From the recording That Jasmin Never Bloomed

Lyrics

I remember the first time
We sat in the sunshine
In our garden on the roof
You wanted a jasmine
It got under your skin
A memory from your youth

There were sorrows and showers
You kept wishing for flowers
There in the month of June
But that dama de noche
Wouldn’t give up her secrets
She held in her sweet perfume

Ooh that jasmine never bloomed
And I still remember you
Everything in that garden grew
But that jasmine never bloomed

With mice on the flower beds
Confetti in the grass
That’s how our wedding was
A midsummer madness to
Sorrow and sadness
The neighbour’s barking dogs

Ooh that jasmine never bloomed
And I still remember you
Everything in that garden grew
But that jasmine never bloomed
Ooh no diamonds could produce
That deep September blue
Everything in that garden grew
But that jasmine never bloomed

Now tonight I can smell you
Through the dimness of years
Your caressing sweet perfume
And someone might say
Come the spring time in May
What a beautiful garden we grew
What a beautiful garden we grew
