World On Fire Lyrics - Sarah McLachlan
Review The Song (3)
Hearts are worn in these dark ages
You're not alone in this story's pages
The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying
And I'll try to hold it in, yeah I'll try to hold it in
The world's on fire and
It's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water
(Try and bring my share)
I try to bring more
More than I can handle
(Bring it to the table)
Bring what I am able
I watch the heavens but I find no calling
Something I can do to change what's coming
Stay close to me while the sky is falling
Don't wanna be left alone, don't wanna be alone
Hearts break, hearts mend
Love still hurts
Visions clash, planes crash
Still there's talk of
Saving souls, still the cold
Is closing in on us
We part the veil on our killer sun
Stray from the straight line on this short run
The more we take, the less we become
The fortune of one that means less for some

Nice Song | Reviewer: Nik | 12/24/2007
The things we take for granted are things people struggle for everyday. Oh, and with respect to what Kalie said, "Don't support . . . underpaid labour."
So opposed to paying these people a dollar an hour we pay them . . . nothing? Does that make sense? They have no other alternative, they will at least be able to make it a little easier for thier children, and maybe thier children's children will be able to at least go to school. Think about it, if they are paid the same as an American employee then the competitive advantage is gone and it will be easier for an American labourer to make it, they have to be paid less at the moment for their economy to move forward and their standard of living to rise, slowly but surely.
My Song | Reviewer: Abby | 11/21/2004
This song just means so much to me. It has such depth and feeling and with a rhythm that can't be beat! I can remember singing with my father in the car and this song is what we were singing!
Awsome song | Reviewer: kalie | 9/30/2004
It's about time that we look at the inequalities in this world. It's time we question our consumeristic, materialist society. Each one of us must contribute positively to making the world a farer, more just society. We can all start by shopping ethically. Don't support child labor, forced labor, or under paid labor.
