Give Me One Reason
Tracy Chapman Lyrics


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
Said I don't wanna leave you lonely
You got to make me change my mind

Baby, I got your number, oh, 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
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
Said I don't want leave you lonely
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, oh, and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you, yes, and give you what you need
I said this youthful heart can love you, oh, 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
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
Said I told you that I loved you
And there ain't no more to say

Tracy has an amazing voice. I think she didn’t quite get where she was destined to be. I feel like a singer of her caliber should have been much more famous and played on the radio significantly more.

Jess Rivera

Ahead of her time in our society yet forever timeless!

Pappy Bones

Maybe she should have gotten more radio play but lets be honest.....that would take away some of the magic of her music.

Joseph Bossman

She didn't want the limelight.

New Revelation Universe

She got where she was going. She's amazing and followed her path. ❤

ingrid george

I get the feeling that she didn't want the attention.

She is one of the artists that has the most unique voice and singing style.

Angie McCrory

She started off and coffee shops and she's a folk singer and p and if she wanted to go find her she could have enjoyed singing in these coffee shops and she just enjoy people and will you can tell by her music she was talking about life p her life she was brilliant p see you at a message across to think that's basically what you wanted to do

Holly Waller

Isn't the guitarist the singer from LP also? Another great artist that isn't acknowledged properly. Talent! Thank you ladies!!
