"For You" as written by and Brian Kelly Mcknight....
I lay myself upon the floor
We're not all dying, babe
Well, maybe I don't need this after all
It was a place for me
And all the books upon your shelf
Tell stories of who you are
But there's more to the picture son
He says you'll play it on your broken guitar
He says you play it on your broken guitar

Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
I do
I do
I do

I wake up in the morning so I can watch you dress for work
But there's more to the picture here
Than what we see or what we've heard
What we've seen or what we learn

Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
I do
I do
I do

Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
Don't take my word for it
I do
I do (don't take my word for it)
I do (don't take my word for it)
I do (don't take my word for it)
I do

    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.
