about

I wrote this track for Valentine's Day in 2010. It's my attempt at articulating my dislike for the commercial event and how it sets peoples expectations. It might be anti-Valentines, but it's not anti-romance.

lyrics

I won't be buying flowers this Valentines
They die too fast and I don't want that for us
And I won't be buying chocolate, it's so cliche
Everyone loves chocolate. They eat it every other day

But I don't want you to doubt my love for you,
Deep inside my heart I know that it's true

On the day that everybody feels they have to say "I Love You"
I feel I have to say "I love you more than that"

I tried to find a card - It's oh so hard to find one
Where the words say the exact way that I feel about you, deep inside
But you know what they say - "It's the thought that counts..."

On the day that everybody feels they have to say "I Love You"
I feel I have to say "I love you more than that"
