Music Mondays: Gardenia

Welcome to Music Monday! I’ll share a song that means a lot to me and why I am sharing it. This meme is hosted by The Tattooed Book Geek.

Gardenia- Mandy Moore

Well, I put so much thought into getting ready
Now I know that was the best part
It’s so easy to get caught up in what I’m regretting
Forget what I got from a wounded heart

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

I’ve been seeing all my old friends in the city
Walking alone in central park
Doing all the things that I’ve neglected
Traded ’em all in
To be in your arms

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

Well, I hear my own voice
Sounds so silly
Keep on telling my story all around
Everything I lost seems so different
Well, this is how everybody gets found

I’m the one who likes gardenia
I’m the one who likes to make love on the floor
I don’t want to hang up the phone yet
It’s been good
Getting to know me more

Reason I’m posting: Because this song gets me through most everything. This song has been played often and on repeat during my worst days when I feel alone. When I feel like nobody is there and nobody will ever be. I also would love to learn to play the piano just to do a cover of this song.
