  • Oh, what a shame that your pockets did bleed on St. Valentine's,
    And you sat in a chair thinking: "Boy, I'm such a Prince!"
    Well life's a train that goes from February on, day by day,
    But its making a stop on April first

    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be,
    But just until the fish start to smell and you're struck down by a hammer

    Sure you were swift when the handsome Greek boys dropped by with gifts,
    You are suave thanks to ribbons that opened sesame
    But in the stars and closer to home in every planet,
    It ain't hard for me and dear Jojo to see

    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be,
    But just until the fish start to smell and you're struck down by a hammer

    So let it all go by, looking at the sky, wondering if there's clouds and stuff in hell
    Let it all go by, looking at the sky, wondering if there's clouds in hell

    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    Yes you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    Yes you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    Yes you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    And you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be
    Yes you will believe in love and all that it's supposed to be Writer/s: Rufus Wainwright
