Album: Dangerous (1991)
Charted: 2 27
  • There's a place in your heart
    And I know that it is love
    And this place could be much
    Brighter than tomorrow

    And if you really try
    You'll find there's no need to cry
    In this place you'll feel
    There's no hurt or sorrow

    There are ways to get there
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a little space
    Make a better place

    Heal the world
    Make it a better place
    For you and for me
    And the entire human race

    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make it a better place
    For you and for me

    If you want to know why
    There's love that cannot lie
    Love is strong
    It only cares of joyful giving

    If we try we shall see
    In this bliss we cannot feel
    Fear od dread
    We stop existing and start living

    The it feels that always
    Love's enough for us growing
    So make a better world
    Make a better place

    Heal the world
    Make it a better place
    For you and for me
    And the entire human race
    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a better place for you and for me

    And the dream we were conceived in
    Will reveal a joyful face
    And the world we once believed in
    Will shine again in grace
    Then why do we keep strangling life

    Wound this earth, crucify its soul
    Though it's plain to see
    This world is heavenly
    Be god's glow

    We could fly so high
    Let our spirits never die
    In my heart I feel you are all my brothers
    Create a world with no fear
    Together we cry happy tears
    See the nations turn their swords into plowshares

    We could really get there
    If you cared enough for the living
    Make a little space
    To make a better place

    Heal the world
    Make it a better place
    For you and for me
    And the entire human race
    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a better place for you and for me

    There are people dying
    If you care enough for the living
    Make a better place for you and for me

  • Aileen Joy M. from South Cotabato, Philippines I can't stop my tears from falling every time I hear "Heal the World". I wish I met MJ before, thank him and hug him for this very beautiful song he left for the world to hear. This time of pandemic , the song touches my heart and soul. I love you MJ.
  • Miles from Vancouver, CanadaIt's hard to believe that we're all going through this horrible pandemic that's making us prisoners in our own homes. This song has essentially taken on a new meaning. I guess it is kinda preachy, but it has a beautiful melody. It even makes a perfect closer for the History hits album.
  • Davilla Emota from Papua New GuineaWhat a nice, meaningful song.
  • Jane from Jinan, ChinaWhat a beautiful song. One of my all-time favorite, soothing my heart gently every time I listen to it.
  • Rhi from Kathmandu, Nepalthank you Michael. this song was one of the first songs of Michael i heard. and i couldn't help but fall in love. RIP.
  • Hannah from Ottawa, OnThanks for the music MJ.♥
  • Camille from Toronto, OhBeautiful rendition of the song sung at the end of MJ's memorial at the Staple Center in LA. RIP, MJ. Thanks for the memories.
  • Erin from Boston, Massachusetts, Ma"Heal The World" might be one of the most beautiful MJ songs ever produced. He was a gentle soul tormented by an abusive childhood, a relentless media, and an isolating fame. If only he knew how his death has deeply affected people around the world. RIP MJ 7/3/09
