(Leon Russell)

I've been so many places
In my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs
I made some bad rhymes

I've acted out my life in stages
Ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now
I'm singing this song for you

I know your image of me
Is what I hope to be
I treated you unkindly
But darling can't you see?
There's no-one more important to me
Oh, baby, 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
I was hiding
Oh, but now I'm so much better
If the words don't come together
Just listen to the melody
'Cause my love in there hiding
Ooh, ooh

Oh, I love you in a place
Where there's no space or time
Love you for 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
I was singing this song for you, oh
Singing
I was singing, singing, singing, singing, singing this song for you
Oh, yes
Singing this song for you
