Track Name: Brian Gray - Man Crush
You're everything I want to be.
You're everyone I want to be with me.
Whenever I exist,
That's the perfect time to think of you and me.

I'll be the Abed to your Troy.
I'm the Belushi to your Akroyd.
Caught in a mad bromance,
Just the two of us and some beer and TV.
I’ll find a way to make you see

That if I were gay, I would be gay for you.
I hope that doesn't make you feel uncomfortable.
If you were a girl, I'd be all over that,
But here's the world we live in, and here's my song for you,
My man crush.

Aren’t all the good times just a blur?
I climbed your fence, and snapped a picture.
Your people helped me leave;
Maybe I can send a copy to you.

You know that I’m your biggest fan.
I’m here for you, because I love you man.
Come get your man-hug here,
Like where you slap my back, and I slap yours too.
We’ve got mantivities to do.

And if I were gay, I would be gay for you.
I’m sensing maybe that makes you uncomfortable.
If you were a girl, then you could be my girl,
But since you’re not a girl, I think it’s time to be
My man crush.

Please, don't turn out to be a jerk ball.
Please, don't have politics that are different than mine.
Please, don't do anything new; I like you just the way you are.

I know we’ll be forever bros.
We’re mac and cheese. We’re double rainbows.
You can’t believe how much
Goes into working out your traveling plans.
I’ve got my ticket in my hands.

And if I were gay, I would be gay for you.
Why does it seem to make you so uncomfortable to hear that
If you were a girl, I'd be all up in that
But as you have no "that" all up in which to be, you're
My man crush.
Track Name: Rebecca Angel - Insignificant You
I said I didn't want your Valentine.
You took it away before I even read a line.
I told to your face, "Be gone!"
It's been a year since you even sent an emoticon.

I made it clear I'd never leave.
My steady face you did believe.
You stayed away calm and polite.
Never made a fuss or put up a fight.

Insignificant you, you are my muse.
Forgettable you, listen to the clues.
The one where I sing to steal me away.
The sad lament where my heart's on display.
Insignificant you.

Peripheral you, this note is too late.
Unimportant you, another song I dedicate.
The one that I'm with, his heart is good and true.
But sometimes I wish
You had done more to pursue me.

Unimportant.
Peripheral.
Forgettable.
Insignificant you.
Track Name: Ross Durand - Space Opera Valentine (For Leia)
It was a long time ago, far far away...
I first saw you like an angel in white
Across a darkened room I saw you
But I know you didn't see me that night

In the forest, or snow, or at light speed in space
Flying solo, or walking the sky
The force of my love binds me to you
Won't you Please say you'll be mine

I love you. You know. You're my only hope
You turn my dark side to light
So I'm sending this transmission to say, "Please be mine."
Yeah, be my space opera valentine.

I've got a really bad feeling about this
What if I turned out to be like your brother to kiss

I love you. You know. You're my only hope
You turn my dark side to light
So I'm sending this transmission to say, "Please be mine."
Yeah, be my space opera valentine.

That was a long time ago, far far away...
And I'm not a boy anymore
And you never grew older, and you'll never be mine
But you're still my space opera valentine.
Track Name: Robert Borden - Julia
Julia you are so beautiful, yah
I just want to hold you close; I just want you to know
That I’m here, I’ll always be here

FIRST IMPRESSIONS:
I saw you on YouTube in early 2008
You played your ukulele and I knew nothing could be as great ["Nothing’s That Great”]
And every day since then I’ve been hopin' I’ve been prayin'
That you’ll put “Pen to Paper” and respond to me
I’ve been saying

Julia you are so beautiful, yah
I just want to hold you close; I just want you to know
That I’m here, I’ll always be here


I’ve seen you play live three times
And each time you were swell and as usual you looked so fine
Well I’m seeing you again at the end of this month
And I’m just wondering if you’d reciprocate my crush
I “Stay[ed] Awake” super late to see you on Conan
But my heart breaks every single time I think of you alone and
“Maybe You Will” love me back
And maybe you won’t
But all I ask is please don’t lie to me
Spare me your “Sugar Coats”

