Cole, Natalie - A Song For You Lyrics

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad climbs
I've acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
Oh, but we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you unkindly
Oh, but Darling can't you see that, there's no one more important to me
Baby, 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
When I was hiding, yeah, yeah, but now its so much better
If my words don't quite come together, please listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there somewhere hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I'm singing my song for you
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo

  14. KingOfRock61

    Didn't think anyone could cover a Karen Carpenter song, but Natalie did it. RIP Feb 6, 1950 to Dec 31, 2015 :(

  15. Rukia212002

    I'm so very devastated to hear of her passing today on New Years Day. I will miss her voice so much. I loved her music. Gone but not forgotten. She is now with her dad. Rest in peace Natalie.

  16. Morris Thomas Jr

    RIP Natalie. If love could have kept you here, you would have never left.

  17. Divine Design

    Whoever did Natalie's arrangement for this song, did the most creative of all I have heard from any artist, including Donny Hathaway and Leon Russell. We'll, Leon doesn't count because he wrote the song, so his is the genesis!

    The Temptations version of this song and Ray Charles versions's are truly amazing, both have the absolutely best orchestration and vocals you have ever heard on this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And Willie Nelson has the most mellow, singularly touching version, just Willie, his guitar and his lost highway voice! Usher forgot the words near the middle of this so he just let the band play! Oh well, you can't say he can't sing, but shit, go hear the over versions I mentioned, they are goddamned haunting!

  18. Valerie Ghent

  20. Fabio Andrade

    I think it is "I've sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad RHYMES and I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you UNKINDLY"

  21. Juan Hernaez

    Natalie Cole has done a great job with this song's rendition.
