My insides all turned to ash / So slow
And blew away as I collapsed / So cold
A black wind took them away / From sight
And now the darkness over day / that night

And the clouds above move closer
looking so dissatisfied
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

I used to be my own protection / But not now
Cause my path had lost direction / Somehow
A black wind took you away / From sight
And now the darkness over day / That night

And the clouds above more closer
looking so dissatisfied
and the ground below grew colder
as they put you down inside
but the heartless wind kept blowing, blowing

So now you're gone
And I was wrong
I never knew what it was like
To be alone

On a Valentine's Day
On a Valentine's Day
On a Valentine's Day
On a Valentine's Day
On a Valentine's Day

I used to be my own protection
On a Valentine's Day
/ But not now

On a Valentine's Day

Cause my mind has lost direction
On a Valentine's Day
/ somehow
On a Valentine's Day

I used to be my own protection
On a Valentine's Day
/ But not now
On a Valentine's Day

Cause my mind has lost direction
On a Valentine's Day
/ Somehow

    Well I thought before it was kept a girl left him, but reading the lyrics, I found out the truth:
    His girl was killed and now he's alone.
    On a Valentines Day.
    Plain and simple. =P

    It's not a single but there is a video for it with footage of like soilders and war. so im guessing this is a song saying how paterners of soilders are always alone at at valintines day cuase' there pateners are dead or away at war. The lyrics are betufilly done Linkin park do have meaning in there songs and albums ecspically 'Minutes to midnight' that is a powerful album. Linkin park are my fav band besides the fray and kings of leon! :)
