She sends me blue valentines all the way from Philadelphia
To mark the anniversary of someone that I used to be
And it feels like a warrant, out for my arrest
Baby you got me checkin’ in my rear view mirror
So I’m always on the run that’s why I changed my name
And I didn’t think you’d ever find me hereTo send me blue valentines, like half forgotten dreams
Like a pebble in my shoe as I walk these streets
And the ghost of your memory, baby is the thistle in the kiss
Is the bugler that can break a roses neck
It’s the tattooed broken promise, I gotta hide beneath my sleeve
I’m on a see you every time I turn my backShe sends me blue valentines though I try to remain at large
They’re insisting that our love must have a eulogy
Why do I save all of this madness in the nightstand drawer?
There to haunt upon my shoulders, baby I know
I’d be luckier to walk around everywhere I go

With this blind and broken heart that sleeps beneath my lapel

And stales this blue valentines, remind me of my cardinal sin
I can never wash the guilt or get these bloodstains off my hands
And it takes a whole lot of whiskey to make this nightmares go away
And I cut my bleedin’ heart out every nite
And I’m gonna die just a little more on each St. Valentine’s day
Don’t you remember, I promised I would write you these blue valentines
Blue valentines, blue valentines

« Vanessa Gemayel met en scène sa ville, son Beyrouth qui dans ses premières œuvres envahit toute la toile rendue lumineuse par la richesse des façades de pierreries... parure de princesse orientale.
Mais, lucide, elle connaît aussi les coulisses derrière le décor séducteur, les bouts de ficelle, les rouages de la machinerie qui peut faire passer l’éclairage de la scène du bleu roi au bleu nuit… »
