from SEX AND THE CITY: MUSIC FROM THE HBO SERIES

written by Bruce Roberts

Trisha Yearwood is one of the most important female singers in country music. Throughout the nineties up to the new millennium, the country/pop superstar, has released a string of gold and platinum-certified albums and a long series of hit singles. Among her most famous songs are the Academy Award-nominated, “How Do I Live,” and #1 country hits like “Believe Me Baby (I Lied),” “Perfect Love” and “She’s In Love With The Boy.”

In 2000, Yearwood was asked to contribute a song for the soundtrack of the TV hit series, “Sex And The City.” The song was a new Bruce Roberts’ composition entitled “For Only You.” Roberts is a talented singer/songwriter who, in the course of his career, co-wrote beautiful songs for big names like the late Donna Summer, Barbra Streisand, Dolly Parton, Neil Diamond, Cher, Dionne Warwick and Celine Dion. “For Only You” is a tender ballad with romantic lyrics and a jazzy arrangement beautifully sung by Yearwood accompanied by David Foster’s delicate piano playing. Foster appeared on the track cause he’s an old friend of Roberts’ and the two co-wrote songs and collaborated on various projects through the years. “For Only You” presents a different side of Trish Yearwood with absolutely no country overtones but instead a lush, sophisticated atmosphere that the singer handles with class and noteworthy results.
The rest of the soundtrack includes a varied ensemble of artists from Bette Midler and Tom Jones to Missy Elliot and Joan Osborne but nothing that really stands out.

Lyrics

I’ll give my love
To only you
To no one else
It’s for only you

You are the world to me
And you will always be
The one who’s oh so beautiful
My love will always stay with you

I will be yours, for all of time.
And thank the Lord, that you are mine
For with each breath I take,
I know my love is safe
In the arms of one so wonderful
As long as I can dream, I’ll dream for two
For my love is for only you

With each breath I take, I know my love is safe
In the arms of one so wonderful
As long as I can dream, I’ll dream for two
For my love is for only you…
