Valentine 03:16
Let’s go be alone Where no one can see us, honey Careful in that room Those parasitic cameras, don’t they stop to stare at you? Can’t love for us both You’ve gotta live And I gotta go As long as it’s us two Fuck being remembered I think I was made for you So why’d you wanna erase me? Darling, valentine You’ll always know where to find me When you change your mind I’d hate to picture someone with you I lay down and start to cry You won’t believe what just two months do I’m older now, believe me I adore you So why’d you wanna erase me? Darling, valentine You’ll always know where to find me When you change your mind So why’d you wanna erase me? Darling, valentine Now I can’t hate you I ruined me for you Blame me if you need to But I adore you.

Ben Franklin 03:01
On two Feels like spring All on my own Guess the shit just makes you boring Got money, I don’t care about sex You knew how i’d take it You brought her to flex. Sucker for the pain Huh, honey? But you said you’d die You wanna leave a stain Like a relapse does When you really tried And damn, this time I really tried! Moved on, but nothing feels true Sometimes I hate her just for not being you Post rehab i’ve been feeling so small I miss your attention I wish I could call Sucker for the pain huh, honey? But you said you’d die! You wanna leave a stain forever But you said you’d die Said you would’ve died for me Raise your voice to me The second time I had to make myself believe I deserve it, I’m crazy But don’t act like you’ve never met me “I never should’ve hurt you, I’ve got the devil in me” Sucker for the pain, huh honey? But you said you’d die You wanna leave a stain forever But you said you’d die! Said you would’ve died for me

Headlock 03:12
When did you start seeing her? Guess somebody finally tamed you Never seen you look so sure Sorrow snuck into our secret place Drag me with you to nirvana baby take me all the way Drinking just to taste her mouth Got you drifting in and out Mister death wants my baby now Felt the crowd was wrong to claim you Won’t they ever quiet down? Someone’s daughter adorned in flames Drag me with you to nirvana, baby Take me all the way Man enough to see this through Man, I’m nothing without you Thought i’d see her when i died Filled the bath up with warm water Nothing on the other side Man enough to see this through Or is it one more thing I won’t get to? Can’t go out, i’m tethered to: Another world where we’re together Are you lost in it too?

Light Blue 02:34
The first time I met you I knew then That afterwards there’d be no in between We can sail the ocean blue or just lie down You know how I love you Nothing’s gonna stop me now Nothing’s gonna stop me now I wanna wake up early everyday Just to be awake in the same world as you I won’t ever hurt you No more endless nights Only the lightest blues If anyone should stop me now... Nothing’s gonna stop me now I’m not going back

I might have made a stranger outta you And I’m stranger too. I know that’s not my perfume on you, Tiger And we don’t have long Doesn’t obsession just become me? Don’t let em’ see, we don’t owe it to nobody. No matter where we are I love you from the city to the stars But nothing stays as good as how it starts You and I Like a ship forever sailing You and I Everything we try is failing Everything we do, everything we try Time tends to pass and make a joke of things But Eleven months and still… Some nights I reach for you like you’re beside me You’re taking her home Doesn’t obsession just become you? You’re taking that tone Icy cold, c’mon I loved you! Whatever you decide I’d chase you from the city to the sky And lose myself for you a thousand times You and I (Like a ship forever sailing) You and I (Everything we try is failing) Everything we do, everything we try So much destruction Look at what we did That was so real And you don’t just forget (No more, everything is her)

