Song – Don’t Turn To Me Now

This song was inspired by one of the most significant events in my musical career which happened while I was living in Sydney between 1994 and 1999.

The event was a five day songwriting seminar that I spontaneously went to called Creative Options which was run by songwriter/musician Kerry Lambe.

This song was one of many songs written initially as an exercise in automatic writing and it’s the combination of a fully composed lyric and a full composed song arrangement marrying together in perfect harmony.


Don’t Turn To Me Now
(c) C. Stewart 1999

Looking at yourself in the mirror
Is what you see lies?
Thinking about yourself even clearer
Is something you despise?

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the time’s too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybody’s help along the way

Why is there so much loneliness
When there’s so many people here?
Are we all afraid of each other
Coz there’s no reason to be scared

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the time’s too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybody’s help along the way

Don’t you think it could’ve been better
With the choices that you made?
Coz all your life you were searching for pleasure
But all you got was pain

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the time’s too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybody’s help along the way

Help along the way
Help along the way


Even to this day I’m still not really sure what this song is about but I do know that it means something different to everyone who hears it.

Peace,

Corey 🙂
