"Valentine" completed

I added a second chorus section that is not in the music Medel sent. Apart from that it's a perfect fit. Maybe except the little word "while" in the third verse which would require an added pickup note. I prefer "while you would have your freedom" to "while you'd have your freedom" which would match perfectly but to me sound somewhat clumsy. If need be the first word might simply be omitted.


you never send me flowers
and you never give me sweets
when you're on a business trip
you never think of me

not even on the 14th
will there be a greeting card
don't you ever fear you'd lost
the key to my poor heart

Valentine, my lover
each time that you're here
your mind
seems to roam in other spheres

Valentine, my lover
it's your special day
your chance
to live up to your name

you're taking me for granted
and that I would wait for you
(while) you would have your freedom
doing what you love to do

not even on the 14th
do you spare a second thought
for what I am feeling
or what my last days have brought

Valentine, my lover
each time that you're here
your mind
seems to roam in other spheres

Valentine, my lover
it's your special day
your chance
to live up to your name

dear Valentine
can't you see
if you don't change
you'll lose me
for good

dear Valentine
can't you see
if you don't change
you'll lose me
for good
