"Song For You" as written by and Thomas Walsh....
So today I wrote a song for you
'cause a day can get so long
And I know its hard to make it through
When you say there's something wrong

So I'm trying to put it right
'cause I want to love you with my heart
All this trying has made me tight
And I don't know even where to start

Maybe that's a start

'cause you know its a simple game
That you play filling up your head with rain
And you know you are hiding from your pain
In the way, in the way you say your name

And I see you
Hiding your face in your hands
Flying so you won't land
You think no one understands
No one understands

So you hunch your shoulders and you shake your head
And your throat is aching but you swear
No one hurts you, nothing could be sad
Anyway you're not here enough to care

And you're so tired you don't sleep at night
As your heart is trying to mend
You keep it quiet but you think you might
Disappear before the end

And its strange that you cannot find
Any strength to even try
To find a voice to speak your mind
When you do, all you want to do is cry

Well maybe you should cry

And I see you hiding your face in your hands
Talking bout far-away lands
You think no one understands
Listen to my hands

And all of this life
Moves around you
For all that you claim
You're standing still
You are moving too
You are moving too
You are moving too
I will move with you

    General CommentMaybe in this song the real view of the situation can be found in the narrator, the artist it self.

    it say a lot of him.

    General CommentI listened to this for the first time yesterday and thought it was beautiful right from the start. I had a good session of it on repeat today which was nice.
    I think it's a comforting song. Because I used go through those times frequently when I wanted to disappear or all I wanted do was cry. Sometimes I still feel that way. And I'd never get anywhere if it weren't for the people that cheer me up a little.
    The lyrics sum up the feelings of loneliness really well when it feels like nobody else knows how you feel. But the song is just about how a person can want to be there for a friend and just listen to what they have to say and make them positive again.
    I would love this sung to me anytime I'm feeling low.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song. It describes sadness and grief so well, and how when you love someone you just want to make their bad feelings go away.

    General CommentI think it's "All this trying has made me tired" not tight. Or at least that makes more sense to me.
