"Valentine" as written by Paul Westerberg, Tommy Stinson and Chris Mars....
Well you wish upon a star that turns into a plane
And I guess that's right on par
Who's left to blame?

If you were a pill
I'd take a handful at my will
And I'd knock you back with something sweet and strong
Plenty of times you wake up in February make-up
Like the moon and the morning star you're gone

[Chorus:]

Tonight makes love to all your kind
Tomorrow's makin' Valentines

Hey you pop up in this old place
So sick and so refined (divine?)
Are you strung out on some face?
Well I know it ain't mine

If you were a pill, I'd take a handful at my will,
And I'd knock you back with something sweet and strong
Trouble keeping your head up when you're hungry and you're fed up,
Like a moon and a lone star you're gone

[Chorus:]

If you were a pill, I'd take a handful at my will,
And I'd knock you back with something sweet as wine
Yesterday was theirs to say, this is their world and their time
Well if tonight belongs to you, tomorrow's mine

[Chorus:Repeat x2]

    General CommentHow can you not love a song that has an opening line of "When you wish upon a star that turns into a plane" and also the line "If you were a pill, I'd take a handful at my will"

    General CommentOne of Westerberg's best. The opening line is classic. Then "If you were a pill I'd take a handful at my will and I'd knock you back with something sweet and strong"? Are you kidding? It does not get better than that ever.
