One Good Reason

Your head keeps turning
Every time I look in your eyes
Like I can’t help but do
Could it be you’re feeling
That the word I know I’ve got to say
Will break my heart in two
But I can’t go on without some sign
Of what I mean to you

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn’t keep me away
I’d gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you’d give me one good reason
One good reason to stay

Perhaps I’m foolish
Leaving when I want to hold you
Every day and night
Maybe you’re just nervous
‘Cause I know that you’ve been hurt before
Baby, I’d treat you right
But I need some spark coming from you
Just a glimmer of light

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn’t keep me away
I’d gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you’d give me one good reason
One good reason to stay

Wish I could read your mind
Or hear what your heart is saying
Perhaps I’d find a reason for staying

If I just had one good reason to stay here
A hundred reasons to go couldn’t keep me away
I’d gladly give you a thousand lifetimes
If you’d give me one good reason
One good reason to stay
