Track Name: Nadia Cripps - Love (Instrumental)
Instrumental
Track Name: Gerry Callaghan | gerrybhoy - Our Life's a Love Song
our life’s a love song

I should write a love song
As St Valentines Day draws near
Tell you all the things I feel
Share with you my fears

But there’s nothing I could say
That you haven’t heard anyway
There’s nothing new
Between me and you
It’s so perfectly, perfectly clear

My life’s a love song
Our life’s the love song

So dear St Valentine
I hope that you won’t mind
We won’t be exchanging cards
With rose red hearts
And someone else’s rhyme

Cause I know how she feels
Cause she tell me each day of the year
No disrespect to you
And the good things you do
It’s so perfectly, perfectly clear

Our life’s the love song
Our life’s the love song

We’re thirty odd years
Down a road so long
Never say never
But we keep holding on
Holding on

Our life’s the love song
Track Name: Rittmo' + DragonDreams - Temporary Insanity
Temporary Insanity

plainly speaking
the percentages are against
no matter what defense
we put up,
is there any way
we can defend love



so what if birds sing in tune
it's an every day affair
so what if the roses are in bloom
without love, they'd still be there
so what if the sky is a perfect blue
and with each blink a slight change in hue



for all our vanity
we brush our hair
to the stroke of wedding bells
but from what I can tell
love is too hard to bear
love is temporary insanity



if we take a moment on this valentine
to realize, it's just a man made holiday
not a special time, not a time to find
suddenly a flower, a box of chocalates
will empower love and all of its accolades
and above all, a sweet kiss, just like this



perhaps it's true
maybe there's magic in us two...too, ooh ooh



for all our vanity
we brush our hair
to the stroke of wedding bells
but from what I can tell
love is too hard to bear
love is temporary insanity



and though it may sound tragic to say
when it comes to love
I wouldn't have it any other way...!

Track Name: Micheal Karns | JamKar - The Path To You
The Path To You by Michael Karns
copyright 2011
(Lyrics adapted from verses by Debra Bokur. )

Let this moment be yours
A space you inhabit by choice
filled with a galaxy of blooms
and scented memories.
Your heart is a waiting vessel
steady as a metronome
safe beneath it's beat and breath
lies a landscape of promise and hope.
Embrace this day these dreams
this feeling of delight
follow your own path and
let it lead you to well being.

Track Name: airbagtester - Zombies Can't Tear Us Apart
Zombies Can't Tear Us Apart
copyright 2012 Airbagtester
(chorus)
If the zombie apocalypse happens tomorrow at least I still have you
with your beautiful smile, and long brown hair
and your twelve gauge shotgun too
We'll stick to the back roads and small farm towns
and practice our survival skills
The end of the world can't tear us apart
but maybe the zombies will

(v1)
It was a clear starry evening when I heard that familiar tune
it said "MMNNNNNNNHHHHHHHNNNN!!!"
I went out to the woodshed; grabbed a pickaxe and a harpoon
Packed some stuff in my bag, shotgun shells, and your favorite sweater
Now I've gassed up my car, and I'll be there to pick you up soon
[They're coming to get you Barbara]

(chorus)
If the zombie apocalypse happens tomorrow at least I still have you
with your beautiful smile, and long brown hair
and your twelve gauge shotgun too
We'll stick to the backroads and small farm towns
and practice our survival skills
The end of the world can't tear us apart
but maybe the zombies will

(v2)
Till death do us part, or maybe never, who really knows
We'll look out for each other and our love will never decompose
You cover the left and I'll be there to cover your right
Between trips to the gun store we can still have romantic nights

[instrumental]

(bridge)
We'll drink champagne on the beach
and clean our blood-soaked clothes with bleach
and be happy together, but we won't settle down;
they're sure to find us if we hang around

