Paul Westerberg 2002

Well you wish upon a star that turns into a plane
And I guess that’s right on par
Who’s left to blame?

If you were a pill
I’d take a handful at my will
And I’d knock you back with something sweet and strong
Plenty of times you wake up in February make-up
Like the moon and the morning star you’re gone

Tonight makes love to all your kind
Tomorrow’s makin’ Valentines

Hey you pop up in this old place
So sick and so refined
Are you strung out on some face?
Well I know it ain’t mine

If you were a pill, I’d take a handful at my will,
And I’d knock you back with something sweet and strong
Trouble keeping your head up when you’re hungry and you’re fed up
Like a moon and a lone star you’re gone

Tonight makes love to all your kind
Tomorrow’s makin’ Valentines

If you were a pill, I’d take a handful at my will,
And I’d knock you back with something sweet as wine
Yesterday was theirs to say, this is their world and their time
Well if tonight belongs to you, tomorrow’s mine

Tonight makes love to all your kind
Tomorrow’s makin’ Valentines

Valentine, The Replacements, Pleased To Meet Me (1987)

Pleased To Meet Me album cover

Most people who know me know that I am a die-hard Paul Westerberg fan. I love the Replacements, too, but I became a fan after they broke up and heard Westerberg’s solo stuff first so I consider myself a Westerberg fan. The photo is from a 2002 concert at the 9:30 Club in DC – probably the best concert I ever witnessed. Just Paul and guitars – magnificent!

This song is from one of the best albums the Replacements ever recorded. Buy this album – you won’t regret it.
