Featuring Johnny Depp & Natalie Portman. Paul penned this song whilst sheltering from the rain during a holiday in Morocco with his wife Nancy Shevell. He revealed to Mojo magazine: "It was inspired by the hotel pianist, an Irish guy who liked to drink. He would rattle through this repertoire of old songs from my dad's era and before. It was inspiring - his command of them, and his love for them! I had a moment one afternoon when the hotel was quiet and I just got on the piano. The spirit of what he was doing led me down the path."

Hollywood stars Natalie Portman and Johnny Depp each interpreting the lyrics of the song using their own form of sign language. Deaf music fans noted that both actors made unfortunate slip-ups with their translations. Depp embarrassingly makes the gesture for the word "enemy" while attempting "valentine" and both he and Portman make the motion for the word "tampon" instead of the word "appear."

What if it rained?
We didn't care
She said that someday soon
The sun was gonna shine
And she was right
This love of mine
My valentine

As days and nights
Would pass me by
I tell myself that I was waiting for a sign
Then she appeared
A love so fine
My valentine

And I will love her for life
And I will never let a day go by
Without remembering the reasons why
She makes me certain
That I can fly

And so I do
Without a care
I know that someday soon the sun is gonna shine
And she'll be there
This love of mine
My valentine

What if it rained
We didn't care
She said that someday soon
The sun was gonna shine
And she was right
This love of mine
My valentine
