Story behind the song
I Many years ago I fell in love with a music of "Buena Vista social club",their style and virtuosity, simply the whole thing.For a long time I carried their CD with me averywhere.Than due to changes in my life I let it slip off my mind.The other day ,to my happiness,I came across their music again.I decided,that I comit a little piracy,but just to honor the memory of one of the great performer Ibrahim Ferrer.I wrote a score for the song he performed so beatifully,the famous "Dos gardenias para ti" and I also wrote an English version "Two gardenias just for you"..My Spanish is a bit rusty,but enough left to fallow the meaning of the originallyric.I take this as a project of appreciation of great musicians.I would be greatful for your feedback.Thanks Otto
Lyrics
Two gardenias just for you Two gardenias just for you with them I come to woo to say I love you, adore you , you're my life look how beautiful they are fragrance breathing from afar, hope they’ll strive Those gardenias are from me like two lovers can't you see, they’re kissing but the kisses you gave me seem only like a reverie you’re here but your mind’s missing ref Those two flowers live with you speak to you too the same as I’d do I wonder if they care if they share our little prayer But as time is flying those gardenias of my love are dying same as I they need your love that flew away like a little dove the little dove is someone’s fling ref Those two flowers live with you speak to you too the same as I’d do I wonder if they care if they share our little prayer How the hours and days can fly the gardenias of my love ,they shell die They were starved as I for your love That flew far away like white dove All left for me is to cry
