"For You" as written by and Brian Kelly Mcknight....
If I talk real slowly, if I try real hard
To make my point dear, that you have my heart
Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know
Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know

If you love me with all of your heart
If you love me
I'll make you a star in my universe
You'll never have to go to work
You'll spend every day
Shining your light my way

If I talk real slowly, if I hold your hand
If you look real closely my love
You might understand
Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know
Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know

If you love me with all that you are
If you love me
I'll make you a star in my universe
You'll never have to go to work
You'll spend every day
Shining your light my way

Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know
Here I go, I'll tell you what you already know

If you love me with all of your heart
If you love me
I'll make you a star in my universe
You'll never have to go to work
You'll spend every day
Shining your light my way

    MemoryJulia wrote this song in Fremantle, Perth for a guy she was pretty in to a few years back. She sent it to him to show him how she felt, but her feelings weren't reciprocated. He sent her back a hip-hop song he was working on. She told the crowd this in Perth at the Down the Way gig. (:

    It's quite cleary saying that he already knows she likes him, but she'll tell him again anyway, hoping he will be with her.

    General CommentTo add to vinyls' comment, the guy's response (also in song) was about his fear of dying. He was living in India at the time.

    After hearing this song live (tonight), it's hard to imagine how any guy in his right mind would turn her down.

    General CommentI just heard this song this morning...it really captured me. got my attention. It seems she bargaining with him for love and will sacrifice what need just to keep him. Love the verse

    "I'll make you a star in my universe
    You'll never have to go to work
    You'll spend every day
    Shining your light my way"...

    You will give everything to keep a love.
