I am wrapping html tags around the_title(); like

if(has_post_thumbnail()) { 
  the_post_thumbnail('home-thumbs');
   echo "<span class='home-title'>".the_title()."</span>"; 
}

But the the_title is printing above <span>, not like what i want. am i missing something? or doing something wrong?

found the problem, the tags need to be inside the () like the_title('<span>','</span>')
