Song for You


Song for You © Jon Davis 2018


He came out of the audience just as I walked off stage

And asked “Who wrote that second song you played?”

“It’s mine” I said, “I played it for the first time today”

Then he said, “You wrote that song about me”


Just a song about a girl who ran off with another man

By a solo singer / song-writer with a guitar in his hand

But the man from the crowd; well, he seemed to understand

And I realised I had something to say


CHORUS

Sometimes the only way to deal with what’s inside

Is to write down all my feelings and swallow all my pride

Then I put it all to music, where I have no place to hide

I write my songs for me ... but I sing them for you

One day I sang a tale of fallen heroes left behind

While in the crowd I saw a group of veterans start to cry

Although they did survive, some parts of them had died

It tormented them that they were still alive



CHORUS

Sometimes the only way to deal with what’s inside

Is to write down all my feelings and swallow all my pride

Then I put it all to music, where I have no place to hide

I write my songs for me ... but I sing them for you


(BRIDGE)

But as I sit backstage with just a bottle of JD

I wonder if my audience knows how lonely it can be

When they ask the questions I have the answers that they need

But would anyone ever sing a song for me?

I sang my song of love about a girl from a country town,

As a cowboy approached a lady and ‘laid his guns down’

They danced for a few numbers and as he took her home

I knew I’d introduced them somehow


CHORUS

Sometimes the only way to deal with what’s inside

Is to write down all my feelings and swallow all my pride

Then I put it all to music, where I have no place to hide

I write my songs for me ... but I sing them for you

I write my songs for me ... but I sing them just for you
