One Heart

Song Notes

This is the first of many songs I’ve written with my friend Michael Lille. I’d had it partly finished for a while before he came along with the right touch and a fresh perspective.

We joke that we hope it’ll someday be a national anthem for some new country, but we did perform it at Olympic Village in Atlanta during the 1996 Summer Olympics!

Since writing it I’ve discovered several songs in circulation with this title, but I was blissfully unaware of back then.

Well the storm on the ocean is the rain downtown
The sun shines somewhere when the night comes down
The moon’s still dancing when the sky turns blue
And the love I’m feeling is the love in you

One heart, one mind
One love is with us all the time
One life, one light
One spirit in the world tonight

You know the clouds weigh heavy in the summer air
The wind shakes autumn till the trees are bare
The snow in December fills the warm blue sea
And the love you’re feeling is the love in me

One heart, one mind
One love is with us all the time
One life, one light
One spirit in the world tonight

Find our way, make our peace
Accept on faith things we cannot see
And carry on, see this through
One for all, all for me and you

Now the song I’m singing goes a long way back
It’s love’s own engine running down this track
The light in the tunnel coming into view
Says the hope I’m feeling is the hope in you

One heart, one mind
One love is with us all the time
One life, one light
One spirit in the world tonight

One heart, one mind
One love is with us all the time
One life, one light
One spirit in the world
