"Turn My Head" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
Anyone, caught in your mystery
Keep it angry
Keep it whispy
I've fallen down
Drunk on your juices

Turn my head
Turn my head
It's aimed at you

Funky temple
Your dress is torn to shreds
Your eyes are crazy
I bowed to save my head and
I can't forget you
But I can't remember

Oh no
Turn my head
Turn my head
It's aimed at you

Baby, baby
We came to love you all day
These bastards are leavin'
Somebody's got to stay
Whatever we called you
It's just a name
Just a name

    Song MeaningIn a 1995 issue of SPIN magazine, it is revealed that "Turn My Head" is a song that Ed wrote at the time for his girlfriend.

    "Taylor joins Kowalczyk at the mike for reedy fragments of vocal harmony, and as the gentle strains of "Turn My Head," an unfinished love song to Kowalczyk's new girlfriend, float across the empty auditorium, scattered roadies and arena crew all pause in their tasks listen: "...caught in your mystery... turn my head, it's aimed at you..."

    The article ends with:

    "He laughs and tells me a line he's put into "Turn My Head" that his girlfriend didn't even know how to react to. "It's cool," he says, "because it sounds so serious, but I'm not sure it's even a sexual reference."

    SPIN: So what's the line?

    ED: "I've fallen down / Drunk on your juices."

    SPIN: And this is on the next album?

    ED: "Yeah! The band thinks it's one of our best songs ever!"

    So there it is. It's not about a striper (unless his girlfriend was a stripper), and it's not about God. It's a love song.

    General CommentNot that anyone is going to read this, but obviously the song is about romance..... he has mentioned this at his concerts. the line "drunk on your jucies" is very sexual and sacred. "what ever we called you, its just a name" sounds as if he is trying to raise her beyond just an earthly title..... into perhaps a godess postion. "keep it angry, keep it wispy" he is describing her femininity and her strength. "your dress is torn to shreds" makes me feel like he is expressing his desire to protect her. "funky temple", again sounds very sexual and sacred at the same time.

    Song MeaningIf you listen to Ed on the most recent live cd/dvd, he says, "This is for my lady" before playing the song.

    My InterpretationAnyone, caught in your mystery
    Keep it angry
    Keep it whispy
    I've fallen down
    Drunk on your juices................this is as if to say that anyone that is caught in your web IS CAUGHT and drunk on your juices means I was caught also

    Turn my head
    Turn my head
    It's aimed at you...........you caught me my love is aimed at you

    Funky temple
    Your dress is torn to shreads
    Your eyes are crazy
    I bowed to save my head and
    I can't forget you
    But I can't remember............your not perfect but I cant forget you, I loved you so much don't want to remember

    Turn my head
    Turn my head
    It's aimed at you

    Oh no
    We came to love you all day
    These bastards are leavin'....................you have to choose
    Somebody's got to stay...................everyone needs love
    Whatever we called you
    It's just a name
    Just a name ...............we all get mad and say things that we don't mean, and how I feel about you doesnt mean a thing unless you can reciprocate

    General CommentPeople... this is not about rape trust me!!! I know Ed... and Chad.. and Gracy... and Pat! We all went to the same high school we go way back! And Chad T is local I know his wife! Trust me this is about love. Yes it is a deep song, like all of there songs. But it is far from being a rape song! Knowing these guys for so long, like I do, you just know that rape is something they would not sing about.

    P.S. Please do not try to contact me to get you in contact with them. I will not respond.. they have families.. and they should be in tilted to there privacy.
