About All For You
Tony Bennett’s son, Danny, had long encouraged his father to write a song. While performing in Hawaii, he dropped in to a small jazz club and heard the Django Reinhardt song “Nuages” and felt that he had found the right melody for the song he had in mind. The resulting song is really beautiful.

Lyrics

When you turned around and looked into my eyes
It was just the moment when I realized
That my life had just begun
And my past faded away
All I do is hope and pray
That our love will always stay

Now my world is so alive
My dreams came true
You’re the spirit that I need
It’s all from you

Every moment that I live my whole life through
Now I’ll look into your eyes and live for you

Now my world is so alive
My dreams came true
You’re the spirit that I need
It’s all from you

Every moment that I live my whole life through
Now I’ll look into your eyes and live for you

All for you
When I look into your eyes
