Radio XXXII, side B, track 1: “Thinking Of You” by Sa-Fire

Sa-Fire - Thinking Of YouOh, Sa-Fire, it was always exciting when I got to hear a brand new song by a brand new singer, especially when she sounded so wonderfully beautiful like you did.  Plus the DJ said you were from Puerto Rico.  And were now living in Manhattan.  I didn’t know where either of those places were, but they both sounded pretty cool.  She might as well have said that you were from one exotic place and now lived in another exotic place.  It all meant the same to me.  Maybe I knew they were both located east of me, but I hesitate to give my younger self that much credit.  I’m still a little fuzzy on their locations, and I have access to Google maps.

But anyway, Sa-Fire, this song is really beautiful, a perfect blend of your haunting voice and late-80s electric guitar riffs.  This was a custom-made song for a late-80s romantic comedy or teen-angst film for the inevitable montage where hearts are broken and the stars mope around and look out windows and watch the rain before everything is put back together again.

It’s also custom-made for anyone who likes a great song.  Which is me, Sa-Fire.  So I’m going to listen to this again, and I’ll give you one guess who I’ll be thinking about.  It’ll be you, Sa-Fire.  Sorry, maybe I didn’t give you enough time to guess. . .

“Thinking Of You”

<awesome Sa-Fire jam>

As I sit
Lookin’ out the win-dow
I can still remember

They call me to tell me
You went away

It was such a cold day

On a Sunday morning
It came without a warning

And all that pain I felt inside

I just can’t forget you
I’m feeling so alone

Though many times I’ve tried
Can’t get you off my miiind, I’m thiinkin’ of you

Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight, I’m thiiinkin’ of you

I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far awaaaaay

<awesome Sa-Fire jam>

And even though you’re gooone

I know you’re happy
Where you are

And I know somedaaay

We’ll be together
Together again

On a Sunday morning
It came without a warning

And all that pain I felt inside

I just can’t forget you
I’m feeling so alone

Though many times I’ve tried
Can’t get you off my miiind, I’m thiiinkin’ of you

Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight, I’m thiiinkin’ of you

I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far awaaaaay

I know some daay
I’ll hoold you agaain
You and me
Together agaaaain

But until that day
I’m thinking of yoooooooooooooooou

<awesome Sa-Fire jam>

I’m thiiiiiiinkin’ of you

Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight, I’m thiiiiinkin’ of you

I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away

I’m thiiiinkin’ of yoooooou

Wonder where you are tonight
I wish that I could hold you tight, I’m thiiinkin’ of you

I wish you could stay
But you’re so far away
So far awaaaaay
