Soooooooo … in the spirit of love and, in preparation for valentine’s day guys, today MCM post is one of my all time favourite songs by one of my all time favourite artists, Kina Grannis, and the title is …wait for it … Valentine!!!! No, I’m not kidding, the song is actually titled valentine. “Could I be any more cliche, right?” *eyes rolling, whatever man, I’m happy about love and valentine’s day, period.

N.B- It has nothing to do with me being in love, or having some sort of perfect relationship … far from it, even. Lol, I just thought I should drop that for the … *coughs*… haters.

I’m especially particular about this song, and have been for a while now, because it does say that valentine’s day might be seen as arbitrary, but i’ll make it a good excuse and pour all the loving I  can. I don’t necessarily want the ring  or any of those fancy things everyone is on about, I just love you and want you to know it, and so just because I love you, and you make me happy, I’ll celebrate and appreciate what we’ve got. Oh boy! Does it get any better than that?

So guys … Pour all the loving you can on your loved ones this week, and even on those that ordinarily will not fit into that category. Love without expecting anything back. That’s the best kind.

Make sure you click on the link i.e the title of the song, so you can listen while reading the lyrics. I find that songs could be a bit long and boring, if you’re just reading only the lyrics for the first time. So listen, get the feel for yourself, read the lyrics, and let me know how much you loved it, in the comments section.

 

Valentine by Kina Grannis 

Love, it’s a special day
We should celebrate and appreciate
That you and me found something pretty neat
And I know some say this day is arbitrary

But, it’s a good excuse
Put our love to use, baby
I know what to do, baby
I, I will love you
I’ll love you
I’ll love you

Love, I don’t need those things
I don’t need no ring
I don’t need anything
But you and me, ’cause in your company
I feel happy, oh, so happy and complete

And it’s a good excuse
Put our love to use, baby
I know what to do, baby
I, I will love you
I’ll love you
I’ll love you

Yeah, it’s a good excuse
Put our love to use, baby
I know what to do, baby
I, I will love you
I’ll love you
I’ll love you

So, won’t you be my honeybee?
Giving me kisses all the time
Be mine
Be my Valentine

So, won’t you be my honeybee?
Giving sweet kisses all the time
Be mine
Be my Valentine

Oh oh oh oh oh
Be my Valentine

With so much love, you cannot possibly imagine
