world cry lyrics – lloyd

“world cry”
(feat. r. kelly, keri hilson & k’naan)

[k’naan]
ever wondered about the hurricanes?
ever see the anger in the rain, false
i think it’s just the world crying for
asking what the h*ll we dying for
but here’s lloyd, r. kelly, miss keri
and k’naan, yo the sh*t is getting scary

[lloyd]
they spend up all our money, yeah
on the rockets in the sky, ah, ah,
but they don’t have a reason
so they generate a lie
to destruct us from the times
there’s a hood in every city, yeah
from compton to bombay, yeah, yeah
when n*body likes to be there
the system found a way
that made them wanna stay
and i say, ah, da ri rap da ra ra, da ri rap da ra ra
da ri rap da, yeah
i hate to see the whole world cry,
i hate to see the whole world cry
if it was up to me, i would wipe tears from your eyes
i hate to see the world cry

[r kelly]
we need a plan, anybody please
so sick of this god d*mn earth
that i wish that i could hitch hike to heaven
and buy the god’s studio and put in work
playing down my melodies,
get the whole world one song to sing
cause hatred’s got ourselves a pickle
a love costs 5 cents less than a nickel
i’m talking about 1 .. one love, one call up
n*body’s rich, n*body’s poor
n*body’s less, n*body’s more
n*body’s winning, n*body’s loosing
no categories, we all music
if we can’t come to see
if the whole world needs these
then we can touch and agree
that we are the true enemies
and it makes me wanna say
na na na na na na na na
na na na na na na na na
i hate to see the whole world cry,
i hate to see the whole world cry
if it was up to me, i would wipe tears from your eyes
i hate to see the world cry

[keri hilson]
looking in the mirror, seeking in the peace
every day’s constant battle
between what’s wrong and right
i just wanna live my life
praise for the future
is that we learn from our mistakes, oh yeah
halfway into destruction
but it’s not too late
to late to make a change
so i’ll say
da ra rap da ra ra, da ra rap da ra ra
and i hate to see the whole world cry

[all]
i hate to see the world cry
i hate to see the whole world cry

[keri hilson]
if it was up to me, i would wipe tears from your eyes
i hate to see the world cry

[lloyd]
i don’t wanna see them cry
somebody help me understand
anybody got a plan, whoa, whoa
i hate to see the whole world cry

[k’naan]
streets on fire, burning
every herd every city is hurting
i will wipe every tear, you shed in
cause i hate to see the whole world cry
i hate to see the whole world cry
i hate to see the whole world cry.
