Watching you watching me,
A fine way to fall asleep.
The neighbors fight,
As we both rest our eyes.

Hands in the fallen snow;
Numb to the winter cold,
But we don't mind,
'Cause we'll get warm inside.

You're the reason I come home.
You're the reason I come home, my love.
You're the reason that when everything I know falls apart...
Well, you're the reason I come home.

Paper doll silhouettes,
Fingertips on window glass;
The street's asleep,
So I breathe you in deep.

The tragedies of chemistry,
People dream of what you and me
Have found...
Effortlessly.

You're the reason I come home.
You're the reason I come home, my love.
You're the reason that when everything I know falls apart...
Well, you're the reason I come home.

And for a long time, I remember,
Saying prayers for something perfect,
Saying prayers for someone kind.
It's in my head,
We're spinning circles down the avenues instead.

You're the reason I come home.
You're the reason I come home, my love.
You're the reason that when everything I know falls apart...
Well, you're the reason I come home

    Song MeaningActually Alyssa this song is more of Ron explaining why a guy would come home instead of be out. This song is about a guy who is in a strong relationship, and the only reason he comes home to his significant other instead of head to a bar or something is because of her.

    An amazing song.

    General CommentRon is singing about the perfect relationship. The one we all want and even pray to find.
    Two people that go so perfect together that is beyond comprehension.
    The world outside can fall apart but it doesn´t matter as long as they are together, as long as they feel each other side by side under the warm sheets.
    Fairytalish but beautiful.

    General CommentLove this song.

    I think this song is about appreciation for love.

    Love isn't hard to find it finds you, but to find someone who appreciates the love that you share and to appreciate it yourself that is hard to find.

    I'm lucky I found a girl who loves me and would probably take a bullet for me.

    I think people forget the small things that make love a great thing just look at the person you love and think of the good times clear your mind of the bad and you will soon realise how perfect your love is.

    Perfect love is there people just forgot to look.

    My OpinionI honestly cannot believe that no one has commented on this song yet!
    I know that Ron Pope isn't a big artist, but come on! I personally think that this is one of his best songs, and it is soooo cute.
    I think it's about a guy who has a girl back home, but he doesn't live there anymore and has no reason to go home or maybe he just doesn't want to go home but when he thinks of her he wants to go home, or obviously, as the title says, she is the only good reason he goes home.

    General Commenti can definitely relate to this song. with my fiance being in the military.. it just fits perfectly. he hates the town, and doesn't care to come home.. other then to come home & see the person he loves. he explains that they fit so perfectly together without even making an effort. it just works for them. and she's all he has to look forward to... coming home to.
