Radio XII, side A, track 12: “Can’t Stop Thinking” by Roxanne

Oh, Roxanne, a song devoted to drunk dialing!  Yes!  If there’s one aspect of relationships that needs to be captured in song, that’s it.  Of course, no girl in her right mind would ever hang up on you once they heard this awesome song, but I think we can all agree that you took some artistic license.  I mean, I can attest to the fact that when one drunk dials someone, it’s very rare that they’re going to sound this coherent, much less have an awesome rock band backing them up.  And this was in the days before caller ID, much less cell phones, so if you were REALLY drunk and couldn’t remember what you’d done the night before besides a hazy recollection of using the phone, there was no way to know who you’d even called.  Not that that ever happened to me, Roxanne.  Ahem.

“Can’t Stop Thinking”

<phone ringing>

<Hi!  Sorry I’m not home right now.  Please wait for the tone to leave your name, number, and a brief message.  I’ll be sure to get back to you.>
<beep!>

Hey

Hello
Surprise, it’s me

Haha
Why
I think you know
It’s easy to see

Two different worlds

You said we should part

Oh baby
My mind agrees
But won’t tell my heart

It won’t tell my heart

‘Cause I
Can’t stop thinkin’ of you

‘Cause I can’t stop thinkin’ of you

No matter what I do
I can’t stop thinkin’ of yooooou

Made this call
To hear your voice

Oh, but now you’re not home
And I’ve got nooo choice

Then just when I thought

That I’ve made it through
Oooooooooo!

Every place that I go
Everyone that I know
Everything that I do
Reminds me of losing you

‘Cause I
Can’t stop thinkin’ of you

‘Cause I can’t stop thinkin’ of you

No matter what I do
I can’t stop thinkin’ of yooooooou

No matter what I do

I think of you

And all that we’ve been through

<awesome Roxanne jam>

‘Cause I
Can’t stop thinkin’ of you

‘Cause I can’t stop thinkin’ of you

No matter what I do
I can’t stop thinkin’ of yooooou

Yesterday
Seems so

Far away

I’m runnin’ out of time

I guess I’ll

Disconnect the line

‘Cause I
Can’t stop thinkin’ of you

‘Cause I can’t stop thinkin’ of you

No matter what I do
I can’t stop thinkin’ of yooou

(Can’t stop thinkin’ of you)  Can’t stop thinkin’
(Can’t stop thinkin’ of you)
