She's just like those things from your garden that spring from gloom
My love is a flower who's just now beginning to bloom
She's beginning to bloom, to bloom

Well my love is a birdie who's just learning to trill
I gotta be patient with her so I will
My love is a flower still beginning to bloom
She's beginning to bloom, to bloom

[What do you mean?]
I mean
She's learning to love herself,
I mean
She's learning to simply let herself go,
She's learning how to trust her own insides
Which means I better be patient because I know

???
My love is a flower beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that spring from gloom
My love is a flower beginning to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom

She's still learning how to love herself,
She can't love me till she learns how to let herself go
She can't love me till she can trust herself
So I gotta be so patient, because I know

That my love is a flower still beginning to bloom
She's like those things from your garden that spring from gloom
My love is a flower beginning to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl is beginning to bloom, to bloom

Lyrics

Well, my love is a flower still beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

Well my love is a birdie who's still learning to trill
I gotta be patient with her so I will
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

[??? These people paid their money, they want to hear you know,
They paid their money just like you,
Doesn't bother me that these people paid money
And they asked to hear this song so I think you might want to let them listen,
In fact I will start over again]

I said my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that spring
[I think I will start over again]

[They don't know that I can play guitar all night but their voices are going to get tired pretty soon]

I say my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

I say, my love is a birdie who's still learning to trill
I gotta be patient with her so I will
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

She's still learning to love herself,
She's still learning to let herself go,
And she's still learning to trust herself,
So I must be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

I say, you know

Still learning to love herself, that's right
I say she's still learning to just let herself go and trust herself
Well she's still learning to trust ???
So I must be patient, because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
??? Beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom
To bloom

Lyrics

[This is one of those songs, that every time, you know, people talk about my songs, they say 'ah they're so cute' ??? it' all right, they don't

Now this one see is called 'my love is a flower just beginning to bloom' ??? hear this tune is a

I know a lot of girls there between
A lot of my friends are female, between the age of 27 and 33 or so, 4,
And I'm saying they're just beginning to bloom right now
It's taken all this time
Well Jonathan why for women more than men?
Well, it seems, maybe, you know a lot of times
It's getting clear of one of those first marriages, and stuff
A lot of times they're used to hiding behind some guy,
More than guys are used to hiding behind another guy

I don't know but anyway, this is a song called
'My love is a flower just beginning to bloom' now,
Just learning to love herself and trust herself

So that means we can finally be friends more now
Because before when she didn't trust herself,
Well, you know, you don't trust yourself too good
You never get too good for others???

So this is a song called 'my love is a flower just beginning to bloom, just Like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom']

Well, my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
And my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

Well my love is a birdie who's still learning to trill
I got to be patient with her, so I will
My love is a flower just learning to love herself and bloom
Learning to bloom, to bloom

[What do you mean by 'bloom' Jonathan?]

Well, she's still learning to love herself,
She's just a learning to let herself go,
She's just learning how to trust her heart, about subjects
I gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

[Well you know, she's just now]
Learning how to love herself,
And she's just now learning how to let herself go
And she's still learning how to trust herself
That means I gotta be so patient, because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like the things from your garden that often spring from the gloom
And my love is a flower just beginning to bloom???
Beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom
To bloom

Lyrics

[You have someone with you?
Before you met her
She was there around getting drunk
She didn't have nothing much to do
She didn't really care if she lived or died
Cause of you, she felt a light in her life
That she didn't feel
And you know
That till she met you she'd never been quite that far before
Well don't be afraid if she goes back into the darkness
She wants to shy away from him
Not cause she doesn't like you
But because she likes you too much
You're welcome
I want you not to be scared
If she runs back to drugs
And want you to do me a favour
And not lose faith
When she goes back to hanging around with that guy who picked her up
She doesn't want him instead of you
Don't be ridiculous
She just doesn't want herself that much
If she goes back to drugs
Well I want you to ??? go
That's right, don't get scared
Let her, let her take cocaine
All right, go ahead
???
That's right
Hallelujah, hallelujah
???
???
Don't forget that
???
???
It's going to take years maybe, yeah?
That's right
But do not lose faith
Alcohol, what are we going to do?
Horse tranquilizer
Anything
That girl must go back to the gloom
To bloom]

My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

[That's right
It's a true story]

My love is a birdie who's [I don't know what I'm saying] to trill
I got to be patient with her now so I will
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just beginning to bloom, to bloom

[What's she doing?]

She's still learning to love herself,
She's still learning to let herself go,
She's still learning to trust herself,
[???]
I gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
[???]
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom,
[???]

She's just learning to trust herself,
As we speak ??? she's there at work
How can I let myself go?
She thinks
I don't know
I don't trust my intuition on this subject
I don't trust it yet
But I will learn
That right and I, I
Gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom [that's right]
My love is a flower [wrap it up] beginning to bloom
That girl is beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl is beginning to bloom

She just learning to love herself [that's right]
She just learning how to trust those feelings
I don't think ???
Trust it trust it
I think ???
Trust it trust it
Oh yeah
All right
Well I've gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom right now
She resembles those things you call the ??? from your garden
You know ??? that's right
Well my love is a flower beginning to bloom
[What's she doing?]
That girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom

Lyrics

Well, my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that must spring from gloom
My love is a flower still beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

Well my love is a birdie who's still learning to trill
Seems i gotta be patient with her now so I will
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Beginning to love herself, and bloom

I mean she's learning to love herself,
Learning to let herself go,
She's learning to trust her intuition
That means I gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
[And I waited a for long time for her] that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower beginning to bloom
Beginning to bloom, to bloom

[What do you mean by "bloom"?]

I mean learning to not let people push her around all the time
Learning to not to just do what I want, what I want to do
Learning to trust her intuition
She's been trained, she's been trained the other way
It's gonna take time

So my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Just like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is a flower just beginning to bloom
That girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom, to bloom

She's just learning to love herself,
She's been trained the other way
She's been trained not to trust her intuition
It takes time
Got to be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like those things from your garden that spring from the gloom
My love is just a flower learning to grow, learning to grow
Just beginning to bloom, to bloom
The girl's just beginning to bloom, to bloom

[I waited for a long time
When we were together, I couldn't be friends with her
Why's that?
Cause some times we would argue
She would just go my way
Even though I knew she still disagreed
I didn't want that
There was still something that had to be done
There was still resentment
There was still dependence
There was all kinds of stuff I didn't like
What about you?
Are you growing too?
Yeah
I'm just being patient
I'm growing, part trained the other way
Trained to let it out
I don't want that
I don't want people ???]

She's been learning to love herself
She's learning to let herself go
[And she trusts herself]
Learning to trust inside
Means I gotta be patient because I know

That my love is a flower just beginning to bloom
Like things from your garden in springtime that spring from gloom
My love is a flower beginning to bloom
That girl's beginning to bloom
The girl's beginning to bloom
To bloom
