A Song For You Lyrics - Ray Charles

Review The Song (6)



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 singin' this song to you

I know your image of me is what I hope to be, baby
I've treated you unkindly but girl can't you see
There's no one more important to me
So darling can't you please see through me
'cause we're alone now and I'm singin' my song for you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth, withholdin' nothin'
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better so 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 or time
I love you for my life, 'cause you're a friend of mine

And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin' my song for you

I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I've loved you for my life, yes, you're a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin' my song for you, yes
We were alone and I was singin' this song for you, baby
We were alone and I was singin' my song,
Singin' my song, singin' my song, singin' my song
Singin' my song

Beautiful song,very well written,but even better sung by Mr.Ray Charles,Frank Sinatra said that he didn,t know any musical genius but Ray Charles,for the people that know what soul is but never get the feel,well you're in luck,because Ray Charles sings this song with so much soul,nobody could have sung it any better or with this much soul,LONG LIVES RAY CHARLES !

A song for you | Reviewer: karen | 12/11/10

I just saw Leon Russell in Tahoe, and he played this song. It is very moving, and this man is wonderful. He wrote this song, and many others, for various popular artists. This song still brings tears to my eyes. Thank you, Mr.Russell.

Its a Leon Russell Written song | Reviewer: Soul Nutts | 4/9/09


I admit Ray Charles and Donny Hathaway give this song its haunting potency...but who deserves more credit? The guy that wrote the lyrics or the one that sang it? i dont know, i couldnt say, but you have to admit that song writing, like poetry in the 20th century had become a self-indulgent activity, and chances are that, while beautifully sang and in ways- convinient to those that sang it and their life situations, the most true reality of the circumstance was felt by the one that first penned it...thats significant. Russell was a musical heavy wieght himself, and i guess he deserves as much credit as Ray and Donny.

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm YES singin' this song FOR you

a classic | Reviewer: Nomzamo Pearl Phungula | 8/22/07

this song speaks of intimacy, it shows me the way ray loved Bee, it shows him bare and exposed without the blanket of fame and worldly experience. it says despite everything else this is how i truly feel, damn the media and what they say, this is between me an you. remember this is. its a last plea. i love it, and i would love for this song to be played at my funeral and its dedicated to my all my loved ones. personally.
