"You're the One That Turns Me On" is a song by Rivers Cuomo.

Appearances

Overview

"You're the One That Turns Me On" was recorded at some point in 2003, as one of numerous acoustic demos recorded in the band's rented office space. A partial take was one of hundreds of demos leaked through the demo storefront on riverscuomo.com on November 7, 2020. A few days later, on November 11, the song was listed and quickly sold to a user on the site's demo storefront, where it was thereafter shared among fans. The same track (in addition to a full demo of the song) was released as part of the digital compilation Alone IX: The Make Believe Years several days later, on November 22.

Lyrics

I still want you
After all this time
I still get a
Thrill when you walk by

How come no one else is quite as special?
How come no one else can fill my heart?
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one that turns me on

I still call you
When I should do work
I obey you
Like a helpless jerk

How come I am captive to my old ways?
How come I am shaking in my shoes?
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one that turns me on

If I try my hardest
Maybe someday
I will free myself from you
But I don't want to
I don't need to
All I really want is you
You

How come I am captive to my old ways?
How come I am shaking in my shoes?
You're the one
You're the one
You're the one that turns me on
