A song inspired a line in a valentine's card

lyrics

If I should ever awake and find I am rich
I'd trade it all for a kiss
And say by way of defence
I'm rich for the experience, rich for the experience

So don't you ever be scared to reach for the sky
Someday you know you will die
And your life will be all that you did
Want to think you wasted it? Want to think you wasted it?

I'll work like a charm
Keep you from harm
May the rays of the sun
Always find you at dawn

If I should ever get drunk and act a disgrace
Pick me up and laugh in my face
And rescue me from myself
Never been anyone else, never been anyone else

I'll work like a charm
Keep you from harm
May the rays of the sun
Always find you at dawn
