ST. VALENTINE'S DAY 1978 (BLACK HEARTH) (Kate & Anna Mcgarrigle) Kate & Anna Mcgarrigle Red running shoes with crumbling soles Clashed with pink pearls 'round my love wanton soul My body was attired in jute, jean and satin I waited for Valentine The day past quickly, it was soon afternoon Not long to wait for a chance to swoon At my door there came a knock Left a smudge for a mark He was gone But he gave me his black heart Black heart tied with a ribbon narrow Now thoroughly framed hangs from the piano To the right just a bit above my middle C And might as well be inside of me Red hearts and red Black heart is true Inviolate noble and new The one who must free you is frequently blue And can't find the key and has no clue If I never found these Would it be so bad You'd gather dust and I'd go mad Trying to hard to find the notes To make that beautiful chord And make the bastards fall with lumps in their throats Poor little muse cut from a paper Fading fast as our lives taper Your edges are curled You've lost your heart shape My hair's gone grey There was no escape Red hearts are red Black heart is true Inviolate, noble and new My body was tired, so much for passion Bye bye Valentine (Contributed by =Ae= - January 2010)
