About This Time I Know It's for Real

"This Time I Know It's for Real" is a song originally recorded by Donna Summer and released on February 13, 1989 as the first single from her album Another Place and Time. Like the rest of the album, the song was written and produced by the British Stock Aitken & Waterman team, though Summer also had a hand in writing this song, as well as three other songs on the album from which this single was released. The song was a worldwide smash success. It became Summer's biggest hit in the UK since the 1970s (during which time she had been the most popular female disco artist), reaching number three and spending a total of 14 weeks in the Top 75, longer than any of her other singles there. It also reached number 7 in both the US (where it was certified Gold) and Canada. It was her 14th and final US Top 10 hit as well as the last Top 40 hit of Summer's career. This was Summer's first US single to be released on Atlantic Records, a division of Warner Bros. Records. Since 1980 she had been signed to Geffen (also a division of Warner Bros.) but her work across Europe had always been distributed by Warner Bros.' main label. This would continue to be the case following her signing to Atlantic.

What would I have to do
To get you to notice me too
Do I
Stand in line
One of a million
Admiring eyes

Walk a tightrope way up high
Write your name across the sky

I'm going crazy just to let you know
You'd be amazed how much I love you so, baby
When I get my hands on you I won't let go
This time I know it's for real

Should I write or call your home
Shout it out with a megaphone
Radio, tv news
Got to find a way
To get the message to you

To say I love you with a neon sign
Anything to make you mine

I'm going crazy just to let you know
If I wait too long for you I might explode, oh baby
I've been around the block enough to know
This time I know it's for real

Ooo baby
This time, this time, this time, this time
Oh baby
This time, this time, oh baby

Walk a tightrope way up high
Write your name across the sky

I'm going crazy just to let you know
You'd be amazed how much I love you so, oh baby
When I get my hands on you I won't let go
This time I know it's for real

I'm going crazy just to let you know
If I wait too long for you I might explode, oh baby
I've been around the block enough to know
This time I know it's for real
