Secret Garden: Bruce Springsteen

Posted by on Aug 26, 2013 in My Blog | 1 Comment

For anyone who knows me, it was only a matter of time before this appeared on my Flower Blog.   You might think it’s a tenuous connection, but I’m thinking that having ‘Garden’ in the title immediately qualifies it as a valid post on my Blog.  Being the Editor, I am the all-powerful decider of such things. 🙂

So here’s a little ‘Bruce’ and ‘Secret Garden’ for an August  Monday afternoon.

(Note: It’s not the best version, but I was avoiding the Jerry Maguire version.  If I find a better version, I’ll post it.  Sorry about the ad you have to watch at the beginning.)

Secret Garden bruce springsteen by runawaydream


She’ll let you in her house
If you come knockin’ late at night
She’ll let you in her mouth
If the words you say are right
If you pay the price
She’ll let you deep inside
But there’s a secret garden she hides

She’ll let you in her car
To go drivin’ round
She’ll let you into the parts of herself
That’ll bring you down
She’ll let you in her heart
If you got a hammer and a vise
But into her secret garden, don’t think twice

You’ve gone a million miles
How far’d you get
To that place where you can’t remember
And you can’t forget

She’ll lead you down a path
There’ll be tenderness in the air
She’ll let you come just far enough
So you know she’s really there
She’ll look at you and smile
And her eyes will say
She’s got a secret garden
Where everything you want
Where everything you need
Will always stay
A million miles away


Secret Garden can be found on Greatest Hits, on the Blood Brothers documentary DVD or on the Secret Garden CD single.  Or you can get the song ($1.29) or the video ($1.99) on iTunes.  There are two versions of the video currently on iTunes for, one regular and one “with strings”.  I love the “with strings” version of the song, but beware, there are no strings on the “with strings” video on iTunes — instead it includes a bunch of Jerry Maguire imagery (Secret Garden was briefly featured in the movie Jerry Maguire and is on its accompanying CD).

For that reason, I recommend the regular version of the video on iTunes.  I also highly recommend the “with strings” version of the song which can be found on the CD Single noted above.  Here it is from YouTube without any visual aids.

Secret Garden (with strings – wait for them, they’re at the end!):

A newly released live version of this song can be found here.
