It’s the middle of the day and the worst is yet to come. You twisted your ankle and you’re stuck in traffic, late for a midday meeting. The cool wind coming through the window reminds you that you left your jacket in the office. But you are in luck: a yellow cab is offering a ride. You get in, and as the bus goes by, you spot your jacket on the windshield.

(Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit lonely And you're never coming 'round (Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit tired Of listening to the sound of my tears (Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit nervous That the best of all the years have gone by (Turn around) Every now and then I get a little bit terrified And then I see the look in your eyes (Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart (Turn around, 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 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 (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 (Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart (Turn around, bright eyes) Every now and then I fall apart And I need you now tonight (and I need you now) And I need you more than ever And if you only hold me tight (if you only) We'll be holding on forever And we'll only be making it right (and we'll never) '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 (all of the time) I don't know what to do, 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 say A total eclipse of the heart A total eclipse of the heart A total eclipse of the heart Turn around, bright eyes

en.wikipedia.org)French's first recording of "Total Eclipse of the Heart", made with John Springate of the Glitter Band producing, came to the attention of Mike Stock and Matt Aitken who produced their own recording of the song by French and it was this version which appeared on the UK chart dated 15 October 1994 at No. 54. French would recall: "I just thought oh well that was great...I've [worked with] Mike Stock and Matt Aitken and it was a dream come true...we tried and I had a great time...And then about two months later I had a call out of the blue from Mike saying the buzz will not die down on this track so we're going to re-record the beginning...and we're going to re-release it at the beginning of 1995."
