Garden Heart
Garden Heart
Patrick Niemisto- 2005 ASCAP

Driving my first car with my first love
Tasted my first kiss on that pine plantation
Didn?t get very far; didn?t get to know her
Summer ended and life goes on

Saturday night; a quarter to eight
A little bit early to pick up my date
Went to knock on the door, saw through the window
She?s in the arms of a so-called friend

And a man?s got to learn how to go down easy
When everything is falling apart
He?s only got so much love for losing
Alone like a stone in the garden of lonely hearts

Dear diary, it goes like this
It all begins with an innocent kiss
You go for long walks, slow dancing, and talk
She spends the night; she?s gone before breakfast


The older I get ? the more that I know
The more that I know ? the less that I under-
Standing In tears healing my heart
Get my feet on the ground and do over again
