Glee: The Music, The Complete Season Two

By: Adele
Sung by: Holly Holliday
Place: The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion
Episode: A Night of Neglect

Turning Tables by Adele is featured in A Night of Neglect, the seventeenth episode of Season Two. It is sung at the benefit by Holly as she expresses how she is feeling about her relationship with Will and her plans to leave, which she has not told anyone about yet. Will still does not suspect that she is leaving after this song, and Holly has to tell him what it meant.

Lyrics

Holly:
Close enough to start a war,
All that I have is on the floor,
God only knows what we're fighting for,
All that I say, you always say more,
I can't keep up with your turning tables,
Under your thumb, I can't breathe,
So I won't let you close enough to hurt me,
No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me,
I cant give you, what you think you gave me,
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables,
To turning tables,

Under haunted skies I see you, ooh,
Where love is lost, your ghost is found,
I braved a hundred storms to leave you,
As hard as you try, no,
I will never be knocked down,
I can't keep up with your turning tables,
Under your thumb, I can't breathe,

So I won't let you close enough to hurt me,
No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me,
I can't give you what you think you gave me,
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables,
Turning tables,

Next time I'll be braver,
I'll be my own savior,
When the thunder calls for me,
Next time I'll be braver,
I'll be my own savior,
Standing on my own two feet,

I won't let you close enough to hurt me,
No, I won't ask you, you to just desert me,
I can't give you, what you think you gave me,
It's time to say goodbye to turning tables,
To turning tables,
Turning tables, yeah,
Turning, oh.

Trivia

  • Matthew Morrison apparently teared up many times while watching Gwyneth sing and perform this song, and had a hard time not crying.

Errors

  • Gwyneth Paltrow doesn't sing the correct lyrics in the chorus. She sings 'I won't ask you,' where it is actually 'I won't rescue.' This has upset a few of Adele's fans.
