"Think About Me" as written by and John Rzeznik....
You take a lot of chances with your feelings
No one really knows what you feel
And fiction is the only way you're dealin'
You turn your pretty head if it gets real

Oh you (oh you)
You take it so slowly
And your eyes (and your eyes) look so lonely
But it's only when you think about me
Oh yeah
When you think about me
Think about me

And I got head don't let me sleep
And you got secret I can't keep
You see a little stranger in your mirror
The girl you never knew is what you fear

Oh you (oh you)
You take it so slowly
And your eyes (and your eyes) look so lonely
But it's only when you think about me
Oh yeah
When you think about me
Think about me

All you want is something I can't be

All you want from me is what you need
And I'm saying

Oh you
You take it so slowly
And your eyes (and your eyes)
Look so lonely
But it's only (but it's only)

Oh you (oh you)
You take it so slowly
Now it's only (now it's only)
'bout me
When you think about me
Think about me
Oh when you think about me
Oh yeah
When you think about me
Oh yeah
Think about me
Yeah when you think about me

    General CommentWait wait wait...is it that when she thinks about him she feels like that or that she feels like that before she thinks about him? Hmmm...

    General CommentThis is a cool song. The first verse is implyin that the girl lives in a fantasy world so maybe she is brought out of her world when she thinks bout him...

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite Gutterflower song. It's so descriptive and beautiful. I love Johnny Rzeznik's voice. It really shines on this track.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my relationship with a guy I knew once. It's really amazing how perfectly the lyrics describe the whole situation. That's what I love about Goo Goo Dolls, everyone can find a song or more of theirs that they can apply to their lives.

    General CommentAll Goo songs rock...instead of my interpretation of this song, I'll provide some trivia:

    During a recording session, Johnny hit his head on the mic and got shocked or something and he screamed out loud. They thought it was so funny that they kept the scream in the final release. You can hear it just barely if you listen hard right after he sings "and all you want is something i can't be" and then they go in for an instrumental interlude. As you can see, the person who submitted these lyrics wrote in "ahh!" where he screams. It's quite amusing to hear it. :)

    General Comment"You take a lot of chances with your feelings

    this is so true. people are afraid to say/act what they really feel, because of the outcome(whether it's rejection or something else) no really does know how ya feel.

    General CommentIs it just me or are John's lyrics getting worse? He used to have some exceptional talent, but these are just kind of cliched.
