This one will never sell,
They'll never understand,
I don't even sing it well,
I try, but I just can't.
But I sing it every night,
And I fight to keep it in,
'Cause This One's For You,
This One's For You.

I've done a hundred songs,
From fantasies to lies,
But this one's so real for me
That I'm the one who cries.
But I sing it every night,
And I fight to hide the tears,
Cause This One's For You,
This One's For You.

This One's For You wherever you are,
To say that nothings been the same
Since we've been apart.
This one's for all the love we once knew
Like everything else I have
This One's For You, oh.

I've got it all,
It seems, for all it means to me,
But I sing of things I miss
And things that used to be.
And I wonder everynight
If you might just miss me too,
And I sing for you I sing for you.

This One's For You wherever I go,
To say the things I should have said
Things that you should know
This one's to say that all I can do
Is hope that you will hear me sing
Cause This One's For You oh
