Hunger Protest Song

(Verse 1)

There is a world outside your window

See people dying , people crying, got no food to eat

Fear or dread

Where the only water flowing is the bitter string of tears

This is what hunger looks like

Hunger has a face, And hunger has a heart, But hunger has no place, If we will do our part.

(Verse 2)

This is what you can do,

You can swallow your selfishness and pride.

It ain't my life so tell me why it means so much to me?

It's not too late to make a brand new start

(Chorus)

raise a glass for everyone

let them know that someone cares

It's time to lend a hand to life the greatest gift of all

This world could be so beautiful,

Let's try

If you care enough for the living

(Verse 3)

And in our world of plenty,

He pretends he can't hear her

Seems embarrassed to be there

It has nothing to do with you
just keep breathing your clean air
You have more important things to do

but if I see one more child walking Just one more mile for water

If I wait one more minute longer It's one too many

(Verse 4)

We can't go on pretending day by day
I There's a choice we're making

When I think of what could be

What does hunger look like? something we can do.

(Chorus)

raise a glass for everyone

let them know that someone cares

It's time to lend a hand to life the greatest gift of all

This world could be so beautiful,

Let's try

If you care enough for the living

(Verse 5)

She calls out to the man on the street

“Sir, can you help me?

It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep,

Is there somewhere you can tell me?”

He walks on, doesn't look back

(Verse 6)

How will they think of you and me If it takes just one, just one

What if, what if, what if I'm the one?

I can still see

I see you.

(Chorus)

raise a n for everyone

let them know that someone cares

It's time to lend a hand to life the greatest gift of all

This world could be so beautiful,

Let's try

If you care enough for the living

(Verse 7)

There are solutions to the problems we see

We should all take a chance

Don't be afraid to lend a helping hand
