"Sing For You" as written by and Steven Chapman....
One, two, one, two, three, four

Sweet and high at the break of dawn
Simple tune that you can hum along too
I remember there was a time
When I used to sing for you

[Chorus]
Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do
Do do do, do do do

I used to sing for you

[Chorus]

Knew all the words to the popular songs
With the radio on full volume
I remember there was a time
When I used to sing for you

[Chorus]

I used to sing for you

[Chorus]

Forget the chorus, you?re the bridge
The words and music to everyday I?ve lived
There?s nothing, I wouldn?t give
For one more time, when I can sing for you

[Chorus]

Oh Yeah

[Chorus]

Soft and low when the evening comes
Holding you, sleeping in my arms
I remember there was a time
When I used to sing for you

[Chorus]

I used to sing for you

[Chorus]

I used to sing for you

    Song MeaningInterview with NPR, August 20th, 2009:
    MARTIN: One of the big songs from this tour was your single "Sing for You." Do you want to tell us a little bit about it before we play a little of it?

    Ms. CHAPMAN: Sure. It's a song that I think I was inspired to write because I remembered all these times that I listened to music with other people and how the music has been a soundtrack in my life, and the times that people sang to me, or I sang to other people. And just thinking about being in the car and singing with my friends, or my sister and I, we would sing to the radio. You know, we'd listen to, like, top 40 radio and sing along to the songs. And of course, that's now what I do for a living, too, is to sing for people, but this song was really not about that, and just more about how it's a part of the fabric of our everyday lives.

    MARTIN: All right, well, let's play a little bit. Here it is, "Sing For You."

    (Soundbite of song, "Sing For You")

    Ms. CHAPMAN: (Singing) Sweet and high at the break of dawn, simple tune you can hum along to. I remember there was a time when I used to sing for you, I used to sing for you.

    MARTIN: You know, it's a sweet song, but it's sort of wistful. Why used to?

    Ms. CHAPMAN: You know, other people have asked this question, and I only hear it now, and hearing it back, it does sound a little wistful.

    MARTIN: But you really didn't hear that at the time?

    Ms. CHAPMAN: I didn't, no, no. One of the musicians mentioned it in the studio. He was saying it's a sweet song, but it seemed a little sad, and I was like, oh, it's not sad.
