A thing about you  
I pick up the phone, 
I'm dialing your number
While I pray you're at home, 
At home and alone
Cause I can't function on my own
And I'll never stop believingâ?¦

The reaping is done, 
You are the one
The radio is on but the sound is all gone
And I want to walk out in the sun
But lately that's been very hard to do

I've got a thing about you
And I don't really know what to do
Cause I've got a thing about you

I pick up the phone,
I'm dialing that number 
And my heart like a stone
Waits for the tone
Oh I can't make it on my own
And I'll never stop believingâ?¦

I know what is right and this is so wrong
Alone in my bed, better off on my own
The TV is on but the colors are gone
And lately you've been painting my world blue

I've got a thing about you
(I've got a thing about you)
And I don't really care what you do
I've got a thing about you
(I've got a thing about you)
Yeah, you

I've got a thing about you
I've got a thing about you

Lately you've been painting my world blue

I've got a thing about you
(I've got a thing about you)
And I don't really know what to do
I've got a thing about you
Hoping this story cuts through
(this story cuts through)
Yeah, I've got a thing about you
A thing about you

I've got a thing about you
I've got a thing about you
And I don't really know what to do

I've got a thing about youâ?¦
