This Friday’s Song is I Knew I Loved You by Savage Garden. It is for my wife Teresa who is celebrating her birthday today. This romantic ballad was originally released in September 1999. I had added it along with the band’s first hit, Truly, Madly, Deeply, to my iPad music collection at some point much later.
Teresa and I were driving someplace and I had the player set to randomize songs in my collection. Teresa told me it was one of her favorites when this song played. As we listened, I realized, even though we had known each other a short time, that this song expressed exactly what I was feeling… I had finally found my way home.
Thank you, sweetheart. This song says how I feel better than I ever could. Happy birthday. Thank you for saying yes!
