24th Anniversary Logo & 41 Love Songs

It's our 24th Anniversary this month. This marks the year that MORE than half of our lives have been each other's.

I think that's something. In my work I am often amazed and saddened by the amount of self-centeredness I see in marriage. It seems simple: when I got married that meant my life was no longer just mine and no longer about just me. It was about her and about us. As a result, I spend a lot of time throughout the year looking for ways to make Kara feel special and know she's loved. I also teach about "Valentine's All Year" as I believe we don't need to wait just one day a year to make a big deal out of our relationships. Why not go above and beyond throughout the year? Great companies work hard to win their customers over and over and over—they don't wait for just one day each year to market themselves to their customers. Great brands, of course, don't just market, they offer a quality product and experience. And from that they create brand loyalty.  I decided GREAT relationships could, and should, do the same. A long time ago, I decided I would keep working to win and woo my one "marital customer." I've found it's a fun way to stay focused on her and us throughout the year and makes our anniversary and Valentine's something especially enjoyable to look forward to.

Each year I do the following five things for Kara every anniversary. I guess you could say this is all part of my "Marital Marketing Campaign." So far, she's still buying! :-)

1. The Anniversary Logo

Many moons ago I once considered becoming a graphic designer. I became a therapist instead. However, I've long dabbled in graphic design and most of my own marketing and design materials. It's fun. And I've designed all our anniversary logos.

I also teach a workshop called "Creating the GREAT Relationship Brand" on how to use branding, marketing, and customer service concepts from business in our own relationships. So, several years ago, I came up with the idea of creating our own brand for our relationship. And while I do a different logo each year, the actual brand aspect that remains constant in each iteration is the "I ♥ Kara".

I put it on the back windows of our vehicles as a vinyl sticker. Over the years, friends and locals have come to look for it and anticipate the next year's, "Are you doing a new one this year?" Yep!

Throughout the year I collect love songs specifically for our next anniversary. I especially prefer love songs that speak to commitment, dedication and behavioral love, not just romantic or feeling-based love.

3. Bouquet of Roses

One red rose (24) for each year we've been married and one yellow rose for friendship. We were friends before well before we ever dated and we've been friends through all the love, arguments, ups and downs.

Friends first and friends last. 


4. A Fancy Dinner

Kara's fortunately easy to please and for many years we didn't have much as students and then even after I graduated I was the primary breadwinner working as a therapist for mental health agencies (which don't pay much), so the budget has always been tight. We often couldn't afford a fancy expensive dinner. I realized, a long time ago, though, that putting aside $10 each month means $120 I could spend on my baby once a year to take her to a really nice restaurant. So even though we were poor I found a way to splurge, too, and add a real exclamation point (!) to our anniversary. It's easier now, financially, thank goodness, but even then we found a way to make it special.

Kara's an amazing cook (aka "Culinary Wizard") and knows and appreciates fine food. It's fun for me to watch her enjoy an especially well-prepared meal by an amazing and talented chef. Her anticipation while reading the menu and taking in the ambience is palpable. When the dishes arrive she exults in the presentation and flavors. She knowledgeably explains how the food was prepared. Her refined palate can distinguish the subtleties of the various ingredients. She teaches me what the terms and fancy words mean. It's a real joy to eat with her. It's well worth the expense.

Some of our favorites we've gone back to year after year are The Blind Dog (casual fine dining in Park City), Franck's (French cuisine in SLC), we happened upon Faustina's, which enjoyed two years in a row. This year we tried the Lucky H in the Little America Hotel.


5. A Getaway

salt-lake-city.jpg

When we were first married, we liked to just wander around, window shop, look at antique shops, sit in bookstores and read. We didn't have to buy anything (and often couldn't anyway). We just enjoyed "palling around" together. When the kids were little and we couldn't afford an overnight getaway, we would still getaway by getting a babysitter and taking the whole day off together. As the kids got older, with the help of our flight attendant friends(!) we were able to get some buddy passes and go to Disneyland, Hawaii and a Cruise for our anniversaries. Those were especially fun anniversary trips.

