Love, Turn a Heart Around

Behind the Song

I wrote this song in the mid-80’s, when I lived in western Massachusetts, to perform at a hunger relief fundraiser with my band, Atlantic Express. Later on, we recorded it and I released it on my 3rd album, Gentle Breeze, a cassette release.

A few years later, when I was living in northern Colorado, “Love, Turn a Heart Around” was used as the theme song for a United Way fundraising drive that brought in a million dollars for the needs of the folks in that community! I was delighted to have been able to contribute to that effort.

I included the song on my 2011 Retroflections CD, a project that brought together a number of my songs that I had released previously on tape or vinyl, but never on CD. —AM

Love, Turn A Heart Around
 Andy May

Let it warm like a fire
Let it glow like a star
Let it shine on forever
Let it be where we are

Chorus:
Love, turn a heart around
Love, turn a heart around
Love, turn a heart around today
Love, turn a heart around
Love, turn a heart around
Love, turn a heart around today

Let it reach every country
Let it cross every sea
Let it touch all the people
Let it start with you and me

Chorus

And, oh, we need a helping hand
To change this broken world to a together one
I know there is a guiding plan
Love is the best hope that we have
There is no better one

Chorus

Let it warm like a fire
let it glow like a star
Let it shine on forever
let it be where we are

Chorus
