Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler


Total Eclipse Of The Heart - Bonnie Tyler

I always enjoy singing this song during "videoke hour" be it inour house, at the beach, at an outing or anywhere for that matter. Wherever I go, I got this song playing in my head, over and over and over again. I must have memorized the song lyrics... not really!

I just love singing the song for no particular reason. I love the high and fast note especially when you get to that part which says: "Your love is like a shadow all the time... I don't know what to do..."

Oh well, this is a love song after all. So I always try my best to sing it from the heart given the chance. This song taught me a lot of singing styles as well. I admit, I also admire the husky voice of Bonnie Tyler. I just admire singers who sing that way: Rod Steward, Michael Bolton, Bryan Adams, etc.

I almost forgot... one must have a back up in singing this song. However, our home made videoke only has one microphone. We really struggle in looking for a back up mic when I had this song on queue. Struggle as it may seem, when I sing this song, I had my mom or my sister or my aunt to sing the echoing part of "Turn around...". Well, they are my special singing partners. I wonder when would my aunt write here on the site. (Are you there? Yes, she's here, she helps me edit this site!)

It's really nice to look back at those moments. Now I'm wishing we had that portable, handy video camera to capture those moments and I could post it here ;-)

Here is the lyrics!
TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART

(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
