about

“Valentine’s Day For Life (I’m Making My Way To You)” is inspired by all the happy and not so happy memories of Valentine’s Days past. Magic Moments set out to write a song that would uplift the broken hearted and embolden the lucky love birds. No matter your situation, this song will take you on a journey just as exciting and magical as love itself! The song features his talented word play, and in fact the verses were all originally drafted as freestyles. This is the first release that features his guitar playing, with the previous music focused mainly on his electronic production. The combination makes the song feel like a hip-hop and indie crossover.

Magic Moments has definitely had some interesting Valentine's Day experiences, and it's clear he's a hopeful romantic despite having his heart broken many times and spending countless lonely nights with nothing but his music. Through it all, his love has never stopped growing, and it's clear in this epic anthem that his heart is exploding with love for everything including himself, the world and all his past and future loves. What began as a riff and a single lyric line, turned into an epic 14 minute anthem for Valentine's Day. Whether you're single or taken, this song is for you and your beautiful heart.

lyrics

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

This is a song about being single
Or in a relationship
Either way you’re constantly
Reevaluating it
Making sure this is where you want to be
Is this the life you want to lead
How can I know whose right for me
Until I’m sure I know me

Whether I’m single or taken
The Universe is making
Adventures happen
So I’m rapping
Taking nothing for granted
Granted
Everyday I have a choice
There’s a script
An inner voice
An exit to my left
But the show starts oh boy

I stumbled onto stage
The crowd engaged
Who is this clown
They expressed with rage

Reached into their smart phones
Pulled out a tomato app
Meant to flat line
My vibe online

But then I hit the first note
Shipwrecked the whole boat
They hung on though
For dear life
I saw one lady
Meet her future wife
And I’m glad though
Cause it’s alright
We made it through all night
Without sinking
Cause my groove got you thinking
About licking your lips
And dipping your hips
And in between sips
I’m just tipping
The waitress
Waiting for this
To turn into that
And then we might know where we’re at

And maybe I might go back

To the part
When my heart
Wasn’t a door mat

To the part
When my love
Wasn’t dormant

To the part
When you said what you meant
And meant what you said

To the part
Blah blah blah

Returned to where it was sent
The letter I had meant for you
A Better Man like Vedder
And still Nothing Man
Damn

That’s how it goes
It doesn’t really matter though
Still got my love
And I still got the flow
And I’m still gonna go
Around the whole world yo
Whoa whoa whoa
Yeah

Baby I don’t wanna waste no time
I just wanna make you mine
Or just be on my own
Whoa whoa whoa

I’m blowing up on my own
I’m just blowing up on my own

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

I think about
The way things used to be
Falling in love twice
In February
Just to make sure I had somebody
50 percent chance
Of being with me

How do you like them odds
Half of these girls think I’m odd
I think it’s odd
Everyone forgot
How to fall in love
Just because
They looking though
But sometimes
We all get lost

And I wonder
Where I should go
I asked my friend
I thought they’d know
They didn’t know

And I wonder
Where I belong
I wrote these words and this song
And then I sing along

You know I remember
How we first met
Both getting over
Some stupid bull shhh

Glad we got through it
Even though we blew it
Mom said she knew it
When I played you my music
And you acted like
I didn’t know how to do it

You made jokes about my songs
So I made songs about your jokes
Did you know people once boo’d Dylan
Ya I guess there’s always those folks

What kind of person are you
To do the things you do
Are you cursed or cursing or worse
Are you hurting and hurting others too

You’re not a villain
But you’re not willing
To stop killing me softly
You promised me a Grammy
But you act indifferently
You deserve an Oscar
For portraying some other person
So I couldn’t discover
It was worse than I imagined
Cause you were making better offers
To other lovers
And laughing

And there I go
On an epic adventure
From the time my eyes open
Til I’m done scrolling

A master of distraction
A gut reaction to attraction
Or just an action packed disaster
Waiting to happen

Self-trolling
A hopeful romantic
In love with a hopeless nomadic
Checked all of the above
And so below

It’s all so close
To falling apart
As fragile as skin
Bones and hearts

But I’m not gonna bother
To go down to your level
To the garage
This is garbage
Have to throw it out
No doubt

This is not what I’m about
Let it go
Never look back
Except to learn
What I lacked
And to burn this whack
Perspective of lack
Which is where I’m at

