This song just fits me on so many levels - I love it.

 

Give Me One Reason - Tracy Chapman

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 wanna 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 wanna 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 wanna leave you lonely

But you got to make me change my mind



Baby, just give me just 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 I loved you

And there ain't no more to say

she is really an icon for all women

I like her music too.

I love her voice - especially in the song Sorry. That is some singing - and it gets me every time. EVERY time.

One of my favourites. Have to admit though, her voice gets me in more than the lyrics.

Me too - now if someone could give me one reason to stay here ...

give me one reason to stay and ill turn back around! just love this mizz b.

I love this song! But to be honest, I'd never really sat down and read the lyrics before. It's even better than I thought =D