Julia you are so beautiful, yah
I just want you to be mine; we could fly “Into the Sunshine”
Together, we’ll always be together

And I’ll be “Waiting” alone, for you to reply
It feels like it’s been a week, a month, “A Century,” since I last saw that smile
“I Think You Know” that we are meant to be
Seven years is so short compared to Ashton and Demi

Julia you are so beautiful, yah
I just want you to be mine; we could fly “Into the Sunshine”
Together, we’ll always be together

Julia you are so beautiful, yah
I just want you to be mine; won’t you be my Valentine?
I’m right here, I’ll always be here
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - I Shouldn't Blame You
Somewhere north of here
A girl is playing piano
And won't let me hear her

I'm getting kind of tired
How time and space conspire
To keep me from getting nearer

And like half my best friends
We've never met in real life

Heather you should know
Sometimes i joke too much
But this time I'm serious

Winter's cold and bitter
And in february's middle
That suits me more than not

In recounting all the trial
I feel better for awhile
When we talk about how we hate our jobs

Left alone
There's a part of me
That saves up self minted currency

Unspoken thoughts,
Untested words
Discarded dangerous things

I'm nothing if not sincere
But so much else goes unsaid

Oh, Heather
Sometimes "clever" fails me
I'm left grappling with cliches
Now there's a tiny stress fracture in my
Defenses against this manufactured holiday
Since I can't say it in person
This song's my second best way
But happy February fourteenth anyway

Every shred of conventional wisdom
Says I'm probably over invested
Every second of the past
Suggests that's true
If i place my heart out on my sleeve
I know it's at my peril
And there's no reason that I
Should blame you

Oh, Heather
Sometimes "clever" fails me
I'm left grappling with cliches
Now there's a tiny stress fracture in my
Defenses against this manufactured holiday
Since I can't say it in person
This song's my second best way
But happy February fourteenth anyway
Track Name: Edric Haleen - To My Significant Self
**************************

So --
Here we are again.
Here, and on our own.
Single and alone again.

So --
Things have gone awry.
Dreams have not come true.
Now it’s only you and I.

So --
Knowing this is hard,
I made you this card,
Hoping it will help.
Knowing you will heal.
Knowing you’ll be fine
On Valentine’s Day.

**************************

True --
That was a surprise,
Shattering our heart,
Learning of our partner’s lies.

True --
There’s a lot to feel,
Wanting to be whole,
Waiting for our soul to heal.

True --
You may be afraid.
Having love betrayed
Tends to make us pause.
Still, I wish you peace,
Even as you pine
This Valentine’s Day.

**************************

Hey --
Even as you cry,
As you face your fears,
Know one day your tears will dry.

Hey --
Look ahead to then
And it won’t be long
‘Til we’ll both feel strong again.

Hey --
Maybe when we do
Find somebody new,
This time it will last,
Bringing us a love
Strong enough to shine
Each Valentine’s Day.

**************************

This, then, is my wish --
To your heart, from mine --
On Valentine’s Day.

**************************
Track Name: Jacob Haller - From Your Neighbors
From Your Neighbors
-------------------
Happy Valentine's Day from all your friends and neighbors
To the couple living in apartment three.
We still remember the day
you moved in across the way.
You were so cute, so fun, and so friendly.

We've had a great time getting to know you.
You know your barbeques all rate a solid ten.
But there's something you should know,
In the interest of full disclo...sure,
'Cause honestly's the way to treat a friend.

CHORUS:
We can hear you fucking.
We thought you would want to know:
We can hear you fucking.
From above your room, and also from down below.
You're consenting adults, you can do whatever you want to.
But these walls are so thin, and we think you should think this through.

You guys are pounding away for hours at a time,
And I'm not saying that we're not kind of impressed,
But it's awkward, while you're screwing,
When our kids ask what you're doing.
Some of us use it to describe where babies come from.

And we know that everyone has these urges.
We can tell your hormone levels are beyond words.
And you're young and fancy free,
And everyone needs a hobby,
But you don't hear us screaming about Angry Birds. (Well, maybe Bob sometimes.)