(chorus)
If the zombie apocalypse happens tomorrow at least I still have you
with your beautiful smile, and long brown hair
and your twelve gauge shotgun too
We'll stick to the backroads and small farm towns
and practice our survival skills
The end of the world can't tear us apart
but maybe...
but maybe the zombies will
Track Name: TC Elliott - Strange Skies
Lyrics:

You know you drive me crazy
You always make me feel insane
Even when you say you love me
Somehow it just never feels the same

And in the darkest times
I look into your eyes
That's when I see the strangest skies

If I try to buy you flowers
You say that they remind you of death
And when I say I'm in love
You say you'd rather that I hold my breath

And in the murky times
I look into your eyes
That's when I see the strangest skies

Sometimes I wonder
Why you act this way
I wouldn't be surprised
If you said you were leaving today

Somehow I've got to tell you
All the reasons that I fell in love
And maybe you can tell me
All the things that you've been thinking of

And in the faintest times
I look into your eyes
That's when I see the strangest skies

And in the darkest times
I look into your eyes
That's when I see the strangest skies
Track Name: Kyle Patrick | Ballyhoot - The Wrong Way (take 4)
The Wrong Way by Kyle Patrick (Ballyhoot)
copyright 2012

God I'm so stupid
God I'm so stupid
I was played like a fool
I'm such a tool
God I'm so stupid
God I'm so stupid

CHORUS:

Another lesson learned
That's how wisdom's earned
The wrong way
The hard way

I feel like a moron
I feel like a moron
Time after time
I bought the line
I feel like a moron
I feel like a moron

CHORUS
BREAK
CHORUS

She was just fishin'
She was just fishin'
Her lovin' was fake
But I took the bait
She was just fishin'
She was just fishin'

CHORUS
Track Name: T.C. Elliott + Cassie Truman - The Girl Who Waited
So here I'm standing, outside a bus stop in the rain
As my clothes soak through I figure out
I've been stood up again
Why am I waiting, it's been about an hour or so
So I give up and get a ticket for
The late night special show

Three out of five stars, I guess it's pretty okay
And as I walk back out the doors I
Guess I didn't waste the day
And I see someone, looks cute and looks kinda shy
But I get there and she's in the arms
Of some damn skinny guy

And the rain comes down
And my heart slows down
And the street lights give
Her a golden crown
And I won't get her
But one day they'll see
That there's one more girl
Out there just like me,
But

=CHORUS=
I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
Yeah, I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
I never wanted much but I still have one fantasy
That one day there will be a girl who'll wait for me
=/CHORUS=

So I get home and, surprise surprise, I am late
And despite all the shouting I'm not
Worked up about my fate
I'm off to bed now, lock my room from the inside
And think about what I would need to turn
This black and loveless tide

Tomorrow morning, get a text from my best friends
There's some new science fiction film on,
See it before it ends
And as we walk home, there's the same girl from before
But she ain't hanging off a boy and she's
Not smiling any more

And the golden crown
That shows off her eyes
Flickers as the light
On and in her dies
And I go to her
But she runs away
Seems familiar
I won't pry today
But

=CHORUS=
I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
Yeah, I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
I never wanted much but I still have one fantasy
That one day there will be a girl who'll wait for me
=/CHORUS=

=BRIDGE=
And like I'm drifting deep in space
Can't quite remember any more
There is a name that fits her face
One that I can't help but adore
Don't want to get run over here
I'm not somebody they would save
I snap my fingers, give a cheer
'Cause fortune favours all the brave

And I am sometimes brave
=/BRIDGE=
(Overlaps with last brave)
=CHORUS=
I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
Yeah, I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
I never wanted much but I still have one fantasy
That one day there will be a girl who'll wait for me

Yeah, I'm still waiting for my girl who waited,
And as she stops it feels like it's fated
Underneath a secondary school oak tree
She says tomorrow she'll be waiting there for me
=/CHORUS=
Track Name: Gerry Callaghan | gerrybhoy - You Can Stay
You can stay

