Valentine's Day Romance Blogging

Sing it to someone you love!

I've been loving you a long time
Down all the years, down all the days
And I've cried for all your troubles
Smiled at your funny little ways
We watched our friends grow up together
And we saw them as they fell
Some of them fell into Heaven
Some of them fell into Hell

I took shelter from a shower
And I stepped into your arms
On a rainy night in Soho
The wind was whistling all its charms
I sang you all my sorrows
You told me all your joys
Whatever happened to that old song
To all those little girls and boys

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
But there's a light I hold before me
And you're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

Sometimes I wake up in the morning
The ginger lady by my bed
Covered in a cloak of silence
I hear you talking in my head
I'm not singing for the future
I'm not dreaming of the past
I'm not talking of the first time
I never think about the last

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
Still there's a light I hold before me
You're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

This one's for you, Thers. Still the smartest, sharpest, and funniest person I've ever met, in all your incarnations.

Oops. All those times at Atrios' trying to be "first" or "frist", I don't think you were meaning to tell the world about Thers and your "fist" time. But I don't know...

Happy Valentine's Day.

You guys are awesome :)

What song is that, anyway? It's ringing a bell but no one is answering...

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you!!

This is The Pogues' "Rainy Day in Soho," the closest thing we have to "a song."

But I don't think it counts as sappy if Shane McGowan is involved.

refinnej said...

Yeah, Shane McGowan definately cuts down the sap-factor.

I'm quite serious when I say that you two are my bellwether for lasting relationships.

I love you both.

Thers has incarnations?

Red, pink, or white?

flory said...

Now you went and got me all teary.

Thers is a very very lucky guy.....

NYMary said...

Thers has incarnations?

Sure. He has a claymation version, for example.

Hope you two had a nice Valentine's Day!
