lyrics

In the back seat of a taxi,
in the smoke of an airport lounge,
in a high rise elevator all the way down,
I'm thinking of you.
I'm thinking of you.

In the weight of a loaded .38
snug in the palm of my hand,
in the voice of a late night operator,
in the stare of a locked up man,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

In the darkness of my sleeping hours,
in the glare of the busy day,
wherever I might be going,
or wherever I might stay,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

Like Jacob when he felt the angel's touch,
the fight and the wound he called love,
but I'm not Jacob and that's not good enough,
but I'm not Jacob and that's not good enough.

Like a king without a kingdom,
like a dog without a bone,
like a junkie without dope,
like a scared child alone,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

Like the secret you can't tell,
like the shame at the back of your throat,
like a jumper standing on the edge,
who says she's lost all hope,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

Like a cold blooded assassin
with names of on a list,
like a sniper up in a tower,
like a glove wrapped around a fist,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.

ike Jacob when he felt the angel's touch,
the fight and the wound he called love,
but I'm not Jacob and that's just not good enough,
but I'm not Jacob and that's just not good enough.

In the backseat of a taxi,
In the smoke of an airport lounge,
In a high rise elevator all the way down,
I'm thinking of you,
I'm thinking of you.
