Simply Red - A Song For You Lyrics




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 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 hope to be
I've treated you unkindly but dartin' 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 the truth 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 the melody cause 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

We were alone and I was singing this song to you
We were alone and I was singing this song to you

    There was/is Leon... Ray... and Mick... and that's all there was/is to write and do (preform) this one.Carpenters is of course good too and well know, but in another dimension of style.

  46. A.... A....

    The best version is from Carpenter, which is not available in You tube,hope carpenter version will be available in the future.

  51. R.... H....

    Nice, but check out this version - WOW! https://youtu.be/LlL20v5qKpc

  52. M.... ....

    In wondering how the name Simply Red came to be … I imagine a young singer, working dive bars going by the name ”Red”, who becomes agitated when the announcer is confused about the name of the performer. Red … red what … what kind of name is Red he asks. Finally he hears Simply Fu.. ing Red.
    He omits the Fu..ing and introduces ……… Simply Red

  53. D.... P....

    to Debbie and thomas. we will always love one another.

  54. M.... G....

    THEY MADE DONNY HATHAWAY VERY HAPPY I AM SURE..

  57. G.... G....

    I honestly don't think there's a bad version of this beautiful love song written by the incomparable Leon Russell. The song holds it own no matter who sings it.

  63. A.... s....

    Will never match the Golden Keys of Leon Russell, but not a bad Feat by Simply Red. ☮♥✝

    "A Song For You"~~~~~~my baby
    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 love 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, but darling can't you see
    There's no one more important to me
    Darling can't you please see through me
    'Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song to you

    You taught me precious secrets
    Of the truth, withholding nothing
    You came out in front and I was hiding
    But now, I'm so much better
    And if my words don't come together
    Listen to the melody, 'cause my love's in there hiding

    I love you in a place where there's no space and time
    I love you for my life, you are 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

    But I love you in a place where there's no space and time
    I love you for my life, you are a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember when we were together
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you
    We were alone and I was singing this song for you
    We were alone and I was singing my song
    Singing this song for you
