I wrote this in 2008, it was yet another grad school assignment. We were asked to write a song about February, so I wrote a song depicting what would happen if I carried out my plan to... well, just listen to the song.
This coming Thursday
Is Valentine’s day
I was just wonderin’
What you might say
If I were to ask you to forget what we both know
And maybe pretend that it’s a—about a year ago...
I’m really not asking much, and how long could it take? All I’m saying is...
Why don’t we fuck for old times’ sake?
I could bring flowers
I know you like that stuff
I would bring chocolates
But you’re fat enough
...and you know what, I am too,
that’s kinda like the point
So put your lips on me and not another lonely joint
For one night only, we could have and eat our cake!
Stop acting like you’re such a goddamn prize,
Come on let’s fuck for old times’ sake!
See, this is why we could never work out:
You’re a bitch, and I’m too nice.
Don’t give me that same old shit about how I want the goods but won’t pay the price,
I know you’ve got your pride, but put that shit aside
I’m laying my balls on the line for just one night with you Don’t act like you have plans;
...Oh you really do.
First date with someone new?
Oh. I did not know that.
I guess that’s different
So now I’m a joke
Guess it’s called a break-up
‘Cause something’s broke
I should hang up now
Yeah we’re better off, you’re right,
Unless, of course, you don’t have plans for later on tonight...
Hey look, I dare you to tell me that I’m not the best you’ve had ...
Okay, I dare you to tell me that I’m not among the best you’ve had...
Okay, forget it, look,
Look, if I take a cab straight there will you still be awake?
It’s not about Valentine’s day at all,
It just gave me a better excuse to call,
So save me from feeling stupid and small,
You won’t regret it much in the long long haul!
Why don’t we fuck for old time’s sake?
