"One Thing" as written by Savan Harish Kotecha, Rami Yacoub and Carl Anthony Falk....
I've tried playing it cool
But when I'm looking at you
I can’t ever be brave
'Cause you make my heart race

Shot me out of the sky
You're my kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe

Something’s gotta give now
'Cause I’m dying just to make you see
That I need you here with me now
'Cause you've got that one thing

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

Now I'm climbing the walls
But you don't notice at all
That I'm going out of my mind
All day and all night

Something’s gotta give now
'Cause I'm dying just to know your name
And I need you here with me now
'Cause you've got that one thing

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing

So get out, get out, get out of my mind
And come on, come into my life
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

You've got that one thing

Get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing

So get out, get out, get out of my mind
And come on, come into my life
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

    Song MeaningThat "one thing" is something a girl has, guys want it, and they can't get it out of their heads.

    My OpinionNot really a fan of the band (well, I dislike their crazed fans more lol), but I have to admit this song is pretty catchy and I quite like it.

    Obvious meaning is obvious. I just love the "I don't, I don't, don't know what it is" line. Sometimes you just like someone really intensely for whatever reason. It might not be their looks or their personality in particular, but just someTHING about them that is completely awesome and you can't put your finger on it :) Something that's unique to that person. I can definitely relate to that!

    General CommentAh, it's the quintessential crush song. It's the feeling of just being so taken by someone that there's nothing you can do but watch as they walk by and wonder if they'll ever feel that way about you.

    Song MeaningI think the song is about a boy being crazy over a girl but he can't figure out y , hence the 'you've got that one thing' line. It's also about the way Harry feels about t-swift. Why Harry. Why. Do. You. Have. To. Like. Her

    General Comment"So, get out, get out, get out of my head"

    Pretty much describes my feelings towards this irritating, Backstreet Boys song rip-off.
