happy happy - joy joy... where have I heard that before...hmm...

"There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved."- George Sand
Then again... what does a woman who called herself George (were Dubya and his daddio named after... her?) and had such a disastrous "greatest love of her life" type of relation going throughout her entire eccentric existence... what does such a woman, thus, really know about anything...? But I digress...

On the subject of love though, some would-be money-makers recognize St-Valentine's Day as the the ideal trap for suckers out there that it really is... Romantic fools abound and there are plenty of them loose out there - and they know it. (Not to take it too badly, folks - I am afflicted too - yes, I am an incurable romantic... but a smart consumer!). And so, what do I find upon logging to one of my usual news sources (affiliated to msn.com)... This topic and this link...

Mine was brief and to the point: "Dream on, lava lamp heads!".
Blessings!

Anything For You - Lyrics (by Evanescence)

I'd give anything to give me to you
Can you forget the world that you thought you knew
If you want me,
Come and find me
Nothing's stopping you so please release me

I'll believe
All your lies
Just pretend you love me
Make believe
Close your eyes
I'll be anything for you

Have you left to make me feel anymore
There's only you and everyday I need more
If you want me
Come and find me
I'll do anything you say just tell me

I'll believe
All your lies
Just pretend you love me
Make believe
Close your eyes
I'll be anything for you

I'll believe
All your lies
Just pretend you love me
Make believe
Close your eyes
I'll be anything for you

Anything for you
All without your hurt inside
Will never, never die
I'll be everything you need

I'll believe
All your lies
Just pretend you love me
Make believe
Close your eyes
I'll be anything for you

Crazy Lyrics (by Icehouse)

I've got a pocket
full of holes
head in the clouds
the king of fools
you've got a ribbon of rainbows
the sun in your eyes
burning through
could be I'm happy and sad
could be I'm losing my head
over you

well, you've gotta be crazy, baby
to want a guy like me
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

So if I'm dreaming
don't wake me tonight
if this is all wrong
I don't want it right
'cause you're the one sure thing
when I get lost in the game
once again
hey, I'm a lucky guy
without a reason and I
don't understand

well, you've gotta be crazy, baby
to want a guy like me
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

Well, there must be some kind of mistake
to give your heart away
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

I've got a pocket
full of holes
head in the clouds
the king of fools
you've got a ribbon of rainbows
the sun in your eyes
burning through
could be I'm happy and sad
could be I'm losing my head
over you

well, you've gotta be crazy, baby
to want a guy like me
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

Well, there must be some kind of mistake
to give your heart away
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

well, you've gotta be crazy, baby
to want a guy like me
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

Well, there must be some kind of mistake
to give your heart away
yeah, you've gotta be out of your mind
crazy

well you've gotta be crazy baby
to want a guy like me
yeah, you've gotta be crazy, baby.....

Say A Prayer Lyrics (by Cyndi Lauper)

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon
say a prayer

So, what are you weaving there marionette
keepin' your balance by a single thread
keepin' your heart strings tight and pure
all you can muster and nothing more
and nothing more
and still you're sore
and still you're sore
when do you soar

sometimes justice is the line you walk or sign,
but justice is complex and a matter of time
sometimes it's hanging in the balance
or dancing in the shadow like a silhouette
so what you weaving there marionette
so what you weaving there marionette

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon
say a prayer, say a prayer
say a prayer, say a prayer

Some people get a sadness so long
they just go on thinking it's a natural thing
some people throw their hands in the sky
and they wonder why god don't reply
well it's a strange, strange time
all our friends dropping like flies
everything that's come to pass
all the time we thought would last.
well I'll just button my coat and cover my neck
I got barely enough time to catch my breath
all these pictures I can't forget
it can fill your cup with regret
it can fill your cup with regret
it can fill your cup with regret

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon

Say a prayer for all the souls in bloom
cut down far too soon
under the scarlet moon
under the scarlet moon

So, what are you weaving there marionette
keepin' your balance by a single thread
keepin' your heart strings tight and pure
all you can muster and nothing more

Some people throw their hands in the sky
and they wonder why god don't reply
well it's a strange, strange time
all our friends dropping like flies
what are you weaving at marionette
everything that's come to pass
all the time we thought would last.
what are you weaving at marionette...

Cool Nights Lyrics (by Paul Davis)

I sometimes wonder why, all the flowers have to die.
I dream about you at night, summers come and gone.
And the nights they seem so long.

Chorus:
Come on over tonight, come on over.
It’s gonna be a cool night, just let me hold you by the firelight.
If it don’t feel right you can go.

Oh and the cool night, brings back memories of a good life.
When this love was not so old.

Oh I, won’t talk about the past, how love suppose to last forever.
And you don’t have to take a stand.
Lay out in your plans.

Chorus:
Come on over tonight, come on over.
It’s gonna be a cool night, just let me hold you by the firelight.
If it don’t feel right you can go.

Oh and the cool night, brings back memories of a good life.
When this love was not so old.

Come on over tonight, come on over.
It’s gonna be a cool night, just let me hold you by the firelight.
If it don’t feel right you can go.

(Repeat 2x)
On a cool night, let me hold you.
On a cool night, just let me hold you by the firelight.
If it don’t feel right you can go.

