Who Ever Said Teens Dont Listen To Jazz? Just discovered her, she's amazing.

A rather simple text, but filled with so much love and longing, thanks to this fantastic voice! Melody Gardot is the best singer in my world, and this song in particular means so much for me and my boyfriend. For the moment he is in Australia, selling his belongings there, to move to me in Sweden. We both long for that day!!

One day you'll be mine, and when you finally are I will be waiting with a ray of sunshine, a basket of happiness, and a heart full of love. You'll realize the truth of our love. You'll see we need nothing more than each other - the true spirit of happiness, healthiness, positivity and eternal love. We only need each other.

Melody Gardot is like a singer from the classic era that time saved for later because it knew we'd need her now.
