A Song For You  Listen

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 on stages
With ten thousand people watching little old me
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 is no one more important to me
Baby can't you just see through me
Cause now we're alone
and I'm singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets
of the truth withholding nothing
You came out in front when I was hiding
But now I'm so much better
and if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody
because 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

Written by Leon Russell.
