Now, what was it like when Jeff Tweedy then approached you and said, you know, I've also written some songs of my own that I would like you to sing?
Ms. STAPLES: Well, he didnt say it like that. He told me, Mavis, I have a song title in my head that I want to write for you. He hadn't written any songs yet. In fact, we sang everything we were going to sing. And then Jeff Tweedy took his guitar and he sat down and he started picking at it and picking.
He told me, he said, Mavis, Im going to give you this disc with the melody of a song. You can get familiar with the melody. And the next day, he had the lyrics and they were just great. And this is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever sang.
(Soundbite of song, "You're Not Alone")
Ms. STAPLES: (Singing) You're not alone. Im with you. Im lonely, too. Whats that song? Can't be sung by two...
I wonder, is there a chance that God has a song for you and me?
