"For You" as written by and Johnny/dewitt Cash....
This world that I live in is empty and cold
This loneliness cuts me and tears at my soul
I'm no child of destiny, no fortune's son
I've just chased you so long now, I'm too weak to run

So here I return to a back street of thrills
Back to any warm shoulder till she's got her fill
And then I treat shame like an old friend from home
That I can lean on till the misery is gone

A new day is here yet nothing is new
You're still gone and I tremble for you

I cry out at bedtime no, please not tonight
But again there's your footsteps and I turn on the light
Of course you're not there, no, you never are
Then I try to forget that there's always a bar

And well, I win that battle, yes, sometimes I do
But sleep doesn't come when I tremble for you

    General Commenti love this song..i can't believe there are no comments yet..i think this song is about somebody who is there to help out another person in their time of need...at times it gets hard to be strong..but they stay stong for the other person...it could also deal with religion and how this person is staying strong for God..and how he wants to give up on God but he remains the rock for God...beautiful song

    General Commenti think this song is so great . it seems to me about the hero type the person who will rescue u - the person who goes through everything for you .it's like a promise to come thru on a promise - it's wonderful
