I wrote calendars after being inspired by two close friends who got married over zoom, despite all their wedding plans falling through because of the covid 19 pandemic. I wanted this song to speak to the fact that their love for each other was so much more than a party, even though it was a shame the party didn’t go ahead. I think it’s okay to grieve about things not being the way you planned, and a ceremony would have been a great display of their love for each other, but the wedding wasn’t the foundation of their love. “We never needed the bells, but it’s nice when the spell’s underway. But it’s never changed the way I see your face”. A party would have been so fun and beautiful, but it is nothing compared to their love for each other.


Covered in chocolate
You can be my valentine everyday
No perils can stop it
Throw the calendars away
We don’t need a plan to say that its fate
Keeping your hand in mine is all it takes

Why get caught up in the spiral?
Why we wasting all this time for?
The future’s bout survival
And what we got is primal, what do you say?

I don’t really feel the weight
But all this waiting around’s
Been slowly weighing it down but the base
Has never crumbled never changed
And the lights are still on
There might be less going on in this place
I know it feels kinda strange
We never needed the bells
But it’s nice when the spell’s underway
But it never changed the way I see your face

Life isn’t graceful
But you got the beat for us to dance to
The forecast’s unstable
Lucky for me I got stability in you
And we might have planned for grander design
Nothing’s gonna change that you are mine

Hit me like a gunshot
An avalanche that won’t stop
And everything is blowing up
But I know what I got won’t give it away

In all the commotion
When nothing is suspended in black and white
It might be unspoken but we have a space in the light
And nothing is perfect
But perfection is closer to me because of you
