lyrics

First laid eyes on Valerie
At the grocery store.
She was a little cold,
Kept her distance.
Valerie

I couldn’t wait to see her again
So I followed her home.
But I couldn’t stay
We weren’t alone.
Valerie

Chorus
Valerie, you breathe and break a heart.
Valerie, I’ve known you from the start.
Valerie, you breathe and break a heart.
Valerie, be careful in the dark.

I kept in touch
And the feelings grew stronger.
I knew I couldn’t stand by
And wait much longer.

Till we were side by side
Sweet Valerie and I
I’d know no peace, get no sleep
Just keep a watchful eye
On my…

Chorus
Valerie, you breathe and break a heart.
Valerie, I’ve known you from the start.
Valerie, you breathe and break my heart.
Valerie, be careful in the dark.

Guitar solo

Chorus
Valerie, you breathe and break my heart.
Valerie, I’ve loved you from the start.
Valerie, you breathe and break my heart.
Valerie, be careful in the dark.

Bridge
Now, I’m not a jealous guy.
But I can’t let this slip by me.
And I could break right down and cry.
But I’d rather settle the score
Even if you’re not around anymore
Sweet Valerie

Valerie
Valerie
Oh, oh, oh, oh Valerie.
