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 darling can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Daring can't you pease see through me
Cause we're alone now nd 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 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

    It's for robyn crawford. Very sad to finally recognize the right love existed after endearing so much wrong love and destruction. Very sad indeed.

    Guiltiness that is using it's talent to reconcile. Although the peacock is guilty, it's beauty will not permit it to go down the ashes and say forgive my sins or my wrong.
    It is a kind of like " you know what i am 'u know' just see how much i care, love, bla bla bla... I know what you were before u offended me and repeating that to me will not make me change my mind. (this song is superb... Love u whitney)
