Lyrics:

I'm a stupid girl
from a stupid world
drops a love locked letter
in a steel blue box
like a wishing well

on this concrete corner
of this parking lot
flies a paper plane
full of worn out thoughts
seems that's all I've got

your eyes were darker than the stormy sky
you paid the price for love, well, so did I
last time I gazed at you
may as well have been miles away
you never saw my tears scream sorrow
across the air

now I'm Thinking of You, thinking of you
Thinking of me
Thinking of you, thinking of you
Thinking of me
Got a Tin can on a string
but the telephone don't ring
A wish upon a star
Doesn't get you very far

I'm a stupid girl
from a stupid land
how one day turned to harm's way
i'll never understand


Been a long sad year
in my dreams I'd hide
time to lick the seal,
all my words 'been said,
time to save my pride

I know you've heard it, heard it all before
all that'sleft to say now strewn outside your door
I should have listened from the start
never to send my love, postmarked
leaves me hanging on and hooked on hope's delay

Now I'm Thinking of You, Thinking of you
Thinking of me
Thinking of you, thinking of you
Thinking of me
Got a Tin can on a string
but the telephone don't ring
A wish upon a star
Doesn't get you very far

I'm Thinking of You
I'm Thinking of you
Thinking of me
I'm Thinking of You
I'm Thinking of you
Thinking of me
Do you wish me well
I wish you well
Wish you well, I do
