All-4-One

"I Turn to You" is a song written by Diane Warren in 1996. The original version of the song was recorded that year by R&B quartet All-4-One for the soundtrack album to the Warner Bros. film Space Jam.

In 1998, American pop singer Christina Aguilera recorded a cover version, produced by Guy Roche, for her self-titled debut album. The single peaked at number three on the Billboard Hot 100 for 4 weeks, becoming Aguilera's fourth top-ten hit. In 2008, "I Turn To You" was covered by Nina, a Filipino pop/R&B singer, for her album Nina Sings the Hits of Diane Warren.

BackgroundEdit

The lyrics of "I Turn to You" are an ode from the narrator to a person who helps them find the proverbial light in the rain when she is lost or losing ground.

The single is written with the theme of thanking a parental figure (her mother) (as evidenced, at least, by the music video produced for Aguilera's version).

However, the song's lyrics are general enough that they could apply to a lover, a friend, or another family member.

LyricsEdit

Yeah, yeah, mm hm baby yeah

When I'm lost, in the rain

In your eyes I know I'll find the light

To light my way

And when I'm scared, losing ground

When my world is going crazy, you can turn it all around, oh yeah

And when I'm down you're there, to push me to the top, girl

You're always there giving me all you've got

[Chorus]

For a shield, from the storm

For a friend, for a love to keep me safe and warm

I turn to you

For the strength, to be strong

For the will to carry on

For everything you do, for everything that's true

I turn to you

When I lose, the will to win

I just reach for you, and I could reach the sky again

I can do, anything

Cause your love is so amazing

Cause your love aspires me, yes it does

And when I need a friend, you're always on my side

Giving me faith, taking me through the night

[Chorus]

For the arms to be my shelter through all the rain

For truth that will never change

For someone to lean on

For a heart I can rely on through anything

For that one who, I can run to

For a shield, from the storm

For a friend, for a love to keep me safe and warm

I turn to you

For the strength, to be strong

For the will to carry on

For everything you do, for everything that's true

[Chorus]

I turn to you