You can stay another day
You can stay another day with me
You don’t have to go to work
They won’t miss you at a factory
Let the weaver’s weave and the spinner’s spin
Stay and dream another dream with me
Close the door and put a log on the fire
And we’ll stick on Hunky Dory

You can stay another day
You can stay another day with me
They won’t even know you’re gone
You’re just another number
In a clocking in machine
Take you coat off and come and lay down
On this bed with me
No tomorrow
Just today just you and me

When we make love like that
I can let you walk away
I’d give everything had
For you to say another day

You can stay another day with me
You can stay another day with me

With me

Track Name: Wolf Kier + Nadia Cripps - Feeling Romantic (v2)
I'm feeling romantic
copyright 2012 wolf kier

I'm feeling romantic
I'm feeling nostalgic
I'm having some specific
If I'm honest
I'm recalling some quite terrific
memories of you

Your face in my window
your head on my pillow
your heart in a silver locket
your whisper in my ear
and that kiss

promises made
appointments kept
but I just have one regret

that

I'm feeling romantic
I'm feeling nostalgic
I'm having some specific
If I'm honest
I'm recalling some quite terrific
memories of you

Chance plays tricks on fools
Lovers don't escape that rule
Fate played a trick on me
and left me alone

without you


etc..
Track Name: Michael Karns + Nadia Cripps + Rittmo' - You Ask (Feeling Romantic v3)
You Ask

you ask, where are we going
we've never travelled this way before
be patient my sweet, it's a secret hideaway
in the great north woods, with a fireplace

with any luck, we'll be snowed in
don't be scared I've come prepared
the trunk is full of valentine goodies
wine, white chocolate, peaches and pears

you ask, when did you become so romantic
though I'm not sure if I should ruin the surprise
it should come as no surprise at all
I became enchanted, first time I looked into your eyes

gray clouds are foming
there's winter in the air
soon snow will be falling
and the flames will be calling
for us to get cozy and warm
staying clear of all harm
gently riding out the storm
in each others arms

you ask, how much longer till we arrive
in a moment, I'll be pulling up to the drive
we park, and it's a little while
before we enter the cabin, full of smiles

Track Name: Michael Karns | JamKar - Death By Chocolate
Death by Chocolate by Michael Karns
copyright 2011

You got me into your kitchen domain
slicing carrots and tearing Romaine
Now I'm staggerin under your spell
and crying through that onion-ey smell

Here comes olive oil into the pan
your garlic challenges me as a man
Might stand a chance with a creme fresca
But then you serve me your
piece de resistance

Chorus:
Here it comes, death by chocolate
rolling off your ivory cheeks
Here it comes, and in no time
It's all over those satiny sheets

Forget the coffee, resistance is futile
laying here in this big brown puddle
Head is spinning, I'm losing my grip
Now I taste those chocolate-y lips

Chorus
Track Name: Kyle Patrick (Ballyhoot) + Cassie Truman - Diamonds On The Water
******
I been there, I done that
Got the dirty T-shirt hangin' on my back
I want you, to say it
Like from before that old doctor took you back
This demon, in your heart
Seen it slowly getting stronger breakin' through
It wasn't, about me
Used to think so but that comfort's long gone too

=CHORUS=
You're always talkin' 'bout it
How
You wanted more
You're always talkin' 'bout it
How
You don't deserve it
You're always talkin' 'bout it
How
You needed more
You're always talkin' bout it
But
I'm not listening now
=/CHORUS=

We could have, been writers
Or politicians and other such liars
I gave my, heart to you
Guess I can't really say you stole the fire
Our orbit's, decaying
Circles of friends collapse like dying stars
The fault is, all mine now
Guess I shoulda never let it go this far

=CHORUS=
=/CHORUS=

=BRIDGE=
And I see diamonds on the water
Tonight right by our sacred river
And I see headlights round the corner
It wasn't gonna last forever
=/BRIDGE=

