"Think About You" as written by W. Axl Rose, Saul Hudson, Duff Rose Mckagan, Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler....
Say baby you been lookin' real good
I remember when we met
Funny how it never felt so good
It's a feelin' that I know
I know I'll never forget
Ooh it was the best time I can remember
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever
There wasn't much in this heart of mine
There was a little left and babe you found it
Funny how it never felt so good
It's a feelin' that I know
I know I'll never forget
Ooh it was the best thing I can remember
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever
I think about you
Honey all the time my heart says yes
I think about you
Deep inside I love you best
I think about you
You know you're the one I want
I think about you
Darlin' you're the only one
I think about you
Somethin' changed in this heart of mine
An I'm so glad that ya showed me
Honey now you're my best friend
I wanna stay together to the buryin'
Ooh it was the best time I can remember
Ooh and the love we shared - is lovin' that'll last forever

    General CommentI think, "Think about You" is the definition of infatuation, or being
    infatuated. The exuberant rhytm and melody are just like the feelings
    you get when you fall in love - happiness, illusion of omnipotence,
    thrill of the unknown etc... What do you do, when you fall in love?
    Some people run around and yell "I'm in love!!!", some tell their
    mother about it, some write poems; in general, different people do
    million different unusual things. However, there is one thing everyone
    ALWAYS does when in love: they think about the person they're in love
    with. Day and night, hour after hour, non stop. They want that person
    to know it. And if they pluck up enough courage to say I "Think about
    You", and receive a similar response, for some time they are the
    happiest people in the world.

    Some people will call all this simply "love", accompanying the term
    with expressions like "eternal", "forever", "untarnished" and other
    such stuff. What they don't know is, that this "love", as they call
    it, will wear off after a couple of months, as soon as their glands
    cease to produce certain hormons. Love, about which Axl sings about,
    is no more than involuntary reaction, a simple infatuation, or a
    chemical reaction. Did you notice, that Axl does not call that "love"
    but "loving"? (a hell of a difference to me) He does not sing about
    deep, time-consuming relationship with a woman (which is the REAL
    love), he sings about the most simple, yet beautiful and powerful,
    reaction to a woman matching his preferences. Unlike artists like
    Britney, Ricky Martin and the such, who pour all sorts of "loves" into
    most of their meaningless songs, Axl is aware of what love is and what
    it isn't.

    Being simple, yet containing quite a profound message, this one is
    one of my favourite lyrics all times. Combined with awesome music, it
    can only have the highest

    General CommentI agree with you to a degree, Lester. Axl does in fact say he loves this person. "Deep inside I love you best"...um, I think that kinda takes away a good portion of your theory.
    Great song though, very beautiful. I've felt like this, thinking about the person non-stop and wanting nothing more than to be with them but it doesn't always end up as such which this song hints at. It just seems more like Axl was in love with this girl but she didn't feel as strongly.

    General CommentJust one question: can you love somebody better or best?

    General CommentOf course you can love someone better Lester. think about it - if you really care about a girl you are going to love her better or more than your a girl who may be pretty but has no significance to you

    General Commentyou can either love sb or not - true, real, genuine love is a non-gradable state. if i love a girl, i dont love her better than the other girl who has good looks but is of no signifficance to me, i love the one that i love and simply do not love the other. axl sais he loves the girl best just as many other people do when they get infatuated. they feel very elated and confident and say loads of things they have no clue about (like "ill be with you forever" and stuff like that). but it does not mean axl (and the rest of the "i love you best" people) trurly loves the woman. maybe one day, but not at that moment. it may sound crude, but it would be his testicles taking over his brain that make him say things like that.

    General CommentGuys, this song wasn't written by Axl. It was written by Izzy Stradlin. There are a interview for the Hit Parader from 1988 that GN'R explains the song of AFD. Welcome to the jungle was written by Axl & Slash; It's so easy by Duff & West Arkeen; Nightrain by them all; Out to get me by Axl & Slash; Mr. Brownstone by Izzy & Steven; Paradise city by Duff & West Arkeen; My Michelle by Axl; Think about you by Izzy; Sweet child o'mine by Axl; You're crazy by them all; Anything goes by Axl, Izzy & Chris Weber; e Rocket Queen by Izzy Stradlin. And Izzy said Think about you is a song about love, sex, drug, money and LA. It's a beautiful song...
