Steve Miller Band, The - I Want To Make The World Turn Around Lyrics




I don't want to live in a world of darkness
I want to live in a world of light
I don't want to live in a world that's heartless
I want to live in a world of sight
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of shame
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of pain
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Turn the darkness into light
Turn the hunger into life
Turn the wrong into right
Put an end to the strife
Turn the blindness into sight
Save a human life
Make the world turn around

I want to live in a world of gladness
I want to know what your heart is made of
Don't want to live in a world of sadness
I want to live in a world of love
Well you know, I want to make the world turn around

Living in a world of justice
Living in a world of light
Living in a world of freedom
Living in a world of sight

I want to send a message
To every boy and girl
I want to send a message
About the world
We got to build it up
Stop tearing it down
We got to build it up
Make the world turn around

  3. Desert Ghost

    I want to be THAT man.

    In the sharkskin suit. Pockets full of treasure. Gold ring. Making the 🌎 spin.

    #Vice

    This is NOT from Down for the count. Its from the episode based on fake DEA raids. Where the woman is paid by the dealer who arrives by boat for Crocketts file.

  4. Don Brandinelli

    Steve Miller was always the cool uncle you wanted to have as a kid

  5. Chris Maddux

    I want to send a message....... to every boy and girl.... you got to build it up, stop tearing it down...

    Thank you for your nice response

  8. banthony

    This is the hit version from the 45 single and the album - unfortunately Steve/Capitol put the "video edit" remix version from the 12" single on his Complete Greatest Hits CD and his Ultimate Hits CD. Sax by Kenny G.

  9. wheelinthesky300

    Jeez, this should have been a big hit.
    Ranks up there with Steve's best.
    I actually thought it was from the mid-1970s.

    Maria Wiesener

    I agree

  10. Jesser Gates

  21. Bob G

    1986 Consistent Steve, Livin' in the USA, 1968: "Oh, we've got to make it, baby, oh, we've got to shake it, baby, oh, don't break it yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah". "Where are you going to, what are you going to do, do you think that it will be easy? Do you think that it will be pleasing? Hey, hey."

  22. Patrick Guidice

    Saw him play this live 2 days ago.Awesome.

  23. mkl62

    This hit from The Steve Miller Band was heard on the Miami Vice episode, Down for the Count: Part 2, which aired on January 16, 1987. Miami Vice will always be one of my all time favorite shows. It was the first to combine MTV with police action drama.

  24. TheLoyalOfficer

    Beautiful!

  34. Gerwyn Mudge

    When you play a guitar solo as though it were a sax and a sax solo as though it were a guitar, magic happens.

  47. Renno Vattio

    I really like this and only faintly recall having heard & enjoyed it years ago - but I just looked this tune up on wiki - NINETEEN SIXTY EIGHT!!??!! My god he was YEARS ahead. I would've pegged it for early '80s just by the sound.
    Impressed.

  48. stevedonyoung

    I rate this as a true rock classic, certainly one of Steve Miller's best songs

    Maria Wiesener

    +stevedonyoung
    Thank you, have a merry christmas

  49. MissDistarr60

    What a truly amazing song that holds  a very important message. To the creator of this video, you honored this brilliant song with your equally brilliant video and I thank you for the effort I know it took to make this.  I just wanted to mention to those who weren't aware of it, that Kenny G.  is the musician responsible for the incredible performance on the Saxophone.  This is easily one of SMB's best efforts.

    Maria Wiesener

    @MissDistarr60
    Thanks for your nice compliment on my work. I liked the sound of it together with the pictures
    Greetings Maria

    Michael Weston

    Man i could not agree more, all time classic, best ever Sax riff i've heard here on planet earth...

  55. MetallicBill

    You SM fans remember his appearance on the original Arsenio Hall show? He said seeing Pink Floyd inspired him to come out of retirement and he's been performing ever since then.

    Maria Wiesener

    @MetallicBill  Hello 
    I can imagine that
    I wish you sucses 
    Greetings Ria

    MetallicBill

    Sadly now, with Richard Wright passed on, and Roger and Dave still at odds, no more live PF, but they were able to perform together on special occasion

    Steve Baker

    you can hear the pink Floyd in the solo...it's very obvious

    MetallicBill

    One of his BEST, absolutely, the message is as timeless as any cry for PEACE in our World

    Maria Wiesener

    @MetallicBill  I totally agree
