lyrics

last valentine

there’s a light on in the distance
it’s burning bright
he needs to tell her
before the dawning
of the light

he promised he’d be there
through thick and through thin
but now there’s a force
that’s much greater than him

he says lie down beside me
let me whisper in your ear
remember me now
in this moment right here
trace my face with your finger
paint a picture with your mind
dance naked in moonlight
with an open heart in hand
and wherever life takes you
i will understand

as he writes his daughters their last valentine
he thinks of each one and how their eyes shine
his baby’s like her mother
can sketch life with her eyes
and the older’s just like him
and she’ll keep his guitar alive

he says lie down beside me
let me whisper in your ear
remember me now
in this moment right here
trace my face with your finger
paint a picture with your mind
dance naked in moonlight
with an open heart in hand
and wherever life takes you
i will understand