Madonna 02:53
You’ve got a way to you, original Madonna Won’t make the rest just go away You spent the money throwing 1’s at supermodels Everybody wants to taste the wine Line around the block at judgement time And how could you deny them that? Body and Blood Lover’s curse Divine Intervention was too much work I don’t need absolution It just hurts We’re not really talking now We’re not really talking now I consecrate my life to kneeling at your altar My second sin of seven being: wanting more Could that have been the smell of roses, backseat lover? Praying you’d fill my empty cup Or cursing myself for even getting dressed up Body and Blood Lover’s curse Divine intervention was too much work I don’t need absolution No! it just hurts We’re not really talking now Body and Blood I’ll atone Get to it now Or we can fight on the phone I Used to wanna get even I’ll just get stoned Bow to your divinity Gonna wipe the dirt off me Our love’s a sickness baby I’m holding on tight I don’t know why I’ve come to hate my body ‘Cause now it’s not yours Now it’s not mine I don’t know why I don’t know why But we’re not really talking now

c. et al. 03:23
Woke up without why or how Wasted asleep on the couch Routine as it is, I can start everyday Without all the messing around Even with a job that keeps me moving Most days I just wanna lie down Sleep it away till’ it’s nothing and Pull the blinds all the way down, down Sunrise Dead of night With a comedown so early in the morning I hate those long drives ‘Least we ended things nice Summer’s gotta end sometimes Oh, Mia. Baby blue, I’m so behind Can’t make sense of the faces in and out of my life Whirling above our daily routines Both buried in problems, baby, honestly. Wish it’d been you the other night Should’ve been you, but it’s alright Feels like i’m losing my mind, baby blue But i’d leave it behind if you want me to

Glory 02:20
You want it all, superstar Jesus died just to save you Walk me down Hollywood Boulevard Get me high in the hotel room You owe me You own me I could never hurt you my love You know me When it gets cold We’ll move to Malibu Where the drinks are hard You make em’ go down smooth You wanna make it hurt, superstar When you take too much in the bathroom You owe me You own me I could never hurt you my love You know me You owe me You own me Couldn’t even look at you straight on Shining in your glory

Automate 03:09
One more drink ‘till I can feel you And when the party’s empty We can slow dance in my room Tried life without you But you in that green sweater… I could die if I had the guts Puked it up, drank too much Feed the flame forever Automate me and i’ll never find a love like this Im free But who was I to ever want like this? You got so mean Pouring out the Jack and consequence When you’re with me And who was I to ever want like this? Blank lips, dark room I pretend it’s you Though, she kissed like she meant it... It’s like i’m living and i’m past her And it’s thirteen days after But it still feels like i’m cheating One more drink ‘till I can lie beside you Though all at once is better Automate me And I’ll never find another love like this I’m free But who was I to ever want like this? You got so mean Pouring out the Jack and consequence When you’re with me And who was I to ever want like this? I guess I couldn’t keep her fire out I guess I couldn’t keep her fire out I’m like your dog I’m like your dog Only I know you’ll be sweet if I stay It’s not enough Conditional love When i’m old and rotten you’ll be on your way I guess I couldn’t keep her fire out I guess I couldn’t keep her fire out And childishly im lonely When it’s time to clear out the party Automate me

Mia 03:27
Isn’t it strange The way it’s just over? No late night calls You’re not here to walk me to my door Now I just love you more Mia, don’t cry. I love you forever But I gotta grow up now No, I can’t keep holding onto you anymore Mia, i’m still yours Lost love so strange And Heaven’s not real, babe I wish that I could lay down next to you. You’re fixing your hair on the way to his place off of Broadway and 9th If you’re waking up slow together And talking through the night I’ll bet he feels so fucking light Lost love so strange And heaven’s not real, babe. Well I wish that I could lay down next to you.. I wish that I could lay down next to you.

about

Valentine was written and produced by Lindsey Jordan and co-produced by Brad Cook (Bon Iver, Waxahatchee). Written in 2019-2020 the album is filled with romance, heartbreak, blood, sweat and tears. The sonic leap forward can be heard from the first moments of the title track – the whispered voice and eerie synths erupting into a full-on stadium-sized adrenaline-rush of a chorus. From there it’s all go – with electronic anthems, baroque FM rockers, smoldering slow-jam R&B, and heart rending finger-picked ballads. The star of the show however is Lindsey’s voice. Her vocals and words are rawer, deeper, snarlier, and more feeling than ever before.
