Valentine ©2004 Millman/Page

I met a girl thought I was in love
We made plans but she didn't show up
I bought her a rose 'cause I thought she was something special
But when I sat down about a quarter of eight
By nine I knew that she was more than late
Maybe she was lost or maybe she'd just forgotten

And now she'll never be my valentine
She'll never be my dandelion
Never be my only one
She'll never be my kiss goodnight
Never be my Miss Delightful
Never be my buttercup
Because she stood me up

I think back to the night we met
Her long brown hair had a touch of red
She told me her name and we had us a conversation
Yeah but when her dark blue flowery silk kimono dress
Was the first thing to make me delirious
Sooner or later she was nothing more than a daydream

And now she'll never be my valentine
Never be my dandelion
Never be my only one
She'll never be my kiss goodnight
Never be my Miss Delightful
Never be my buttercup
Because she stood me up

I wasn't lookin' to commit a crime
I was only lookin' for a valentine

It was the 14th day of the second month
Everybody out to have a little fun
Some people wishin' that they coulda been there with someone
She was drinkin' beer and I was drinkin' wine
I couldn't help but hope to hell that she'd be mine
In 24 hours I was kickin' myself for hopin'

And now she'll never be my valentine
She'll never be my dandelion
Never be my only one
She'll never be my kiss goodnight
Never be my Miss Delightful
Never be my buttercup
Because she stood me up
She stood me up!
