Lyrics

1. Every mornin’ I go runnin’ out my door,
Step into the car and put the pedal to the floor
I have no time for all the sick and all the poor,
It seems enough just getting’ through my day.
When I get home I put my feet into my bed,
Pull the sheets up to my chin and comfy pillow to my head
But I cannot sleep I hear the streets were cryin’ in their dread
Yeah I can hear them say…

Chorus
When the world falls asleep
When the world falls asleep,
When we all fall asleep to the tune of ignorance, who will light the way?

2. I’ve heard it said, “God is a lamp unto our feet.”
But he won’t serve the purpose well until we step out in the street and...
Spread out love to every one we meet
In what we do more than in what we say.
And as the world goes round the world religions fight
Over who is in the wrong and who is in the right.
Our children singin’ “All are precious in his sight.”
While we look the other way.

Chorus
And the world falls asleep
And the world falls asleep,
And we all fall asleep to the tune of ignorance, who will light the way?
When the world falls asleep,
When the world falls asleep,
When we all fall asleep to the tune of ignorance, who will light the way?

Bridge
So wake up in the North. Wake up in the South.
Wake up in the West. Wake up in the East.
Wake up for the hungry. Wake up for the homeless.
Wake up for the thirsty. Wake up for the least of these.
Wake up! Wake up!

3. The problem seems so big and we feel so small,
It’s hard to imagine makin’ any difference at all
But helpin’ one life at a time and being faithful to the call,
We’ll be a world that is wide awake.

Final Chorus
And we won’t fall asleep,
No we won’t fall asleep,
No we won’t fall asleep to the tune of ignorance, ‘cause who will light the way,
When the world falls asleep,
When the world falls asleep,
When we all fall asleep to the tune of ignorance, who will light the way?
