A Song For You

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs I’ve made some bad rhymes
I’ve acted out my life in stages
With ten thou­sand people watch­ing
But we’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you

I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I’ve treated you unkindly but darlin’ can­’t you see
There’s no one more import­ant to me
Baby can­’t you see through me
Cause we’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you

You taught me pre­cious secrets of the truth with­hold­ing noth­ing
You came out in front when I was hid­ing
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 a place where there’s no space or time
I love you for my life you’re a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remem­ber when we were togeth­er
We were alone and I was singing this song to you

We were alone and I was singing this song to you
We were alone and I was singing this song to you
