This Valentine Ain’t No Saint

February 14, 2008

Happy V-Day all.  I hope you use this one day to show your loved ones how you feel.  I’m only joking.  I’m pretty impartial to the “holiday.”  It might be because I’m single.  But it might also be because of this thought: why should I (or you) take this one day to show your wife/husband or girlfriend/boyfriend how you feel?  Doesn’t it cheapen the sentiment?  Shouldn’t we be showing a good amount of love everyday?  Those thoughts were originally provided by some friends of mine, but I think I agree with it.  However, the hopeless romantic man that I am says maybe use take this day to do something extra special for him or her.

As tradition I will listen to this song by The Juliana Theory sometime today:

You got away with murder and all I got was the brunt.
You were swinging you words like punches. It was your shot, your shot, your shot.
At least I got away with your money, and all you got was my heart.
I’m never telling you that I’m sorry, cause it’s your fault, your fault, your fault.

But now that you’re gone everything is all right. In fact I’m better off this way.
Now that you’re dead to me it’s all right. I’ll never throw my heart away.

You like to point your finger, but girl you know it’s not that hard.
You told me that I was heartless, but that’s what you got so wrong.
At least I got away with your money, and all you got was my heart.
I’m never telling you that I’m sorry, cause it’s your fault, your fault, your fault.

I was minding my own business when you sought me out to shoot me down.

But now that you’re gone everything is all right. In fact I’m better off this way.
Now that you’re dead to me it’s all right. (Shot down again, already dead).
I’ll never throw my heart away.

I was minding my own business when you sought me out to shoot me down.
Where were you when I needed you? You just sought me out to shoot me down.
Come on and get it.

But now that you’re gone everything is all right. In fact I’m better off this way.
Now that you’re dead to me it’s all right. (Shot down again, already dead).
I never throw my heart away.

Goodbye, goodbye Valentine:
That’s what you want. That’s what you’ll get.

I promise you this isn’t a depressing day for me in the least, but I do enjoy the song!
