Garden of Love

Tags: 

Liner Notes: 

Had a lovely time last night with a former lover from long ago. We had shared an intense beautiful relationship for a few years that began one July summer and have seen each other only a few times since then. She is now an avid gardener who has an entire yard full of incredibly gorgeous day lilies that reached their zenith of colorful beauty this summer in July and which is now slowly fading away. She showed me several pictures of her garden last night.

So this song came very quickly this morning.

Lyrics: 

V1
buds open
petals unfold
in vibrant gardens
color is bold

magic erupts
stories explode
like intense beauty
new love holds

in the hot heat of summer

C
summer gardens
awaken with heat
alive with hope
so full of dreams

summer gardens
that thrive in heat
fall victim fast
to the first freeze

V2
day lilies with
short lived blooms
like intense love
end too soon

flowers close fast
wither and die
like lost hope in
lovers eyes

in the cool end of summer

C
summer gardens
awaken with heat
alive with hope
so full of dreams

summer gardens
that thrive in heat
fall victim fast
in the first freeze

B
intensity fades as
seasons change
but dormant seeds
rise beautiful again
when we nurture..
nurture their needs

in the new light of summer

C
summer gardens
awaken with heat
alive with hope
so full of dreams

summer gardens
that thrive in heat
fall victim fast
to the first freeze

Very beautiful, poetic, loving lyrics. Amazing symbolism and imagery here. Hope to hear it.

Love is really like a garden. I guess we'd all love to have a garden that's forget in bloom, but as you said, sometimes things have to die for new things to take root. And it doesn't necessarily mean we need a whole new garden, some plants are perennials. They always come back. Lovely metaphor. Insightful and beautiful lyric.

Such a beautiful allegory and love the erotical touch and love that just burst out of this.
