"That Thing You Do!" as written by and Adam L. Schlesinger....
You doing 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 been going 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

I know all the games you play
And I'm gonna find a way to make you know that
You'll be mine someday
Cuz we would be happy
Can't you see?
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
And keep you here with me

Cuz 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
The love, I haven't got, girl
And I just can't take it anymore

Cuz we would be happy
Can't you see?
If you'd only let me be the one to hold you
And keep you here with me

Cuz it hurts me so just to see you go
Around with someone new
And if I know you, you're doing that thing
Everyday, just doing that thing
I can't take you doing that thing you do
