Katy Perry – Thinking Of You lyrics

Comparisons are easily done
Once you've had a taste of perfection
Like an apple hanging from a tree
I picked the ripest one
I still got the seed

You said move on
Where do I go
I guess second best
Is all I will know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes.

You're like an Indian summer
In the middle of a winter
Like a hard candy
With a surprise center
How do I get better
Once I've had the best
You said there's
Tons of fish in the water
So the water's I will test

He kissed my lips
I taste your mouth
He pulled me in
I was disgusted with myself

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into

You're the best
And yes I do regret
How I could let myself
Let you go
Now the lesson's learned
I touched it I was burned
Oh I think you should know

Cause when I'm with him
I am thinking of you
Thinking of you
What you would do if
You were the one
Who was spending the night
Oh I wish that I
Was looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Looking into your eyes
Oh won't you walk through
And bust in the door
And take me away
Oh no more mistakes
Cause in your eyes I'd like to stay.

    I hate being put to tears but this song is so good that I want to hear it even though it makes me tearup. It reminds me of my boyfriend of a year and about a month's premature death, he died in the airport parking lot coming to see me. It was going to be my christmas present. It reminds me of all his and my friends telling me to move on and putting me on dates when all I could do is think of him. I love you my loverboy, darren. R.I.P 12-22-08
    The saddest thing was that he was going to purpose to me on Christmas. Oh my I'm crying again.

    Zoey I can relate to how you feel! Bless ur heart dear!
    This songs makes me thing of my first true love he went to the army and hes now with someone else and so am I but we still write and talk on the phone. Hes gf cheated on him and it makes me so sad but he doesn't know how to leave her. He tells me maybe one day we'll get back together when the time is right and iam out of school. I just hurts sometimes and this song is the perfect explanation of my life and how I truely feel about everything. I love him some much and I hope his life in the army is long and safe. P. S. I still love you til the day I die! Love always ur one and only babycakes!

    She can't get over with her ex. But she have to accept that it's all past now. Maybe they broke up or he is dead. But one sure fact is that her heart still belongs to 'the best one'. All that she got at the moment is second best.
    I love and like this song much and it's guite personal to me as too. I'v broke up with my bf, because 'i should find 'better(?)'. So section where she sings "How do I get better, Once I've had the best, You said there's tons of fishes in the water, So the waters I will test" touched me much! . "I think you should know"

    Oh my god! I'm going through something like this right now. My boyfriend in the marines and is leaving to afganistan for 13months in exactly week and its killing me. I listened to this song though and it made me feel even worse only because I'm already fearing him dieing. I love him so much and I kno if he makes it back we will get married but still its really scary to think he will be over there fighting every day.

    I love it. I have the album 'One of The Boys' and all of the songs on the album are good. They all have lyrics that mean different things.
    Shes with a guy who she doesn't really want, and hes deeply in love with her. The guy she loves is in the army, but he dies and she realises how much she loved him. She regrets being with the other guy.
