"A Song For You" as written by and Leon Russell....
I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singin' this song for you

I know your image of me is what I hope to be
I've treated you unkindly but darling can't you see
There's no one more important to me
Darling can't you please see through me
'Cause we're alone now and I'm singin' my song to you

You taught me precious secrets of the truth, withholdin' nothin'
You came out in front and I was hiding
But now I'm so much better so if my words don't come together
Listen to the melody 'cause my love's in there hiding

I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for my life, 'cause you're a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin' my song for you

But I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I've loved you for my life, yes, you're a friend of mine
And when my life is over, remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singin' my song for you, yes
We were alone and I was singin' this song for you, baby
We were alone and I was singin' my song
Singin' this song for you

    I think it's one of the most heartfelt and accurate declarations of love there is. "I love you in a place where there is no space and time." Love is perhaps the most immaterial and hardest to define concept, yet it is the purest and most natural. Science cannot explain it, time and space have no bearing on it, it is often irrational, and makes no sense, and yet it makes the world go round and life worth bearing. Love is deep.

    General CommentOne of the most well-written songs of the 70s. What words and that voice!
