"Something About You" as written by and Donald T. Scholz....
Ooo, ooo
Ooo, ooo

When I was younger I thought I could stand on my own
It wasn't easy, I stood like a man made of stone
But there was something about you (I want you to know)
It brought a change over me (it's starting to show)
I've got this feeling inside
Got to have you, have you
Ain't no good to hide

It isn't easy to show
What I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy, I know
When you believe in a man like me

When I get angry I say things I don't want to say
I really mean it, I don't want to leave you this way
I couldn't help my reaction (I want you to know)
I lose control over you (I just want you to know)
I've got this feeling inside,
I got to have you, have you
Ain't no good to hide

It isn't easy to show
What I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy, I know
When you believe in a man like me

But there was something about you (I want you to know)
It brought a change over me (it's starting to show)
I've got this feeling inside,
Got to have you, have you,
Ain't no good to hide

It isn't easy to show
What I'm feeling inside, girl
It isn't easy, I know
To believe in a man like me, like me
Can't you see
I've gotta, gotta have you

But there was something about you
Yeah, there was something about you

    General CommentCan't beat the ghostly sorrowful moaning of the beginning - right before that guitar energy comes rushing in full force.

    This is one of my favorite rock tunes.

    General CommentThis is some classic Boston right here- The moaning at the beginning bridges that guitar part perfectly.

    General CommentIn my opinion, this sounds like the guy is friends with a girl. He's finding out that the feelings are becoming more and he's falling for her. After trying to hide his feelings, he finally tells her the truth.

    I can also see it about a guy meeting a girl and wanting to be with her.

    This is one of my favorite songs from these guys, especially the beginning.

    General CommentIt sounds to me like a guy meets a girl that totally rocks his world. He was afraid to show his true feelings, and still is. With her, he makes an attempt to change because she has qualities about her that he loves. He is willing to put in the effort for this one girl. He's willing to do anything to keep her, because she brought out the best in him.

    General CommentThis is one of those songs that I could see myself dedicating to a girlfriend or wife in the future on her favorite radio station. Being the shy and quiet type, I can relate to Delp's lyrics in this song. It has a pretty straightforward meaning; this girl (let's call her Amanda) doesn't even have to say anything around (let's call him David) - her mere presence is capable of bringing out the best of David and triggering a feeling he's never felt before deep within his heart. Though David struggles with his emotions, it just goes to show that, no matter how much of a "lady's man" reputation that's burdened on your shoulders, there will always be that one girl who can bring you to your knees.

    Song MeaningThis song, to me, is about a guy who is crazy about a girl but AWFUL at expressing his feelings. So he lashes out at her, gets angry & says things he really doesn't mean & then feels terrible for it. He's trying to make her understand that it's hard for him to express his feelings about her, & he's so sorry that he's hurt her with his anger, but it's the only emotion he can express.

    I'll always love this song, though. During a break (well, it was only 3 days) he heard this song on his way home & it caused him to call me crying & begging me to take him back. That was years ago & now we're gonna be married =]

    THANK YOU, BOSTON!!!
