You've been down, I've been too, you've been used, I've been there too
But I never ever used someone for personal gains, no no no
Understand I'm in need, we're alone and sisters from the scene
See me standing here before you, oh with open hands, oh, oho, so

Chorus:
Don't turn your back (don't turn your back)
Don't turn your back (don't turn your back)
There'll be those changes that I know I'll have to face
Don't turn your back (don't turn your back)
Don't turn your back (don't turn your back)
Manipulator maybe we can form a pact

Shining car, I've had them too, stereo and colour TV too
Had a man who loved me more than anything, more than anything
Live my life to your laws, I'm not complaining, but now I'm out the door
We used to talk and laugh together, oh you and I, so, so

chorus

You phased me out without a warning, you knew that I'll be back and calling
Praying you forgive and help me, manipulator your a trickster

Shining car, I've had them too, stereo and colour TV too
Had a man who loved me more than anything, more than anything
Live my life to your laws, I'm not complaining, but now I'm out the door
We used to talk and laugh together, oh you and I, so, so

chorus repeats 2x...

(Instrumental break)

chorus

Don't you turn your back on me, don't you turn your back (repeats 3x)
Don't you turn your back on me, no

Don't you turn your back on me, don't you turn your back (repeats 4x)
No
