about

My 2015 Valentine's Day "card" for my sweet bride. I have done a yearly Valentine's song for the past several years. Two are on albums ("Real Love" and "I Still See My Bride")

This one struck me as sweet enough to serve as a single, so dish it up! Maybe it's worth a buck to share with YOUR Sweetheart!?!
After all, it lasts forever and while it melts her heart, it won't melt in your hand.

lyrics

We've been together for a while
And I have to say
Every day you make me smile
And now it's Valentine's Day

We'll go to dinner and we'll celebrate
Cuddle by the fireplace and stay up late
Warming up until we just can't wait
On Valentine's Day

But I'm worried that in fact
You'll grow tired of me
I want a little no-cut contract
a short-term guarantee

I'm not asking you to sacrifice
not asking you change your ways
I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

(Chorus)
Ninety Nine Valentine's Days
Sounds about right to me
Ninety Nine Valentine's Days
By then we'll clearly see

If you don't love me after ninety nine
We can go our separate ways
I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

Maybe your worried about commitment
I've been thinking 'bout that too
But you've always been here for me
And I've always been there for you

So tonight let's make a vow
to always work things out some how
and still be celebrating years from now
On Valentine's Day

And if those ninety nine are great
And if you agree
I willing to negotiate
for all eternity

I'm not asking you to sacrifice
not asking you change your ways
I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

(Chorus)
Ninety Nine Valentine's Days
Sounds about right to me
Ninety Nine Valentine's Days
By then we'll clearly see

If you don't love me after ninety nine
We can call it just a phase
I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

I'm not asking you to stay forever
just ninety nine Valentine's Days

ninety nine Valentine's Days
