Lyrics

Starts Within Your Heart (Lyrics & Music by Steve Laurie: 7/7/01)

The birds are singin’ out my back window and the sky is coming clear
And I can’t say I know what you’re thinking but hear me out anyway
You’re a lonely heart in a world full of people, hey I feel that way too
So maybe we two ain’t really so different
Two birds singin’ the blues

Birds singing free - Come and sing along
A brand new song - With a happy sound
The love of God - Could change this all around
Cause you don’t know what you might be missing, you can’t say for sure
You can’t see there’s angels around you, even though they are here
Cause Jesus said we should love one another, now that seems right to me
That makin’ this world a better place to live in, starts with you and me, come along and see

There’s a rainbow in the sky up above us, from a promise made long ago
A sign that our loving Creator can make new things out of old
It’s tough sometimes to love one another when your heart is black and blue
I think that’s why God sent the Lord Jesus, so we’d have a way to start anew

Come on and see - What a new heart can do
When you are meek - And walkin’ faithfully
Then you are free - To walk in love, because ...
Livin’ a life of love takes a servant, me first just won’t do
And I know I need God’s help to do it, my heart needs softening too
The good news is the sun comes up tomorrow, I get another new start
To show my love to God and other people, with a humble heart, gotta do my part

You say there’s just no way it could happen, your situations to far gone
Well let me ask you one little question, what have you got to lose?
Come on and see - What a new heart can do
Sing it with me - We’ll make a happy sound
The love of God - Could change this all around
Cause you don’t know what you might be missing, you can’t say for sure
So take a step of faith out into tomorrow and let the love within you flow
Self sacrifice is the example God gave us, so maybe that’s the place to start
Makin’ your world a better place to live in, starts within your heart, now’s the time to start
