Joan (2) – A Song For You

12 June 2016


 A Song For You by Donny Hathaway (1971)

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 on stages

With 10,000 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 treated you unkindly

And darling 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 a true love, withholding nothing

You came out in front and I was hiding

Now I’m so much better

And if my words don’t come together

Listen to the melody

Cuz 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
