Four people dreaming
Ten thousand drowning
Six billion searching
Five of them knowing
Nine million crashing
Two angels flying

It ain't in the numbers
It ain't in the time

Three million orphans
Twelve thousand mansions
Four nuns believing
Five million begging
Two doctors trying
Six thousand waiting

It ain't in the numbers
It ain't in the time

It doesn't really matter where you are
Around every corner there is a broken heart
You can save a helpless starving town
With a couple pennies that you find

It ain't in the numbers
It ain't in the time

Four mothers hoping
Eighteen bums falling
Three children laughing
Two billion dying
One person praying
Could probably save them

It ain't in the numbers
It ain't in the time
