Valentine
William J. Hall - February 14, 1979

  1 Been a while that we've been gone
  2 I'm happy to hear you're well
  3 Seems like your plans are almost drawn
  4 Near as I can tell
  5 Here's a smile from some familiar faces
  6 Traveling to you from these far away places
  7 It's been miles we've been away
 
  8 Snowed again the other night
  9 I was here with these friends of mine
  10 Getting the rhythm tracks right
  11 On this valentine
  12 Morning found us still up playing
  13 Pin ball machines near this place we've been staying
  14 So many miles we've been away
 
  15 If it were another time and place
  16 Take my guitar and I'd quit this rat-race
  17 And tell you that I'm coming home to stay
  18 But these words are written through me
  19 And these songs are given to me
  20 Keep making them up
  21 Putting them down
  22 Calling me to play
  23 Though it keeps us miles and miles away
 
  24 Had a dream the other night
  25 Heard you call my name
  26 And you said to me
  27 You were with me just the same
  28 Though it may seem crazy
  29 Sometimes I really feel you here, baby
  30 Though it's been miles we've been away
 
  31 Were it in another time and place
  32 Take my guitar and I'd quit this rat-race
  33 And tell you that I'm coming home to stay
  34 But these words are written through me
  35 And these songs are given to me
  36 Keep making them up
  37 Putting them down
  38 Calling me to play
  39 Another love song today
  40 Tell you all the things I never manage to say
  41 It's miles and miles and miles
  42 And miles of self-imposed exiles
  43 Yet only miles we've been away
