    For you
    There might be another star
    But through my eyes the light of you it's all I see
    For you
    There might be another song
    But all my heart can hear is your melody
    So long ago my heart without demanding
    Informed me that no other love could do
    But listen did I not though understanding
    Fell in love with one
    Who would break my heart in two
    For you
    Love might bring a toast of wine
    But which each sparkle know the best for you I pray
    For you
    Love might be for you to find
    But I will celebrate our love of yesterday
    So long ago my heart without demanding
    Informed me that no other love could do
    But listen did I not though understanding
    Fell in love with one
    Who would break my heart in two
    For you
    There might be another star
    But through my eyes the light of you it's all I see
    For you
    There might be another song
    But in my heart your melody will stay with me Writer/s: STEVIE WONDER

  • Willard Davis from Colorado, UsaLove this song even as compared to some of his more radio overplayed compositions. Lyrically complex in its verse, but irresistibly singable in its chorus. This song works as an instrumental and a track with vocals. See no mention of a delightful house version featuring Kathy Sledge, with her unique, raspy tone as featured in “We Are Family.” A classic track and first song I listen to when I dive into SITKOL.
  • Paul from Melbourne, AustraliaThis is an incredibly exciting, passionate song that makes you want to go crazy. I was definitely lucky to play it in a year 9 high school group of the whole class with a small horn section. And to be a musician improvising on this like Bobbi Humphrey with her thrilling, impassioned solo which makes brilliant use of blues, spiritual 9ths and other brilliant effects personal to her style. A lucky musician you are, the chord changes are awesome to play around and are great for melody, complexity and passion, a must of play-alongs or quickly form a band and play this!
  • Jibri from Muskegon, MiI just love how this song gives hope and inspiration that one will get through the heartache. I love the drive of the song. And yes, George Benson throughout his songs kept the mentorship of Stevie Wonder in mind.
  • John from Nashville, TnBesides George Benson, jazz flute player Bobbi Humphrey makes a guest appearance. Humphrey became the first female musician signed to the famous Blue Note jazz label.
