"(We Want) The Same Thing" is a song by the American singer Belinda Carlisle. Written by Rick Nowels and Ellen Shipley, it was produced by Nowels for Carlisle's third album Runaway Horses (1989). It was released as the album's sixth and final single in the UK on October 2, 1990. To help promote the single in the UK, Virgin Records released a deluxe 12" vinyl boxed set with free stickers, and a picture disc CD-single, in addition to standard formats. The single peaked at number six on the UK singles chart and spent ten weeks in the top 75.[1]

Single remix[edit]

The single version of "(We Want) The Same Thing" is drastically different from the original version found on the album Runaway Horses. While the album version has a heavily accented punk rock staccato sound, the single version was changed into an powerful pop anthem; one of her most successful to date. The intro of the single version is notable for its chants of 'Hey!' repeated four times before a drum piece introduces the song. In the Runaway Horses album booklet, the lyrics listed for "(We Want) The Same Thing" vary from the actual version on the album though they match the lyrics for the single version.

Album version (verse 2)[edit]

I look in your eyes andI know deep inside thatWe want the same thingSo let's break the chains thatJust make us insane 'causeWe want the same thingHey what's the problem hereCan we negotiateI want to kiss your lipsBefore it's too late...

Single version (verse 2)[edit]

I look in your eyes andI know deep inside thatWe want the same thingBreakin the chains thatJust keep us in shame 'causeWe want the same thingNo matter what we sayNo matter what we doBeyond the battlelinesBaby, we know what's true...
