"One World" as written by Paul Michael Barry, Mark Taylor and Lionel B. Jr. Richie....
I hear a baby crying
A sad sound, a loney sound
I want to take her in my arms
And then I dry away all her tears

I see a boy, who's frightened
A young boy, with old eyes
I long to say 'You're welcome here,
You can be happy now that you're warm'

We're all a part of one world
We all can share the same dream
And if you just reach out to me
Then you will find deep down inside
I'm just like you

Loud voices raised in anger
Speak harsh words, such cruel words
Why do they speak so selfishly
When we have got so much we can share?

So let your hearts be open
And reach out with all your love
There are no strangers now
They are our brothers now
And we are one

We're all a part of one world
We all can share the same dream
And if you just reach out to me
Then will find deep down inside
I'm just like you

We're all a part of one world
We all can share the same dream
And if you just reach out to me
Then will find deep down inside
I'm just like you

I'm just like you

    General CommentFirst to comment on this amazing song...

    In our world today, we need more people speaking about this song's message--how, despite everything, we are all alike, and we can all come together to share a common goal.

    I personally love the second verse...

    But, there are a few mistakes. After listening to the song several times, this is what I found:

    I hear a baby crying
    A sad sound, a lonely sound
    I want to take her in my arms
    And then I dry away all her tears

    I see a boy who's frightened
    A young boy, with cold eyes
    I long to say, "You're welcome here
    You can be happy now that you're warm"

    We're all apart of one world
    We all can share the same dream
    And if you just reach out to me
    Then you will find
    Deep down inside, I'm just like you

    Loud voices raised in anger
    Speak harsh words, such cruel words
    Why do they speak so selfishly
    When we have got so much we can share

    So let your hearts be opened
    And reach out with all your love

    There are no strangers now
    They are our brothers now
    And we are one

    We're all apart of one world
    We all can share the same dream
    And if you just reach out to me
    Then you will find
    Deep down inside, I'm just like you

    We're all apart of one world
    We all can share the same dream
    And if you just reach out to me
    Then you will find
    Deep down inside, I'm just like you

    Just like you
