"You Might Think" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
You might think I'm crazy
To hang around with you
Maybe you think I'm lucky
To have something to do

But I think that you're wild
Inside me is some child

You might think I'm foolish
Or maybe it's untrue
(You might think) you might think I'm crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you

You might think it's hysterical
But I know when you're weak
You think you're in the movies
And everything's so deep

But I think that you're wild
When you flash that fragile smile

You might think it's foolish
What you put me through
(You might think) you might think I'm crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you

And it was hard, so hard to take
There's no escape without a scrape

You kept it going 'till the sun fell down
You kept it going

Well you might think I'm delirious
The way I run you down
But somewhere sometimes, when you're curious
I'll be back around

Oh I think that you're wild
And so uniquely styled

You might think it's foolish
This chancy rendezvous
(You might think) you might think I'm crazy
(All I want) but all I want is you
All I want is you
All I want is you

    General CommentWe're all a little crazy sometimes. If a guy was chasing after me, I would think he was crazy too. Ric is a genius.

    General CommentI love this song so much! Perfectly sums up me and my girl, I swear if she says she's a boring person one more time...

    I showed her this song and, well, to say the least, she was happy...such a classic, and brilliant lyrics! One of the best from the Cars in my opinion!

    General CommentAdam Duritz of Counting Crows put out a solo album of covers with this on there a couple weeks ago, his version is amazing. I'd suggest everyone give it a listen. The Cars version is good too but I prefer Counting Crows style piano.

    General CommentI actually think that this song is written from the perspective of a guy who is in love with a girl in depression. The girl has problems with her self-esteem and self-confidence so she thinks that this guy is crazy for loving her. The girl has an emotional breakdown when this guy, her best friend as weel as her boyfriend, was with her. But they guy knows her so well that he can understand her feelings, she tries to escape from reality and she has some pessimistic even suicidal thoughts(ı know you're weaj/ you think youre in the movies/everythings so deep). But the guy doesn't leave her because he is in love with her, he makes the girl smile, a fragile smile. This guys affection for this girl is so much that although he is hurt while trying to help her(there is no escape without a scrape) he didn't leave her. The refrain part of the song focuses on the feeling's of the girl, she thinks that the boy is crazy for not leaving this problematic girl. The guy sees her to be perfect no matter what happens.
