Aubrey

Lyrics

And Aubrey was her name,
A not so very ordinary girl or name.
But who's to blame?
For a love that wouldn't bloom

One of the first songs I ever learn on acoustic guitar was aubrey so comes along my daughter who I name Aubrey the rest is history
You all are wrong! Aubrey is about being sane without regretting death when a heart breaks over never having consummated a love between two lovers, plain and simple....
David Gates where r we now.enjoying a great great artist again but not forgotten
My brothers first born daughters name was aubrey named in part because of this beautiful song Love This Song
I love Bread! Could listen to them for hours.
Beatiful, beautiful song.

I just looked up the history of "Aubrey" and it is not about a father or losing a child. this is what David Gates the songwriter wrote about it.
The songs features no drumming but relies on various melodic resources such as orchestral strings, classical guitar and a music box. Lyrics talk about a short-lived love (referenced by "she had been mine for a day") for a girl called Aubrey and furthermore Gates' like for that name. It's regarded as one of Bread's most beautiful yet melancholic songs.
A painfully beautiful song. It is a little curious that parents would name their daughter after this song. The song is very sad, and details a father's feeling of losing his child shortly after birth.
My name ♥♥ this is what i was named after

This always takes me back to when I was growing up in the 70's, life
was much simpler then.
