lyrics

V E R S E 1
Oh, my child, listen to me
Now that you are almost grown
There is one thing I must ask you
As you set out on your own

Please do me this single favor
You’re the one who’ll do it best
Sorry that I’ve left it to you
Please just heed this one request

C H O R U S
Save the world
Save the world
Is all I ask of you
To save the world
Just save the world
The one thing you must do

V E R S E 2
As a boy, my father told me
Anyone can sing a song
I need you to seize your moment
Heal the wound, and right the wrong

Tyrants rage and tides are rising
Set your sites and move the sun
You have youth and you have power
You have time to get it done

C H O R U S
Save the world
Save the world
The thing I didn’t do
Was save the world
Just save the world
It’s all I ask of you

B R I D G E
No, it’s not that I thought
I could be of no use
Yes, I should have done more
And I have no excuse

Still there’s mountains to climb
Righteous seas to be swum
Always something beyond
That we shall overcome

V E R S E 3
And when you are old as I am
Years from now when I’m long gone
Your descendants may begrudge this
Burden they’ll be taking on

C H O R U S 3
Save the world
Save the world
In dire circumstance
To save the world
To save the world
Why did you miss your chance?

C H O R U S 4
Save the world
Save the world
It’s all they ask of you
So, save the world
We’ll save the world
The one thing we must do
The only thing that we can do
