"The Very Thing" as written by Sara A. Hickman and Sandy Abernethy....
The very thing that makes you happy
Makes me want to fight
The very thing that makes you tired
Keeps me up all night

The very thing that reassures you
Makes me turn and run in fright
It's the very thing, it's the very thing
It's the very thing that makes me love you

The very thing that makes us happy
Is what's tearing us apart
The very place where we are ending
Is where I've got to start

To put a positive rotation
To this spinning in my heart
It's the very thing, oh, it's the very thing
It's the very thing that makes me love you

The difference between you and me
Is you've been where I'm trying to be
If I could open my eyes then I would see
There's not that big a difference
No, there's not that big a difference between you and me

I've lost my place and I've lost the time
I've lost my reason and I've lost my rhyme
I've lost count of what is and isn't mine
It's a sad, sad tale to tell and if I'm boring you, then what the hell

'Cause the very thing that interests me
Well, it's boring you to tears
The very thing that's healing me
Is stirring up your fears

But can you wait as I learn now
What you have known for years
It's the very thing, oh, it's the very thing
It's the very thing that makes me love you

Oh, it's the very thing
Oh, it's the very thing
It's the very thing that makes me love you

La, la, la
La, la, la
La, la, la
