"A Song For You (2001 Recording)" lyrics - LEON RUSSELL

"A Song For You (2001 Recording)"

I've been so many places
In my life and time
Sung a lot of songs
I've made some bad rhymes
Acted out my life on stage
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and
I'm singing this song for you

And I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I treated you unkindly
Can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Darling can't you please see through me
When we're alone and
I'm singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets
The truth withholding nothing
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better
If these words don't come together
Listen to the melody
My love is in there hiding

[Verse 3 - Outro]
Now I love you in a place
Where there's no space and time
I love you for my life
Darling you're a friend of mine
When my life is over
Remember when we were together, oh
We were alone so long ago
We were alone
And I was singing, yes I was singing
Singing this little song for you
