“(We Want) The Same Thing” is a pop song written by Rick Nowels and Ellen Shipley, produced by Nowels for Belinda Carlisles third album Runaway Horses (1989). It was released as the album’s fifth single in the UK on October 2, 1990  as a single. It peaked at number six on the UK singles chart and spent ten weeks in the top seventy-five

The single version of “(We Want) The Same Thing” is drastically different than the version found on her album Runaway Horses. While the album version has a heavily accented punk rock staccato sound, the single version was changed into an incredibly 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 vibrant 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. The lyrics in the booklet match the lyrics for the single version.
The song sold around 160,000 in the UK.
Chart (1990) Peak position

Lyrics
Here is my case
We’ve got no time to waste
‘Cause we want the same thing
We’re fighting a war
But we don’t know what for
‘Cause we want the same thing
I know we’re different now
Different as night and day
But still want you near
I just want you to stay
I want to take this chance
I want to be with you
‘Cause what you’re looking for
I am looking for too
We dream the same thing
We want the same thing
And all that we need is to
See it together
We dream the same dream
We want the same thing
For now, for love, forever, amen
I look in your eyes and
I know deep inside that
We want the same thing
Breaking the chains that
Just keep us in shame
‘Cause we want the same thing
No matter what we say
No matter what we do
Beyond the battlelines
Baby we know what’s true
We dream the same thing
We want the same thing
And all that we need is to
See it together
We dream the same dream
We want the same thing
For now, for love, forever, amen
