Total Eclipse Of The Heart Lyrics - Bonnie Tyler

Review The Song (14)



(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round

(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit tired
Of listening to the sound of my tears

(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit nervous
That the best of all the years have gone by

(Turn around)
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
And then I see the look in your eyes
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
sponsored links
Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
Every now and then
I fall apart

(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit restless
And I dream of something wild
(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit helpless
And I'm lying like a child in your arms
(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit angry
And I know I've got to get out and cry
(Turn around)
Every now and then
I get a little bit terrified
But then I see the look in your eyes
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
Every now and then
I fall apart
Turn around, bright eyes
Every now and then
I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
'Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
(All of the time)
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
(Forever's gonna start tonight)

Once upon a time
I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

[Instrumental Interlude]

(Turn Around, bright eyes)
(Turn Around, bright eyes)

(Turn around)
Every now and then
I know you'll never be the boy
You always wanted to be
(Turn around)
But every now and then
I know you'll always be the only boy
Who wanted me the way that I am
(Turn around)
Every now and then
I know there's no one in the universe
As magical and wondrous as you
(Turn around)
Every now and then
I know there's nothing any better
There's nothing that I just wouldn't do
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
Every now and then I fall apart

And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
'Cause we'll never be wrong
Together we can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time
(All of the time)
I don't know what to do
I'm always in the dark
Living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight
(Forever's gonna start tonight)

Once upon a time I was
I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart

Once upon a time there was light in my life
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
(Turn Around, bright eyes)
(Turn around)

Amazing love song | Reviewer: John | 12/2/12

It's a love song. The singer is terrified that the man she loves doesn't want her, oblivious to his trying to tell her he loves her. (Him telling her to "turn around".)

This song would make a great video (better than the official one), and a simple one: the singer is in a spotlight, moving around in a large, otherwise-bare room. Behind her is a man; he's in deep shadow and visible mostly as a silhouette. She moves as she sings...her movements are mostly aimless, but always leave him behind her. As he implores her to turn around, his hands come into the light. At the end of the song, at the last repetition of "turn around", she does...upon seeing he is there, she suddenly runs to him, leaps into his arms, and kisses him passionately as the screen fades to black.

Brilliant | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/22/10

What a brilliant song and another masterpiece by Jim Steinman. You can just imagine Meatloaf singing this song. The line "we're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks" is quintessential Jim Steinman, reminds me of Two Out of Three Ain't Bad and the line "but there ain't no coupe deville hiding in the bottom of a crackerjack box".

Dan Band | Reviewer: Mike | 7/2/10

If you want to hear an awesome version of this song, go to youtube and type in Dan Band. You will see Total Eclipse of the Heart listed. It's the best cover version of this song. I think it's even better than Bonnie Tyler's version.

missing lirycs... | Reviewer: Deathscythe | 5/4/09

Hello

Touching music | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/15/08

The first time I heard this song I was a teenager and I couldn't speak English, so I couldn't understand a single word. Nevertheless, I was really impressed by the music, and since then it has been one of my favorite songs.

Contrary to other songs, I'm happy to find that understanding its lyrics have improved a really great and touching song.

When I first heard that song on the radio on the way back in 1983 when I was a baby | Reviewer: Alyssa | 9/21/08

When I first heard that song on the radio on the way back in 1983 when I was a baby, My family and I lived in Sandpoint, Idaho, I think Bonnie Tyler has such a great voice, but, she's a great singer.

amazing | Reviewer: metal head | 9/15/07

It tells something about the amazing power this song
has when a true metal head like me (my favorite band
is Arch Enemy, watch it in YouTube) is deeply moved by this song and I listen to it all the time. It is just so great. And I'm a bit drunk while writing this review =)

Nostalgia | Reviewer: BJ | 8/21/07

I first heard this song in 1983 or 84. I loved it then and I love it now. I listened to it last for the first time in ages.... What a great song, lyrics, the way Tyler belts it out. This is one of those songs that will go down through the years as one of the great love songs.
