Initially sung by Bruno Lauziit was subsequently re-recorded by numerous other artists. The most popular ReDDJ - I Think Of You / In Mente Te remains the one which its author gave in The lyrics recount the nostalgic thoughts of a man who is in love with a somewhat distant woman. The song does not say who she is: she may be a former lover or wife, with whom the protagonist broke up, or maybe just a casually encountered woman he immediately fell in love with.
The protagonist, in any case, can't help but think of her constantly: the Hällilaul - Frimfram Collective - Reality Music and third stanza describe the actions of his daily life, each one followed by " During the day, the protagonist is at work, then comes home, and has a date with his current girlfriend, but keeps Greg Raposo - Greg Raposo thinking to his real love and fails to appear funny and involved; he finally goes to bed but can't sleep for the same reason.
In the second stanza, he asks himself what she might be doing in this moment and bets she is searching for him too; but he has no true hope, because "the city is too big for two who, like us, are looking for each other". The three stanzas are followed by an instrumental coda which represents the explosion of nostalgia.
In Battisti's rendering, the coda has a final diminuendo in which all of the instruments dissolve into silence, leaving only the singer's voice, as to represent his loneliness in the world. The lyrics of the song were written in just 19 minutes  during a drive on the Milano-Como Highway in which Mogol composed the lyrics almost entirely improvising while Lucio Battisti sung the melody line. The drive took place on a full-loaded tiny car;  on board there were four people including Mario Lavezzi.
