That thing you do...

In half-slumber,
In unknowing.
In trying to hold onto the floating riff-raff
It’s that thing you do!

In surprises, fleeting glances,
In not answering when I ask,
In speaking when you do
It’s that thing that you do!

In my dreaming,
In my wanting to hold you
It’s always that thing you do
To Me.

[Inspired by the 1996 film 'That Thing You Do!' written and directed by Tom Hanks. The lyrics are here.]

Doin' that thing you do,
Breaking my heart into a million pieces,
Like you always do
And you,

No particular reason as to why I paste the song, but then things like these don't require reason

Yes we mirror, echo and all that

Please do hop in, am waiting :-) I hopped in here on the Songs-55 for you.

You are wonderful and yes am pretty much with you on reason, un-reason.Lot of things were racing through me when I was writing it so I wrote in very less time, almost like getting over with it as soon as I can.
