Total Eclipse Of The Heart

Bonnie Tyler

 BmA
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
and you're never coming round.
 BmA
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit tired
of list'ning to the sound of my tears.
 DC
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
that the best of all the years have gone by.
 DC
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
and then I see the look in your eyes.
 FBb
 TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.
 FBb
 TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.

 BmA
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit restless
and I dream of something wild.
 BmA
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit helpless
and I'm lying like a child in your arms.
 DC
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit angry
and I know I've got to get out and cry.
 DC
 TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
but then I see the look in your eyes.
 FBb
 TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.
 FBbA
 TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.

 F#mDEA
      And I need you now tonight and I need you more than ever
 F#mDEA
      and if you only hold me tight we'll be holding on forever.
 F#mDE
      And we'll only be making it right 'cause we'll never be wrong.
 DE
      Together we can take it to the end of the line.
 F#mB
      Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time.
 AE/G#
      I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark.
 F#mB
      We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks.
 DBC#mD
      I really need you tonight, forever's gonna start tonight,
 E
      forever's gonna start tonight.

 DA/C#
    Once upon a time I was falling in love but now I'm only falling
apart.
 BmE
   There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart.
 AF#mC#m
   Once upon a time there was light in my life but now there's only love
 DA/C#
       the dark. 
 BmEA
   Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.

Musical break and the second verse just repeat the same as the first.

Song fades out on:
 AF#mDE
 Turn around, bright eyes                 

I might be off on the first section, but the rest is correct.
Oh, and it's words and music by Jim Steinman; Tyler only recorded it.

 Notes:
...I heard an annoying techno version of this song tonight at a dance
party, which inspired me to come home and try to do a decent-sounding
acoustic remake. the music was so loud I probably have permanent
hearing loss, so it's not my fault if these chords aren't right! :)
...lyrics nabbed from ftp.uwp.edu.
...pick the chords creatively during the verses, it sounds prettier.
...feel free to write me about corrections or enhancements, or if you're
a seattle-based musician looking for a band, or whatever!
...and the chord formations (or how I play them, anyhow):

Am x02210
G 320033
C x32010
 Bb113331
   D#     668881
D xx0232
Em 022000
A x02220
C/D x32013