CHORUS:
We can hear you fucking
Even when you're home all alone.
We can hear you fucking
Even when you're having sex on the phone.
We've tried dropping hints, but the message hasn't got through,
That's why we're resorting to sending this card to you:
We can hear you fucking.
Track Name: Jess Scherer - Carbonated Love
You’re right on time again, as always.
Stepping suave smooth out of your truck,
And oh what luck all the sweet things that you bring.
I tail you down the office hallways.
And watch you expertly restock the soda machine.

Well you and I, hey, we’re pretty good at small talk.
Saying hi hello how are you,
But you have no clue of your true appeal.
Grab a carbonated round to go and let’s take a walk.
Baby it’s the real thing yeah this is how I feel.

This is Love!
Oh I know that this is Love!
My effervescent heart
Fizzes into a thousand tiny parts.
Cupid himself would say
We deserve a happy Valentine’s Day.
You’re my cherry vanilla cola dream.

I hope you find my honesty refreshing.
Sure don’t mean to shake things up,
But my loving cup’s about to overflow.
When it comes to your story I may not know a thing.
But I look into your eyes and that’s all I need to know.

This is Love!
Oh I know that this is Love!
My effervescent heart
Fizzes into a thousand tiny parts.
Cupid himself would say
We deserve a happy Valentine’s Day.
You’re my cherry vanilla cola dream.

The candy hearts are singing.
Over the church bells ringing.
Vows that say, “I Heart U” and “Be Mine.”
For all these years I’ve waited.
To feel this caffeinated
For a Love that won’t go flat until the end of time.

This is Love!
Oh I know that this is Love!
My effervescent heart
Fizzes into a thousand tiny parts.
Cupid himself would say
We deserve a happy Valentine’s Day.
You’re my cherry vanilla cola dream.

Track Name: David LeDuc - 3rd Grade Valentine
I stayed up late
And wrote in hearts
Every message the same
You can't tell them apart

I decorated a box
For the party at school
There's a card for everyone
Because that's the rules

But there was one
I spent some time
Someone like you
Deserves some extra lines

In real small type
You can barely see
It say "thank you for
chipping my teeth, you bastard."

And everytime you push me down I devise
Another way to tape you to the pole outside, you bastard.

So there it is
My Valentine for you
I only gave you one
Because I had to, you bastard.
Track Name: Kevin Savino-Riker - Got Away
You were a siren in shinin' glass-scattered sun
I was a shy and silent distantly affectionate
Train wreck with training wheels on

I hid in my corner to fawn over the beauty only I saw
You were all exotic, had nothing to hide, you wore your
Insides like they were costumes at Mardi Gras

I was always a waiter, not much of a chaser
I'm no instigator

But I swore I saw your eyes flash invitation
To talk you later

You held my gaze
And I froze in place

And all because of my delay
You're the one who got away
You're the one who got away

I'd come back to see you, to greet you, try to meet you
In some better place

Found my first courage in the bottom of the coffee you
Served me with that Mardi Gras smile on your face

I'd climb my wall of nerves, push the ball of doubtful words aside
And tried to be my own cupid that day

But you eluded me, you did me a favor
Turns out you made a greater cupid than I did anyway

And as you slipped away
Right then I saw her face

Now I no longer have to say
"She's the one who got away"
You gave a gift I can't repay

You led me to find 'the one'
And I'm so happy this love's begun
And after all is said and done

I mean "thank you" when I say,
After all is said and done
"Happy Valentine's Day"
Track Name: Common Lisp - A Brother's Valentine
This one is for all you special gentlemen out there, who are looking for someone you just can't get from the ladies. No, that's not exactly what I mean. SpinTunes, represent! Sometimes songwriting contests -- they get a bad rap.

I'm speaking in verse since I've been told I can't sing
First off, let's establish this isn't a gay thing
And though I am sensitive and sometimes sing show tunes
There ain't no Santorum on the sheets in my bedroom

I'm pensive and anxious; not so good socializing
Bad at eye contact; find friendship quite trying
It always gets competitive; I feel disrespected
So though I need contact I remain disconnected

If you like, we could do this right in front of my wife
She and the kids would probably join in; that's my life
I get slobbered on, clobbered, watch boogers get eaten
Get wet on and sat on, but I can't be eaten

Real life is messy; babysitters cost money
Kids are drippy and messy; they think chaos is funny
If I manage to get out for a moment of quiet
When I get home the whole place looks like there was a riot

CHORUS:
When I was a child
You had to bring each boy and girl a cutesie card
Bring enough for the class
Or you can fold them up and stuff them up your ass
Now that I am grown
I kind of miss those days and often feel alone
Please don't be shocked
This is not about your goddamn cock
Brother can you spare the time
To be my man-crush bromance Valentine?

