"Picture This" as written by and Deborah Harry Jimmy Destri....
All I want is a room with a view
A sight worth seeing, a vision of you
All I want is a room with view, oh-oh
I will give you my finest hour
The one I spent watching you shower
I will give you my finest hour, oh yeah

All I want is a photo in my wallet
A small remembrance of something more solid
All I want is a picture of you

Picture this, a day in December
Picture this, freezing cold weather
You got clouds on your lids and you'd be on the skids
If it weren't for your job at the garage
If you could only oh-oh
Picture this, a sky full of thunder
Picture this, my telephone number
One and one is what I'm telling you, oh yeah

All I want is 20-20 vision
A total portrait with no omissions
All I want is a vision of you, oh-oh
If you can picture this, a day in December
Picture this, freezing cold weather
You got clouds on your lids and you'd be on the skids
If it weren't for your job at the garage
If you could only oh-oh
Picture this, a sky full of thunder
Picture this, my telephone number
One and one is what I'm telling you
Get a pocket computer
Try to do what you used to do yeah

    General CommentI think she moved in with a guy, but he's not that serious about the relationship, then she talks about how they met - I'm guessing, great song!

    General CommentI think this song is about seeing a guy around and liking him so then she creates a personality for him (he works at the garage), scenes when they are going out (the day in december) and gibing him her number (picture this my telephone number)

    But then i am probably wrong. I usually am!!

    General CommentJust one of the catchiest, poppiest songs ever written. Heavenly and addictive. 'Picture this, a sky full of thunder/Picture this, my telephone number' is just a wonderful juxtaposition. Lovely, lovely, lovely.

    General CommentAgree completely.

    The line
    " If it weren't for your job at the garage... If you could only, oohh, oh ... Picture this"
    It's just orgasmic.
    "Picture this a sky full of thunder
    Picture this my telephone number"
    Oh yeah, I think I'll have another listening right now quite loud.

    General CommentHoly crap.
    That's the best I can put my opinion of this song.

    "All I want is a picture of you
    Picture this a day in December
    Picture this freezing cold weather
    You got clouds on your lids and you'd be on the skids
    If it weren't for your job at the garage
    If you could only, oohh, oh"

    ...is just so powerful and emotive.

    and

    "Picture this a sky full of thunder
    Picture this my telephone number"

    ...what a pickup line!
