about

Valentine is the first single from my upcoming album Golden Boy. It's about love, fleeting connections, and, in retrospect, making a bigger deal out of something than it really is. It's about 2/14/14. I hope you like it.

lyrics

i saw your face and knew your name
it just came to me, it just seemed right
and in a theater full of bodies and beating hearts
it just seemed right

and at the party
i told you my name twice
we left the party
and slipped onto the ice

yes, love is a river
and you skated into me
yes, love is a river
that you followed out to sea
while i tripped over me

you’ve been haunting me some time
my valentine, my valentine
came to my home, stayed in my mind
limbs entwined, blank page unlined
and you began to write
a story with no end
it just came to you, it just seemed right
and in someone else’s bed
with your arms around me, it just seemed right

and at the party
you made me feel alright
we stepped outside the party
and you were bathed in winter light

yes, love is a river
with a current much too fast
yes, love is a river
that i pray doubles back at last
‘cause i’m living in the past

you’ve been haunting me some time
