That Thing We Do
Lyrics and Music by Dave Keller

I was always the last kid picked
Sat on the bench all alone
Watched all the other kids havin' fun
While I sat there, kickin' a stone
Never had a date on a Friday night
With someone who cared
Never made the party scene
You could say it sure wasn't fair
Never had a Valentine
On Valentine's Day
Never had a sweetheart
With sweet things to say
And I never had a lover
Who could love me from the heart
Never knew where to find one
Never even knew where to start

I didn't have a clue
'Til I found you
And you pulled me through

(With) that thing we do
Just me and you
You know it's true
It's just that thing we do

Now if someone had told me
I'd find a love like this
I'd have told them they were lyin'
That kinda thing just don't exist
But you made me a believer
And it only took one night
You proved me wrong baby
You feel so right



There's somethin' special 'bout the way we roll
That I don't understand
There's music in the way we work
Maybe it's part of some master plan
All I know is you're the one for me
And I'm the one for you
Your lovin' sets me free
It's just that thing, it's just that thing…

While showing the influence of his mentors (Johnny Rawls, Mighty Sam McClain, Ronnie Earl), Keller's individuality shines. Deep soul singing, fiery guitar work, meaningful songs with addictive choruses. Like a younger generation Robert Cray, Keller mixes the power of soul and blues, drawing the listener into his world, and leaving him or her richer for the experience. ... more
