For those of you that are on the bad side of a heartbreak. And your Valentine isn't yours anymore.

There is a song for that.

I present to you "Valeintines" by Zac Brown Band

Zac Brown Band is a great band. I had the privilege of hearing them at Smith's Olde Bar before they made it big. I can honestly say that success has not changed them.


Lyrics:

Well my day is through
And all these cards and flowers
They just make me feel used
And the hour is mine
On Valentines

So I broke the vase
Yes, I've had enough
I've got to leave this place
I'm surrounded by your stuff
It's been a month full of Mondays
And I'm trying to pull through
Do you know what it's like to have a valentine
That doesn't have you?

And I'll try, I'll try to keep my chin up high
There's just something about the color of your blue eyes
And I'll lie to my pride to keep my chin up high
Morning blue says "I'm your fool"
And it's killing me
Cutting me through

Mr. Darkness it's been awhile since I've seen you
You just come around right when my hurting seems through
Everyone gets someone and darkness I got you
Do you know what it's like to have a valentine
That doesn't have you

Although I'll try, I'll try to keep my chin up high
There's just something about the color of your blue eyes
And I'll lie to my pride to keep my chin up high
Morning blue says "I'm your fool"
And it's killing me
Cutting me through

Ate a whole bag of candy hearts I had for you
I took in the colors, I remained blue
None of the damn little words on 'em would be true
Do you know what it's like to have a Valentine
That doesn't have you?

And I'll try, I'll try to keep my chin up high
There's just something about the color of your blue eyes
Father times creeps on by
Morning blue says "I'm your fool"
And it's killing me
Cutting me through

Do you know what it's like to have a valentine
That doesn't have you?

Zac Brown is one audacious s.o.b.... who happens to have the skills to back it up. :) Normally, when you're up for Best New Artist, and you get invited to perform at the Country Music Awards, you come out and you do your hot new single, and go ga-ga when the crowd goes wild (Taylor Swift).

Zac Brown did NOT come out and do "Chicken Fried." He and the boys came out and did "The Devil Went Down To Georgia," with Charlie right there just a few rows back of the stage.

And freakin' OWNED it.

And when Charlie got up along with everybody else to give them a Standing O? They were all like, "Yeah, we meant to do that. :)"

And the whole thing with country music in general is, it's not fantasy, it's not "we're so perfect" nor is it "baby come back"... it's real. It's about crying, and then picking up and going on... about how the happily ever after ain't always so happily or so ever after, and about what you do about it when you get to that point. Zac just happens to be one of the best in the biz right now.

And, FWIW? I feel your pain, dude. I've got a goodly handful of good friends, some of'em closer than others... a few of them have put a smile in my inbox this morning, even... but no one to wake up next to on a Monday morning and commiserate another weekend's demise.

May you find what you *need*.

Right now, I'd go with Celo Green's "Song otherwise known as Forget You". Absolutely great song, in its uncensored form :-)

(I'm not currently in any kind of heart-break, I'm just sayin: if I was, I'd go with Celo Green)
