She sends me blue valentines All the way from Philadelphia To mark the anniversary Of someone that I used to be And it feels just like there's A warrant out for my arrest Got me checkin' in my rearview mirror And I'm always on the run That's why I changed my name And I didn't think you'd ever find me here To send me blue valentines Like half forgotten dreams Like a pebble in my shoe As I walk these streets And the ghost of your memory Is the thistle in the kiss And the burglar that can break a roses neck It's the tatooed broken promise That I hide beneath my sleeve And I see you every time I turn my back She sends me blue valentines Though I try to remain at large They're insisting that our love Must have a eulogy Why do I save all of this madness In the nightstand drawer There to haunt upon my shoulders Baby I know I'd be luckier to walk around everywhere I go With a blind and broken heart That sleeps beneath my lapel She sends me my blue valentines To remind me of my cardinal sin I can never wash the guilt Or get these bloodstains off my hands And it takes a lot of whiskey To take this nightmares go away And I cut my bleedin' heart out every night And I die a little more on each St. Valentines day Remember that I promised I would Write you These blue valentines Blue valentines Blue valentines
