"Don't Turn Away" as written by Bob Marlette and Daniel Ticotin....
Don't Turn Away
Under the sun I stand
Over the wings of fallen angels.
I can't believe the things you show me.
In my dreams I have you next to me.

Forever gone is love.
Out of control, I fall in trenches.
And if you leave me empty,
How will I design the world I need?

In your eyes you see it done:
Colors drain away like water.
Distance all but disappeared,
And nothing can be done.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over now.

And in your eyes I catch
A tiny glimpse of heaven calling.
You try to stay in touch, but can you
End what has no real beginning.

In your eyes you see it done:
Colors drained away like water.
Distance all but disappeared,
And nothing can be done.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over now.

And I walk away
And leave you right where you stand
I'll never regret all that I said to you.But you never turned away

You never turned away.
You never turned away.
You never turned away.
You never turned away.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over now.

And I walk away
And leave you right where you stand
I'll never regret all that I said to you.But you never turned away

You never turned away.
You never turned away.
You never turned away.
You never turned away.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over.

Don't; don't turn away.
Don't let it take you over.
You cannot give in.
Don't let it take you over now.

    General CommentI think this song is about a broken up couple, but even though they've broken up, the speaker is still in love with their partner. The partner, however, doesn't care about him, so they remain apart.
    The chorus' 'Don't turn away/Don't let it take you over" could mean he is slowly being filled with sorrow/anger/lust, but he is telling himself to not turn away and try to block it out, otherwise his feelings may take him over.

    General CommentI agree Zombie Prostiitute. That is the only meaning I can seem to get out of it, but everything about the song is great, he has a great voice and the song has a great beat.

    General CommentTo me this song seems to be about a guy, who is down because he can never seem to get the girl he really wants. She basically does not like him back, but he keeps telling himself to no turn away, and dont give up hope on the situation. He starts singing about trying to walk away and not having regret for the things he told her how he felt. He then continues to tell himself maybe there is still a chance to be with her, but he cant get angry or depressed over it even tho he wants to. He keeps telling himself not to turn away from his hope.

    General Commentalso towards the end he is seeing that she did have a feeling for him but something was in the way. It switches from turn away to her not ever turning away because he knows she saw something in him that she liked.
