The Real Thing - Christina Aguilera



The Experience: Listen, I know what you're used to. Well, tell them to step aside... You've tried over and over, and true love hasn't happened. Does it ever? Maybe you should just settle for less...

Music video: Still waiting... 

The Meaning of The Real Thing: Christina claims to be the real thing. The thing you've be searching for. But what does she offer that's different from what you're used to? The Real Thing seems to offer more of the same thing. Maybe it's slow and sweet, but it's still just want, just a spell you put on me. It's still just self-centered hunger - I sneak up on you... don't say I didn't warn you - That might be real life love. But it's not real love. Real love is more.

Ask yourself: What's the difference between wanting and loving? Which do you do?

LYRICS:

Baby I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing

Listen
I know what you're used to
Well, tell them to step aside

'Cause you put a spell on me
And I can't help but find you
Oh, let me remind you

Baby I'm coming better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing
And I'm coming
Baby I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing

Comin' slow and sweet
That's how I sneak up on you
And when the smoke clears
Don't say I didn't warn you
(Oh) Need I inform you?

Baby I'm coming better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing
(oh) and I'mma coming
Baby I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing

And I'm coming
If I want you
I'm gonna get you
Ain't no question
Since I met you
If I want you
(If I want you)
I'm gonna get you
(I'm gonna get you)
Ain't no question
(Ain't no question)

Baby since I met you ooh ooh ooh
If I want you
I'm gonna get you
Ain't no question
Baby since I met you
If I want you
I'm gonna get you
Ain't no question

Baby since I met you
Baby, I'm coming better ready yourself
Cause I-I-I-I-I'm the real thing
(wooh)
And Imma coming

Baby, I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing
(yeah)
And Imma coming

Baby, I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing
(Ohh)
Baby, I'm coming, better ready yourself
Be looking for me 'cause I'm the real thing
