"Turn Your Back on Me" as written by and Greg/gurewitz Graffin....
I've been searching for so long
Now the search party is gone
Won't somebody tell me what the hell went wrong
We started out so strong

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care
So turn your back on me

Come on turn your back on me
To survive turn your back on me
We're the same as far as I can see
So come on turn your back on me

If I could I would stand outside myself
And pretend that I was looking back at somebody else
If I could do it again
Would I merely defend it all to the end?
Or do the ends justify themselves?

I never wanted to hurt you
I didn't plan to desert you
I couldn't possibly express how much I care
So turn your back on me

Come on turn your back on me
To survive turn your back on me
We're the same as far as I can see
So come on turn your back on me

    My InterpretationHe left someone, and is saying that it's ok for them to stop loving him.

    I don't think it was a romantic relationship, because then it's just really egotistical. Instead I think it's parent - child. Probably a song that many older punks can relate to. Their lives have led them away from their kids and for their kids to move on, they have to forget about him.
