"Black Valentine" as written by Vincent Paul Degiorgio, Wieger E. Hoogendorp, David C. Schreurs, Jan P.k. Van Wieringen and Robin Veldman....
Who needs a captain on a love ship?
Someone with no clue of the destination due bow
Ain’t that a trip?

Who needs a diamond on a hand of stone?
Someone with the hurt who couldn’t make it work,
A trophy because you slipped

Love can’t conquer anything
If it’s lost without a trace
You might be tough, you might even be strong
But not when you’re in this place

Secret lovers, get lost in the secrets they tell
They make lovers blind when they cover every inch of their lies
Secret lovers, it’s just your place of mind
A smoke and some wine is the life of the Black Valentine

Who needs a journey on a runaway train?
Your ticket isn’t worth half of what it hurts
When heart beats overwork

Who needs redemption from a guiltless crime?
Someone caries dreams from scene to scene
'Til they tear apart your mind

Love can’t conquer anything
If it’s hurting in the deep
You’ll be awake, you’ll twist your fate
That’s not someone you should keep

Secret lovers, get lost in the secrets they tell
They make lovers blind when they cover every inch of their lies
Secret lovers, it’s just your place of mind
A smoke and some wine is the life of the Black Valentine

This is their demand for another night they spend in self-conversation
It’s a will they came to pose in a letter left they’ve composed
To repeat the situation
They lie in a loop

Secret lovers, get lost in the secrets they tell
They make lovers blind when they cover every inch of their lies
Secret lovers, it’s just your place of mind
A smoke and some wine is the life of the Black Valentine

    General CommentI had heard this song before, but it wasn't one of my favourite until I heard it live in concert. I was taken back by the magical atmosphere her voice and musicians put into it!

    My OpinionI see a dozen or more thoughts; some connected to each other, some not. Its not a single story but it is a series of statements. There is no train of thought.
    CARO sings as always; perfect. But I can't follow her on this song.
    The song, so well sung. But there is no way to connect the dozen or so sentences. SO THE SONG MAKES NO SENSE despite her wonderful voice and the well conducted orchestra.
    She has superior ability to construct the delivery. It is only by the selection of the words that the song will never be a hit. The words keep it from being a hit. Change the words ; have a hit.
    But she sings so well.

    Love what you do Caro
