The Day I Was Serenaded

As a teenager I dreamed of being serenaded someday. What woman wouldn’t love that? To woo me must be unadulterated romance and lots of it. Better to overdo it than skimp on the love.

3 years ago from today I met up with my now boyfriend for Valentines Day. I wasn’t sure about starting a relationship with him for various reasons even though I did like him a lot more than I wanted to admit. He told me though that he’d learned a song for me on the guitar so how could I resist?


That night my heart soared as this sexy man played ‘Everlong’ by the Foo Fighters on guitar and sang it to me. I started to cry and I fell deeply in love.

And I wonder when I sing along with you if everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

Here is Everlong the acoustic version but by Dave Grohl not my Erik.

    I was serenaded once. A guy I had the hots for called me up and sang something by Third Day (I think that was the name of the group). I downloaded the song later to listen to it, and after about a week realized they were one of those pop-Christian bands.

    Kinda spoiled the memory a bit.

    How sweet!

    On our honeymoon (SD came with 😀 ), we had a room on the 2nd floor of the hotel, overlooking the parking lot. Whenever Jim would go out to the parking lot for something, he would open the window first, then sing up to us from the lot. :rofl:

    Hope you two are having a wonderful time!
