"Thinking About You" as written by Norah Jones and Iihan Ersahin....
Yesterday I saw the sun shinin'
And the leaves were fallin' down softly
My cold hands needed a warm, warm touch
And I was thinkin' about you

But here I am lookin' for signs of leaving
You hold my hand, but do you really need me?
I guess it's time for me to let you go
And I'll be thinkin' about you

I'll be thinkin' about you

When you sail across the ocean waters
And you reach the other side safely
Could you smile a little smile for me?
'Cause I'll be thinkin' about you
I'll be thinkin' about you
I'll be thinkin' about you
I'll be thinkin' about you

    General CommentI think the meaning translates as her moving on with her life and letting her partner go, but saying y'know, i'll still be thinking about you where ever i go, i won't forget you.

    General CommentI defenitly think this song is about getting over another person and moving on with your life. Trying to move on but still thinking about the other person. And knowing that the other person always will be a part of you.

    My InterpretationOk I just got it I'm pretty sure.
    1. Yesterday I saw the sun shinin'
    And the leaves were fallin' down softly
    My cold hands needed a warm, warm touch
    And I was thinkin' about you
    - she misses him . I think it just sounds like a lover song, not one of parents (if its even about her maybe its just ambigious)
    2. But here I am lookin' for signs of leaving
    You hold my hand, but do you really need me?
    I guess it's time for me to let you go
    And I'll be thinkin' about you
    -Do you really need me, I think its like the person shes talking about (maybe her) doesn't think he/she likes her enough? so she needs to let him go but will think about him/her and what it could of been? Or maybe the other way around.

    What do you guys think about my interpretation.

    3. When you sail across the ocean waters
    And you reach the other side safely
    Could you smile a little smile for me?
    'Cause I'll be thinkin' about you
    I'll be thinkin' about you
    I'll be thinkin' about you
    I'll be thinkin' about you
    - I feel like this part, reconfirms it more that like the person shes talking about (maybe her) be thinking a lot about him/her, because he/she means a lot to that person. maybe this is somones parents or a friend or relative . I think a lover.

    General CommentI think that Stella-Marie is right- and so is VelocityJE even though he/she was a little harsh! we love to know if you like the song,but this isn't youtube, your blog, etc. it's where i , and others, come to think about things on a deeper level, like a corner coffee shop with beatniks playing, not like a festival of people going"oh.... my... GAWD!"