So friendship gets difficult, especially past 40
But what really frustrates is all those who can't see
The value of contact not whatever's on cable
Of human conversation around a dinner table

You could bring along your own girlfriend or spouse
Throw in some wine or whisky, not to get soused
But for social lubrication; get the words flowing
Talk politics or culture, until our eyes are glowing

Ideas and philosophies, pedantic or not
Libertarian, contrarian, agrarian or fraught with
Conservatism, idealism, concepts good or bad
Try listening respectfully, although it makes you mad

We're not Limbaugh or Maddow; we're not in it for the ratings
We don't need to practice hate or engage in race-baiting
The art of debate was once taught in every school
What passes for it now is depressingly uncool

(REPEAT CHORUS)

So friend me on Facebook, follow me on Twitter
When everything is virtual, real life goes in the shitter
Social media is corporate and the product is us
Now this is what it's come to, imagine my disgust

Hanging out IRL* seems increasingly unlikely
We've transcended friendship; it's messy and unsightly
I age and rage against the dying of the light
Maybe I'll catch you on the other side; I bid you good night

I've got just one special Valentine's Day wish for you, my brother -- only connect.

*"In Real Life"
Track Name: Gold Lion - I Love My Dog
I love the way you lay beside me
When I am making food

I love the way that you follow me around
When you have nothing to do

I love the way that your tongue hangs out the side of your mouth
I love the way that you run around when I let you out

I love my dog
I love my dog
Although she’s kind of stupid
And a little overweight
She’s still pretty awesome
And she always makes my day

I love the way that you play
With dogs that are smaller than you

I love the way that you bark
Even though it’s usually your own reflection

I love the way that your tongue hangs out the side of your mouth
I love the way that you run around when I let you out

I love my dog
I love my dog
Although she’s kind of stupid
And a little overweight
She’s still pretty awesome
And she always makes my day
Track Name: Steve Durand - The Woman Of My Dreams
I probably never told you
That you were the first girl
To whom I ever gave a valentine

Though I now have a lover
I'm giving you another
In fond remembrance of that distant time

You made me feel exposed
And I was oh, so shy
But every night I saw you
When I closed my eyes

You were the woman of my dreams
And crazy as it seems
I remember it like it was yesterday

Through all the years I met
So many girls and yet
You'll always be the woman of my dreams

Like the thunder and the lightning
I sometimes found you frightening
And had to overcome the urge to leave

But I finally got beyond it
To look past your bad habits
And see the tender woman underneath

I've often heard it said
That age is just a number
But the difference in our years
Never mattered when I'd slumber

You were the woman of my dreams
And crazy as it seems
I remember it like it was yesterday

Through all the years I met
So many girls and yet
You'll always be the woman of my dreams

Inside I had a feeling
That you could be the one
I asked for reasons why not
And the answer came back "nun"

An interesting feature
Of crushing on your teacher
Is how your feelings run to the extremes

And Sister Mary Agnes
You were my first so, I guess
You'll always be the woman of my dreams
Track Name: The Orion Sound - You (A Valentines Stalker Song)
This one’s for you, baby
Gunna tell you how I really feel

Your eyes,
Bright like a shooting star,
I like to gaze into them,
From the boot of your car,
And your face,
Tender and sweet
I like to lick it; tasty like an ice pop
I know you really want it even though you say stop.
This ones for you

Chorus:
Valentines stalker song,
If you know the words then sing along,
Even if she won’t answer your calls,
Just stare at her photos all over your walls,
Valentines stalker song,
Valentines stalker song,

Your Hair,
It smells divine,
I have a lock of it at the foot of my bed,
next to your shrine (I smell it every night)
Your smile,
It turns me on,
Though it normally takes a handful of Viagra,
When I think of you it’s like falls of Niagara
This ones for you

Chorus

Roses are Red
Violets are Blue
I’m outside your window,
And it’s past curfew,
Climbing past your curtains,
It’s the dead of night,
Creep under your covers,
Imma hold you tight,
And in the morning when you wake up,
You will see the signs,
Burning on your front lawn,
Happy Valentines!

