You and your girlfriend have had a minor fight over a trivial issue, and naturally you’re the one who had to take the blame. (Don’t feel bad, it happens to all guys). So anyway, she’s upset and she doesn’t want to meet you. Realizing the need to win her heart and make her smile, you start thinking of sweet things that you could say to her on the phone. Well, it’s Stevie Wonder to the rescue! Try crooning the following lines:
I just called to say how much I care
I just called to say, I love you
And I mean it from the bottom of my heart
However, if you can’t sing to save your life, then it’s better that you don’t exercise your vocal cords if you are serious about dating her. In this case, you’re better off playing her a soft, mushy number, i.e. something similar to the following Shania Twain love ballad.
The one that I belong to
You’re still the one I want for life
You’re still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You’re still the one I kiss good night
After a wonderful candlelight dinner with your girlfriend, you drive her home, walk her to her doorstep, give her a quick peck on the cheek (anything more and her dad may show up with a shotgun in his hand), and walk back to your car. As you drive back home, the memories of the romantic evening spent together still linger around in your thoughts. Suddenly, you remember that you did not wish your girlfriend good night. Rather than texting a plain ‘good night’ message, you try to think of some cool lines to add an edge. Well, how about these?
Feel like I could live forever, feel like I could fly
When I thought I’d get it wrong, yeah
You somehow make things right
It’s the way you make me feel
It’s better than I’ve ever known it
It’s better than it’s ever been
I can’t seem to control it,
It’s the way you make me feel
Being the forgetful male that you are, you suddenly realize that it’s your girlfriend’s birthday tomorrow and that you haven’t got her a birthday gift, or for that matter, even a birthday card. Cursing your memory, you start hunting around for some romantic lines to send her on her birthday (which you hope will make her spare your life). Well, apart from praying, there’s really not much that you can do to save your skin. However, if you’re honest and sincere enough, you may just about manage to salvage the situation by singing this lovely N’Sync song.
And all that surround you, are secrets and lies
I’ll be your strength, I’ll give you hope
Keeping your faith when it’s gone
The one you should call, was standing here all along..
And I will take you in my arms
And hold you right where you belong
Till the day my life is through
Every word I say is true
This I promise you,
Yes, I promise you
I don’t know any girl that is not a fan of Ronan Keating songs. This guy seems to have figured it all out. Even though you might not like his songs, (yeah I know, they are cheesy) they can prove to be a savior in various situations. Songs like When you say nothing at all is an all time hit. The lyrics say it all, you just need to sing it with a bit of emotion.
How you can speak right to my heart
Without saying a word, you can light up the dark
Try as I may, I could never explain
What I hear when, you don’t say a thing
The smile on your face
Lets me know that you need me
There’s a truth In your eyes
Saying you’ll never leave me
The touch of your hand says
You’ll catch me wherever I fall
You say it best
When you say Nothing at all
And if that doesn’t work, try the eternal backup – ‘Everything I do’ by Bryan Adams. Rarely have I come across women who do NOT like this song, so why not take a chance and use it to your advantage? Anyway, the next time you find yourself thinking about things to say to the woman of your life, remember this piece of musical advice. It could very well work in your favor!
