Wild Weeds
What Does It Take?

      Most years I post a Valentine's Day video, and in years past they have been somewhat sarcastic and negative. For some reason this year I decided to make a video that was almost too nice. It's so corny and sweet that it might just give you something like a sugar high! I admit that I have a little fun with the cheesy cliches and ridiculously idyllic portrayal of a boy with a crush on a girl and how he goes about attempting to win her affection, but it's all in good fun! It may be cheesy, corny, and otherwise over-the-top on the sweetness scale, but it's supposed to be a good-natured, fun, little Valentine's Day song and nothing more. From my point of view the only redeeming aspect of this video is the fuzzed out guitar solo, but that's just me. Watch the video and then log onto YouTube and leave me a comment to let me know what you think!

If I sketched for you a heart punctured with an arrow
If I read you a poem down upon one knee
If I told you a joke would you share your laughter
If I sang you a song would you dance with me

What does it take?
What does it take?
What does it take?
To make you love me?

If I wore overalls and danced like a farmer
And I slurred my words with a country twang
If I rode around your yard on a big red tractor
Would you notice me, would you even give a dang

In my song I would sing of your unrelenting beauty
How I'm dazzled by your wit and in love with your chin
My song would reveal to you the depths of my emotions
Like is to love as the breeze is to the wind
