Donny Hathaway – A Song for You

‘En wanneer ik er niet meer ben, herinner je dan dat wij samen waren. Alleen wij tweeën en dat ik dit lied voor jou zong.’ Donny Hathaway zingt in ‘A song for you’ over tijdloze liefde. Een liefde die voor altijd blijft bestaan op een plek waar geen tijd bestaat.

Leon Russel schreef het nummer, maar ook deze versie van Donny Hathaway is geliefd als nummer om te beluisteren tijdens afscheidsdiensten. Zijn warme stem geven de woorden uit dit lied nog meer kracht.

Songtekst

I’ve been so many places in my life and time
I’ve sung a lot of songs
I’ve made some bad rhymes
I’ve acted out my life in stages
With ten thousand people watching
But we’re alone now
And I’m singing this song to you
I know your image of me is what I hoped to be
I treated you unkindly
But darling can’t you see
There’s no one more important to me
Baby can’t you see through me?
‘Cause we’re alone now and I’m singing this song to you

You taught me precious secrets
Of a true love
You wanted nothing
You came out in front
When I was hiding
But now I’m so much better
And if my words don’t come together
Listen to the melody
‘Cause my love is in there hiding

I love you in a place
Where there’s no space or time
I love you for my life
You’re a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together

We were alone
And I was singing this song to you

I love you in a place
Where there’s no space or time
I love you for my life
You’re a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together

We were alone and I was singing this song to you
We were alone
And I was singing this song to you
We were alone and I was singing this song
Singing this song to you