This year it's a simple "staycation." We're heading up to Salt Lake City and while we'll stay in a nice hotel this year, most of our time will just be "palling around" wandering the streets and shops of SLC. No matter where we go, simple or fancy, cheap or expensive, that's the main thing: We just enjoy being together. That's all that really matters. 


That's how we do it. But there's no "right" way. What works for each couple (simple or complex, cheap or expensive) is the right way. So what are some of your favorite anniversary and/or Valentine's traditions, memories, activities? Comment below. 


All the Lyrics

  1. Come to Me — The Goo Goo Dolls
    1. I'll be kind, if you'll be faithful
      You be sweet and I'll be grateful
      Cover me with kisses dear
      Lighten up the atmosphere
      Keep me warm inside our bed
      I got dreams of you all through my head
      Fortune teller said I'd be free
      And that's the day you came to me
      Came to me

      Come to me my sweetest friend
      Can you feel my heart again
      I'll take you back where you belong
      And this will be our favorite song
      Come to me with secrets bare
      I'll love you more so don't be scared
      And when we're old and near the end
      We'll go home and start again

      I caught you burnin' photographs
      Like that could save you from your past
      History is like gravity
      It holds you down away from me
      You and me, we've both got sins
      And I don't care about where you've been
      Don't be sad and don't explain
      This is where we start again
      Start again

      Come to me my sweetest friend
      Can you feel my heart again
      I'll take you back where you belong
      And this will be our favorite song
      Come to me with secrets bare
      I'll love you more so don't be scared
      And when we're old and near the end
      We'll go home and start again
      Start again

      Today's the day I'll make you mine
      So get me to the church on time
      Take my hand in this empty room
      You're my girl, and I'm your groom

      Come to me my sweetest friend
      This is where we start again,
      Again

      Come to me my sweetest friend
      Can you feel my heart again
      I'll take you back where you belong
      And this will be our favorite song
      Come to me with secrets bare
      I'll love you more so don't be scared
      When we're old and near the end
      We'll go home and start again
      Start again

  2. You Are My Sunshine — Yusuf (Cat Stevens)
    1. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
      You make me happy when skies are grey
      You never know, oh, how much I love you
      Please don't take my sunshine away

      The other night, as I lay sleeping
      I dreamt a light entered my heart
      When I awoke, I was mistaken
      Ah, but the curtains were still blown apart

      You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
      You make me happy when skies are grey
      You never know, how much I love you
      Please don't take my sunshine away

      My mama once told me
      What a soul should know
      It's about the devil, and I hate him so
      He'll be crying, if we don't frown
      And keep on smiling
      He'll stop hanging round

      You are my sunshine, my only sunshine
      You make me happy when skies are grey
      You never know, how much I love you
      Oh, please don't take my sunshine away

  3. Never Tear Us Apart — INXS

    1. Don't ask me
      What you know is true
      Don't have to tell you
      I love your precious heart
      I
      I was standing
      You were there
      Two worlds collided
      And they could never tear us apart
      We could live
      For a thousand years
      But if I hurt you
      I'd make wine from your tears
      I told you
      That we could fly
      'Cause we all have wings
      But some of us don't know why
      I was standing
      You were there
      Two worlds collided
      And they could never ever tear us apart
      I
      I was standing
      You were there
      Two worlds collided
      And they could never tear us apart
      You were standing
      I was there
      Two worlds collided
      And they could never tear us apart
      I
      I was standing
      You were there
      Two worlds collided

  4. Peaceful Easy Feeling — Eagles
    1. I like the way your sparkling earrings lay
      Against your skin so brown
      And I wanna sleep with you in the desert tonight
      With a billion stars all around

      'Cause I got a peaceful easy feeling
      And I know you won't let me down
      'Cause I'm already standing on the ground

      And I found out a long time ago
      What a woman can do to your soul
      Ah, but she can't take you any way
      You don't already know how to go

      And I got a peaceful, easy feeling
      And I know you won't let me down
      'Cause I'm already standing on the ground

      I get this feeling I may know you
      As a lover and a friend
      But this voice keeps whispering in my other ear
      Tells me I may never see you again

      'Cause I get a peaceful easy feeling
      And I know you won't let me down
      'Cause I'm already standing, I'm already standing
      Yes I'm already standing on the ground

