I've been so many placesIn my life and timesI've sung a lot of songsI've made some bad rhymesI've acted out my love on stagesWith ten thousand people watchingBut we're alone now andI'm singing this song to youI know your image of meIs what I hope to beI've treated you unkindlyBut darling can't you seeThere's no one more important to meDarling can't you please see through me'Cause we're alone now andI'm singing this song to youYou taught me precious secretsOf the truth withholding nothingYou came out in front and I was hidingBut now I'm so much betterAnd if my words don't come togetherListen to the melody'Cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a placeWhere there's no space and timeI love you for my lifeYou are a friend of mineAnd when my life is overRemember when we were togetherWe were alone andI was singing this song to youBut I love you in a placeWhere there's no space and timeI love you for my lifeYou are a friend of mineAnd when my life is overRemember when we were togetherWe were alone andI was singing this song for youWe were alone andI was singing this song for youWe were alone andI was singing my songSinging this song for you

When asked in an interview if it was written about her, she said it was. Leon Russell said “I wanted to write standards. I wanted to write a song Frank Sinatra or Ray Charles could do.” Ray Charles won a Grammy for his version of A Song For you. It has been covered hundreds of times.
