Valentines Day Massacre


It was back in 1981
I was waiting on a bus
You came up to me and you said, hello
I think it was a Thursday
A few weeks later I moved in with you
Into your apartment over on 4th Ave
Our first date was a crosstown bus 
Our second was later that night down at Joey’s Bar
A couple of drinks and a jukebox singalong
Turns out your favorite songs were the same as mine
I was figuring on a one night stand
It's lasted for three years
St Valentine’s day massacre
Seven men were killed
Add one more to the list, now baby
This love is gonna be the death of me
One morning last week I was sipping my coffee
Just trying to figure out how I had gotten here
I guess I got used to having somebody around
You liked waking up with me there
This hasn't always been great but it’s certainly never been bad
Thinking about it, I guess it's just been really, really good
St Valentine's day massacre
Seven men were killed
Add one more to the list, now baby
This love is gonna be the death of me
It was back in 1929
Seven men were shot
They were mobsters and they were fully armed
Confronted and killed without a fight
I guess this love is kind of like that slaying
I never saw you coming, I just fell into you without a fight
St Valentine's day massacre
Seven men were killed
Add one more to that list, now baby
This love is gonna be the death of me
This love is gonna be the death of me
This love is gonna be, oh you will be
The death of me