  5. I Will — The Beatles

    1. Who knows how long I've loved you
      You know I love you still
      Will I wait a lonely lifetime
      If you want me to, I will
      For if I ever saw you
      I didn't catch your name
      But it never really mattered
      I will always feel the same
      Love you forever and forever
      Love you with all my heart
      Love you whenever we're together
      Love you when we're apart
      And when at last I find you
      Your song will fill the air
      Sing it loud so I can hear you
      Make it easy to be near you
      For the things you do endear you to me
      Oh, you know I will
      I will

  6. The Way I Am — Ingrid Michaelson
    1. If you were falling, then I would catch you.
      You need a light, I'd find a match.

      Cause I love the way you say good morning.
      And you take me the way I am.

      If you are chilly, here take my sweater.
      Your head is aching, I'll make it better.

      Cause I love the way you call me baby.
      And you take me the way I am.

      I'd buy you Rogaine when you start losing all your hair.
      Sew on patches to all you tear.

      Cause I love you more than I could ever promise.
      And you take me the way I am.
      You take me the way I am.
      You take me the way I am.
  7. In a Gadda da Vidda — Iron Butterfly

    1. In a gadda da vida, honey
      Don't you know that I love you?
      In a gadda da vida, baby
      Don't you know that I'll always be true?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And take my hand?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And walk this land?
      Please take my hand
      In a gadda da vida, honey
      Don't you know that I love you?
      In a gadda da vida, baby
      Don't you know that I'll always be true?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And take my hand?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And walk this land?
      Please take my hand
      In a gadda da vida, honey
      Don't you know that I love you?
      In a gadda da vida, baby
      Don't you know that I'll always be true?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And take my hand?
      Oh, won't you come with me
      And walk this land?
      Please take my hand
  8. I Knew This Would Be Love — Kina Grannis & Imaginary Future
    1. It's funny how we met on the telephone
      You and I on the edge of the unknown
      Oh, in only a moment's time
      I knew my heart was yours and yours was mine

      When I saw you waiting at your place
      Something felt familiar in your face
      Oh, you smiled as if to say
      I knew my heart was yours from the first day

      CHORUS:
      We were right
      We stood through it all
      Holding tight
      Whenever we fall
      What we found is second to none
      I knew, I knew, I knew this would be love
      I knew, I knew, I knew this would be love

      There were days when I thought I'd lost you
      I read the letter aloud, what could I do?
      Now, we're right back where we belong
      Don't second guess your heart, it's never wrong

      CHORUS

      I knew, I knew, I knew this would be love
      I knew, I knew, I knew this would be love


  9. Can't Help Falling in Love (cover) — 21 Pilots
    1. Wise men say only fools rush in
      But I can't help falling in love with you

      Shall I stay, would it be a sin?
      If I can't help falling in love with you

      Like a river flows
      Surely to the sea
      Darling so we go
      Some things were meant to be

      Take my hand, take my whole life too
      'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

      Like a river flows
      Surely to the sea
      Darling so we go
      Some things were meant to be

      Take my hand, take my whole life too
      'Cause I can't help falling in love with you
      'Cause I can't help falling in love with you

      But I can't help falling in love with you
  10. Nothing Can Stop Us Now — Tim Minchin
    1. We've got years ahead of us
      We've got people who care for us
      We've got Sunday morning coffees in the sun
      We've got Monday night television

      We've got years of happiness
      We've got decades of laughter ahead of us
      We've got Christmases with family by the sea
      We've got wine and vintage cheddar

      Yeah, I have everything a man could ever want
      And all I'll ever need is you

      Nothing can stop us now
      Only the good times left
      Nothing can stop our love
      Except terminal illness
      Or sudden accidental death

  13. Thinking Out Loud — Ed Sheeran
    1. When your legs don't work like they used to before
      And I can't sweep you off of your feet
      Will your mouth still remember the taste of my love?
      Will your eyes still smile from your cheeks?

