"For You" as written by J. D. Martin and Don Schlitz....
If you're lost and feel alone
Circumnavigate the globe
All you ever have to hope for two

And the way you seem to float
Circumnavigate in hope
And they seem to lose control
With you

Everyone of us is hurt
And everyone of us is scarred
Everyone of us is scared
Not you

Your eyes closed
Your head hurts
Your eyes feel so low

Everyone of us is scared
Everyone of us is hurt
Everyone of us has hope

For you
X10

    General CommentThis song is simply beautiful... The way the music mingles with his voice makes me feel sort of alone and alienated... I like it.

    General CommentThis song is amazing. When I heard it for the first time I just cried when he started singing. Chris Martin has a power over me.

    General Comment"For you" is a favorite song of mine. We've all been alone at one time or another - and when I listen to this song; I see a compilation of my life in sequences of clips; some good, and some tough times, and times when I'm sitting somewhere alone, just thinking. The music is strangely mellow enough to make me feel indifferent, and how bitterness has made me a much wiser person than I ever thought I'd be.

    I started liking this song when I saw it on youtube, with clips from House M.D. with the slow intro in the background when Cameron and Wilson are talking about House. "Why does he hate his parents?" to which Wilson quipped a reply, "he hates being a disappointment." And Cameron then says "He's a doctor, world famous; how disappointed can they be?" and Wilson says "You know what I figure is worse than watching your kid become crippled? Watching him become miserable." and that was what hooked me to this song.

    General CommentThe music in this song is truly beautiful....mellow...but not unhappy. I love the part around 1:36. Eerie and insightful.

    General CommentI thought this:
    "And the way
    You seem to flow
    Circumnavigate the globe"
    was this:
    "And the way
    You seem to float
    Circumnavigating home"

    either way, gorgeous tune.
