That day again, james robert

it was high noon on valentine's day
and all through the house
there wasn't much astirring
save maybe a mouse

oh, i had loves aplenty
for most of my years
but i ran faster than they
with a case of the "fears"

i was looking for something
only i could give
in the self-love arena
i leaked like a sieve 

mother teresa herself
would have been at a loss
if we had gone acourtin
she would've took to the sauce

oh hell, i had my moments
maybe more than my share
i loved not wisely nor too well
when i dared to venture there

if it is better to have loved and lost
than to never have loved at all
than i am here to tell everyone
that it was well worth the fall