=CODA=
I'm always talkin' bout it,
How
I'm over this
I'm always talkin' bout it,
With
The therapist
I'm always talkin' bout it,
How
I'm sick o' this
I'm always talkin' bout it,
Now,
It's time to finish...
=/CODA=
Track Name: Michael Karns + Rittmo' - Love is Why
Love Is Why

stars exploding light years away
made us what we are today
pixels, mere grains of sand
a design in hand, a master plan

earthquakes crash upon the world
tornados swirl, volcanos erupt,
fires rage between boy and girl
we spin, we rotate, we fall in love

it's a spiritual floating in time
some call it a valentine
we dance we sing, we celebrate
we end all debate

love is why we're here
to cherish with heart warming care
love is why we're here
to relieve all the burdens we bear
love is why we're here

a universe in turmoil
a world in grave despair

love is why we're here
to cherish with heart warming care
love is why we're here
to relieve all the burdens we bear
love is why we're here

Half A Moon

half a moon
half a life
without you

half a moon
table for one
without you

half a moon
my horizon undone
without you

half a moon
you left me flat
half a moon
stole my welcome mat
half a moon
I'm so matter of fact
without you

half a moon
passion divided
without you

half a moon
love a beheaded ghost
without you

half a moon
a stagnant valentine
without you

half a moon
you left me flat
half a moon
stole my welcome mat
half a moon
I'm so matter of fact
without you

half a moon
half a life
without you

half a moon
table for one
without you

half a moon
my horizon undone
without you

half a moon
you left me flat
half a moon
stole my welcome mat
half a moon
I'm so matter of fact
without you

half a moon
passion divided
without you

half a moon
love a beheaded ghost
without you

half a moon
a stagnant valentine

Track Name: Rittmo + Nadia Cripps - It Wasn't Always Like This (It Was So Special v2)
It Was So Special
lyrics by Rittmo

me and my tarnished heart went walking on a cold February day
the barren trees didn't seem romantic with their dark gray branches
a few sparrows chanced the elements, but they weren't singing
thoughts of spring flowers and chocolates were oh so far away

it wasn't always like this, when kiss me was painted on your lips
now pain is my sole embrace, that old refrain, love in vain
echoes through this day of valentines' long gone by, a harsh wind
blows, and I bow my head, as my shadow in sorrow cries again

tears turn to ice before they hit the ground, and I'm so tired
of self pity, and I'm thinking in some obscure way,
even sadness is pretty, surely I'm not the first to have loved and lost
and if there's a silver lining, I do a repeat performance,
regardless of the cost....

Rittmo' Style Valentine

breathe deep the smog and smut
makes one proud to be alive
send a taxi for my valentine
black with bright yellow tires
hell on wheels told you so
twelve dead roses and a ham sandwich
on moldy bread any one seen my beer
a knock on the door tap tip tap
come in and get uncomfordable
make yourself some foam and dip
yourself into my sweaty self
this like all other birds will fly
let me help you with that
my oh my

on the windowsill are some chocalates
i let the pigeons peck out the nuts
wipe your hands on the curtain
they're overdo for new
much like this sparrow chested heart
comb my hair with your fingers
trace circles round my eyes
these stages take for ages
my breath deep controlled
console me with sweet i love you's
sing it softly
as if it's not a lie
let me help you with that
my oh my

veins like road maps
we ain't spring chickens any more
karma sutra ain't got a chance
i'm not a pretzel never was
never had a fling with abnormal love
but i do have a thing for you
let me trace your bermuda triangle
only a girdle to hurdle
arthritic fingers, not doing the trick
try as i might
i'm fighting the good fight
dying of fright
when she said
in a voice reminiscent of shy
let me help you with that
my....oh....my

Track Name: Michael Karns | JamKar - You'll Be Mine
You'll Be Mine

I was there again last night
in my bed, no end in sight
to images of you and me
consuming all of tranquility

Not a glimmer of sleep in sight
your energy is burning bright
close my eyes, but to now avail
all my senses under your assail

