  • 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, oh
    I was singing my song for nobody but you
