Broadjam Member Reviews

I like how the lead vocals and backing vocals blend together, I also like the drums and the lead guitar solo.

    - Randal Dunkle

Oh, this is difficult for me. The lyrics are clever, well composed, the voice is easy and plummy and very pleasant, with deep tones that vibrate beautifully. But the lyrics are so sanguine and resigned about life and living and the knocks and perks that befall us. Even the good things are just so so, and we take it as it comes. It is a very nice song, just slightly 'dark'. An acceptance of your life as it is. I am glad the song mentions the flowers.

    - Birthe Noer Myers
Lyrics

My Garden of LIfe
Jeff Ashbaker (c)2011
909-793-0245

I had three sisters, I had no brother
Sometimes a father and Sometimes a mother, yeah
I had a best friend, till she moved away
I learned a lesson I relived today, so I
Smile when I'm happy, cry when I'm sad
Even a good thing can turn out all bad, oh~~
--Refrain--
I once saw through the eyes of my youth lord
And I can hear it calling my name
But I can't live with those lies anymore
All of my reasons have changed
--------------------
Some keeping secrets, some telling lies
I'm holding back all the tears in my eyes, yes and
Who to believe in, who do you trust
Who can you turn to , when you've just had enough, oh~~

--Refrain--
As I look through the eyes of my age now
Things just, don't look quite the same
And I can't live with their lies anymore
Even the seasons must change
------------------
I have a husband, he has a wife
We have some children and a wonderful life, yes and,
Sometimes we're happy and sometimes we're sad
All in all, well it's the best I could have, oh~~

---Refrain--
As I dig in my garden of life, oh
The colors do constantly change
Some of the flowers, they come and they go
Only the few shall remain

As I dig in my garden of life, oh
The colors do constantly change
Some of the flowers, they come and they go
Only the true shall remain
