Album: Glee: The Music, Volume 3 - Showstoppers
Glee: The Music, The Complete Season One
Glee: The Music, Best of Season One

By: Bonnie Tyler
Sung by: Finn Hudson, Jesse St. James, Noah Puckerman, and Rachel Berry with New Directions
Solos: Finn, Jesse, Puck, and Rachel
Place: The Choir Room and Ballet Studio
Episode: Bad Reputation

Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler is featured in Bad Reputation, the seventeenth episode of Season One. It is sung by Finn, Jesse, Puck, and Rachel.

In this episode, Rachel recreates and sings David Geddes' Run Joey Run, which she tries to use to get a 'bad reputation', using Jesse, Puck, and Finn (making it look like she had three boys fighting over her). However, this backfires as Jesse, Finn, and Puck become extremely angry with her and her project and argue with her before walking out. Rachel uses this song as a way to apologize to Jesse. Rachel, Finn, Puck and Jesse all have solos in this song; however, it mainly focuses on Rachel and Jesse's voices.

Lyrics

Finn:
Turn around

Rachel:
Every now and then I get a little bit lonely
And you're never coming round

Puck:
Turn around

Rachel:
Every now and then I get a little bit tired
of listening to the sound of my tears

Jesse:
Turn around

Rachel:
Every now and then I get a little bit nervous
that the best of all the years have gone by
Every now and then I get a little bit terrified
and then I see the look in your eyes

Finn:
Turn around bright eyes

Rachel:
Every now and then I fall apart

Finn:
Turn around bright eyes

Rachel:
Every now and then I fall apart

Rachel with New Directions harmonizing:
And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (New Directions: All of the time)
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight (New Directions: Forever's gonna start tonight)

Rachel:
Once upon a time I was falling in love
But now I'm only falling apart
There's nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
Once upon a time there was light in my life

Finn and Rachel:
But now there's only love in the dark
Nothing I can say
A total eclipse of the heart

Jesse:
Turn around bright eyes

Rachel:
Every now and then I fall apart

Jesse:
Turn around bright eyes

Rachel:
Ever now and then I fall apart

Rachel with New Directions harmonizing:
And I need you now tonight
And I need you more than ever
And if you'll only hold me tight
We'll be holding on forever
And we'll only be making it right
Cause we'll never be wrong together
We can take it to the end of the line
Your love is like a shadow on me all of the time (New Directions: All of the time)
I don't know what to do and I'm always in the dark
We're living in a powder keg and giving off sparks
I really need you tonight
Forever's gonna start tonight (New Directions: Forever's gonna start tonight)

Rachel:
Once upon a time I was falling in love

Jesse and Rachel:
But now I'm only falling apart
Nothing I can do
A total eclipse of the heart
A total eclipse of the heart

Rachel:
A total eclipse of the heart

Jesse:
Turn around bright eyes.
