The Reason Is You

Earlier I was watching television in my usual desultory fashion and happen to catch some part of Hoobastanks latest video If I were you on MTV-2. Even though I wasn't impressed much with this song, I felt nostalgic for a while, as it just happened to be the same band's single, The Reason, was in my top singles list of 2004. I guess it was released in 2003, but in heavy rotation for more than an year in many FM stations.

Whenever I spend a lot of time sitting in front of my laptop doing some work, I prefer to tune into our local (San Francisco) radio station Star 101.3, for some decent music. While I was working on our record breaking Sun-Siebel benchmark, I got a chance to hear pretty good (and nice) singles like Hoobastank's The Reason, Lionel Richie's Just For You, Matchbox 20's Unwell, countless times; and they are sort of stuck in my head since then. All the above mentioned songs have great vocals with not so noisey music. Since my half dead brain is in an oblivious state (I am not drunk. I'm not a boozer -- feeling not so well, just to clarify) and refusing to co-operate in putting together some useful content, I chose to post the lyrics of The Reason and Just For You, for the second time in a row.

HOOBASTANK - THE REASON

Listen to a 30 sec preview at: last.fm

I'm not a perfect person
As many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you


I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That's why I need you to hear

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

And the reason is you
And the reason is you
And the reason is you

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you


LIONEL RICHIE - JUST FOR YOU
(courtesy: azlyrics.com)

Golden days
Night was play
Pain was all a world away
We went to school
We learned the rules
We trusted all they had to say

Then life took a turn
We all had to learn
And we cant go back again


And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms are open
Just for you
Just for you
Just for you

God was God
And dreams were dreams
Life was all pecan ice cream
Truth was true
And lies were lies
And we thought love would never die
But the world moved on
My illusions gone
And I don't know who to blame

And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms are open
Just for you
Just for you
And these tears I'm crying are for you
Just for you
Just for you

I'm looking for protection
Give me shelter from the storm
I just hope this light inside me
Keeps me strong

And my heart is breaking
Just for you
Just for you
And my arms they're open
Just for you
Just for you
And these tears I'm crying are for you
Just for you
Just for you

Just for you
Oh my heart is breaking
And my arms are open
Oh these tears I'm crying are just for you

Oh yeah
