"A Song For You" as written by and Leon Russell....
I couldn't live
I couldnt live without your love
For one kiss
Well I'd give everything up
There's no words I can describe
What I feel deep inside
So I let this song say it all

Then I hope you'll understand
Once you've listened till the end

Heard the music in my head
So before I could forget
I start singing
Yeah I was singing
This song
For you

Just made up the words
La la la ohhh ohhh yeah
My heart with a melody

So I am singing
This song
For you

    General CommentThe first time I heard this song, I fell in love with it. It reminds me of a song you'd hear playing in the background of an old black-and-white movie. The lyrics fit right with it, too. They are so simple, but so powerful at the same time. I think she's saying, "I am singing this song to help you understand that I love you and need you, and I'd give anything for you."

    General CommentYes, you took the words right out of my mouth! :D This song is BEAUTIFUL especially the violon part. Gave me shivers when I heard her sing it on Oprah sometime in January of this year.
