Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “plan.” 


I must be in a wedding-song mood this week as I stretch the theme out again to include this romantic ballad.

In 1997’s For You, artist Kenny Lattimore pledges his love and devotion… and a plan for life together to the woman he loves.

Written by Kenny Lerum, a high school classmate of Lattimore, the song reached number six on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks (Billboard) and number thirty-three on the US Billboard Hot 100.  For You received a Grammy nomination for Best Male R&B Vocal Performance at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards but lost to R. Kelly’s I Believe I Can Fly.

It’s simply a beautiful song.
