    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 and I know that you got mine
    You know that I've called you, I've 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
    Said I don't wanna 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
    And rock me through the night

    This youthful heart can love you, yes, and give what you need
    This youthful heart can love you, boy, and give what you need
    But I'm too old to go chasing you around wasting my precious energy

    Give me one reason to stay here, yes, and I'll turn right back around
    Give me one reason to stay here, whow, and I'll turn right back around
    Said I don't wanna leave you lonely
    You got to make me change my mind

    Baby just gives me one reason
    Give me just one reason why
    Baby just gives me one reason
    Give me just one reason why I should stay
    Because I told you that I loved you and there ain't no more to say

      LOVE THIS SONG. Heard it for the first time when Jordin Sparks performed it on American Idol.

      I ADORE this song, it has such a feel good chilled out vibe to it. along with fast car, talking bout a reveloution and baby can i hold you; this is one of my fav songs by her!

      minor point "She needs a reason to stay with the man" Tracy Chapman is gay (duh?) so its infact about another woman

      "I don't want no one to squeeze me/They might take away my life..."
      Swooning blues groove. So Southern. Tracy's vocal rumbles so deeply. Sensual.

      [b]This song has a lot of meaning. She needs a reason to stay with the man and she doesn't want to leave him but he has to give a good reason not to!