Valentines stalker song,
If you know the words then sing along,
No restraining order to hold me back,
To get a hold on your heart, I’m right on track
Valentines stalker song,
Valentines stalker song…
Love you Spin.
Track Name: Hazen Nester - (Bored With My) Precious Little Life
Dragged into some friend's lame party
Saw you by a wall, glancing at me
We had an awkward chat or two
Before you left
But in that span of time
I found that I was gobsmacked and obsessed

CHORUS:
I cannot keep you, girl
From skating through my dreams each day and night
I need you in my world
Regardless if I have to go and fight
Armies to make you mine
'Cause now I'm bored with my precious little life

Suddenly, my mind's bursting with plans
I'll take you out to see my sucky band
I'll need to make a couple of
Changes before it's time
The real trick is how
I'll break up with that other girl of mine

CHORUS

I'm not some cheating louse, you see
But how to do it amicably?

Even though I know what's in my heart
I just know my world will tear me apart
It might be simpler
If I just forget you
But maybe simple isn't
What I need to make my dreams come true

CHORUS
Track Name: Felix Frost - Amber Avalanche
Dear Amber,
you don't know me.
I'm a gambler and your biggest fan.
You can call me Wellington Wright.
And oh, Ms. Avalanche, I'd love to be your man.

I'm a descendant of the airplane pioneers.
That's how I came to find your line of work, my dear;
the famous contest: the Arctic Races,
and the champion polar pilot the
aerial angel, Amber Avalanche.

I bet a lot of money
on your crimson-colored aircraft
on this winter day last year,
a frigid rigid Valentine's Day.

You whistled through a frozen cave,
a missile through my chest would save
a bitten heart to thaw and bleed
smitten as you take the lead.

Ever since then, that February,
you know I've been proudly wearing,
that white feather badge upon my chest
that fell to the ground from your leather vest.

I forever follow the flights
of the beautiful Amber Avalanche,
and just like your winning record
my love for you is undefeated.

Ever since then, that February,
you know I've been proudly wearing,
that white feather badge upon my chest
that fell to the ground from your leather vest.

You whistled through a frozen cave,
a missile through my chest would save
a bitten heart to thaw and bleed
smitten as you take the lead.

I dream of us flying by turbines,
riding on mountain wakes
and taming the waves
of crowded blizzard clouds.

I've been grounded long enough.
I'll take flight and action.
The other racers can't seem to catch you
but planes aren't fueled by passion.
Track Name: Noah McLaughlin - Hey Joe
lyrics
------

wake up get out of bed
have a cup and tilt your head
take a sip another one
sugar cream your motor runs

hey joe i am a awake now
you have my vow thank you friend
hey joe what is this feeling
my fingers tingling
i think i love you

after lunch another cup
caffeine always helps me sup
take it black with a smoke
gotta to keep my fires stoked

hey joe you are my bright star
you warm my heart every day
hey joe you roast my insides
you make my eyes bright
i think i love you

i feel i am floating
i feel i am flying
i feel i am letting go
in the air soaring
upon the waves crashing
oh will you help me joe

hey joe don't want no mocha
no chai latte just grind it fine
hey joe this fine aroma
it transports me
you're all mine
Track Name: Jon Eric - Friday February 13th
On the eve of St. Valentine
I believed, with your hand to mine,
You'd whisper those words in my ear
"I'm yours, and how good it is
Of course, that's how Cupid is"
Instead I went single that year.

