"MAKE IT HAPPEN"

Verse 1
Walkin' through the city streets today.
The world is growin' colder in so many ways.
Take a look around, and you can see,
There's hopelessness in living, with many in need.
So few people reachin' out
To give a helping hand.
It's a selfish world we're living in,
But change it we can.
Chorus 1
We can be the sunshine in somebody's corner.
We can be the lifeboat for someone who's sinking at sea.
We can change the world and help others make it happen,
But it's gotta start with you and me.
Verse 2
There's something we just gotta do,
Help the broken-hearted
By healing their wounds.
Jesus gave His life for them, and we should do the same.
He feels for the lost and lonely,
Let's tell them today.
Chorus 2
We can be the sunshine in somebody's corner.
We can be the lifeboat for someone who's sinking at sea.
We can change the world and help others make it happen,
But it's gotta start with you and me.
Bridge
Let's ease the pain,
And heal the hearts
Of the war-torn and weary,
And those that thirst
In the heat of the desert.
Instrumental break:
Name section 1
No use sitting, waitin' on my sister or my brother,
My auntie or my uncle or my father or my mother,
My inlaws or my outlaws, or my niece or any other.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
And we can't leave it up to Danny, Pete or Tom and Jerry,
Mutt and Jeff, or Tony, Joey, Stephanie or Kelly,
Angie, Rita, Bob, or Steven, Marianne or Teri.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
How can we just sit here and watch them die away?
He feels for the lost and lonely, let's tell them today.
Chorus 3
We can be the sunshine in somebody's corner.
We can be the lifeboat for someone who's sinking at sea.
We can change the world and help others make it happen,
But it's gotta start with you and me.
Chorus 4
We can be the sunshine in somebody's corner.
We can be the lifeboat for someone who's sinking at sea.
We can change the world and help others make it happen,
But it's gotta start with you and me.
It's gotta start with you and me.
Name section 2
No use sitting, waiting on the U.N., or Mandella,
Or the Nobel-winning author of a number-one best seller,
Gerry Adams, Tony Blair or any other fella.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
No use pressing Heffner's girls or trying to "hustle" Larry!
Robert Redford, or a Grant, be it Hugh or Cary;
For certain we cannot depend on Sally meeting Harry.
No, 'cause we've gotta start it.
No use sitting, waiting on Stallone or Daryl Hannah,
Robin Williams, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise or Kenneth Branaugh,
Demi Moore, Richard Gere, Denzel or Alan Alda.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
And we can't leave it up to Sting, Oasis, or Madonna,
All for one or Boyz to Men or U2 or Nirvanah,
Sheryl Crow or Courtney, or Cobain 'cause he's a gonner.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
No, we can't leave it up to someone else to tell 'em for us,
BBC or MTV or a "Hallelujah" chorus,
Or even Steven's billion-dollar fake tyrannosaurus
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
No point counting on Alanis or the Hansons,
No doubt, Smashing Pumpkins, Jewel or Marlin Manson,
Forget about Jon Bon Jovi, Whacko Jacko or his dancin'.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
Not Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton or Mariah Carey,
A Beatle or a Stone, a Cardigan or a Cranberry,
Can't wait around for Sporty, Ginger, Baby, Posh or Scary.
[It's gotta start with you and me.]
