Katy Perry – Thinking Of You lyrics

[Verse 1]
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.

[Verse 2]
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 your...

The best!
And yes, I do regret.
How I could let myself, let you go?!
Now, 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...

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.
