I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE…We wrote “Song For You” for a person whom we love very dearly.  Our relationship is broken and we long for it to be restored. This is our plea for that person to return to us.  For them to know that we love them no matter what and would gladly welcome them back.  – Jenny & Tyler