      And, darling, I will be loving you 'til we're 70
      And, baby, my heart could still fall as hard at 23
      And I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
      Maybe just the touch of a hand
      Well, me—I fall in love with you every single day
      And I just wanna tell you I am

      So, honey, now
      Take me into your loving arms
      Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
      Place your head on my beating heart
      I'm thinking out loud
      Maybe we found love right where we are

      When my hair's all but gone and my memory fades
      And the crowds don't remember my name
      When my hands don't play the strings the same way (mmm...)
      I know you will still love me the same

      'Cause, honey, your soul could never grow old, it's evergreen
      And, baby, your smile's forever in my mind and memory
      I'm thinking 'bout how people fall in love in mysterious ways
      Maybe it's all part of a plan
      Well, I'll just keep on making the same mistakes
      Hoping that you'll understand

      That, baby, now
      Take me into your loving arms
      Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
      Place your head on my beating heart
      Thinking out loud
      Maybe we found love right where we are (oh, oh)

      La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, lo-ud

      So, baby, now
      Take me into your loving arms
      Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars
      Oh, darling, place your head on my beating heart
      I'm thinking out loud
      But maybe we found love right where we are
      Oh, baby, we found love right where we are
      And we found love right where we are

  15. Love, Love, Love — Avalanche City
    1. Girl, I say, if only life would lean our way,
      Well, you and me, we'd run away to be wherever our adventure waits,
      And time would be a distant memory, nobody could tell us to stay,
      Well, I've been dreaming ever since I've seen you
      Heaven when you came my way.

      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love

      Oh, it's seems awfully far for us to find at all,
      All these years will wash away and we'll be clean but we'll have nothing more,
      Well I can't say there'll come another day where money and our time affords,
      On our hands, our wrinkles understand we never really wanted more.

      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love

      And all the life about to go is in my mind,
      Cause all the loudest voices in the world are never right

      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love
      I heard your heart say love, love, love

      Baby, I'm yours (Baby, I'm yours)

      In other words, until the end of time

      [ALEX:]
      I'm gonna stay right here by your side, 
      Do my best to keep you satisfied
      Nothin' in the world could drive me away
      'Cause every day, you'll hear me say

      Baby, I'm yours (Baby, I'm yours) 
      And I'll be yours until two and two is three, 
      Yours, until the mountains crumble to the sea
      In other words, until eternity

      Baby, I'm yours
      (Til the rivers all run dry)

      (Til the sun no longer shines) 
      Baby, I'm yours
      (Til the poets run out of rhymes)

  20. This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody) - Postmodern Jukebox: (Vintage 1940s Swing Talking Heads Cover ft. Sara Niemietz)
    1. Home is where I want to be
      Pick me up and turn me around
      I feel numb, burn with a weak heart
      Guess I must be having fun

      The less we say about it the better
      Make it up as we go along
      Feet on the ground, head in the sky
      It's okay, I know nothing's wrong, nothing

      I got plenty of time
      You got light in your eyes
      And you're standing here beside me
      I love the passing of time
      Never for money, always for love
      Cover up and say goodnight, say goodnight

      Home, is where I want to be
      But I guess I'm already there
      I come home, she lifted up her wings
      I guess that this must be the place

      I can't tell one from the other
      I find you, or you find me?
      There was a time before we were born
      If someone asks, this is where I'll be, where I'll be

      We drift in and out
      Sing into my mouth
      Out of all those kinds of people
      You got a face with a view

      I'm just an animal looking for a home
      And share the same space for a minute or two
      And you love me till my heart stops
      Love me till I'm dead

      Eyes that light up
      Eyes look through you
      Cover up the blank spots
      Hit me on the head

  21. Just Like Fred Astaire — James
    1. Doctor, what is happening to me?
      Palpitations, my mind's diseased
      Even my vision is impaired
      I'm losing my hair

      'Cause when I hold her in my arms
      I feel like Fred Astaire

      Lovesick, my temperature's high
      Just met a girl who believes we can fly
      I'm a bull, not a bear
      I'm a millionaire

      'Cause when I hold her in my arms
      I feel like Fred Astaire

      I believe in happiness
      I believe in love
      I believe she fell to earth
      From somewhere high above
      I believe in Hollywood
      Don't believe that love must bring despair

      'Cause when I hold her in my arms
      I feel like Fred Astaire

      You say love is just a disease
      A plague for the naive
      These days, no-one believes

      Meteors may strike the earth
      Nations live and die
      I'm the boy who got the girl
      And now we're gonna fly
      We can cross the race divide
      Bridge a gap that wasn't really there

      'Cause when I hold her in my arms
      I feel like Fred Astaire
      I'm gonna hold her in my arms
      Just like Fred Astaire
      I'm gonna hold her in these charms
      Like Fred Astaire

      (My goodness, the water's rising)
      Like Fred Astaire
      (My goodness, the water's rising)
      Like Fred Astaire
  22. Kathy's Song — SImon & Garfunkel
    1. I hear the drizzle of the rain
      Like a memory it falls
      Soft and warm continuing
      Tapping on my roof and walls.