Today
Hey hey hey
What more can I say
Stick around for the third verse
Stick around for the third verse

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

I wonder if you’ve been dreaming about me
Have you been dreaming about me
And if you’ve been dreaming about me
What are we doing in your dreams

Have you been dreaming about me
I wonder if you’re dreaming about me
Cause when I’m dreaming about you
I wonder if you’re dreaming the same dream

Dreaming dreams is just a dream
I rather do the real thing
With you and me
A dream’s a dream
But I rather do the real thing
Just you and me

Ohhh
Baby baby
Ohhh
I wonder

(Solo)

I wonder if you’ve been dreaming about me
Have you been dreaming about me
And if you’ve been dreaming about me
What are we doing in your dreams

Have you been dreaming about me
I wonder if you’re dreaming about me
Cause when I’m dreaming about you
I wonder if you’re dreaming the same dream

Dreaming dreams is just a dream
I rather do the real thing
With you and me
A dream’s a dream
But I rather do the real thing
Just you and me

Ohhh
Baby baby
Ohhh
I wonder

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

It’s Valentine’s and I’m single
Or it’s Valentine’s and I’m taken
It’s never a day I’m not grateful
Or one you’ll see me faking

I put all my love
Into every single day
A billion feelings
Flowing away

Hey Young Magic
Ya
I love you
That’s how I start my day

My heart is my biggest fan
My smile is my greatest plan

I’m here to say, it’s been quite a while
Since I’ve had a break
From the troubles and trials
I’ve gotten used to lately my dear

So I turned bad to glad
When I kept rapping
To overstand fear
And being sad
Put my macking on hold
Picked up this guitar
It had gotten cold
And sand this song
A story that had to be told

About letting go
And going on my own
Shine as bright as gold

Play the game of your life
There’s no way to lose
If you play it right
From your heart

I thought I hit a dead end
But it was only the start

I’ve got to say
I seem to have found my way
Found my way back to you

Like the first time
But someone new
With potentially and essentially
The right kind of magic for me

And she saw what you couldn’t
Or just because you wouldn’t
I shouldn’t have excused your lies
I’ve got galaxy eyes

Living life open like a book
Do I kiss as sweet as I look
Do I taste as good as I cook
You’re cool with me glancing at your waist
But you’re wondering if knowing me is a waste

Am I the one
Or another bad date
Cause I know we’ve both had enough
Of haters and their hate
And their word spells

It’s rough
But we’re tough
And we’re doing well
Yet only time will tell
Unless you tell me the time
And I’ve got to get onto my second date

Is this make believe
Cause I’m not acting
Even if you’re casting
Was that a true story
Or yet to happen

I’m just me
And you’re so good at you
I think that’s why it makes sense to say
I love you on Valentine’s Day

Oh hey
There you got it recorded
Locked me in forever
If I should ever make a mistake
The courts would rule in your favor
And cut short my fate

Speaking of which
It reminds me of this
Moment I discovered my favorite flavor
But I’ll tell you that story later

When the kids get to napping
And the gators aren’t snapping

I’m basically hoping you like to dance
And let the whole thing be organic
I’m always taking a chance
And I’m so romantic
But I’m not an addict
No no no no
I’m just romantic

This is Valentine’s Day for life
Making my way to you
I’m just one Valentine’s away
From breaking in two

This is Valentine’s Day for life
I’m making my way to you
Just one heartbeat away
From breaking in two

I wonder if you’ve been dreaming about me
Have you been dreaming about me
And if you’ve been dreaming about me
What are we doing in your dreams

Have you been dreaming about me
I wonder if you’re dreaming about me
Cause when I’m dreaming about you
I wonder if you’re dreaming the same dream

Dreaming dreams is just a dream
I rather do the real thing
With you and me
A dream’s a dream
But I rather do the real thing
Just you and me

Ohhh
Baby baby
Ohhh
I wonder

I wonder if you’ve been dreaming about me
Have you been dreaming about me
And if you’ve been dreaming about me
What are we doing in your dreams

Have you been dreaming about me
I wonder if you’re dreaming about me
Cause when I’m dreaming about you
I wonder if you’re dreaming the same dream

Dreaming dreams is just a dream
I rather do the real thing
With you and me
A dream’s a dream
But I rather do the real thing
Just you and me

Ohhh
Baby baby
Ohhh
I wonder

I wonder

I wonder
