[Gm]Turn around, every now and the I get a l[F]ittle bit lonely and you're never
coming round
[Gm]Turn around, every now and the I get a l[F]ittle bit tired of listening to the
sound of my tears
[A#]Turn around, every now and the I get a l[G#]ittle bit nervous that the best of
all the years have gone by
[A#]Turn around, every now and then I get a [G#]little bit terrified and then I see
the fuckin' look in your eyes
[C#]Turn around, [F#]bright eyes, every now and then I fall apart
[C#]Turn around, [F#]bright eyes, oh fuckin' every now and then I fall a[F]part
And I [Dm]need you now tonig[A#]ht
And I fuckin' ne[C]ed you more than ev[F]er
And if you'll [Dm]only hold me tig[A#]ht
We'll be ho[C]lding on forev[F]er
And we'll o[Dm]nly be making it righ[A#]t
Cause we'll n[C]ever be wrong
[A#]Together we can take it to the e[C]nd of the line
Your lov[Dm]e is like a shadow on me a[G]ll of the time
Shit! I d[F]on't know what to do and I'm al[C]ways in the dark
We're li[Dm]ving in a powder keg and giv[G]ing off sparks
I really need you ton[F]ight
Forever'[C]s gonna start tonig[A#]ht
fuckin'ever's go[C]nna start tonight
[C]Once upon a time I was f[Dm]alling in love
But [A]now I'm fuckin' falling ap[A#]art[A]
[Gm]There's nothing I can say
A [C]total eclipse of the h[F]eart
oh Jesus, [C]Once upon a time there was l[Dm]ight in my life
But [A]now there's only love in [A#]the da[A]rk
[Gm]Nothing I can say
[C]A total eclipse of the h[F]eart
F Dm A# C x3
(Turn around, bright eyes) (Total eclipse of the...)
A total eclipse of the h[C#]e- aa[D#]art
F (played on the 5th,4th & 3rd string)
A total eclipse!

Don't think the additional swearing really does much for the song.