      And from the shelter of my mind
      Through the window of my eyes
      I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
      To England where my heart lies.

      My mind's distracted and diffused
      My thoughts are many miles away
      They lie with you when you're asleep
      And kiss you when you start your day.

      And as a song I was writing is left undone
      I don't know why I spend my time
      Writing songs I can't believe
      With words that tear and strain to rhyme.

      And so you see I have come to doubt
      All that I once held as true
      I stand alone without beliefs
      The only truth I know is you.

      And as I watch the drops of rain
      Weave their weary paths and die
      I know that I am like the rain
      There but for the grace of you go I.
  23. Simply Beautiful — Al Green
    1. If I gave you my love,
      I tell you what I'd do
      I'd expect a whole lot of love out of you
      You gotta be good to me
      I'm gonna be good to you
      There's a whole lot of things you and I
      Could do
      Hey hey
      Hey hey hey
      Simply beautiful, simply beautiful, simply
      Beautiful
      Simply beautiful, simply beautiful, simply
      Beautiful
      Simply beautiful [Repeat: x4]
      What about the way you love me
      And the way you squeeze me
      Hey
      Hey simply beautiful hey
      And you get right down it
      And the love is getting you through it
      Simply beautiful [Repeats]
  24. Head Over Heels — Flatt & Scruggs
    1. I think I'll go across the ocean
      If I don't change my notion
      I've just got to forget you if I can

      I'm feeling so blue
      I don't know what to do
      Because I'm
      head over heels in love with you

      Every day is sad and lonely
      For I'm thinking of you only
      I just can't sleep when I lay down

      Oh I'd like to be forgiven
      But this life ain't worth living
      If have to sit and worry over you

  25. Your Worries and Troubles Are Mine — Ralph Stanley
    1. People keep asking and wondering why
      There's always a tear in your eye
      You've lived a hard life one I'd rather not lead
      I ought to be glad it's not me

      But when tears fill your eyes and clouds hide the sky
      Your heart is so sad and you have a worried mind
      You'll know my heart is with you and my love for you ain't blind
      Your worries and troubles are mine

      Now the nights are hard to get through as I wait restlessly
      My letters are written in vain
      Unsure of your feelings my tears fall endlessly
      And my heart's beating rhythm with the rain

  26. If You Want My Love — Cheap Trick
    1. If you want my love, you got it
      When you need my love, you got it
      I won't hide it
      I won't throw your love away, ooh

      When you need my love, you got it
      I won't hide it

      Yes, I thought you were a mystery girl
      A special girl in this crazy old world
      You couldn't see me when I laid eyes on you

      Lonely is only a place
      You don't know what it's like
      You can't fight it
      And it's a hole in my heart, in my heart

      If you want my love, you got it

      A special face, a special voice, a special smile in my life

      'Cause lonely is only a place
      You don't know what it's like
      You can't fight it
      And it's a hole in my heart, in my heart

  28. "Ooh Girl!" An Honest R&B Song — Runaway Box
  29. If That Isn't Love — "Weird Al" Yankovic
    1. i'm your shelter from the storm
      you'll know I'll always have your back
      I'll even let you warm your freezing hands inside my butt crack
      I never get out my leaf blower when Oprah is on
      and when you're telling me about your feelings I try not to yawn
      and when we're at parties I don't talk about your spastic bladder
      when you're cleaning the gutters on the roof I hold the ladder

      and if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      i don't know what love is
      nanananananana nanananano i guess i don't know
      nanananananana
      ahhhh listen now

