Do You Know Who Is Thinking Of You? (rev)

thinking of you
If you start out every day
in the same old gloomy way
it’s little wonder what other people think of you
but the ones who matter most
are the ones who hold you close
in their hearts who’re always thinking of you

do you know, do you know,
do you know who is thinking of you?

As if you never knew
who was thinking just of you
and held it close and never shared a bit of it
there’s no-one else to blame
you had your youthful fame 
played it close and didn’t think about it

did you know, did you know,
did you know you didn’t think about it?

And now you are depressed
even when you’re sorely blessed
with rewards of unexpected gravity
you’re seated on a throne
and so very much alone
cannot see the glint of tender irony 

cannot see, cannot to see,
cannot see the bitter-sweet of irony.

The ones who matter most
are the ones who hold you close
and in our hearts we’re always thinking of you
our love is given free as love
is meant to be and we know
you’ll shine again in light of it

will shine again, will shine again,
you’ll shine again in light of it.
