Valentine Code

[As part of my experiment to write a song for every letter of the alphabet, I have written one beginning with the letter ‘V’ as described in this tweet.]

Creep up behind me
Gag me and bind me
Dare you remind me now?
Figures projected
Strategy perfected, but you’re
Left unprotected now
How?

Do you really think I have no contingency?
Did you ever doubt my stringency?
Hidden in the hinges, see the concealed microphone
I’ve been recording every word you said
Leaking secrets on the Internet
And every single one of your plans falls apart
So give me back my heart

Now if you’d kindly
Gently untie me…
She looks just like me, no? Oh…
Code name: The Seamstress
And this switch was seamless
Revenge is sweetest cold, cold, cold

Allow me to alert you of the urgency, it’s a
Political emergency
The woman you hold captive is your own ambassador
How you gonna handle that publicity?
Accusations of duplicity
And quick as electricity that’s how the rumours start
So give me back my heart

Well, my dear
It seems we’re at a stalemate
Never made a plan without a failsafe
You look simply gorgeous in survival mode
And now we’re talking in Valentine Code

How suddenly I’m flooded with the memories
Feel you accessing my sympathies
Are you loosening your grip on me to trap me closer?
The temptation of the easy ways
And reliving all those glory days
I never had a say when they faded away
Do you really think I have no contingency?

Did you ever doubt my stringency?
Your collectedness unhinges me, I can’t deny it
You were always good at power games
Captivated by a naked flame
But something doesn’t feel the same, the raid is poised to start
I’m taking back my heart

I’m taking back my heart
I’m taking back my heart
I’m taking back my heart
