there's earthquakes, Katherina
Tornadoes, fires

It only makes you wanna cry, cry, cry
Tears for the world

Old caps are melting in the Antarctica
The water is rising
One day it's hot, next day it's cold

Everybody sing
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Soldiers laying down their lives so we can be free
But who cries for them if not you and me
Shed some tears for the world for all the children
Who have nothing to eat, no place to sleep
No mother, no father, no sister, no brothers

It makes you wanna cry, cry, cry, cry
Oh, it makes you wanna cry, cry, cry
Tears for the world

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord

Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
Have mercy, have mercy, have mercy on the world, Lord
