  • 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 love in stages
    With ten thousand people watching

    But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
    I know your image of me is what I hope to be
    I've treated you unkindly but darling can't you see
    There's no one more important to me

    Daring can't you pease see through me
    'Cause we're alone now nd I'm singing this song for you
    You taught me precious secrets of the truth withholding nothing
    You came out in front and I was hiding

    But now I'm so much better and if my words don't come together
    Listen to the melody cause my love is in there hiding
    I love you in place where there's no space or time
    I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine

    And when my life is over remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you Writer/s: Leon Russell

  • Rony from Galway, IrelandAretha Franklin does a great version and Herbie Hancock has recorded it as a duet with Christina Aguilera.
  • Jason from Newark, DeMichael Bublè covered this also, and he still closes most if not all his concerts with this song. He also sings it solo, no Mic, no band, just his amazing voice...
