A SONG FOR YOU
WRITTEN BY: LEON RUSSELL

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 ten thousand people watching
But we are alone yeah, 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 many times, but baby can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Baby, baby can't you see through me
We are alone, and I'm singing this song for you

You taught me precious secrets
Of the truth withholding nothing
You came out in front when I was hiding (but you have nothing to hide)
And now I'm so much better, and if my words, they don't come together
Listen to the melodies (listen to the melodies)
Cause my love, ooh baby, cause my love, cause my love, ooh
Is in there, ooh, is in there hiding
Baby I loved you in a place (in a place, in a place, in a place)
Where there's no space or time
(Baby I loved you) I loved you all my life
You became a friend of mine
And when my life is all over
Remember when we were together, when we were alone
And I was singing this song for you
For only you, only you, ooooooooooooh
I was singing my song for nobody but you

"A Song For You" | Reviewer: Kilvy | 3/26/09

I was in my early 20's when that song was new. I lost a dear friend & work-mate in that year. Not only does that song remind me of him, To this day, I believe it to be one of most beautiful tunes the group has ever done! That rich impress-
ive harmony sits in the same first row of others of the same ilk. I love the whole album, but that tune will be with me as long as I draw breath...



And "The Den" Is Still A Ten! | Reviewer: StaTone | 4/9/08

Dennis Edwards is one of the best R&B soul artists who is still doing his thing.
"The Den" as we affectionately call him has gone beyond Temptation and is now taking us back down memory lane with The Temps Review.
If you still got love for Dennis and The Temptations Review, then come join their brand new fan club on AOL.

This is a magnificent song. It retells events in my life perfectly. Not only is Dennis Edwards a vocal genius but the words are real.
