Lyrics of A Million Voices

English (Original)

We are the worlds people Different yet we're the same We believe We believe in a dream
Praying for peace and healing I hope we can start again We believe We believe in a dream
So if you ever feel love is fading Together like the stars in the sky We can sing We can shine
Chorus: When you hear our voices call You won't be lonely anymore A million voices Your heart is like a beating drum Burning brighter than the sun A million voices
Now as the world is listening From cities and satellites We believe We believe In a dream
If you ever feel love is fading Together like the stars in the sky We can sing We can shine
Chorus: When you hear our voices call You won't be lonely anymore A million voices Your heart is like a beating drum Burning brighter than the sun
Bridge: When I look around at these faces I can see the stars in the sky We will sing We will shine
Singing out Singing out ooh Singing out Singing out ooh Singing out A million voices
