Another Valentine's
Another Book
Thrown At My Head

Another Valentine's
Another book thrown at my head
I duck the bottles
Hear the plates
Cascade around me
My shirts and pants
Are on the lawn
Some dog is chewing on
My boots

I'm glad to see you, too!

All the paintings upside down
You can hear us all over town
Have mercy, darling
Not the stereo
Crash Bam Boom
Goes the living room
I think that's it
There's nothing left
Let's share a beer
Looks like the TV is still ok

We can't board up the window
The wind's howling through the house
So we huddle under a blanket
We got two channels
And we still got us

Until tomorrow
