So if we're right, not only is Valentine's Day meant for romantic relationships. It is also meant for new or hopeful romantic relationships, even dying ones. Can we benefit from the 'free shot' this day provides?
Seeing that, though, maybe committed relationships can benefit from Valentine's Day, especially if the romance has faded. Valentine's Day seems redundant if anniversaries served the same purpose. But, many anniversaries have shrunk to such an extent that they are just formalities. Most times, they’re just excuses to get cards or flowers. In those cases, Valentine's Day can serve a different purpose, one of rekindling dying embers. In its loveliest essence, reminding the longtime couple why they were drawn to each other in the first place.
We say, ironically, Valentine's Day may mean the least to couples who seem to embody its message. It may be more important to hopefuls who want or need to hear it. So, we’re giving you two Hank Sr. songs to share with your partners. Don’t get us wrong - if, at least you are trying to rekindle that lost fire.
Ask him this, ‘Why Don’t You Love Me?’
It was likely inspired by Hank's turbulent relationship with his wife, Audrey Williams. However, the song is more relaxed in nature, with the narrator admonishing himself,
“Why don't you spark me like you used to do
And say sweet nothin's like you used to coo
I'm the same old trouble that you've always been through
So why don't you love me like you used to do?”
It became Williams' third number one country hit. Hit it to your partner, too. Make him realize it’s more than just seeing each other. The hugging, kissing and loving need to be felt every day. No one deserves to be treated like a piece of clay. Now, ask him this - ‘Why Don’t You Love Me’ like you used to do? Let us know how it’d turn out.
What would you feel if he loves you ‘Half As Much’ as you do?
‘Half as Much’ is notable for being the only Hank Williams recording to feature a solo barroom piano at its conclusion. One in a million, right? Does he consider you one in a million? Does he give all his love to you? How much is too much and how little is too little for you? Extremely stirring as it goes,
“If you missed me half as much as I miss you
You wouldn't stay away half as much as you do
I know that I would never be this blue
If you only loved me half as much as I love you.”
If he just builds you up at times and later on disappoints you, do you think it’s worth all the begging? If it does, we won’t stop your hopeful desires. We wouldn’t spoil this day to tell him once more how much you love him. We are all out to support if you want to open his senses and allow him to have a chance to change.
So, we thought, putting them together will make it sound more pulling. Try to lure him into a serious and romantic talk using these songs.
Bottom line - you need to build on what you two have started.
