Turn This World Around Lyrics

by Kenny Rogers

Once upon a time in a city made of gold
Streets were full of dreams
The air was full of hope
But somewhere in the midnight
Beneath the crooked moon
The children stopped believin'
So the flowers never bloomed
The elders lost their sanity
Mothers lost their smiles
Fathers chased the money got one too many miles
Water turned to whiskey
The visionaries, blind
While the people in the picture box
Were poisoning their minds - their minds, their minds
Let's burn this bridge and ride this river to another town
Hold up a holy flame
To all the rain that's pourin' down
Well hatred is the seed
The Devil planted in the ground
Our beating hearts are singin' now
For love to turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Let's dust off all the rust
It starts from diamonds on the sea
Ring the bells in the cathedrals
Rejoice for what's redeemed
Let's lock and load with truth
And blow up the lies
All of us are guilty, we have no alibi
Let's burn this bridge and ride this river to another town
Hold up a holy flame
To all the rain that's pourin' down
Well hatred is the seed
The Devil planted in the ground
Our beatin' hearts are singin' now
For love to turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Woah turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Woah turn this world around
Woah turn this world around
Let's burn this bridge and ride this river to another town
Hold up the holy flame
To all the rain that's pourin' down
Well hatred is the seed
The Devil planted in the ground
Our beatin' hearts are singin' out - singin' out
Our beatin' hearts are singin' out
For love to turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Turn this world around
Oh turn this world around
Oh
Woah, turn this world around
