"The Turnaround" as written by Mark O. Everett, Jeffrey Scott Lyster and Kelley Logsdon....
Another morning in the evening
Times still on the floor
And I don’t even know her name
Or if she lives here
Had enough but I want more
I don’t remember how I got here
And how long it’s been now
A day or two, maybe more

On the whole must remains
Never wanted anyway
I always bit the hand that beat me
And they rode me off
It’s easy not to care

Never trusted anyone
Don’t see why I should now
Fade some blinking never fair

You’re all gonna be sorry when I’ll leave town
And get it together, for the turnaround

6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street
6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street
6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street
6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street
6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street
6 bucks in my pocket and these shoes on my feet
The first step is out the door and onto the street

    My OpinionMy comment doesn't explain the meaning of this song, just what it means to me. If I've misheard or misinterpreted it, please forgive me. It's just my comment.

    Written by the greatest living songwriter (IMHO), this beautiful song perfectly describes parts of my life. Thanks, E, for helping me to turn my life around and make it beautiful. No exaggeration. You were a big part of saving me.

    Home to Home I spent the days
    Never wanted anywhere
    I always bit the hand that beat me
    And they wrote me off
    It was easy not to care

    It doesn't matter how much they beat and abuse us in our sarcastically named "care homes", some survive it and make the turnaround. I pray for their prey.

    The first step is out the door and onto the street. I still don't have the six bucks in my pocket, but I'll get there with E's help.
