And when my life is over,
Remember when we were together.
We were alone and I was singing this song for you.

"A Song for You" is a song written by Leon Russell. It was the title song of the 1972 album, A Song for You.

Song HistoryEdit

Richard first heard "A Song for You" on Leon Russell's eponymous debut album, and decided it would be a good vehicle for Karen's vocals and the Carpenters' choral sound.[1]The song "bookended" the album, with the full version as the first track and a reprise at the conclusion.

One of Karen's lowest-sung notes is on this track: a D below middle C.[2]
