Cold Chisel - All For You Lyrics

I get home and clean up, put on my best shirt
Put on my good shoes
My arms are hard from what I do all day
And it’s all for you, all for you

As I drive over by the steeple, by the hill
The rain is gone, the night is new
The constellations are coming out again
And it’s all for you, all for you

It’s all for you there are songs in the world
I’m singing softly as I drive
It’s all for you, cause you’re the only girl
And I’m young again
And it feels so good to be alive

I’ll take you out, we’ll find a place to eat
Somewhere small, with a view
And later on we’ll go dancing if you like
All for you, for you

The old anger has given way
To clear eyes and open hands
I’m getting stronger with each new day
Cause now I understand

It’s all for you there are songs in the world
I’m singing softly as I drive
It’s all for you, cause you’re the only girl
And I’m young again
And it feels so good to be alive

Cold Chisel All For You Comments
  1. Bev McGeechan

    Memories: I'm still me, sitting at the computer, listening to this, another world away, space invaders game in the corner was mine, bar bottom right through a swinging door, stage top L, dance floor left, no wonder I'm a bit deaf....Saturday Night....ManlyVale Tavern... great place :-), memories allow us to time travel, anyway that's a bit strange.... Back to the here and now.....It would be good to be able to soak standing up in the shower ..


    It’s Aussie offcourse it’s brilliant


    Always brilliant

  4. Wolver ine

    Fantastic song. Cold Chisel going back to their roots. Love it.

  5. Klaus Ebner

    This will eventually become a classic. In a hundred years time, people will play rock and roll with the same esteem and regard as the 20th Century played classical and baroque music. Rock & Roll will become a bona fide tradition as is Irish folk music.

  6. Guillermo Hoffmann

    great song guys!....


    Extremely talented and gifted band

  8. Ned

    You guys take me back to my 20's (where I made I made all my worst decisions) so I love you forever.

  9. MagicThys

    lyrics on screen in music vids always a good idea

  10. Aussie Mitch and Zac

    Barnsey! My two boys when they were only months old, they love sleeping with your songs! I remember my 4 yr old now, was singing Forever Now haha!

    Watching Jimmy presenting Rage and he drops this one in...thought I had a pretty good handle on him and Chisel, lived here for 32 years and first time I’ve heard it!! Saved immediately to my playlist, great song from a great group and Jimmy, I really enjoyed your song choices, nice to see what music influenced you

    & it feel sooo good to be alive! It's all for you! Britta!

  21. djovani29

    Listening and loving Chisel in Zagreb. I don't know if it's bad managment or lack of relentless touring USA/Europe like AD/DC and INXS,but there is no logical explanation to why this band is kept secret from the rest of the world all these decades.I feel cheated!
    The songs are sooooooooo good!

  22. Lorna Strachan

    I still listen to this......beautiful peace of music.... could mean so many things to so many people

    Seeing Chisel in the UK (Manchester) in 2012 was one of the highlights of my life! Seeing Barnesy on a solo tour in the UK (Newcastle) the summer before was, too! Such a shame they haven't toured overseas more often over the years.

    Stephen Formosa

  46. loswaldo777

    I know what im doing tomorrow on my way home from work, buying a Cold Chisel album.
    Im a drummer too. Steve was one of many special inspirations in my playing.

  73. mick vass

    This song came out just after my beautiful wonderful brother inlaw died of the age of 43. He just loved Cold Chisel and this song sounds like him singing to his beautiful wife. I miss you brother and will always love you x

  74. robelinda2

    The guitar work is beyond stellar really, Ian Moss is a true god. The tone, the touch, the note choice, the phrasing, all ridiculously classy.

  75. robelinda2
