Ooh it must be magic How inside your eyes I see my destiny Every time we kiss I feel you breathe your love so deep inside of me If the moon and stars should fall They'd be easy to replace I would lift you up to heaven And you would take their place
Then I saw red When I opened up the door I saw red My heart just spilled onto the floor And I didn't need to see his face I saw yours I saw red when I closed the door
I don't think I'm gonna love you anymore
Everyday I wake up I thank God that you are still a part of me We've opened up the door to which So many people never find the key And if the sun should ever fail to send its light We would burn a thousand candles And make everything alright
Then I saw red When I opened up the door I saw red My heart just spilled onto the floor And I didn't need to see his face I saw yours I saw red when I closed the door I don't think I'm gonna love you anymore
I've been hurt And I've been blind I'm not sure that I'll be fine I never thought it would end this way Ooh it must be magic

Julia from BrazilI read about Jani's mental breakdown somewhere and it said the guy was Richie Sambora. I think the girl was Bekka Bramlett because it seems (through looking at pics) that their relationship happened during his early days with Warrant.
Amber from Gulf Shores The song was inspired by a true story of betrayal. It was written after Lane had walked in on his girlfriend in bed with his best friend, resulting in his nervous breakdown and the delayed release of the band's first record Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich. (got this off Wikipedia)
Mikem from Port Washington, WiOOOH......I always thought that he opened the door and that the walls were painted the wrong color, now I get it...This one has some serious hidden messages.
Tommy Foxx from Peekskill, NyI love the contrast between the verses and chorus. The verses are full of hope, while in the chorus his hopes are crushed. Brilliant song writing. I had the pleasure of meeting Jani Lane back in the late 80's. Good guy. RIP!
Nina from Bronx, Ny@Pennell, Kansas City... Bourgeois Tagg's "I Don't Mind At All" was released before "I Saw Red", so if anything, Warrant seems to have produced a song that sounds like Bourgeois Tagg's. "I Saw Red" is still one of my favourite songs though.
Pennell from Kansas City, MoListen to Bourgeois Tagg's I Don't Mind At All, you can clearly see it's an obvious attempt at this song......seriously, download it and listen, especially every verse that starts out.
Mike from Rapid, Sdshe blushed from embarrassment of getting caught
Mike from Rapid, SdI didnt even need to she his face, I saw yours, I saw red, and I shut the door. she blussed. and didnt need to see anymore.
Naomi from Malibu, CaI love this song since the first day i heard it, it got me really sad to hear that a girl cheated on Jani lane(i would not have cheated on him he was so damn hott)but if that girl had never cheated on him he would have never wrote such a beautiful song like this
Sarah from Lakeland, Falkland IslandsDo not know if it's true or not but my elder brother (who is very rocknoledgable) told me the guy was Bret Michaels and the woman was Pamela Anderson.She goes through rock gods like a fat kid through cake. Janie darlin', you soulda seen it coming.
Sasha from Winston, MsWhen he says, "I saw red" it means that he was so angry, he was seeing red. It's a figure of speech.
Bob from Kansas City, MoI think red is the anger he feels.
Fredrik from Stockholm, SwedenI think red is his blood cause he sings "my heart just spilled out on the floor"
Dl from Hightstown, NjI saw Warrant sing this live in the late '90...the lead singer said that he wrote this song based on a girl in his life and he "still hates the bitch"
Edgar from GuatemalaGreat Song, I love the acoustic version. I wonder... who´s Red?
Amandass from Buckley, WaThis song was HUGE in 1990 in Texas, me and my 12 year old friends loved these guys HAHA
Jen from Birmingham, AlThere are two versions of this video, one with the band and one acoustic. The acoustic one is that way, because Jani Lane wanted to record the video in a cemetary, and the rest of the band wouldn't set foot in it.
"Thinking About You" was the ninth track from Calvin Harris' 18 Months album to enter the UK singles Top 10. No other artist has obtained so many hits from one LP - Michael Jackson was the previous record holder with seven Top 10 tunes from both his Bad and Dangerous sets.
