A Song For You

Album: Lioness: Hidden Treasures (2011)
  • I've been so many places in my life and time
    I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
    I've acted out my life in stages
    With ten thousand people watching
    Darling, then we're alone and I'm playing this song for you
    I know your image of me is what I hope to be
    I've treated you unkindly but can't you see
    There's no one more important to me
    So darling, won't you please see through me?
    'Cause I'm alone and I'm singing this song for you
    Yeah yeah yeah, yeah, ey, ey, ey

    You taught me precious secrets of the truth withholding nothing
    You came out in front, well baby I was hiding
    But now I'm so much better with my words coming together

    Listen to the melody because my love is in there hiding
    I love you in a place where there's no space or time
    I love you for my life
    'Cause you the boy next door and a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember, remember, remember, remember, remember
    Being together
    And I was singing this song for you

    We were alone and
    And I was singing this song
    Singing this song

    Yes, we both alone and I was singing this song (singing this song)
    Yeah yeah yeah, we belong
    And I was singing my song for you, you, yeah, yeah

    We were alone and I was singing our song for you

    You know who I see Donny Hathaway as like um my Carleen Anderson
    Like um Marvin Gaye like great, but

    He couldn't contain himself. He had something in him, you know." Writer/s: Leon Russell
