Keeper of the Light

Album: Here to Hear (1989)

Songfacts®:

  • Credited variously to Steve Upton, Turner and Dwight Anthony or just Upton and Turner, it is not clear if this is Martin Turner, Ted Turner or both. However, judging from the slightly mystical lyrical content, it was written principally by Ted Turner.

    The second track from the Here To Hear album runs to 3 minutes 56 seconds. It has no connection with either a novel of the same name or with a lighthouse, but was introduced at least once by Andy Powell as an ode to motherhood. Ted Turner provided the lead vocal. >>
