John Mayer - St. Patrick’s Day

Posted by: Lilo Lale on: November 18, 2007

Why am I still up?
Thanksgiving is this week. Finally. I love this time of year because I love Christmas. I think it’s because I’m one of those people that’s always full of hope. According to movies and tv, your hopes and dreams come true at Christmas time; so naturally, it should be a wonderful time of year, right? ::rolls eyes:: In actuality, it generally is but for different reasons.

This time of year always makes me think of the song “St. Patrick’s Day by John Mayer. He’s awesome, but I’ll talk about that some other time. 

If you haven’t heard this song, you have to give it a listen! Here’s a live performance from Last Call with Carson Daly. What he says in the song is so true. This is the right time of year to find a mate to keep around at least until well St. Patrick’s Day. You cover all the major holidays in one sweep. Anyone disagree?

Here, comes the cold.
Break out the winter clothes
And find a love to call your own.

You…enter you.
Your cheeks a shade of pink
And the rest of you in powder blue.

Who knows, what will be?
But I’ll make you this guarantee…

No way November will see our goodbyes
When it comes to December it’s obvious why
No one wants to be alone at Christmas time

In the dark, on the phone,
You tell me the names of your brothers
And your favorite colors…I’m learning you.

And when, it snows again
We’ll take a walk outside
And search the sky, like children do (I’ll say to you..)

No way November will see our goodbyes
When it comes to December it’s obvious why.
No one wants to be alone at Chrismas time.
Come January, we’re frozen inside.
Making new resolutions a hundred times
February, won’t you be my valentine?
And we’ll both be safe till St. Patrick’s day.

We should take a ride tonight around the town
And look around at all the beautiful houses.
Something in the way the blue light’s on the black night
Can make you feel more

Everybody it seems to me,
Just wants to be, just like you and me

No one wants to be alone at Christmas time
Come January we’re frozen inside
Making new resolutions a hundred times.
February, won’t you be my valentine?

And if our always is all that we gave
And we someday, take that away
I’ll be alright…if it was just till St. Patrick’s Day.

The holidays are a tough time for some. It makes sense.

I could go either way myself. There are times when you want to have someone around, but like Kelsey said, it’s nice not having to deal with the other stuff. What happens if you don’t make it until St. Patrick’s Day?
