The Chase

Story Behind The Song

I've met a lot of people who don't realize they are chasing someone not interested, thus creating an imbalance from the get-go, and it struck me that so many people do this. It's an interesting human condition when people try to "sell" themselves to other people.

Lyrics

I want you so bad. Something in never had. I've been wonderin' why I'm not your kinda guy. I want you to see...why aren't you lookin' at me. It turns me on in the worst way. Some people might even say...
Don't bet against me you won't soon forget me. I said don't bet against me and you won't regret me.
The chase turns me on til I catch you then I'm gone.
deep down you want me. I can feel it inside. You don't have to pretend, it's just a matter of time. Mirror mirror on that wall please help her see; am I not the fairest of them. Don't bet against me you won't soon forget me. I said don't bet against me and you won't regret me.
The chase turns me on til I catch you then I'm gone. People keep tellin' me you're not into me. What do they know? they just don't see I know what I feel. Look on my way; just look on down my way.
Don't bet against me you won't soon forget me. I said don't bet against me and you won't regret me. The chase turns me on til I catch you then I'll be gone.
Then I'm gone.

Love the 80s feel. It's got that quintessential sound every 80s movie song has with a slight modern edge.
