Think Of Me Lyrics - Madonna

Review The Song (1)

I'm getting tired of waitin' around
I feel like I'm always trackin' you down
I don't wanna point my finger at you
But there's something you're forgettin'
Here's what you better do, you better


Think of me
I know you want to baby
Think of me
It won't be long before you
Think of me
'Cause I'll be gone and then you'll
Think of me

You walk in and you see me cryin'
You apologize say you lost track of time
I'm not gonna cry anymore
You're gonna lose me too if you don't
Know what's good for you, you better


Tell me what I did to you to make you
Treat me so badly
If you wanna see me anymore
If you don't wanna see me walking out the door you better


Stop wastin' all my time
You know it could have been so fine
Hey boy I'm waitin' on a sign
Don't you know there's someone else
Stop thinking of yourself

Consider the artist as an individual with a connection to the divine. An artist at her or his peak expresses our dreams, veiled as these dreams are within the confines of our daily experience.

Madonna is a messianic artist, whether she would refer to herself in that manner, I don’t know. As a messianic artist, her lyrics are layered in metaphor, a vehicle of transcendence. As a messianic artist, she follows a line up to the present that can best be illustrated by pulling in examples from other artists.
In Shakespeare’s Romeo And Juliet, The Friar warns Romeo that he has mortally wounded Tybalt, that in doing so he has “wedded calamity” and incurred the sentence of exile. Romeo’s response is anguished:
“Ha, banishment? Be merciful, say “death”’
For exile hath more terror in his look,
Much more than death.”

Shakespeare wrote Romeo and Juliet circa 1597 B.C.E. Up through the ages until now, humankind has mourned through various forms of art the separation that exists between humans, the separation between man and G-D. The artist provides a light into the dark horror of this separation. As Dante wrote:
“He said, “If any of this flock, O Son, stops even for an instant, he must lie still a hundred years, not brushing off the fire that strikes him. Go then. I’ll follow at your heel, and then rejoin my band who walk in a choir lamenting their eternal woes.”

The Inferno Of Dante
Translated by Robert Pinsky

Madonna has personified, since her explosion into the public eye, earth-goddess in all her glorious heat and rage. In the song “Think Of Me,” she is calling a reluctant, recalcitrant lover to her. Within the context of her body of work, this lines her up with other artists whose work personifies separation and merging. Her sexual imagery can be viewed within the context of world healing.
I don’t think, within the context of her work, I am reaching when I call Madonna the personification of the messianic era.

And so I pray,
