you must decide to risk your heart

a few years back, i wrote a series of posts around valentine's day that expressed my cynicism about the commercialism of february 14, and how it should really just be another day. i still believe that every day should be a day that you adore your valentine, but my state of mind is a little different these days. i suppose it's all a matter of perspective. maybe every day can still be valentine's day, but february 14th can be just a little more special than the rest.

as i have documented on sand is overrated to some degree of familiarity, the journey to find the place that i always wanted to be was a difficult one, marred by wrong turns and unfortunate choices. two years ago, as i wrote those earlier posts, i was in the middle of that journey, frustrated and growing cynical. my change of heart from then to now, of course, can be directly attributed to the fact that i never lost my resolve to try, to risk my heart. and when we were both in places in our lives when we were ready for each other, she finally came and changed me back. today is not february 14th, but happy valentine's day, sweetie.

mint royale : "don't falter"
from the lp on the ropes (fontana mca, 2001)

i used to feel so sad
and think too slow and drink too fast
life had me blue and black
till someone came and changed me back

now you see life
these colors shimmering around you
you must decide
to risk your heart for love to find you

hey, don't falter
you know we ought to be together
strange, i saw ya, i sorta knew it was forever
please, stay with me
and never miss a chance to kiss me
babe, i love ya
when you're with me it's always summer

now everything is fine
because he is officially mine
and as long as we've got each other
it's gonna be officially summer
you're hypnotised
by these colours all around you
you must decide
to risk your heart for love to find you

hey, don't falter
you know we ought to be together
strange, i saw ya, i sorta knew it was forever
please, stay with me
and never miss a chance to kiss me
babe, i love ya
when you're with me it's always summer

it's only right
to have a little love around you
you must decide
to risk your heart
