What does it mean to be turned around? I read that “to be turned around” means to be confused and lost, but in the song "I Won't Back Down" does this expression means to be deceived? "Gonna stand my ground, won't be turned around And I'll keep this world from draggin' me down Gonna stand my ground and I won't back down"

Hi Josiane, In this context “turned around” means “turned in the opposite direction”, so that they are sent away from where they planned on going. So the idea is that the singer is promising that they will not allow themselves to be sent away from their goal.
