A possible alternate title for this song is "This Song Is For You".

An alternate version, with James singing the whole chorus was featured in "Big Time Cartoon" which premiered on July 11 2013.

In the Show

In Big Time Cartoon, Big Time Rush is now transitioned into the cartoon world where they are captured by monsters. The song is performed where they end up on a lengthy chase with the monsters. In the end, they successfully turn the monsters into squirrels and are imprisoned. Thanks to a heart-shaped gem, they turn into pterodatcyls and make it to their concert still into their transformation.

[Kendall]

Waking up from another day
I'm feeling so insane
'Cause ever since I saw your face
I got it tattooed on my brain.


[Kendall & Logan]

(L) Did you know that you came and you got me like this
'Cause I know you're the one I wanna be with
(K) You gotta know that I'd do anything
To get you to notice me

[Carlos]

What do I gotta do to get into my life?
I can be your bad boy or baby I could be nice
I could give you all the stars if you give me the night
I'm all eh, eh, eh.


[Kendall & James]

(K) There's a million pretty girls all over but they (J) got nothing on you
(K) Been all around the world and no one gets me like (J) the way you do.


[Kendall]

Baby I thought that you should know
None of the rest are even close.
There's a million pretty girls all over
But you know this song's for you
(J) This song's for you.


[Kendall & Logan]

(K) Now I got your attention babe
'Cause there's things I need to say
You're the one that I dream about
It's on my mind like every day. (L) every day.

Did you know that you came and you got me like this
'Cause I know you're the one I wanna be with.


[Kendall]
You gotta know that I'd do anything
To get you to notice me (So tell me)


[Carlos]

What do I gotta do to get into my life?
I can be your bad boy or baby I could be nice
I could give you all the stars if you give me the night
I'm all eh, eh, eh

[James]

Got my head in the clouds and I'm walking on air
Want you all to myself and I don't want to share
Where you wanna go 'cause I'm taking you there
I'm all eh, eh, eh


[All]

There's a million pretty girls all over but they got nothing on you
Been all around the world and (L) (ooh woahh) (K) no one gets me like (J) the way you do

[Kendall]
Baby I thought that you should know
None of the rest are even close

[All]
There's a million pretty girls all over
But you know this song's for you
This song's for you


[Karmin] [Or Without Karmin, then Kendall & Carlos]

(K) Now one in a million
So baby what are the odds
A million miles a way
But I know this is my song
You know you got the right girl
With the right muscle
Keep you real thin
But won't knock the hussle
(C) I don't want you to want me
No I don't want to be wondering if you wanna be with me
When the skies hit the thunder
I still want my heart fluttering every day
Without the shadow of a doubt
Baby all you gotta say

[All]

There's a million pretty girls all over
But they got nothing to you
Been all around the world but no one gets me like you do
Baby I thought that you should know
None of the rest are even close
There's a million pretty girls all over
But you know this song's for you
This song's for you.


[Carlos & Logan]

What do I gotta do to get into my life?
I can be your bad boy or baby I could be nice (L) (Yeahh- Woahh) (J) (This song's for you)
I could give you all the stars if you give me the night
Come on (eh, (4x))

[James & Logan]
(J) This song's for you
Got my head in the clouds and I'm walking on it (L&J) (This song's for you ((3x))
Want you all for myself and I don't want to share
Where you wanna go 'cause I'm taking you there
Eh eh eh, eh.


[James]

This song's for you (Ohh- wo-oaaahhh)
This song's for you, (This song forr yaa)
This song's for you
This song's for you
