It's official - Valentine's day is almost upon us. If you know me, you'll know that I'm not the most romantic - I'm pretty useless when it comes to being lovey-dubby. So needless to say I don't care much for this 'holiday'. That said, me and Ben do like to at least go out for a meal and exchange cards. Cards - now that's something that I like to think I am good at.
Perfect thing to write in a valentine's card? Song verses! You can't go wrong, seriously. They aren't cheesy (well, not much) and you'll always be able to find one that fits the way you feel about someone. If you aren't very articulate in explaining your feelings, or you're just lost for what to write in that 'relationship defining' card - lyrics are definitely the way to go.
Here's my top 10 song lyrics to write in a card:
1. My whole heart will be yours forever. This is a beautiful start to a lifelong love letter. // I Choose You - Sara Bareilles
2. Like a soul mate you're my penguin. // Penguin - Christina Perri
3. I'll follow you into the park, through the jungle, through the dark. Girl, I've never loved one like you. // Home - Edward Sharpe + The Magnetic Zeros
4. Your words are inked on my skin, the marks of incredible love. // Incredible Love - Ingrid Michaelson
5. That I'm crazy about you. You are in every single dream, and I'm thinking about you. // Champagne Kisses - Jessie Ware
6. Your warm whispers, let me drown in a pool of you. // Warm Whispers - Missy Higgins
7. Come away with me and we'll kiss on a mountaintop. Come away with me and I'll never stop loving you. // Come Away With Me - Norah Jones
8. To be anymore than all I am would be a lie. I'm so full of love, I could burst apart and start to cry. // Today - Jefferson Airplane
9. I will love you with all of the love that I have, even if that means there's none left for me. // Underworld USA - Cold Cave
10. I’m tripping over my own thoughts, but baby I really like you a lot. // Upside Down - Tori Kelly
Hope this helps!
