Blue gardenia
Now I’m alone with you
And I am, oh, so blue
She has tossed us aside

And like you, gardenia
Once I was near her heart
After the teardrops start
Where are teardrops to hide?

I lived for an hour
What more can I tell
Love bloomed like a flower
Then the petals fell

Blue gardenia
Thrown to a passing breeze
But rest in my book
Of memories

I lived for an hour
What more can I tell
Love bloomed like a flower
Then the petals fell

Blue gardenia
Thrown to a passing breeze
But rest in my book
Of memories