What Do You Want From Me? Lyrics (by Monaco)

There is one thing that I would die for
It's the music, my life is in your hands
Cause when you're near me, your love is all I need
Now I can't imagine

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

Give me something I can rely on
Far away from the life that I once knew
What does it matter, that's all I have to say
And I can't imagine

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

What do you want from me?
It's not how it used to be
You've taken my life away
Ruining everything

Don't Fear The Reaper Lyrics (by Blue Oyster Cult)

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain..we can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity...Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Like Romeo and Juliet
40,000 men and women everyday...Redefine happiness
Another 40,000 coming everyday...We can be like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper
Baby take my hand...don't fear the reaper
We'll be able to fly...don't fear the reaper
Baby I'm your man...

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on
Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew then disappeared
The curtains flew then he appeared...saying don't be afraid
Come on baby...and she had no fear
And she ran to him...then they started to fly
They looked backward and said goodbye...she had become like they are
She had taken his hand...she had become like they are
Come on baby...don't fear the reaper

Damned If I Do Lyrics
by Alan Parsons Project

I ain't got a heart of stone
I'm hurtin' more than I've ever known
If you mean the things you said
I'm gonna wind up outta my head
Can't sleep alone at night
I just can't seem to get it right
Damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't but I love you

I don't wanna tie you down
Don't need a reason to have you around
But each time you walk away
Don't be surprised if I ask you to stay
Can't sleep alone at night
I just can't seem to get it right
Damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't but love you
I said I'm damned if I do
I'm damned if I don't cause I love you

I ain't got a heart of stone
You haven't left me a mind of my own
But it's got such a hold on me
I don't think I could ever be free
How can I survive
I'm fighting to keep myself alive
I'm damned if I do
Damned if I don't but I love you
Can't seem to see the light
I've done everything but I can't get it right
Damned if I do
Damned if I don't but I love you

Missing (Todd Terry Club Mix) Lyrics (by Everything But Girl)

I step off the train
I'm walking down your street again
And pass your door
But you don't live there anymore
It's years since you've been there
Now you've disappeared somewhere
Like outer space
You've found some better place

And I miss you-
Like the deserts miss the rain (bis)

Could you be dead ?
You always were
Two steps ahead of everyone
We'd walk behind
While you would run
I look up at your house
And I can almost hear you
Shout down to me
Where I always used to be

And I miss you-
Like the deserts miss the rain (bis)

Back on the train
I ask
Why did I come again ?
Can I confess
I've been hanging'round
Your old address ?
And the years have proved
To offer nothing
Since you moved
You're long gone
But I can't move on
And I miss you-
Like the deserts miss the rain (ad infinitum)

Surrender Lyrics (by Laura Pausini)

I can't pretend anymore
that I am not affected, I'm not moved
I can't lie to myself
that I'm not always thinking of You.
You made strong
to show me I'm not weak to fall in love
well I thought I'd never need
now I can't get enough
I always made it on my own
I always thougt that I would keep control
You changed everything I believed in
And now I just can't fight this feeling, baby!

I raise my hands and I surrender
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
I raise my hands and I surrender!
I don't wanna resist
cause your touch and kiss
have shattered my defenses!
I surrender.

I have to admit that I
I never thought I'd need someone this way
'Cause You've opened my eyes so that I
I can see so much more.
I always made it on my own
I always thougt that I would keep control
You changed everything I believed in
And now I just can't fight this feeling, baby!

I raise my hands and I surrender (Oh, I surrender baby)
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
I raise my hands and I surrender!
I don't wanna resist
'cause your touch and your kiss
have shattered my defenses!
I surrender...

I surrender to the feeling in my heart, uhuhu
I surrender to the safety of your heart
to the touch of your lips
to the taste of your kisses.

(Choir) I raise my hands and I surrender (oh, baby, baby)
'cause Your love is too strong and I can't go on
without Your tender arms around me, hey!|
(Choir) I raise my hands (oh baby) and I surrender (surrender)
'cause Your love is too strong and I can't go on (without you)
without Your tender arms around me, hey!

I raise my hands and I surrender
'Cause Your love is too strong
and I can't go on
Without Your tender arms around me.
And I surrender

(Choir) Surrender...Surrender...

I can't pretend anymore,
I can't lie to myself
that I'm not always thinking of You.
 
And the No.1 song in the first (and likely last!!!) ever LUMINOUS COUNTDOWN of the top ten most romantically appropriate songs EVER (...) is...

If You're Not The One - Lyrics (by Daniel Beddingfield)

"If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
but I know you are here with me now
We'll make it through
and I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you're not for me then why do i dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away
But I know that this much is true
We'll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I'm praying you're the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it , I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

'Cause I miss you body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right
And though I can't be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

I don't wanna run away but I can't take it,
I dont understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way I can stay in your arms?"
 
My absolute favourite romantic song ever is "Gorecki" by Lamb:

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you
Still my heart this moment
Or it might burst
Could we stay right here
Until the end of time until the earth stops turning
Wanna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

All this time I've loved you
And never known your face
All this time I've missed you
And searched this human race
Here is true peace
Here my heart knows calm
Safe in your soul
Bathed in your sighs
Wanna stay right here
Until the end of time
'Til the earth stops turning
Gonna love you until the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for

The one I've waited for

All I've known
All I've done
All I've felt was leading to this
All I've known
All I've done
All I've felt was leading to this
Wanna stay right here
'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning
I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for
The one I've waited for
The one I've waited for

Wanna stay right here
'Til the end of time 'till the earth stops turning
I'm gonna love you till the seas run dry
I've found the one I've waited for
The one I've waited for
The one I've waited for
