"Turbo Lover" as written by and Glenn Raymond/halford Tipton....
You won't hear me,
But you'll feel me
Without warning, somethings dawning, listen.
Then within your senses,
You'll know you're defenseless
How your heart beats, when you run for cover
Your cant retreat I spy like no other.

Then we race together.
We can ride forever
Wrapped in horsepower, driving into fury
Changing gear I pull you tighter to me

I'm your turbo lover
Tell me there's no other
I'm your turbo lover
Better run for cover

We hold each other closer, as we shift to overdrive
And everything goes rushing by, with every nerve alive
We move so fast it seems as though we've taken to the sky
Love machines in harmony, we hear the engines cry.

I'm your turbo lover
Tell me there's no other
I'm your turbo lover
Better run for cover

On and on we're charging to the place so many seek
In perfect synchronicity of which so many speak
We feel so close to heaven in this roaring heavy load
And then in sheer abandonment, we shatter and explode.

I'm your turbo lover
Tell me there's no other
I'm your turbo lover
Better run for cover
I'm your turbo lover
Tell me there's no other
I'm your turbo lover
Better run for cover

    General CommentI know this is a bit of a wierd meaning, but to me it sounds like it's a about a pilot in a fighter jet with a missile locked onto him, and how he tries to escape it. Strange i know, but if u look at the lyrics they fit it pretty well.

    General Commentthe song could als be about shooting up heroin, if you look at it a little closer i think you will understand what it's saying in the song.i myself have never shot up and never will but i do know people that have and they agree it could be about shooting up. it fits in but, i can see it being about gay love too !!!!!! what do you think?

    My OpinionThe way I see the song is, Mr. Halford could be talking about sex (with men or women) and racing cars or motorcycles. Both are amazing (women and cars) and both can bring sexual excitement.

    General CommentI think this song is a play on words; it's about motorbikes, but it was written so people could also interpret it as being about sex.

    General CommentWhy's it nasty?

    Anyway, I heard this on the radio recently. Has a nice beat, and it's pretty good, as I recall...

    General CommentRacing cars as a metaphor for love, sex, or what not. Pretty straightforwrad. Cheesy but cool, and Halford is a pretty good singer, too.

    Muzzy: Well, some would disagree with with the "nasty" comment. Gays themselves, for example.

    General Commenti reckon that rob is referring to himself as a huge dildo. im sorry if you're offended,but i love rob myself, so i dont mean to offend any1! ps gay people are just as cool/normal as straight people, so get over it!
