Album We Are the World. Tears Are Not Enough Lyrics. As every day goes by How can we close our eyes Until we open up our hearts. Seems like overnight We see the world in a different light Somehow our innocence is lost. How can we look away 'Cause every single day We've got to help at any cost. We can bridge the distance Only we can make the difference Don't ya know that tears are not enough

Northern Lights’ Tears are Not Enough isn’t about a holiday, of course, but it does have its own Christmas connection: on December 25, 1985, about 10 months after its release to radio and music television, the song’s behind-the-scenes documentary aired on CBC, giving everyone a chance to see legends like Gordon Lightfoot, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell sing alongside. While it’s generally my brother that has the better memory for childhood happenings, I recall my affection for Tears are Not Enough quite vividly
