Love Is On Our Side

Album: Second Hand Life (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Not to be confused with the 1997 Brazen Abbot track of the same name (which Turner co-wrote and performed on), this song was written by Turner and Aleks de Carvalho in the '90s and was later included on the Second Hand Life album.
  • Turner shares his hope for a peaceful future with an optimistic message of love and faith. He explains: "This is a mid-tempo ballad with a statement and its message is still true and applicable today. It's a plea for world peace and social harmony and to not to lose your faith... we can change the world. I know it seems a bit altruistic but at least we have to dream like John Lennon inferred in his song, 'Imagine.' I believe this dream is still within reach!" >>
