St Patricks Day!

Standard

Here comes the cold
Break out the winter clothes
And find a love to call your own
You – enter you
Your cheeks a shade of pink
And the rest of you in powder blue

Who knows what will be
But I’ll make you this guarantee

No way November will see our goodbye
When it comes to December it’s obvious why
No one wants to be alone at Christmas time

In the dark, on the phone
You tell me the names of your brothers
And your favorite colors
I’m learning you
And when it snows again
We’ll take a walk outside
And search the sky
Like children do
I’ll say to you

No way November will see our goodbye
When it comes to December it’s obvious why
No one wants to be alone at Christmas time
And come January we’re frozen inside
Making new resolutions a hundred times
February, won’t you be my valentine?

And we’ll both be safe ’til St. Patrick’s Day

We should take a ride tonight around the town
and look around at all the beautiful houses
something in the way that blue lights on a black night
can make you feel more
everybody, it seems to me, just wants to be
just like you and me

No one wants to be alone at Christmas time
Come January we’re frozen inside
Making new resolutions a hundred times
February, won’t you be my valentine?

And if our always is all that we gave
And we someday take that away
I’ll be alright if it was just ’til St. Patrick’s Day

– John Mayer – St. Patricks Day!

I am wondering why I didn’t pick this song earlier into my liking of JM songs… I think it’s one of the best contemporary lyrics I have heard in all my life :-)!! Especially the main chorus and the second stanza :-)! Amazing!! Simply super dooper

    Doesn’t register with you?

  3. Then what happens to the rest of the year ??? Anyhoo .. as i said .. didnt connect with it .. talking abt amazing contemporary lyrics (and im sure PS would back me here)check this baby out .. it starts a whole freckin movie in your head –

    Step one you say we need to talk
    He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
    He smiles politely back at you
    You stare politely right on through
    Some sort of window to your right

    As he goes left and you stay right
    Between the lines of fear and blame
    And you begin to wonder why you came

    Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night

    Had I known how to save a life

    Let him know that you know best
    Cause after all you do know best
    Try to slip past his defense
    Without granting innocence
    Lay down a list of what is wrong
    The things you’ve told him all along

    And pray to God he hears you
    And pray to God he hears you

    Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night
    Had I known how to save a life

    As he begins to raise his voice
    You lower yours and grant him one last choice
    Drive until you lose the road
    Or break with the ones you’ve followed
    He will do one of two things
    He will admit to everything

    Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
    And you’ll begin to wonder why you came

    Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
    Somewhere along in the bitterness
    And I would have stayed up with you all night

    Had I known how to save a life
    How to save a life, The Fray