We only met the other day
I never thought I'd ever hear you say
these words to me while the music played
You'll be mine, you'll be mine, tonight

Chorus:
You'll be mine
You'll be mine
You'll be mine

Track Name: Rittmo' + Nadia Cripps - Our Fairytale (You Came To Me From a Fairytale v2)
Our Fairy Tale

I can't predict the future
but I was thinking
if I could suture the horizon
to my liking, place the clouds
where I wanted them, the sun
teetering on a ledge of a
wondrously blue sky
then maybe i could place you
in my fairy tale
and on the back of kites
we could go sailing
or we could jump from
puffy puff, to puffy puff
floating in our fairy tale
and as the sun goes down
we'll do cartwheels
and turn ourselves into stars
twinkling down on the merry hearts
me and you, space twirling
upon a lover's trail
in our very own fairy tale!

Track Name: Rittmo + Nadia Cripps - Love v2 (Rittmo Vocal)
sometimes I wonder if love comes from a magicians hat
now you see it, now you don't
I will, I will, I won't I won't

when you said I love you
I took it with a grain of salt
though I know my sad memories
are not your fault

I can't help but imagine you saying goodbye
can't help but wonder if they'll come a time
when what can I do for you, becomes why are you bothering me
wonder if I'll be wishing for you to set me free

then you said with a laugh
why don't you saw me in half
cut me open see what makes me tick
see if I'm just another magicians trick

and I fell heads over heels
couldn't believe I could feel
this kind of love again
lovers and the bestest of friends

a card in my pocket
copyright 2012 gerrybhoy

Coming round the bend
That takes me home again
I got a card in my pocket
For a girl I'd like
To get to know again

We're both a little crushed
And it's been a little rushed
Since the news got through
She's with someone new
And there's a weddding planned
I'm not invited to

On St Valentines Day
She was always romantic
In that way
I travelled night and day
To have my say
On her wedding day
I can live with the hurt
I'll cause
Cause it's a worthy cause
This is a big mistake

Hold on honey
I'm coming home
There's some things
That you should know
When I left town
I wasn't thinking

I was a stupid little kid
With a great big smile
But I'm coming home
I'm gonna put it right
I don't know what it was
I was thinking

Hold on Honey
I'm coming
Home to you
Sweet Darling
Hold on Honey
I'm coming home

Hold on Honey
I'm coming
Home to you my Darling
Hold on Honey
I'm coming home

Now I'm flying round the bend
That takes me out of town again
I got a bride riding sissy
On a motorbike
In her wedding dress
They wanna be the death of me
But they just don't see
It was never meant to be

Hold on Honey
They're coming
Hold on tight
Sweet Darling
Hold on Honey
We'll rip up the road

Hold on Honey
They're coming
We'll be alright
Sweet Darling
Hold on Honey
I'm King of the road

Now I'm flying round the bend
That takes me out of town again

Flying round the bend
That takes me out of town again

Track Name: Rittmo' + Nadia Cripps - Halo Around the Sun (Yes, It's Love v2)
Halo Round The Sun

the daisies sway in the breeze
not a care in their world
not a single, she loves me, she loves me not
no quests or conquests, just an ongoing non stop
love, of nature and her twists, twirls, and curls

now if a girl were to enter the picture
with a flip flop and a shake
I think I could blend her into the mixture
as long as she promised no heartache

fat chance she says, there are no guarantees
it's a day to day contract, maybe even minute to minute
hold on a second sweetness, it's valentines day
can you cut me some slack, can Suzie come out to play
c'mon we'll have fun, as long as the halo atop the sun
is round, and there's you and me frolicking in it

so picking a daisy I ask, do you love me
she says shush, not while we're playing
I say, what are you saying, she laughs
I'm the angel, you do the praying...

