I wrote this song for you

I wrote this song for you

 [Jeremy Loops]
Jeremy Hewitt, (born 4 March 1984), known by his stage name Jeremy Loops, is a South African  singer and songwriter.

I’ve been warm and I’ve been cold

It’s been drifting in my bones

It’s been a long long year

Another time another place

It’s been happening every day

It’s just good to have you here

Seen you know some things

And you’ll stretch them on

What you didn’t I know

What you did I sa-a-w

And what you see that I didn’t know

Now, What you told me to…

You watch out

See I wrote it for you

See I I wrote it for you for you and you and you and you and you and you and you and you and yoooooo

Say you walk, you take and stroll

down the way to the sun

So close to your heart

And it will take you alive

It will burn you up inside

But you know there’s – going home

See I wrote it for you

See I See I wrote it for you

Cause you told me to Cause I told you to

See I wrote it for you  See I wrote it for you

See I Cause you sing it out

Sing it out
