Sometimes she fades away
She's seen too many movies
Killing enough rainy days
With nothing else to do

We'll make our escape
Like the end of Casablanca
Taking off from a dark runway
With nothing left to lose

The sun is shining somewhere
Somewhere far away
I could sell everything and go there
Just to hear her say, listen my

Valentine, say the line
We can be famous for tonight
Superstar, there you are
Bigger than life in black and white
Valentine, say the line
We can just leave it all behind
Say the line, my valentine

Just like roman holiday
A princess and a schemer
Killing an ordinary day
Any way they choose

Back in Hollywood
Convertibles and palm trees
Matinee movie-stars and sunscreen
I wonder if it's true

The sun is rising somewhere
Brighter every day
We'll forget everything and go there
Nothing's in the way

Listen my valentine, say the line
We can be famous for tonight
Superstar, there you are
Bigger than life in black and white
Valentine, say the line
We can just leave it all behind
Say the line, my valentine
Leave it all behind

Sometimes she starts to fade
With starry eyes she tells me
"I want a place in the sun"
She's not the only one

The sun is shining somewhere
Somewhere far away
If we just pack our bags and go there
Everything will change

Valentine, say the line
We can be famous for tonight
Superstar, there you are
Bigger than life in black and white
Valentine, say the line
We can just leave it all behind
Say the line, my valentine

We can just leave it all behind
We can just leave it all behind
We can just leave it all behind
We can just leave it all behind

Valentine

    this is an excellent song...

    it's kinda like he's telling this girl, that she could stop being unhappy, if she is with him. If she does go with him, it will be perfect, just like in the movies...

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