Fourteenth Of Spring

on the fourteenth of spring
be it april may or june
a young girl dreams and swoons
about a man who will be her everything

in one sequence a top hat and a cane
and he's all at once her magician
swans fly, while flamingos bathe
she's a rampant tigress in his cage

in another scene an artist and his canvas
her silohuette on a hillside his sole trespass
he whispers, sweetheart, come a little closer
hold that pose, in another life we were surely lovers

in the final chapter, a boy with holes in his shoes
says if you look you'll see a million shades of blue
and big beautiful clouds, that blossom with the passing of time
on this fourteenth of spring, will you be my valentine

Track Name: Gerry Callaghan | Gerrybhoy - Her Ma Met a Man
her ma met a man
copyright 2012 Gerry Callaghan (gerrybhoy)

Her Ma met a man
At the dancin
Down at the Barrowlands
He was handsome
His smell was clean and sweet
And his hands
They were soft and dry

His hair was combed and neat
You could see your face
In the shoes upon his feet
His shirts were whiter
Than a brand new cotton sheet
And her Ma had said
His suits were made by hand

But her Da was the best
Even though his hair
Was always a mess
He never shaved
And he could'nae care less
If his socks were odd
And shirts were less than white

Ever since he left
She's had a stream of Uncles
That loved her Ma the best
They always left her
In a babbling greetin mess
And sometimes
Even with a blackened eye

Her Da left on the Monday
Her Ma'd a new man by the Sunday
On her airm

She said
Somebody's got to love me
I just need someone to love me
I'm daen nae hairm

But it broke the wee wain's heart
To hear her Ma being called a tart
In the school playground
It wis'nae long before he left
Mr Perfect and her Ma the mess
Back on the merry go round
The merry go round

She walked the city streets
Lookin for her Da
In every pub that she'd
Been stood ootside
With crisps and juice
Whilst inside he
Drank until the money
It ran dry

She found him in a mess
Sat on a pavement
Wi his troosers hangin
Off his arse
Tryin tae roll a fag
Wi his hat between his legs
Catching pennies
Fae passer's by

He said
"An Angels come to save me
Sent by the Virgin Mary
Tae save ma life"

She said
"Da I've come to take ye
Back hame tae Ma
She's lost without ye
And ye need yer wife"

So they clambered up the stairs
Crashed through the door
Into her Mother's airms
There they laughed and cried

"I'd rip ma heart oot
Fae neath this vest
Ye know I love ye
Much mair than the rest
If you'd just realise
If you'd just realise"

The wee wains heart did fly
As a tear ran doon her Mother's eye
When she held his hands
And said "Danny I've alway's loved you
There's many a man that's tried to love me
Only done me hairm
Only done me hairm"

And so the story goes
Time it healed them
And the wee wain's spirit rose
To see the love between them
Grow and grow and grow
And grow and grow and grow and grow and grow

Track Name: Rittmo' + Nadia Cripps - Together v2
we started off on a teeter totter
a touch off balanced
it was a challenge to stay together

but we somehow knew our diferences
wound make us stronger
we worked hard to overcome our defenses

you saw the horizon as a start
and I as as an end
we stood on its ledge, and opened our hearts

to each others point of view
and learned of the possibilities
from the vantage point of discovering something new

we started off on a teeter totter
a touch off balanced
it was a challenge to stay together

we weathered some storm clouds
but never doubted our love
we found a way to stay together

and that's what true love is all about

The Way You Make Me Feel
copyright TC Elliot 2012

I like the joy in your eyes
I like the way you make me fantasize
The way you've got me wrapped around your finger every day

I love the smile you wear
When you know that I'm right there
I love all the little things that you do and say

I love the way you make me feel
When you put your hand in mine
And I know your love for me is real
I can't get you out of my mind

I like the way you blush
I like the way you tell me to hush
And I like the way you sing when you think that I can't hear

I like the feeling I get
Like a high wire without a net
I like the thrill that I feel whenever you are near

I love the way you make me feel
When you put your hand in mine
And I know your love for me is real
I can't get you out of my mind

