Dear all,

I am confused about a word "turnaround" in the song which is "Total eclipse of the heart" by Bonnie Tyler.

The lyrics below:

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming around

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears

......

I enjoy this song and want to know more about this song.

But when I looked up the Chinese lyrics on the web site, I found out most of the Chinese translation about this song translated the word "turnaround" into "走開 go away".

I don't think "turnaround" in this song "total eclipse of the heart" means "go away".

I thought it might be "a complete change from a bad situation to a good one".

Can someone help me that?

It's great that someone have the background of this song.

Thank you!

I do not know the song, but "turnaround" could be read in a couple of different ways.
A "turnaround" can refer to a situation that changes, usually from bad to good.
Or it could be a command: turn around (and go away).

Dear Doctor D,

Thank you for the answer of my question.

Yes, it's.
I get confused just because this word "turnaround" has more than one meaning, and there are two of them just reverse to each other.

Might you listen to this song and help me to figure it out?

Thank you very much.

Excuse me, I forgot to post the original lyrics of the song, may I add it below:

TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART (Bonnie Tyler )

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit lonely and you're never coming around

Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit tired of listening to the sound of my tears
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit nervous that the best of all the years have gone by
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified and then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

Turnaround bright eyes, Every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit restless and I dream of something wild
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit helpless and I'm lying like a child in your arms
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit angry and I know I've got to get out and cry
Turnaround, every now and then I get a little bit terrified but then I see the look in your eyes
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart

Turnaround 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'll 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
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

Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround bright eyes
Turnaround, every now and then I know you'll never be the boy you always you wanted to be
Turnaround, every now and then I know you'll always be the only boy who wanted me the way that I am
Turnaround, every now and then I know there's no one in the universe as magical and wonderous as you
Turnaround, every now and then I know there's nothing any better and there's nothing I just wouldn't do
Turnaround bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
Turnaround 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'll 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
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
