This article is about the Ariana Grande song. For the Frank Ocean song, see Thinkin Bout You (Frank Ocean song).

"Thinking Bout You" is the fifteenth and final track from Ariana Grande's third studio album, Dangerous Woman. It was released through Republic Records on May 20, 2016.

Background Edit

On April 10, 2016, the Dangerous Woman tracklist was updated on iTunes to show five explicit songs on the album.[1] Even if a song contains no profane language (only includes the word hell), it can still be labeled as explicit if it contains references to sexual behaviour.[2]

When Grande revealed the tracklist for Dangerous Woman via Instagram, this song was named "Thinkin Bout You" instead of "Thinking Bout You."[3]

Some fans wanted "Thinking Bout You" to be performed under the moon at the Sweetener World Tour in 2019. However, Ariana confirmed on Twitter that she wouldn't be performing it, calling the song "too sad".

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
I've been thinking bout you
Yeah, I've been missing you
Where the hell are you
Oh, when I need you?
I could still hear your voice
I ain't got no choice
Cause I'm here all alone
I know I can't wait 'til you get home

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I don't have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can't control my mind

[Chorus 1]
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you

[Verse 2]
Mmmm
Got these thoughts in my head
Ain't no way to forget
Got me losing my breath
Nobody got me the way that you did
Had my eyes rolling back
Had me arching my back
Now you love me so good
I wish you would hurry up and come back

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I don't have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can't control my mind (My mind)

[Chorus 2]
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (I'm bout you, baby)
I'm just thinking bout you (Bout you I'm)
I'm thinking bout you (I'm thinking bout you), I'm thinking bout you (I'm thinking bout you)
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you (So, you know that I'm bout you), I'm thinking bout you

[Bridge]
Baby, I don't want no one, no one else
So hurry, cause I need some, need some, need some help
And I've been waiting patient, patiently (Patient, patiently)
Cause I don't have you here with, here with, here with me (Here with, here with, here with me)
But at least I have the memory (But at least I have the memory)

[Outro]
I'm just thinking bout you (Bout you)
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (I do)
I'm just thinking bout you (Baby)
I'm thinking bout you (Thinking bout you), I'm thinking bout you (Oh yeah)
I'm just thinking bout you (Thinking bout you)
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (Oh, yeah, yeah)

[Verse 1]
I've been thinking bout you
Yeah, I've been missing you
Where the h*** are you
Oh, when I need you?
I could still hear your voice
I ain't got no choice
Cause I'm here all alone
I know I can't wait 'til you get home

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I don't have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can't control my mind

[Chorus 1]
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you

[Verse 2]
Mmmm
Got these thoughts in my head
Ain't no way to forget
Got me losing my breath
Nobody got me the way that you did
Had my eyes rolling back
Had me arching my back
Now you love me so good
I wish you would hurry up and come back

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, I don't have you here with me
But at least I have the memory
I try to make it through the night
But I can't control my mind (My mind)

[Chorus 2]
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (I'm bout you, baby)
I'm just thinking bout you (Bout you I'm)
I'm thinking bout you (I'm thinking bout you), I'm thinking bout you (I'm thinking bout you)
I'm just thinking bout you
I'm thinking bout you (So, you know that I'm bout you), I'm thinking bout you

[Bridge]
Baby, I don't want no one, no one else
So hurry, cause I need some, need some, need some help
And I've been waiting patient, patiently (Patient, patiently)
Cause I don't have you here with, here with, here with me (Here with, here with, here with me)
But at least I have the memory (But at least I have the memory)

[Outro]
I'm just thinking bout you (Bout you)
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (I do)
I'm just thinking bout you (Baby)
I'm thinking bout you (Thinking bout you), I'm thinking bout you (Oh yeah)
I'm just thinking bout you (Thinking bout you)
I'm thinking bout you, I'm thinking bout you (Oh, yeah, yeah)
