Bonnie Tyler (echte naam: Gaynor Hopkins) werd geboren in Skewen in Wales en komt uit een gezin van zes kinderen.

In 1975 neemt ze haar eerste liedje op maar dat wordt geen succes. Haar eerste hit in Nederland is Lost In France, dat in 1977 tot de 24e plaats komt. De opvolger van dat nummer, It's A Heartache, haalt in 1978 de derde plaats en zou haar grootste hit worden. Het eveneens zeer bekende Total Eclipse Of The Heart komt in 1983 niet hoger dan 24. In 1984 en 1995 heeft ze nog een vierde en een vijfde hit in Nederland (A Rockin' Good Way, samen met Shakin' Stevens en Making Love (Out Of Nothing At All).

Songtekst

Turnaround, Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round
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 wanted to be
Turnaround,
But 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 wondrous as you
Turnaround,
Every now and then I know there's nothing any better
And there's nothing that 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
Well 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
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
