Amy Winehouse – 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 rhyme
I've acted out my love in stages
With ten thousand people watching
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 but darlin' can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Darlin' can't you please see through me
Cause we're alone now and I'm singing this song for 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 is in there hiding

I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for in 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

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 is in there hiding

I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for in 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

    She's talking straight to the moment in time when I was in love. And I did not treat that love right. I was so blinded by the pureness, the gift he was giving me, and I took advantage of him. But the experience itself, was one that allowed me to learn so much. He was the real one, and I was the fake one, and he still chose to find me in the fog of all I was going through. Amy is taking a moment to speak to the man that changed her life. Even if they cannot be together which is apparent in the emotion she's conveying in this song. She wants to give him this moment where she is singing her heart out and explaining the meaning of him in her life. This is truly touching. Thank you amy, and we will all miss you. God bless.

    It's like her dad said, amy was about "love". I too, truely believed she knew she was gonna die. She never wanted fame! She just wanted to roller skate around her ex hubby and sing a song to him. She told her singer friend "remi", that to be in love; meant you would have to be dead if you couldn't be with the love of your life. Wow. I would've loved to have met her. God has a place for you amy.

    I cry my eyes out when I hear this song. I loved amy dearly and my heart breaks for her. I truly miss her. She obviously was singing this with true emotion. The sadness is so tangible. She gave her heart and soul to this person she is singing to. Maybe at times things were less than perfect but in my opinion she still loved blake and of course her fans. Hope you are singing to the angels amy.
