10 lyrics per un San Valentino migliore

Dicono che San Valentino sia un giorno inventato da un gruppetto di compagnie per vendere più cioccolatini e fiori. C'è chi lo odia perché per l'ennesimo anno non sa con chi passarlo. C'è chi lo ama perché finalmente riceverà quello che desidera, con l'aiuto di messaggi cifrati e molte allusioni. C'è chi poi, come me, lo prende come un'ottima scusa per rilassarsi con qualche amico a cui può far sorbire film romantici e che vuole convincere a ricreare la scena dell'Ikea di "500 giorni insieme". Se appartenete a questa categoria, se volete far colpo su una ragazza che per ora ha occhi solo per Julian Casablancas, o se volete crearvi una playlist bella quanto quelle di Nick e Nora, a voi 10 piccoli spunti per questa mielosa giornata.

1. Coldplay - Yellow

Look at the stars
Look how they shine for you
And everything you do
Yeah they were all yellow

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
You know you know I love you so
You know I love you so


2. The Drums – Down by the Water

Everybody's gotta love someone
But, I just wanna love you, dear
Everybody's gotta feel something
I just wanna be with you, my dear
I know it's hard, I know it's hard
I know it's hard to be in this position
If they stop loving, I won't stop loving you
If they stop needing you, I'll still need you, my dear


3. Noah and the Whale – 2 Atoms in a Molecule

Last night I had a dream we were inseparably entwined
Like a piece of rope made out of two pieces of vine
Held together, holding each other with no one else in mind
Like 2 atoms in a molecule inseparably combined


4. Arctic Monkeys – I Wanna Be Yours

I wanna be your setting lotion (I wanna be)
Hold your hair in deep devotion (How deep?)
I'll be at least as deep
As the Pacific Ocean
I wanna be yours


5. Franz Ferdinand – Stand On the Horizon

I stand on the horizon
I wanna step across it with you
But when the sun's this low
Everything's cold
On the line of the horizon

Come to me
Oh won't you come to me
Come to me
Oh won't you come to me


6. Tom Odell – Hold Me

When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart
When you hold me, when you hold me in your arms
Oh when you hold me, yeah I can feel your heart beating

Suddenly I'm standing on a treetop up so high
And all the songs, and all the poems, suddenly they're right
And I'm dumbfounded by the breadth of your self control
But I don't care 'cause you're here, and you and I both know


7. Muse – Undisclosed Desires

I want to reconcile the violence in your heart
I want to recognise your beauty's not just a mask
I want to exorcise the demons from your past
I want to satisfy the undisclosed desires in your heart


8. Florence + The Machine – Cosmic Love

I took the stars from my eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you


9. The Kooks – Taking Pictures of You

I have a secret I want to tell you
Each time that I close my eyes
I can feel you
I run away with my imagination
And I am blinded by your light
You fill up the room
Ooh whoa oh
Do you remember me?
Taking pictures of you as the light came through
You were running away
And you asked me for a place to stay
Do you remember me?
Taking pictures of you
Such a wonderful thing to do


10. Catfish and the Bottleman – Hourglass

You know when you're gone I struggle at night
Dreams of you fucking me all the time
And I know you're tied up
And I know your phone's fucked
I'm craving your calls like a soldier's wife

And I'm so impatient when you're not mine
I just want to catch up on all the lost times
And I'll say I'm sorry if I sound sordid
Cause all I really ever want is you
