I could love you
Baby, if you want me to
I could go and fall for you
And never even try, hey, hey

I could let you in
Baby, where nobody's been
Yeah, I'm ready and willing
To give this love a try, hey, hey

You're the reason why
(Baby you're the only reason why)
Don't wanna say goodnight
(Keep kissing me, don't wanna say goodnight)
Yeah it feels so right
(Everything is gonna be alright)
You're the reason why, hey, hey
You're the reason why, hey, hey

You're in my head
Like a song I can't forget
Wanna hear it over again
And again hey, hey

You're the reason why
(Baby you're the only reason why)
Don't wanna say goodnight
(Keep kissing me, don't wanna say goodnight)
Yeah it feels so right
(Everything is gonna be alright)
You're the reason why, hey, hey

I could love you
Baby, if you want me to
I could go and fall for you
And never even try
And never even try
No, and never even try
No, and never even try

You're the reason why
(Baby you're the only reason why)
Don't wanna say goodnight
(Keep kissing me, don't wanna say goodnight)
Yeah it feels so right
(Everything is gonna be alright)
You're the reason why, hey, hey

You're the reason why
(Baby you're the only reason why)
Don't wanna say goodnight
(Keep kissing me, don't wanna say goodnight)
Yeah it feels so right
(Everything is gonna be alright)
You're the reason why, hey, hey
You're the reason why, hey, hey
You're the reason why, hey, hey
You're the reason why, hey, hey

Come on and take my hand
I'm ready and willing
Over and over again

Song facts

"It's a love song. We're all in a good place in our lives right now, so I think it's a sentiment that the four of us really share - 'You're the reason why I want to stay here all night. You're the reason why I get up in the morning.' Leading the record with such a happy moment, such a song of contentment seemed right. Musically speaking, it was a little different. Jimi and I are singing a duet within the band harmonies, and that was pretty interesting. 'The Reason Why' we do everything these days is for the music we're making and for our families, and I think we just liked all that that meant for leading off the record." - Karen Fairchild
