Just Give Me A Reason


From the very start
like a thief in the night
you'd steal my heart
And I vowed to love you forever
I gave you everything
I gave you all of me
A love that was guaranteed

now you've been acting differently
how you've been treating me
Tell me that you love me still
I need to know if this is real

just give me a reason
If this continues on i'm leaving
the love inside my heart remains
I fight in order to maintain
that once upon a time feeling
all that you're concealing
Has me feeling vulnerable inside
As our worlds continue to divide

You fail to understand
where the problem's coming from
If you thinking we are fine
You must have lost your mind
baby, the road to happiness
is far behind us now

you've been having crying spells
when I don't lie next to you some nights
there's nothing more to this
if you can't make a sacrifice

"Heaven"—is what I cannot reach!
The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
