"Thing For You" as written by Brian Howes, Austin Winkler and Ross Hanson....
Now that it's morning,
Where do you want to go from here?
Well now that we're sober,
Do you think of me more clear?
Whoa now, now that your head is right,
Did you dig last night?
It keeps playing in my mind.

Cause girl I gotta thing for you.
And I know it's kinda crazy,
Cause I know that you have someone else,
Wondering where you were last night.

But oh yeah now, don't think we're through,
I gotta thing for you

Well now that you're home,
Will he be the first thing that you see?
I know you compare us,
How does he match up next to me?

No, now, now that your head is right,
Did you dig last night?
It keeps playing in my mind.

Cause girl I gotta thing for you.
And I know it's kinda crazy,
Cause I know that you have someone else,
Wondering where you were last night.

And I know the night was hazy,
But I still remember waking up and kissing your head one more time,
But oh yeah now, don't think we're through,
I gotta thing for you

Well I remember laying your head down,
I remember loving our love sounds.

I gotta thing for you.
An I know the night is crazy,
But I still remember waking up and kissing your head one more time,
I gotta thing for you.
An I know the night was hazy,
But I still remember waking up,
An kissing your head one more time.
Ooh yeah now, don't think we're through,
I gotta thing for you...

    General CommentSurprised there haven't been more comments on this song. It is an amazing song, and written well.

    I think its pretty self explanatory. He was at a party or something the night before and got with this girl that he has had some feelings for. This girl was already with somebody at the time, but they got drunk and slept together. He is singing this as he is waking up in the morning next to her.

    He admits to knowing she has someone else, but he is admitting to her how he feels and wants her to compare the two of them becaus ehe knows he can be better for this girl.

    General CommentI had posted them from a different version of them than what was on the album. But because of the site changes... it took a while for them to get approved. I have changed them.

    General Commenti gotta say i love hinder for the simple fact that they have such a different sound from all the other bands. i caint wait to see them live!!

    this song as well as 'Lips of an Angel' remind me of a relationship i had (if u can call it a relationship lol). She was cheating on her boyfriend with me and i liked her so much and she would always tell me how much better i am for her. the things he talks about in the song kind of remind me of everything.

    Song MeaningSo he was a one night stand with someone who has a boyfriend. Now that its happened he wants it to be more than that and cant stop thinking about her. he knows she has a bf but wants to know if this guy is as good as him. "how does he match up next to me" He wants more and cant stop thinking about her hence has a thing for her.

    General CommentIn My Opinion this should have been the Prequel to Lips of an Angel because they both have the same meaning its about cheating. If you think about it Lips of an Angel is this girl calling him and he is just so excited to hear from her again and as he said "Dont think ere through" and her calling him back is them not being through thats just my opinion

    General Commentlips of an angel was a song about two people who were together once and they're still in love but they're with new people now- he does not say he's cheating he just says she makes it really hard not to. in other words he loves her but he's with another girl, if he got the chance however, he would be with the other girl. this is more about a drunken one night stand, but the most beautiful one ever written about haha, obviously he's talking about being with a woman who isn't single- he has a "thing" for her, but she has someone else "wondering where she was last night."
    "i know you'll compare us, how does he match up next to me?" will you choose me over him, or now that you're head's clear was it meaningless? it wasn't for him "i don't think we're through."
