"Turn Your Face" as written by Priscilla Renea and Steve (gb) Mac....
In my memory, all the small things, like daggers in my mind
In my memory, while my head bleeds, the words I'll never find
That I always meant to say to you I can't

Cause you turned your face, and now I can't feel you anymore
Turn your face, so now I can't see you anymore
Walk away until you're not standing at my door
Turn your face, walk away and stay

Turn your face, hmm oh

In my memory, I was hurting, long before we met, oh
In my memory, there's still burning, fingerprints you left
And I'll always meant to say to you I can't

So just turn your face, until I can't see you anymore
Turn your face, until I can't see you anymore
Walk away until you're not standing at my door
Turn your face, walk away and stay

Turn your face

Each time I take you back
You bring one thousand cracks
And I accept them, like a fool oh

So now what's your excuse
What do we have to lose
Since I'm already losing you

So hard to face, that I can't feel you anymore
Hard to face, that I can't see you anymore
So walk away, until you're not standing at my door
Turn your face, walk away, and stay

Turn your face
Turn your face, and stay
Turn your face

    My InterpretationMy interpretation of this song is that it's the story of a relationship that isn't working because the guy isn't being there for her when she needs him. He has "turned his face" from her problems. The girl probably knew this would happen eventually, and she always wanted to tell him that it wasn't going to work out, but she never got the courage until he turned his back to her. They might've tried being in a relationship with each other before, and every time something went wrong, so when he came back, things just got worse because he brought "one thousand cracks" to their trust and relationship. Now she's telling him to get out and get away from her because she finally realizes they won't work. I don't know, I could be completely wrong, but that's what I think

    My InterpretationI think this song is about an emotionally damaging on-off relationship, and the girl is finally making the decision to end the relationship, therefore asking him to "turn your face and walk away".

    It seems to me that it is hard for the girl to break up with the guy as she says "turn your face, walk away and stay". Seems like she is a bit confused about what she wants, hence the reason why she keeps taking him back even though she knows that he'll just bring "a thousand cracks"

    The line where they sing "In my memory, I was hurting, long before we met" says to me that she was broken and damaged from a previous relationship and she just wants to love and trust the guy she is with now, but knows that she can't and they can't be together.

    This girl and guy break up and she lets him back into her life again and again, because she wants to believe that he has changed, even though she knows that he hasn't. I think this time she is telling him to leave and walk away, because she knows that their relationship just won't work.

    Sorry if I'm wrong, just my opinion ...