My bundle delivered
I hunched and I shivered
Against the last wintery chill
So drained of my every want
I feigned being nonchalant
And tried to sit perfectly still

You must have thought I was crazy or dumb
To think, at thirteen, that I'd met the one
You were right if you did
I was quite a dumb kid
So I tried to get rid of my love

That was way back in middle school
It's amazing to think of you
And no longer feel the same way
It's true that I'm over you
But I do have one hope for you
I hope that you're happy today
Track Name: Trader Jack - You Can Be My Joey Ramone
You can be my Joey Ramone. Break my heart just the way I like it. Turn it on, so strongly intoned. I'm not gonna lie.
It's hard to be in love with Corin Tucker.
She'll probably always be with someone other than me.
But Do you think you wanna?
Yea I think I wanna.
Do you think you wanna?
Yea I think I wanna.
Do you think you wanna?
Yeah I think I wanna.
Yeah I really wanna.
Singing along to your record in my car but I'd rather be where you are now. Baby.
I may not be real rock and roll fun but I can fake it with the best of them now. Baby.
""
I wanna pinch your cheeks and stroll the streets; we'll wear hoods to hide from the punk-rock-razzi, Baby.
Take you to museums or go shopping, you can max out all my cards.
Baby you should be my valentine for one day, or forever. I sigh and sigh and sigh for Corin Tucker.
Track Name: Caleb Hines - To The Administrator Of Extraplanetary Research
To the Administrator of Extraplanetary Research,

I wish you a "Happy Valentines Day", for that is what the inhabitants of this planet call today. It appears to be another of their so-called "Holy Days" although I have yet to find an individual who can relate to me any information about the eponymous figure, St. Valentine. Rather, it is claimed to be a day dedicated to public displays of the emotion which they call "love". However, in this respect, their language seems to be significantly deficient in nuance. Depending upon context, this term can be used to describe a baffling array of favorable relationships with other entities, ranging from one's mate, to one's siblings or parents, to one's animal companion, and even to one's food.

The universally recognized symbol of this day is a stylized figure which they refer to as a "heart" although in actuality, it bears no similarity to the anatomical organ. Indeed, it more closely resembles the appearance of a leaf. The depiction of an element of the cardiovascular system appears to be motivated by the physiological and hormonal responses triggered by the aforementioned emotion. Given that their blood is red, due to it's high iron content, it is logical that various shades of this color,are featured prominently on this day. Another widely used symbolic element, which they call a "cupid", is truly inexplicable. This is a depiction of a very young juvenile with avian wings sprouting from it's back, and versed in the primitive combat skill of archery. I do not know what conclusions to draw from this disturbing observation.

As was the case with their previous holy-day, celebration involves the giving of gifts (though on a smaller scale), and the shared consumption of non-nutritional substances. An especially popular gift is the detached reproductive structures of plants, which can be artificially sustained in a vessel of water. It is conceivable that the inevitable withering of these structures is intended to symbolize that percentage of mating bonds which are terminated before death. In addition, participants give one another pieces of cardboard with various platitudes inscribed upon them. An oft-ingested item on this day is a brown substance comprised of a mixture of fat and sugar, flavored with the extract of certain beans. They call this substance "chocolate", and I hypothesize that it contains chemicals which amplify the effect of the emotions in the brain, although further research would be needed to ascertain this.

As you can see from this and my previous reports, these beings are highly impulsive and illogical. It is my recommendation that we continue to abstain from contact at this time. May you live long and prosper.
Track Name: FauX - Back Down To You
I want to say how much you mean
From the bottom of my heart
I know we have our problems
But I hope we never part

You're the only thing I need
To keep me alive
As cliché as it sounds
I need you to survive

Mother Earth
I know that we're hard on you
Digging for stuff in you
Not paying attention to
The way you change
When we're treating you bad
And it makes me quite mad
So I want to say to you
I think we need brought back down to you

I'm sorry that we fill you up
With stuff we throw away
I understand if you feel
Like you are being betrayed

I apologise on the behalf
Of everyone on you
And we wanna put it right
We can start anew
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - A Letter To Bernie
Bernie, man I love ya but you gotta help me out
I'm stuck behind these prison walls just like a reg'lar lout
'Course, you know I love you, buddy, you're a paragon of class
But my true love's shooting arrows into somebody's chapped ass

They say "Hey, Cupid, pull back that bow"
But what do all those idiots know?
I'm bringing you all love, but inattention is my flaw
'Cause all those freakin' arrows got me collared by the law

