Tracy Chapman : Give me one reason

2 Sep

I love Tracy Chapman songs. We grow up listening to songs and looking for a self and understanding in songs. Something to relate to ,something to hold on to and something to live by. In many ways they remain our first reference for life and its meanings outside our world of family,school and college. The great artistes Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Bruce Springsteen, Paul Simon and others always offer a slice of life with their songs and songwriting. Tracy Chapman is one such wonderful artiste whom listened to in growing up years and still do. Hope you like this beautiful song.

Give me one reason:

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby I got your number and I know that you got mine
But you know that I called you, I called too many times
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime
But you got to call me

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
But I’m too old to go chasing you around
Wasting my precious energy

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why I should stay
Because I told you that I loved you
And there ain’t no more to say

I love this song. Hope you like it too. Good night friends! Thank you!
