Song for You
by Donny Hathaway



I've been so many places
In my life and time
I've sung alot 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 hoped to be
I treated you unkindly
Oh darlin can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Baby can't you see through me
'Cause we're alone know
And I'm singing this song to you

You taught me precious secrets
Of a true love, 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 my melody
Because 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

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
Singing this song to you
