music monday – So Beautiful by Darren Hayes of Savage Garden

my entry to this week’s 
savage garden is one of my all-time favorite bands and darren hayes (when he was the object of my sister’s desire or even when he openly admitted he is gay and married his boyfriend of two years), in my opinion, is simply one of the most beautiful persons around…amazing lyrics, it always floored me to listen to his songs and he just feels too much, which is very evident in every song he writes and sings…
this song is just one of my favorites from him (you can only imagine how hard it is too choose, i have way too many favorites!haha!) i hope you like it too..enjoy!

note: thanks google for the photos and youtube for the video

  7. go to play gyms more often so jared can have loads of fun
  8. visit a park maybe something near or probably the la mesa ecopark one of these weekends

  10. download more pocoyo + barney episodes
  11. more exciting posts on my blog
  12. buy matching shirts for me, daddy + jared
