Give me one reason to stay here

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 to leave you lonely, you got to make me change my mind

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

Give me one reason to stay here and I’ll turn right back around
(you can see me turning)
Give me one reason to stay here and I’ll turn right back around
(you can see me turning)
Said I don’t want to 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
(take away my life)
I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
(take away my life)
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night
(rock me through the night)

This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
(give you what you need)
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
(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
(you can see me turning)
Give me one reason to stay here and I’ll turn right back around
(you can see me turning)
Said I don’t want to 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
Because I told you that I loved you and there ain’t no more to say
