Song Lyric Sunday – A Song That Features a Famous Person – “Heart Shaped World”

“Now everybody knows the earth is round 
Chris Columbus showed us that”

Apparently there are two albums and two title songs called Heart Shaped World sung two by entirely different people. This song, featuring a mention of Christopher Columbus, is the title song of the debut album of country music singer Jessica Andrews. It was released in 1999 and happens to have been co-written by my ex brother-in-law, William Lavelle Burnette.



This ain’t the planet I’ve been living on 
It don’t circle round the sun 
Ever since the day you came along 
Everything I do revolves around you 
You’re my only one

Cause I’m waking up to love; I’m crossing new frontiers 
Living in a heart shaped world 
And I’m starting to see that we could stay forever here 
Living in a heart shaped world

Now everybody knows the earth is round 
Chris Columbus showed us that 
Call me crazy but I think I’ve found 
A reason to believe, maybe history 
Should review the facts

Cause I’m waking up to love; I’m crossing new frontiers 
Living in a heart shaped world 
And I’m starting to see that we could stay forever here 
Living in a heart shaped world

I’ve heard that love can turn your world around 
But you have changed the shape of my world somehow 
Everything I do revolves around you 
Now I’m waking up to love; I’m crossing new frontiers 
Living in a heart shaped world 
And I’m starting to see that we could stay forever here 
Living in a heart shaped world

Songwriters: Brian Tabor / Gayla Borders / Jeff Borders / W.L. Burnette
