"Turn" as written by Andrew Cairns, Fyfe Ewing and Michael Robert Mckeegan....
I want to see what people saw
I want to feel like I felt before
I want to see the kingdom come
I want to feel forever young
I want to sing
To sing my song
I want to live in a world where I belong
I want to live
I will survive
And I believe that it won't be very long

If we turn, turn, turn, turn, turn
Then we might learn
So where's the stars?
Up in the sky
And what's the moon?
A big balloon
We'll never know unless we grow
There's so much world outside the door

I want to sing
To sing my song
I want to live in a world where I'll be strong
I want to live
I will survive
And I believe that it won't be very long

If we turn, turn, turn, turn
And if we turn, turn, turn, turn
Then we might learn
Turn, turn, turn, turn
Turn, turn, turn
And if we turn, turn, turn, turn
Then we might learn
Learn to turn

    General CommentFor me, this song is about taking it upon ourselves to make the world better, even in the tiniest of ways.

    General Commentyeah i agree, about achieving your goals and dreams with lines like "so wheres the stars?" and the answer: "up in the sky" its simple but true, its hard to get to where u want to go but its possible.
    if u ever go see travis then this one of their best live songs.

    General Commenti might not be thinking outside the box here, but i get the impression it's talking about there being so much to learn and too little time to learn it in - the particular verse that gives that impression is
    So where's the stars ?
    Up in the sky
    And what's the moon ?
    A big balloon
    We'll never know unless we grow
    There's so much world outside the door
    that's how i interpret it anyway

    General CommentI shall say, its a complete"Take away" song. It takes u to a trip. The term "turn" here talks of the way we should face the turning situations in life, its very uplifting.The lyrics...i love the way he stresses on "I" part, repitively speak about the self..self oriented wishes...
    Lovely song, i wanna thank the person who suggested me this song !

    General CommentSurely "turn" means "repent!"

    You're not going to see the Kingdom Come unless you repent!

    You want to feel forever young? eternal life!

    In a World where you belong? Heaven!

    Matthew 3:2 and 4:17 - Repent! for the Kingdom of Heaven is near!

    General Commenti think its just about living, traveling and learning about this world we live in.
