"Turn It into Love" is a single released by Kylie Minogue. It was taken from her debut album Kylie (1988). The single was released in December 1988 in Japan only, where it reached number 1. The b-side was a new song "Made in Heaven" which also served as the b-side to both "Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi" and "It's No Secret" in other international territories.

"Turn It into Love" was the sixth single to be released from the album Kylie and was written and produced by Stock Aitken Waterman. Considered something of a hidden gem, Kylie performed the song (as part of medleys) during her On a Night Like This Tour and Showgirl Homecoming shows in the 2000s, as well the Mushroom Records 25th birthday concert in Melbourne, Australia in 1998.

Also a favourite track among Stock Aitken Waterman enthusiasts, the song also featured on the 2005 UK compilation album Stock Aitken Waterman Gold, one of just two tracks included that were not released as a single in the UK.

Lyrics

Do you believe I'd let you down
Your jealous heart gave you the runaround
You couldn't see
That I would always be your friend

If you can look inside your heart
And understand what's tearing you apart
You gotta trust someone
Don't let hate get in the way

Just turn it into love
Turn it into love
And open up your heart and you'll
Never feel ashamed if you
Turn it, turn it, turn it into love

When all your other friends are gone
I'll still be here to help you carry on
If you have faith in me
Then I'll believe in you
You are the first thing on my mind
Do you believe I wouldn't have the time
I have to make you see
You can't push the pain on me

Just turn it into love (Repeat 4X)

If you can look inside your heart
And understand what's tearing you apart
You gotta trust someone
Don't let hate get in the way

Just turn it into love
Turn it into love
And open up your heart and you'll
Never feel ashamed if you
Turn it, turn it, turn it into love
