The first time I got a letter from Jim
It came right to my house
And I was wondering how he had gotten my address
The thing is he wanted to talk about some songs I had written
And who doesn't like to talk about themselves


And a while later, A couple more letters came
And he wanted to know why I hadn't written back to him
And if he had said something wrong
Which of course he didn't say anything wrong
I just didn't know him, and it was kind of creepy and I just decided not to write back

Suddenly I'm not the only one who's searching for a hand
I sent up a rocket to your island, cuz I don't see any land
Hearing silence of a shadow if only you'll whisper out a call
But in the end it's just me me me that's all

And a long time passed
And I hadn't gotten any letters from Jim
And one day one came and it said he was sad that our correspondence had to go like that
And he wanted to know if I had seen the movie Into the Wild
He said the lead character kind of reminded him of me
And how it was such a beautiful film
But I didn't know him
He doesn't know me
So how could someone remind him of me

Suddenly I'm not the only one who's searching for a hand
I sent up a rocket to your island, cuz I don't see any land
Hearing silence of a shadow if only you'll whisper out a call
But in the end it's just me me me
But in the end it's just me me me that's all
