I've been so many places in my life and time
Sung a lot of songs and I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my love on stages, with millions people watching me
And we're alone and now I'm singin' this song for you

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

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

I know your image of me is not what I hope to be
I treated you unkindly baby, oh can't you see?
There's no one more important to me, please can't you see through me?
Now we're alone and I'm singin' this song for you

Now we're alone and singin' this song for you
Now we're alone and I'm singin' this song, I'm singin' it for you
yes I am, I'm singin' to you, baby

Singin' to you, baby, only you baby
Ohh yeah, I'm singin' this song for you
