Commentsby Zucchero/Anggun. Alan Simon: Boulogne: When Zucchero sang this song, it took on a new dimension. His impressive performance seemed to exorcize the world. Then Anggun added grace to the track and Billy Preston, Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) and Jeremy Spencer (Fleetwood Mac) brought their magical chords. There's no doubt, alchemy is at work! And we must not forget Lee Holdridge conducting the Prague Symphony Orchestra. When I wrote this track, I simply wanted to express my love for the Earth but these fantastic artists have taken it a step farther; "World" has become a plea for reconciliation.

    Lyrics »

World, forgotten child, forsaken dream,
In silence grieves,
World, a mourning sky, a weeping sea,
Abandoned lies.

Lost is the cadence of the heart,
Broken strings, a promise torn apart,
Lost is the music of the soul,
Dying echo, a story yet untold.

World, forgotten words, forsaken love,
In silence yearns.
World, a whispered song, a gentle sign,
Discarded burns.

Lost is the memory of time,
Broken wires, a vision out of line.
Lost is the chorus of life,
Fading air borne away to die.

World, forgotten faith, forsaken hope,
In silence falls.
World, a murmured wish, an uttered cry,
Rejected calls.

World, clinging to the sun.
World, a promise yet to come.
World, clutching at a dream.
Of the few who rise to redeem
World

Comments(Instrumental) by Brankica Vasic (& Olivier Rousseau) with the Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. Alan Simon: Yugoslavia: We met the Slavonic diva, Brankica Vasic, in the very centre of Belgrade. It seems to me that this country has so much to say, so much to offer. In the taverns of the old toen, the last "Tamburasi" were still singing. Almost everyone had gone home but as the musicians played on, tears ran down Danijela's cheeks.