I love the way you make me feel
I can't get you out of my mind
Track Name: Gerry Callaghan | Gerrybhoy - I Can Read You
i can read you

I can read you like a book
I can tell with just one look
Don't you think that you can hide
Behind that smile
I'm looking in your eyes
They always tell the truth
Your mouth it lies
Between the smiles
You think you are so so cool
And I call your bluff
And we can see
Which one of us
Is just a fool
Who think's the others a
Bigger fool

This aint love
It's a game of chess
Can't you see
That it's a mess
We're in
I much prefered it
When we were just friends

Don't you say that stuff to me
Come on Darling please

Baby, baby please

Something tells me
It's the end
I won't break
And you won't bend
And if we do see
Eye to eye
It's just to check
That there is not a lie
Being spun into the truth
We both know there's
An elephant in the room

This aint love
It's a game of chess
Can't you see
That it's a mess
We're in
I much prefered it
When we were just friends

Don't you say that stuff to me
Baby, baby please
Please don't talk like that to me
I love you Darlin please
Come on Baby please
I love you Darlin please
Come on Baby please

I love you Darlin please

For You My Love

night sky, soft pillowy clouds
a familiar face in the crowd
snow capped mountain tops
rainbow bubbles, blown and popped
are a few of the things
I bring for you my love
if I may
on this valentines day

a master key to open every heart
a hint of sunlight, even in the dark
a special smile that abides deep inside
an extra tear for when you have cried
are a few of the things
I bring for you my love
if I may
on this valentines day

the sweet harmony, of a street corner serenade
children on a stoop, selling lemonade
a ballbark, rooting for the home team
a pocket book made from pieces of dreams
are a few of the things
I bring for you my love
if I may
on this valentines day

Final Valentine

a pinch of arsenic in the wine
just enough to end all time
a lost lorns lover's quarrel
no more sad tomorrows

there'll be no kiss of death
we're no longer sharing breath
you cheated, you had the nerve
I'll sit silently and observe

your demise
on this final valentine
the closing of your eyes
on this final valentine

sweet eternal dreams
too late to atone
a peaceful scene
no fire and brimstone

I'll be sure to erase
any trace of your disgrase
you'll look so innocent
such an angelic face

there'll be no kiss of death
we're no longer sharing breath
you cheated, you had the nerve
I'll sit silently and observe

your demise
on this final valentine

If I Can

if I can steal a moment or two
to share how I feel about you
the dawn refected in your eyes
before they open to arise
the hope etched upon your lips
inviting a morning kiss
curled knees pressed against your chest
uncoiling slowly from your dream filled rest
redish brown hair, wild in every direction
the very aura of you under a spell of affection
soon to be released, oncoming woes appeased
a moment stolen, from a love unspoken
a love never to be broken

Track Name: Rittmo' + TwH - Valentine's Eve
Valentine's Eve

I've concluded that cupid isn't such a stupid fellow afterall
his vision unseeing, his calculations are so very precise
with perfect aim, he sees fit that you will surely fall
hung upside down and bleeding, your heart breaks at his devices

on Valentine's eve, he sharpens his arrows
his path along the straight and narrow
he prays on the lonely, the disenchanted
he's heralded as the all time romantic

but his pointed spheres are equipped with oppulent poison
some concoction, of chocolate and wild daisies
boys one and all revel at how the ladies go crazy
swallowing the nectar, without the slightest hint of maybe

the magic potion soon wears off
you're no longer welcome in her loft
something about different directions
needing you to be more affectionate

on Valentine's eve, he sharpens his arrows
his path along the straight and narrow
he prays on the lonely, the disenchanted
he's heralded as the all time romantic

and well he should be
getting opposites to kiss
can't be that easy...
Track Name: Rittmo' + Nadia Cripps - Forever and Always (On Valentine's Day and Always v2)
Forever And Always

forever is a long long time
and I wouldn't promise it
unless I was sure our flame would never die
and that our fire would only grow higher

