Denver, John - Thought Of You Lyrics




It's been almost a year since that beautiful weekend, it was more than a lifetime ago.
How it happens to mind after all of this time and brings tears to my eyes, I don't know.
It's the thought of you and the way that it hurts to be so much in love.
The thought of you brings it all my way

I know that it's late, I'm sorry I called. I'm surprised to have found you at home.
It's just once in a while I remember your number, I was hoping that you'd be alone.
For I thought of you and the way you can turn it around with a smile.
And the thought of you brings it all my way.
I know that it's over, but I can't discover a way to erase how I feel.
I remember the nights and the passionate fights and I know that I love you and I always will.

And I want you to know that I'm always here for you. Any day, any night, any time.
It happened before, it could happen once more,
there's a chance that you might change you're mind.
For the thought of you and the way that it feels to be safe in your arms,
the thought of you brings it all my way.

I know that it's over, but I can't discover a way to erase how I feel.
I remember the nights and the passionate fights and I know that I love you and I always will.
It's been almost a year since that beautiful weekend, it was more than a lifetime ago.

Denver, John Thought Of You Comments
  1. Bob Joyner

    How fortunate to have lived at a time when God bestowed the most beautiful human into our collective hearts and spirits. John represents the very best of humanity and one can't help but believe he was divinely inspired and even Heaven would pause and bow to his spirit. John was infinitely more than the creator of beautiful music and lyrics that touched the fabric of our hearts, he sowed the seeds of truth and brought awareness to issues many of us were impervious. John entertained large audiences where there was such a love and respect, you could feel the positive energy that permeated the entire auditorium. His presence alone is like non other I've experienced in my 64 years, everyone felt inspired and so joyful that his beautiful music was only a means to an end to bring this presence of peace and a sustaining change within our hearts. I doubt there will ever be another John Denver and as I look back upon my life, how blessed to have lived during the most magical moments of life due too the nexus of John's life and the incredible sustaining transformation in the lives of millions. God's Infinite and Eternal Peace John! Bobby

    初めて聞く歌だと思います。ジョンデンバーさんの歌は 聞いていて 飽きないので、気がつくと時間が経っていることが多いです。 余計な話ですが、ときどき くりーむしちゅーの上田さんに 似てると思うのは、私だけでしょうか? どーもスミマセンです。

  22. Connie Washburn

    so many of my friends could not understand my affection for John Denver,,,but I said listen to his lyrics and listen to his voice..different, but wonderful.. his love for nature, people, and his lyrics tell how he feels about life, nature, and love.

    John Doe

    Connie Washburn
    Totally! He was super awesome!!!

    Geoffrey Hodgkinson

    I had the same feeling, we JD fans are as different as JD was and we understand his words because we listen to them, so many
    people would not even hear his words and even if they did they would not feel the way JD fans do. Hard to explain but that is
    the way I see it. The depth of meaning, the depth of feeling and above all the transparent honesty in his songs together with music
    to die for.

    Pauline H

    Geoffrey, so very well said

  23. peggy platt

    May his SPIRIT forever fly over his Beloved Rocky Mountains. John you are truly missed.

  37. Phil Leith - Little Corner Studio

    Man.  we really lost something when he passed on.  I've never heard this song before now.  And I'm a pretty big fan.

    I just have this hunch he never fell out of love with Ann, listening to his songs.

  38. Richard Ybanez

    what a wonderful song. It reminds me of all the things I learned about myself through John's songs. He put so much into each and every song. If you listened carefully you could hear so many emotions coming through.

    Me too amazing talent

  54. suzukibeane

    don't know what your beef is, but have to tell you - that kind of attitude may have something to do with your (likely) lack of appreciation for John's music. His music was global, and its global citizens are welcome to appreciate it would be his view. Please curb your xenophobic remarks. Thanks.

  55. Robert Cheung

    doorsfan44 If you are going to be a racist, at least be a knowledgeable one. I am born and raised in America. I gather you assumed my race based on the picture of my family. That was me visiting China. Also, voice+instrument tuning does not differentiate between cultures. Please do your hw first before making outlandish accusations.

  56. Robert Cheung
