total eclipse (from memory, so it might be a little off....).

Bm                                     A
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
     and you're never coming round.
Bm                                     A
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit tired
     of list'ning to the sound of my tears.
D                                      C
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
     that the best of all the years have gone by.
D                                      C
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
     and then I see the look in your eyes.
F                       Bb
TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.
F                       Bb
TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.

Bm                                     A
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit restless
         and I dream of something wild.
Bm                                     A
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit helpless
     and I'm lying like a child in your arms.
D                                      C
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit angry
     and I know I've got to get out and cry.
D                                      C
TURN AROUND Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
     but then I see the look in your eyes.
F                        Bb
TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.
F                        Bb                            A
TURN AROUND, BRIGHT EYES Every now and then I fall apart.

            F#m                 D        E                  A
      And I need you now tonight and I need you more than ever
                 F#m            D              E             A
      and if you only hold me tight we'll be holding on forever.
                F#m                 D                  E
      And we'll only be making it right 'cause we'll never be wrong.
      D                              E
      Together we can take it to the end of the line.
           F#m                          B
      Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time.
        A                             E/G#
      I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark.
            F#m                         B
      We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks.
                        D           B             C#m     D
      I really need you tonight, forever's gonna start tonight,
         E
      forever's gonna start tonight.

   A                      F#m                  C#m
D   A/C#
   Once upon a time I was falling in love but now I'm only falling
apart.
           Bm                 E
   There's nothing I can do, a total eclipse of the heart.
    A                F#m                D          E
   A                          F#m                   C#m
   Once upon a time there was light in my life but now there's only love
in
           D    A/C#
       the dark.
   Bm                  E                    A
   Nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the heart.


Musical break and the second verse just repeat the same as the first.

Song fades out on:
A           F#m            D            E
Turn around, bright eyes

 I might be off on the first section, but the rest is correct.
Oh, and it's words and music by Jim Steinman; Tyler only recorded it.

Notes:
...I heard an annoying techno version of this song tonight at a dance 
   party, which inspired me to come home and try to do a decent-sounding
   acoustic remake.  the music was so loud I probably have permanent
   hearing loss, so it's not my fault if these chords aren't right!  :)
...lyrics nabbed from ftp.uwp.edu.
...pick the chords creatively during the verses, it sounds prettier.
...feel free to write me about corrections or enhancements, or if you're
   a seattle-based musician looking for a band, or whatever!
...and the chord formations (or how I play them, anyhow):

   Am	  x02210
   G	  320033
   C	  x32010
   F	  133211
   Bb	  113331
   D#	  668881
   D	  xx0232
   Em	  022000
   A	  x02220
   C/D    x32013
