The lyrics of “I Turn to You” are an ode from the narrator to a person who helps them find the proverbial light in the rain when she is lost or losing ground. The single is written with the theme of thanking a parental figure (her mother) (as evidenced by the music video produced for Aguilera’s version.) However, the song’s lyrics are ambiguous enough to where the lyrics can apply to a lover, a friend, or another family member.
The song was re-written in Spanish, and titled “Por Siempre Tú” (English: Forever You), for Aguilera’s first Spanish-language album, Mi Reflejo.
The identity of the director of the videos for “I Turn to You” and “Por siempre tú” remains somewhat of a mystery. At the time of the videos’ release, MTV had the director listed as Rupert C. Almont. However, the inlay for the DVD Deluxe Editon of Keeps Gettin’ Better - A Decade of Hits lists the director as Richard C. Allen. It is likely that both are simply pseudonyms for top director Joseph Kahn, as it was Kahn who appeared as director on the episode of Making the Video that chronicled the making of this music video.
