I love this song. I love the images, the rhymes, the story arc, everything. But I only play it once a year. Because, you know, Valentine’s Day.
Public service announcement: Valentine’s Day can be an emotional minefield, so take care and step lightly when it comes around. A lot of people are having a rotten day. (I am not one of those people.)
© 2003 Bryan Masters C D C D starts so nice G Em making love like rolling dice C D making out while the sun comes up G Em making eyes over coffee cups Am D making fun of the way I snored Em the night before Am C make the morning last D making love some more it's all too perfect C D it's valentines day G Em let's start if off with a massacre C D Em old rusty swords and bleeding hearts C D it's valentines day G Em let's start by killing the messenger C D who told us that things never turn out Em the way that they start C on Valentine's Day D G on Valentine's Day A house of cards a pair of poorly chosen words a pair of angry silent eyes a pair of tempers on the rise a pair of earrings still wrapped up with a bow pair of dice rolled snake eyes ain't paradise no more it's all too perfect Em Am Valentines Day C G is just a February day Em but it's drenched in crimson Am like blood and a dozen Em perfect roses Am and everybody knows its Em not the same since Am it became this Em you'll have to blame this D on St Valentine Evening falls each hoping that the other will call each wondering how they jumped the track each wishing they could take it back each wishing they could just turn back their clocks back to coffee cups and earrings in a box it's all too perfect Bryan Masters Music/ASCAP
