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.

    Amy sounds so filled with emotion. It honestly makes me feel high when i listen to this but also filled with sorrow. She was amazing.

    Most beautiful lyrics ever. Even if it is a cover amy did. She just interprets it so well i can even feel her love while singing.
