Lyrics

Valentine's Day

I'm trying to remember what the big idea was
I'm trying to forget the way it is
I'm trying to dismember what we used to be, because
I'm trying to forget what day it is

Valentine's Day
make it go away

I'm trying to avoid the swarm of smiling winged babes -
a hallmark of this wicked industry -
but being paranoid turns open hearts to open graves,
and that's too grave a fate for you and me

Valentine's Day
make it go away

I always felt this holiday left no romantic stain,
just consummate commerciality
and now that we are over, and you've sold me down the drain,
it fits that it's our anniversary

Valentine's Day
make it go away
