"Thinking Of You" as written by Aaron Robin Iii Hall, Joe Wilson and Melvin Smith....
Tell me mama is your life a better change ?
And tell me mama
Would you live your life the same
Or come back and rearrange ?

Tell me mama how is freedom ?
Oh I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be
And I'm trying now

Oh I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be
Tell me mama
Are the colors deeper shades ?

And tell me mama
Are there great big brass parades ?
Does the sun shine night and day ?
Tell me mama no more sleeping

Tell me mama no more weeping
I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be
And I'm trying now

Oh I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be
And I'm trying now
Oh I'm thinking of you

And all the things that you wanted me to be
And I'm trying now
Oh I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be yeah

Hey mama, hey mamama, mama
No, no, no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, no, no ....
Hey

Tell me mama is it just the way they say ?
Tell me mama
And tell me mama are you missing me the way
That I'm missing you today ?

Tell me mama can you hear me ?
Oh I'm thinking of you
And all the things that you wanted me to be
And I'm trying now [Repeat: x 5]

Oh I'm thinking of you

Thinking of you...

    General CommentThe girl left him to move on to better things. He still thinks about her and wants her back. He sounds a bit desperate, that he will change for her if she will return. He hopes that she is missing him and wants to be with him again. Pretty straightforward.

    A pretty, dreamy song. Good for the beach.

    General CommentKravitz' mother died in the 90s. This song is an homage to her and he's asking her what it's like to reside in heaven where he says, "tell me momma are the colors deeper shades...are there great big brass parades?"

    General CommentI always thought this was a song about an ex-lover (Bonet, maybe?). It never crossed my mind that he quite literally meant his mother. The allusions to our conception of heaven are great; kudos to this one!

    General CommentSo amazing, lovely, and well written, but I can't expect any less from Lenny Kravitz! I'm putting this on a cd for my mother this Valentine's Day 2011.
