Happy Valentine’s Day!

For the one who is:

She can’t tell me that all of the love songs have been written,
’cause she’s never been in love with you before.
Your skin smells lovely like sandalwood.
Your hair falls soft like animals.
I’m tryin’ to keep cool, but everyone likes you.
I want to kiss the back of your neck,
The top of your spine where your hair hits,
And gnaw on your fingertips and fall asleep,
I’ll talk you to sleep.
But I’ll be the one, I will have chosen.

— Lisa Loeb, “Sandalwood”

For the one who might have been:

And she’ll promise you more
Than the Garden of Eden
Then she’ll carelessly cut you
And laugh while you’re bleedin’
But she’ll bring out the best
And the worst you can be
Blame it all on yourself
‘Cause she’s always a woman to me

— Billy Joel, “She’s Always a Woman”

For the one who was too good for me, never knew, and never will (if I can help it):

It’s goodbye to all my friends
It’s time to go again
Think on all the poetry
And the pickin’ down the line
I’ll miss the system here
The bottom’s low and the treble’s clear
But it don’t pay to think to much
On things you leave behind
I may be gone
But it won’t be long
I will be a-bringin’ back the melody
And the rhythm that I find

— Guy Clark, “To Live is To Fly”

(Weird that I’m posting one to someone who never reads, and one to someone who never even knew, but that’s just the way I am. 🙂 )
