"That Thing You Do!" as written by and Adam L. Schlesinger....
You, doin' that thing you do
Breaking my heart into a million pieces, like you always do
And you, don't mean to be cruel
You never even knew about the heartache
I've been goin' through

Well, I try and try to forget you girl
But it's just so hard to do
Every time you do that thing you do
And I, know all the games you play
And I'm gonna find a way to let you know that
You'll be mine someday

Cause we, could be happy, can't you see
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you,
And keep you here with me
'Cause I try and try to forget you girl
But it's just so hard to do
Every time you do that thing you do

I don't ask a lot girl but I know one thing's for sure
It's the love I haven't got girl
And I just can't take it anymore (whoa!)
Cause we, could be happy, can't you see
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you,
And keep you here with me

'Cause it hurts me so just to see you go
Around with someone new
And if I know you, you're doin' that thing
Every day, just doin' that thing
I can't take you doin' that thing you do

    General Commentthis song is definitely the best nfg cover version. its about him saying that woah, she blows his mind. its so fast and urgent sounding that the song is somehow over before it begins, cuz it moves so fast and is so great!

    General Commentit means that this guy is friends with this girl, but falls for her, and without her knowing she breaks his heart by not liking him back. and he knows she doesnt like him, and tries to stop his obsession, but he cant. :)

    General Commenti just like this song, no matter who plays it. It has such a genuine classic pop feeling that makes you happy. Everyone can relate, because everyones had a crush. It's great.
