George Jones – I Turn To You lyrics

Rivers turn to oceans and flow onto the sea
Embers turn to ashes and loves a memory
Rain turns to rainbows and grey skies to to blue
But when the world turns on me I turn to you.

A thirsty man needs water, a bluebird need the sky
A man needs his woman or he'll wither up and die
Roses need sunshine, violets need the dew
But not half as much as I need you.

Deep in my soul and always on my mind
Forever in my heart you're the light that shines
Someone to hold when no one else will do
When the world turns on me I turn to you.

When the world turns on me I turn to you...
