Here’s a taste of the lovely yet sad song of Dan Seals that many would definitely relate to:

Our love was as strong
As a flower in the spring
So full of life and colors
We kept it alive
With tenderness and desire
Trust was our sunshine and water
But lately I find myself praying for rain
For the light of the sun
To bring her home again

Is she tending to a rose
From another garden?
While ours slowly grows dry
Is she tending to a rose
From another garden?
Letting our love die on the vine

LISTEN: Dan Seals 1994 hit and one of his most requested songs, “A Rose From Another Garden.”
