Is it my turn to wish you were lying here?
I tend to dream you when I'm not sleeping
Is it my turn to fictionalize my world?
Or even imagine your emotions, tell myself anything
Is it my turn to hold you by your hands?
Tell you I love you and you not hear me
Is it my turn to totally understand?
To watch you walk out of my life and not do a damn thing

If I have to give away the feeling that I feel
If I have to sacrifice, oh, whatever babe, whatever, baby
If I have to take apart all that I am
Is there anything that I would not do?
'Cause inside I'd die without you, yeah, baby
'Cause inside I'd die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you

Oh, I apologize for all the things I've done
But now I'm underwater and I'm drowning
Is it my turn to be the one to cry?
Isn't it amazing how some things completely turn around?
So take every little piece of my heart
Yeah, take every little piece of my soul
Yeah, take every little bitty piece of my mind
'Cause if you're gone inside I'd die without you

If I have to give away the feeling that I feel
If I have to sacrifice, oh, whatever babe, whatever, baby
If I have to take apart all that I am
Is there anything that I would not do?
'Cause inside I'd die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you, die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you, die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you, die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you, die without you
'Cause inside I'd die without you, die without you

    General CommentI think this song portrays a very common incident in love: why do we love those who do not love us and not love those who love us dearly? Why do we haeve to suffer loving someone and only when we give up, or when another door of happiness opens and end our miserable state of heart, the old love who hardly felt our existence wakes up in tears and asks us back?
    A couple of years ago, my boyfriend got me the CD of PM Dawn and we switched off the room's lights and lied beside each other and he said before playing the song, this is my song to you. I never understood why he said that. I think it was his way of telling me he is finally giving in.. Anyways, I think then was not the right time for the dedication since I was madly deeply crazily devoted to him. Now is the time and yes, seems like it is HIS turn not mine anymore.

    General Commentdefinitely one of the most moving songs in recent memory. he loves a girl that no longer loves him back. BUT..here's the catch. the tables used to be turned...earlier in their relationship she loved him but for whatever reason he no longer loved her back. that's why he repeats the words "is it my turn":

    "Is it my turn to wish you were lying here."
    "Is it my turn to fictionalize my world"
    "Is it my turn to hold you by your hands, tell you I love you and you not hear me"
    "Is it my turn to totally understand"

    in other words, is it now his turn to be in the same situation that she was in.

    and finally the words "isn't it amazing how some things completely turn around"...he is noting the irony of how the tables used to be turned, and now he is the one heartbroken by her.

    what can you say, love can be fickle.....

    General CommentThe song is quite simple to understand - it's based off the movie Boomerang in which Eddie Murphy is a player who falls in love with Halle Berry who treats him exactly the same as he has treated the women in his past. So now it's 'his turn' to feel how the women he had mistreated had felt.

    General Commentthis song brings back great memories but is extremely sad at the same time knowing I can never re-live those moments with that person again. I know that I am better off but the times were really special to me none-the-less.
