They say love hurts
I wrote that book
I climbed that wall I had one look
But you just came around
To say hello

The streets were filled
With guilty hearts
And here was I right from the start
And I lost everything
When I lost you

So tell me baby why-y-y-y
Should I let you go
Give me 20 good reasons
I need to know, yeah

And at that point
There was no pain
There was no sky
There was no rain
For all there was was you
And your sweet face

But life is life
And things will change
Like scenes upon an actor's stage
Tomorrow comes today
For all we know

So tell me baby why-y-y-y
Should I let you go
Give me 20 good reasons
I need to know, yeah
Give me 20 good reasons
Give me 20 good reasons
Give me 20 good reasons
To let you go

So tell me baby why-y-y-y
Should I let you go
Give me 20 good reasons
I need to know, yeah
Tell me baby why-y-y-y
Should I let you go, yeah
Give me 20 good reasons
I need to know, yeah
Give me 20 good reasons
Give me 20 good reasons
Give me 20 good reasons

    General Commenti think this song is telling to story of his first love.
    the first paragraph for me is saying that he didnt belive in love .. until he met HER.
    he then goes on to say how he lost everything, when he lost her. and while he realizes things will change ("But life is life. And things will change.") before you want them to ("Tomorrow comes today"). he still doesnt want her to go...

    so yeah .. pretty simple .. something many ppl have experience . wich is why it seems so relatable

    General CommentI think this song can generally be about someone whose relationship just ended, but they still love the significant other.. OR.. it could be about someone whose faced some sort of rejection, but they're still persistant to hang on and never let go. Just my interpretation. :)

    Great song.

    General CommentRemember, kids, you're not in love that young. I mean, I'm 16 and I know I haven't been in love. If you think you're in love at that age, then you're an idiot. You need to ask yourself, the girl/boy you 'love', do you want to be with them FOREVER?
