New Song!: "Yet Another Year Without A Valentine"

Yeah, yeah, I know it's closer to Christmas than it is to Valentine's Day, but the songs come when they come.  They aren't checking a calendar.  I recorded a slower version of this, but I liked the faster one.  Maybe some country artist will cover this; it sounds like it would make a good country song.  The lyrics are below.  It's the same deal as always.  If you like a song, then feel free to cover it if you're in a band or whatnot.  I love to hear covers of my songs, so please let me know about your version.  If you start making money, then send me a check/we can work out a deal.  Similarly, if you want to use a song for your Youtube video or whatnot, then just let me know.  It's usually fine by me unless it's a commercial product or whatnot (and then it's likely fine as well--I just want my cut).  Find out first though.  Write me at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.

First there's Bert, who's recently divorced.
Actually, it's been a few years, but, of course,
it doesn't seem that way to him, and he can't seem to get back on that horse.
And as for why, well, he's still stuck on his ex.
They get along swell for the kids, so what the hex?
She'll never put out again though; she just likes to text.

Here comes February and yet another year without a valentine.

Second, there's Heather who's an early widow.
And ever since he died, life doesn't seem to have the same glow.
Her friends tell her she has to move on; tell her something she doesn't already know.
And she's just tried the latest dating app,
but she's decided she'd much rather be taking a nap.
She wonders if anything could ever fill this gap.

And the only flowers she'll see are the ones in stores.
And he's got no one to buy candy for.
And her mother is the only one to send a card.
And he thinks that love really shouldn't be this hard.

Third, there's Jamie, who's feeling fine.
Doesn't need anyone to ask, "Will you be mine?"
Isn't waiting on anyone's invitation to dine.
Couldn't imagine putting up with someone else's bullshit.
Is not hoping to find the one and say this is it.
Been single so long, doesn't want to quit.