I just love shooting my arrows into arms, butts, necks and face
But now I'm on the news and villified by Nancy Grace
The folks I put together hate me, say I give them all the creeps
And now I'm stuck inside this cell, hands covering my cheeks

They say see Cupid, everyone they start to flee
They scream and double over - Took an Arrow To the Knee.
I'm bringing you all my love, but inattention is my flaw
'Cause all those freakin' arrows got me collared by the law

I don't get it. Why is everyone making such a big deal bout this. Hey buddy - watch it! I got my eye on you! You too! You know - you could lose a little weigh. You know, I think you two might look good together. But I'm not videoing it.

So, Bernie, pal, please help me, know that you're my only hope
I can't live where I'm so terrified of just dropping the soap
You're the world's best bail bondsman, and Its time to pay the piper
Get me the freak outta here cause I gotta change this diaper!
Track Name: Wait What - She Just Wouldn't Understand (Shadow)
My girlfriend's breath is sweet.
But yours is so much sweeter baby.
You have the breath of well- flossed angels.
Angels who solely eat Skittles.

My girlfriend's boobs are big.
But yours are so much bigger, baby.
They look like they can hold a can of paint.
I doubt that we will ever know for sure.

Don't tell my girlfriend that I told you this.
She would get pissed.
She just wouldn't understand,
Not just because she barely speaks the language.

My girlfriend's teeth are white,
But yours are so much straighter, baby.
Your teeth aren't super sharp or pointy.
I bet you blow up balloons without them popping.

Don't tell my girlfriend that last month we kissed.
She would get pissed.
She just wouldn't understand.
She's still mad that the babysitter's pregnant.

My girlfriend's soup is good.
But yours is so much better, baby.
She puts weird ingredients in it.
Like capers, dill, and what the hell is arsenic?

She puts weird ingredients in it.
Like capers, dill, and what the hell is arsenic?
I'll call you soon when I'm not feeling so damn sick.
Track Name: Boffo Yux Dudes - Be My Valentine (Settle For Me) (Shadow)
On this Valentine's day
I send you my love
You're the foot in my sock
I'm the fingers in your glove

You've know I've loved you honey
I can't stand to be alone
So why'd you leave me when you know
That I can tap your phone?

Baby, be my valentine
It's my deepest wish
I don't care who you're loving now
I don't care who you're with

I'll do anything for you
I'm the one you need
Treat me like a dog, honey
Make me open up and bleed

I know you've got another love
Well, babe, I have one too
She helps me while away the hours
but she's nothing next to you

I know one day you wanted kids
I've already got a set!
'Course I'd dump 'em in a New York Second
If you'd rather just have a pet

Baby, be my valentine
Fulfill my fondest wishes
Just say the word and your current beau
Will be sleeping with the fishes

I'll do anything for you
What else can I say?
For you I'd walk thru broken glass
And gargle with Ben-Gay

Bridge chant:
Settle for me, baby
Settle for me
Settle for me, baby
Settle for me

Well, I tried to set up cameras
in your home and in your car
I followed you around
to the park and to the bar

I sent you gifts and candies
And a piece of my big toe
I'd send you something bigger
But I can't mail a...well, you know...

Baby, be my valentine
It's my deepest wish
I'm the lumps in your gravy
You're the potato in my knish

I'm the varnish in your oatmeal
You're the ring around my fist
And I wish I'd known my schoolboy crush
Would get you so damn pissed

Bridge chant repeat/solo and out:
Settle for me, baby
Settle for me
Settle for me, baby
Settle for me (etc)
Track Name: Drei Viertel Drei - Goodbye (Shadow)
Every year
I put away all my fear
All my feelings, in one card for you

I never fail to write it,
I just can't send it off

Don‘t know what‘s different
Don‘t know what‘s changed
… and now i'm sending you this card

This is my goodbye
Today I'm saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever

Not alone
He is here I‘m long gone
Putting all my feelings, in one card for you

This year I also wrote it
But I just sent it off

Don‘t know what‘s different
Don‘t know what‘s changed
… and still i'm sending you this card

This is my goodbye
This is saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever

A letter in the mail
No sender, no name
Inside just one line
„I‘m sorry“

This is my goodbye
Today I'm saying never
Your lies would never fly
Not now, not ever
Track Name: Emperor Gum - <3 (Shadow)
We are Emperor Gum and if you don't know about Scott Pilgrim this song won't make any sense!