always is a collection the future knows well
and though some say never can tell
there's the unforgettable aroma of autumn leaves
their burning embers which leads me to believe

we will forever be falling in love
one plus one equals us
we will forever be falling in love

of all the days
to be set up for a blind date
do you know what I mean
feburary fourtheen

could you imagine
the obligation

order a private booth
candles and violins
to tell you the truth
I'm going all in

a bouguet of lilacs
sweet from holland chocolates
she may think me strange
but what an arrangement

of all the days
to be set up for a blind date
do you know what I mean

ok so it's a mickey dee's
chile fries, extra cheese
when in doubt, feed
I aim to please

so tell me cutie
how about a fruit smoothie
dontcha just love the view
of the dollar menu

but if the girl is meant for you
it won't matter the venue

of all the days
to be set up for a blind date
do you know what I mean

Track Name: Rittmo + DragonDreams - One Last Valentine's Kiss
One Last Valentine's Kiss

he ambled out of the bar
as if he had fallen off a bottle of Johnny Walker red
but he didn't stumble, his posture was quite stout
he whistled a merry tune in his drunkards head

he had made his peace you see
he was climbing out of demon alcohols abyss
he knew deep inside it was time
to give the bottle one last valentine's kiss

though he knew he would miss his brandy
and in someway his soul belonged to jim dandy
he understood, lying face down in sawdusts wood
just paying homage to an old lost friend, like he should

reaching for his flask with his last ounce of strength
he was hell bent, to measure out the length
of his final resting place, but not until
he had hIs fill of his ever loving swill

so many women had fallen prey to his whiskey smile
charmed by his rum and rye laughter, in fact bequiled
by his sparkling wine, a beer chaser, a rind of lime
he swore to marguerita she was his only valentine

he had made his peace you see
he was climbing out of demon alcohols abyss
he knew deep inside it was time
to give the bottle one last valentine's kiss

one last valentine's kiss
one last valentine's kiss
one last valentine's kiss

Love Is Why

stars exploding light years away
made us what we are today
pixels, mere grains of sand
a design in hand, a master plan

earthquakes crash upon the world
tornados swirl, volcanos erupt,
fires rage between boy and girl
we spin, we rotate, we fall in love

it's a spiritual floating in time
some call it a valentine
we dance we sing, we celebrate
we end all debate

love is why we're here
to cherish with heart warming care
love is why we're here
to relieve all the burdens we bear
love is why we're here

a universe in turmoil
a world in grave despair

love is why we're here
to cherish with heart warming care
love is why we're here
to relieve all the burdens we bear
love is why we're here

Dirty Little Secret by Cassie Truman
Copyright Cassie Truman 2012

There's a photograph of the way things pass
And it shows you next to me
There's an empty space in a small dark place
Where a pound of flesh should be
It's a sunny day, so I should go play
By the beach where we had fun
And we'd look for boats on a sunset coast
But your ship seems to have come

=CHORUS=
So you're telling me now
You're not part of my crowd
'Cause that cheerleader bitch
Said you were her first kiss
And she's everything cool
About going to school
And I'm just your dirty little secret
=/CHORUS=

And I close my eyes as the street lamp dies
And the golden light decays
Nothing's ever free, and I hope that she
Makes you happy as she says
And I'm walking back 'neath a carbon-black
Cloak of starless aimlessness
And I pray for flames, 'cause there ain't no Jamesy
To help me out this mess

=CHORUS=

=BRIDGE=
And there isn't such a thing as
Too many second chances
'Cause I'm still not over you
And our former closest friends
Say my heartbreak just won't end
If I crawl and beg for you
But I can and do believe that
She'll never ever see that
I loved you so much more
And she tried to kill my flame
But the song remains the same
'Cause you're still worth fighting for

=CHORUS=
So you know that I feel
That she's hell in high heels
She's a little blonde snake
You're all give, she's all take
She said she's straight again
So you're sat in the rain
But I'll still be your dirty little secret...

If you like.
