Song Description

About gettin' motivated to help other people out. One version has a bridge focusing on AIDS, Malaria, and TB in Africa. Another version has the bridge focusing on kids in America who are sick. Song can also be edited without bridge.

Story Behind the Song

Watching Bono and Oprah kick off the RED Campaign on T.V., I was moved, wrote this song, and slowly began the "Madison For Africa" Project to raise money for The Global Fund to help those struggling with Aids, Malaria, and TB in Africa.

Lyrics

Verse 1
In a desert burnin', a flower will grow
one tiny drop of water and the roots will look for more
If your body is frail can your spirit be strong?
Strugglin' half way round the world
while I pretend there's nothing wrong?

Prechorus
Cuz' I've never dared to change the way things are
my eyes have been closed
If I could make one wish come true
I'd ask for the strength to follow through, and

Chorus 1
Reach through the T.V. screen, reach for your humanity
Find a way to share the things that we both need
I don't know if God keeps score
I don't know why some are born with more
But if I I can't help somebody, make a wish real
What am I here for? What am I here for?

Verse 2
There's a message in your eyes, it whispers through the night
When you strip this life down, love is all you take with you
May not have much of a voice, but I have a choice
To see you suffering everyday or see what I can do

Prechorus
No more excuses, I refuse to keep my heart
From making one wish come true
I've got to stand up and follow through and

Chorus 2
Reach through the T.V. screen, reach for your humanity
Find a way to share the things that we both need
I don't know if God keeps score
I don't know why some are born with more
But if I can't help somebody, make a wish real, what am I here for?

Bridge- Beat Poetry

Closing Chorus
Reach through the T.V. screen, reach for your humanity
Find a way to share the things that we both need
I don't know if God keeps score
I don't know why some are born with more

But if I can't help somebody, if I can't help somebody
if I can't help somebody make a Wish real

What am I here for? Oh yeah
What am I here for? Oh yeah
What am I here for? Oh yeah
What am I here for?

I'm here to help somebody, make a wish real, wanna make it yours