Woo-hoo!
Here we go!

Saw you working at the video store
I'll be kind and rewind
You counter walk out the door

A redhead on fire, your expression like ice
Hang out with me and I'll treat you like a princess

Come on!

Kim Pine, this Valentines
Say you'll be mine
Let's burn some time

Watch out!
Yeah!
Pick it up!
2-3-4 go!

You're beating a pulse into my brain
Snaring my heart with your freckles and fame

Skip the wine
Maybe a coffee or two for a table
Take me in change

Kim Pine, be my Valentine
Leave bygones behind
Yeah, we'll be fine

Fin!
Track Name: Menage A Tune - Fractal Choices (Shadow)
Two Roads
Diverged in a golden wood
All uncertain, I paused and stood
And tried to see the better way
Two Roads Two roads
Then I saw that there weren’t two
There were four, there were eight then more
Each would lead to a hundred score
I couldn’t choose!
Ev’ry choice killed a million dreams
So I stood there, frozen, scared
Hid my head and never dared
Never took another step
Along the road.

Flip a coin, make a choice make a sound use your voice
Take a step move your ass don’t let all these moments pass
Eeny meenie miney moe
Don’t just wait here in the road
Cut the cards, roll the dice
Curtain one for looking nice
Tempus fugit if you blink time to act and not just think
Lick a finger, see which way the wind blows

Lick a finger, see which way the wind blows
Let yourself go...
Don’t let the middle of the road
Become the ending of your life

Two Roads
A choice in each breath I take
Every motion I choose to make
It’s hard to see the better way
Two Roads Two roads
Does the card bear a heart or spade?
I should give it but I’m afraid
What if my love will be betrayed”
Why can’t I move?!
Nothing ventured means nothing gain’d
But I stand here, frozen, scared
Raise my head but, will I dare?
To take that first or final step
Along the road.
Track Name: Menage A Tune - My Best Friend (Shadow)
I'd like to tell the world how great you are to know!
You've been my friend and helper
Teaching me to grow
You've helped me up when I was down
Got me to sing instead of frown
I am so glad that you're around!
You're my best friend. :o)

I can't remember when you weren't by my side,
And if I made mistakes, you'd say, "At least you tried."
When I was frightened in the night
You always made things feel alright
And my days are twice as bright 'cause you're around.

BRIDGE:
So I will sing you this song
And let the world know that we're together
Sing you this song
To tell ya what you mean to me!

Some days I might forget to tell you that I care
And take for granted that you always will be there
But if I do I hope you know
I didn't mean to mess up so
I want you everyplace I go
You're my best friend!
Track Name: Rosalind - My Favorite Time Of The Week (Shadow)
CHORUS

I only want to let you know, how much I need you so
Getting ready for our weekly date: got my DVR set for 8
You smile at me, who wouldn’t see. Even through the screen it seems
You were meant for me

It was love at first sight, your flowing hair and beautiful eyes
My heart fluttered and I couldn’t breathe when you turned and stared at me
And though she tried to steal your heart, I knew that she was just a character part
And she wouldn’t last long past the pilot episode

Still, she broke your heart, but you were strong, and I was there cheering you along
I knew next week there’d be someone new, but for now I dreamed I could be with yo

CHORUS

We grew together as the weeks went by, I watched you fight, I watched you cry
Sometimes, you’d flash those green eyes at me, and I blushed even though there was no one to see
I read every single interview, and voted a thousand times for you
All of my backgrounds show your beautiful face

Every year I have to worry though: will the producers bring back your show?
I just watch, over and over again, hoping that you’ll never end

CHORUS

On this Valentine’s Day, I hope you’ll think of me
Reading my letters, I know you'll feel the same way
We're apart, I can't just sit in bed.
I guess I’ll go out with my husband instead
It’s okay, he knows you’re in my head
