Song Description

Slow rock - 90bpm - a sentimental poignant story of forbidden love written from the perspective of a musician, often away from home and family. A singer/songwriter type of song. Home recording.

Story Behind the Song

Almost a true story. I watched two colleagues get into an impossible situation, and tried to get inside his head. Written in the first person, I imagined I was him so the result is a mixture of me and him. Written 1978 and recorded several times. This version recorded 2011, with a total remix July 2019.

Lyrics

Song for You (Words and music by Alan Gillis)

Intro
This song is dedicated to a dream that can never come true
The dream is the love of my life
This song is for you

Verse 1
If I could open up my head to show the wilderness
My thoughts must struggle through
You'd know the way I try to find an end
I need you now my friend
This song is for you; this song is for you mm-m, mm-m

Verse 2
How could I break the bond I'd tied so long ago with love?
I thought I'd found my life
My song I'd sing for her alone but how
The key has changed and now
This song is for you; this song is for you mm-m, mm-m


Bridge 1
Bit by bit I put it all together
Someone must share the pain
With nothing else to gain but memories
Of perfect love, beneath the blossomed trees
And this song is for you

Verse 3
I love you now but she once had it all and is she to blame?
Left alone each night I'm gone
And you are there
So sweetly - Angel
You can make me sing
This song is for you; this song is for you mm-m, mm-m

Bridge 2
Bit by bit I straighten out my mind
Though you can tear my heart out
There's no other part that you can free
'Til I lie dead beneath the blossomed tree
And this song is for you
This song is for you

Coda
This song is dedicated to a dream
This song is for you
