The Reason Is

The Reason Is

music and lyrics by Rick Mealey

 

You, what told me it would be you

what told me you would be the one

what made my imagination fly

it was borne upon your breeze

 

you, did I tell you that I love you

did I tell you how you made me whole

how you changed me to the fiber

how you did it with such ease

 

you burned me down to cinders

and brought me back from out the flame

cut me down to splinters

and built me up from grain to grain

I am not what I used to be

the reason is your love for me

 

you, what told me it would be you

what told me you would change my world

from shades of grey to colors bathed

in vivid shade and hue

 

you, can I tell you how I love you

are there words to come as close as I feel

you know the language of my heart

is it enough to show you

 

you promised me tomorrow

when you took my sorrow to destroy

you held me and you made me hollow

and you filled me with your sacred joy

I don’t do what I used to do

the reason is my love for you
