(feat. Chris Botti)

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad climbs
I've acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
Oh, 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
Oh, but Darling can't you see that, there's no one more important to me
Baby, baby, can't you see through me, 'cause we're alone now
And I'm singing this song to you, you taught me precious secrets
Of a true love withholding nothing, you came out in front
When I was hiding, yeah, yeah, but now it's so much better
If my words don't quite come together, please listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there somewhere hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I'm singing my song for you

    I love you, very few things that I know without a shadow of a doubt, You are my best friend, You have taught me lessons some go a lifetime without every figuring out, I know I have much room to improve, I'm going to make the latter years the best years, I believe, I am with you, I will be yours until the very end!

    Means a lot .. But i like it more by amy winehouse. She really feels each word she sings and it sounds more natural and pure.. I also like the music more from amy's song.

    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 all my life 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
    Can't you see
    There's no one more important to me
    So darlin' won'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, well baby 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 my life
    Cause you were the boy next door and a friend of mine
    And when my life is over
    Remember remember remember...
    When we were together
    And i was singing this song for you

    We were alone and
    I was singing this song for you