      there's a microscopic bit of milk left in the refrigerator
      i coulda finished it off but i quit in case you want a tiny little sip for later
      and if you cut the cheese then maybe i'll wink and say the dog's to blame
      and i'll make sure to call you baby everytime i forget your name
      i'll even tell you girl when you start looking fat
      'cuz all your so-called friends will probably neglect to mention that

      and if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      i don't know what love is
      nanananananana nananana well then I don't know
      nananannananna
      oh no
      even though you make me sit through Mamma Mia!
      well I still adore you
      i'll kiss you even if you have omelettes for breakfast
      and i can't stand omelettes
      after I take a bath
      if its still warm i'll leave the water in there for you
      i'll give you my word
      you're so beautiful you make a glorious sunset look like a big fat turd
      everytime I see you trying to lift some really heavy thing
      you can always count on me to help by saying something encouraging
      if you get drunk and pass out i'll never sharpie up your face
      and I don't wipe my nose on your couch even though that's a super convenient place
      i totally support every idiotic thing you do
      and i almost never pretend you're someone else when i'm making out with you
      and if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      if that isn't love
      i don't know what love is
      nanananananana no i don't know what love is
      nanananananana well I don't know what love is
      I don't know what love is
  30. With a Little Luck — Wings (Paul McCartney)
    1. With a little luck, we can help it out.
      We can make this whole damn thing work out.
      With a little love, we can lay it down.
      Can't you feel the town exploding?
      There is no end to what we can do together.
      There is no end, there is no end.
      The wiliow turns his back on inclement weather;
      And if he can do it, we can do it, just me and you,

      And a little luck, we can clear it up.
      We can bring it in for a landing,
      With a little luck, we can turn it on.
      There can be no misunderstanding.

      There is no end to what we can do together.
      There is no end, there is no end.
      The willow turns his back on inclement weather;
      We can do it, just me and you.

      With a little push, we could set it off.
      We can send it rocketing skywards.
      With a little love, we could shake it up.
      Don't you feel the comet exploding?

      With a little luck.
      With a little luck.
      With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck.
      With a little luck.
      With a little luck.
      With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck.
  31. The Promise — When In Rome
    1. If you need a friend
      Don't look to a stranger
      You know in the end, I'll always be there
      But when you're in doubt
      And when you're in danger
      Take a look all around, and I'll be there

      I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
      I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
      But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
      I promise, I promise you I will

      When your day is through
      And so is your temper
      You know what to do
      I'm gonna always be there
      Sometimes if I shout
      It's not what's intended
      These words just come out
      With no gripe to bear

      I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
      I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
      But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
      I promise, I promise you I will

      I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
      I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
      And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me
      I promise you, I promise you I will

      I gotta tell you
      Need to tell you
      Gotta tell you
      I've gotta tell you

      I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
      I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
      But if you wait around a while, I'll make you fall for me
      I promise, I promise you

      I'm sorry, but I'm just thinking of the right words to say
      I know they don't sound the way I planned them to be
      And if I had to walk the world, I'd make you fall for me
      I promise you, I promise you I will
      I will
      I will

  32. Day Is Done — John Prine
    1. Do you like me?
      Well I hope you do
      Cause if you like me
      Then I think I'm gonna to have to like you too

      We'll share our things
      And have some fun
      Then we'll say goodbye
      And go back home when the day is done

      If you tell me
      I'll tell you too
      And we'll say the things
      And do the things that lovers do

      We'll keep it to ourselves
      We won't hurt no one
      Then we'll say goodbye
      And go back home when the day is done

      We'll carve our names
      On a tree
      Then we'll burn it down
      So no one in the world will see

      And we'll make love
      While we watch the flame
      Then we'll walk away
      As if we never had no shame

      Now we must hide
      To be alone
      And we can't say
      Our sweet things on the telephone

      If we can't stop
      What we've begun
      We should say goodbye
      And go back home when the day is done

      Do you still like me?
      Well I hope you do
      Cause if you still like me
      Then I think I'm gonna have to still like you

      We shared our things
      And had some fun
      Now we'll say goodbye
      And go back home when the day is done

      Yeah, we'll say goodbye
      And go back home while
      We still have one
      Let's say goodbye and go back home
      Now the day is done
