Real Thing
Clare Dunn Lyrics


I remember that night in that small-town bar
Took one look into your eyes and they told me who you are
Didn't have to say a word
Didn't say a word
Small-town boy gettin' butterflies
Throwin' fireworks like it's Fourth of July
Sayin', "Baby, can I kiss you first?
Can I kiss you first?"

And I can't help myself 'cause no one
Else has ever made me feel this way, yeah

I can take a million pictures of you
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
My heart feelin' that I get
Can't believе what I see when you look at me
Lookin' at the rеal thing, yeah

The real thing
The real thing
The real thing
Lookin' at the real thing

It's a feelin' I get from head to toe
Movin' so fast, out of my control
And baby, you know I know
We got the real thing

And I can't help myself 'cause no one
Else has ever made me feel this way, baby

I can take a million pictures of you
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
My heart feelin' that I get
Can't believe what I see when you look at me
Lookin' at the real thing, yeah

The real thing
The real thing
The real thing
Lookin' at the real thing

Baby, I know there's no fakin'
When you say that you want me, you need me, you love me
I know it's the real thing, babe

I can take a million pictures of you
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
My heart feelin' that I get
Can't believe what I see when you look at me
Lookin' at the real thing, yeah

The real thing
The real thing
The real thing
Lookin' at the real thing
The real thing
The real thing
The real thing
Lookin' at the real thing

The real thing
The real thing
The real thing
Lookin' at the real thing

CLARE DUNN (2021) - THE REAL THING (Traducción en español)
I remember that night in that small-town bar
Recuerdo aquella noche en aquel bar de un pueblecito
Took one look into your eyes and they told me who you are
Eché un vistazo a tus ojos y me dijeron quién eras
Didn't have to say a word
No tuve que decir nada
Didn't say a word
No dije nada
Small-town boy gettin' butterflies
Un chico de pueblo provocándome mariposas
Throwin' fireworks like it's Fourth of July
Lanzando fuegos artificiales como el Cuatro de Julio
Sayin', "Baby, can I kiss you first?
Diciendo, “Cariño, ¿puedo besarte primero?
Can I kiss you first?"
¿Puedo besarte primero?”

And I can't help myself 'cause no one
Y no puedo evitarlo porque nadie
Else has ever made me feel this way, yeah
Más me ha hecho jamás sentir así, sí

I can take a million pictures of you
Puedo tomar un millón de fotos de ti
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Pero nunca van a hacerte justicia
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Sentado justo aquí, ahora mismo, mirando al auténtico
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
Como un cielo de Montana y un atardecer de Cali
My heart feelin' that I get
Mi corazón sintiendo que lo entiende
Can't believе what I see when you look at me
No puedo creer lo que veo cuando me miras
Lookin' at the rеal thing, yeah
Mirando al auténtico, sí

The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
Lookin' at the real thing
Mirando al auténtico

It's a feelin' I get from head to toe
Es una sensación que va de la cabeza a los pies
Movin' so fast, out of my control
Moviéndose tan rápido, fuera de mi control
And baby, you know I know
Y cariño, sabes que lo sé
We got the real thing
Tenemos el auténtico

And I can't help myself 'cause no one
Y no puedo evitarlo porque nadie
Else has ever made me feel this way, yeah
Más me ha hecho jamás sentir así, sí

I can take a million pictures of you
Puedo tomar un millón de fotos de ti
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Pero nunca van a hacerte justicia
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Sentado justo aquí, ahora mismo, mirando al auténtico
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
Como un cielo de Montana y un atardecer de Cali
My heart feelin' that I get
Mi corazón sintiendo que lo entiende
Can't believе what I see when you look at me
No puedo creer lo que veo cuando me miras
Lookin' at the rеal thing, yeah
Mirando al auténtico, sí

The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
Lookin' at the real thing
Mirando al auténtico

Baby, I know there's no fakin'
Cariño, sé que no hay fingimiento
When you say that you want me, you need me, you love me
Cuando dices que me quieres, me necesitas, me amas
I know it's the real thing, babe
Sé que es el auténtico, cariño

I can take a million pictures of you
Puedo tomar un millón de fotos de ti
But they're never gonna do any justice to
Pero nunca van a hacerte justicia
Sittin' right here, right now, lookin' at the real thing
Sentado justo aquí, ahora mismo, mirando al auténtico
Like a Montana sky and a Cali sunset
Como un cielo de Montana y un atardecer de Cali
My heart feelin' that I get
Mi corazón sintiendo que lo entiende
Can't believе what I see when you look at me
No puedo creer lo que veo cuando me miras
Lookin' at the rеal thing, yeah
Mirando al auténtico, sí

The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing
El auténtico
Lookin' at the real thing
Mirando al auténtico
The real thing

Lookin' at the real thing
Mirando al auténtico

The real thing
El auténtico
The real thing

Ever since I heard MOVE ON by Clare Dunn I knew she was and is THE REAL THING..Keep it goin' on..and waitin' for more..One of the best treasures!

Lee Lones

You have another huge hit on your hands. This song is the REAL THING. Awesome. You Rock Clare.

Bob Sternvogel

Clever use of the lyric video format, and a great tune well-sung by Clare. Free suggestion for a future album title: "Stick a Fork in It (It's Dunn)".

SummerSoulSis 90

Move On: "just friends"
Real Thing: dating
More: happily married!!
Excited to listen to your new stuff Clare ❣
