But that was a different time when men were expected to make grand declarations of love-- such as saying "love you to the moon and back" in a public setting. Thankfully, things have changed for the better. What hasn’t changed was how a song can express how you feel about a person. Boomboxes, and now Spotify, aside, you can share how you feel about the woman you love like Cusack’s character in the movie. 

In case you were wondering what song was booming out of the boombox, it was “In Your Eyes” by Peter Gabriel. Below are some of the lyrics:

In your eyes

I see the light and the heat

In your eyes

Oh, I want to be that complete

I want to touch the light

The heat I see in your eyes

Share Special Songs With A Special Person

For Your Significant Other

So, sing these to yourself in the car, Shazam it on your phone, save it, and send it to your loved one. It is always important that the people who you love in life know how much they mean to you, especially a significant other. Send song clips or romantic song lyrics in texts, and it'll bring smiles and good tunes all around. Or, even better, write the song lyrics out by hand.

If you’re ready to move beyond sharing romantic song lyrics but not sure how to express your thoughts and feelings in person to the one you love, you might consider seeing an in-person or online therapist. A study comparing texting with a therapist and visiting with a therapist face-to-face had shown that texting can be just as effective, if not more, than traditional therapy. Clients who participated in the study reported their text exchanges as smooth and were willing to continue using this mode of therapy.
