"Give Me A Reason" as written by James Corr, Sharon Corr, Caroline Corr and Andrea Jane Corr....
It's not romantic here in blue
Swimming, swimming in blue
You left me lonely and confused
Question, questioning you
So soon goodbye you stole my heart
Believe, believing you
Was it a lie right from the start
Answer, answer me do

Well now my body's weak so just give me a reason
And my make-up's off so just give me a reason
And my defense's down so just give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason

You'll never know the love I felt
Wanting, waiting for you
It takes a weak heart to forget
Follow, follow it through

Well now my body's weak so just give me a reason
And my make-up's off so just give me a reason
And my defense's down so just give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason

So what's a girl like me to do
Drowning, drowning in you
And who's to save me from the blue
Carry, carry me through

Cause now my body's weak so just give me a reason
And my make-up's off so just give me a reason
And my defense's down so just give me a reason
I am strong enough so just give me a reason
Now my body's weak so just give me a reason
And my make-up's off so just give me a reason
My defense's down so just give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason
Give me a reason

What did I do wrong

    General CommentThis song has a real Simon & Garfunkel meets William Orbit with a strong melancholic thread running through it!!!

    General CommentThis song was played at my dads funeral, he loved the corrs. This song is beautiful and its (i think) about a girl who got fumped but wasnt givin a reason, and shes broken and she loves him and just wants to know why

    General Commenthow come there are no more comments on this song??
    I think it's so beautiful
    I think it could also be not only about a relationship ending ... i think that it could be about someone who at first acts like he loves her, and suddenly its all over... so he "will never know the love i felt"
    "So soon goodbye you stole my heart
    I'm believing you
    Was it a lie right from the start
    Answer, answer me do..."

    BEAUTIFUL

    General CommentActually I think you'll find that it's not "and my make-up's off so just" it's "and I'm making sausages". That makes much more sense. Winner winner chicken dinner.

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is all about longing - a recurrent theme in quite a few of The Corrs' songs - and lust.
    The story told by the lyrics is one of a short but explosive romance which is suddenly broken off by the man, only to leave the girl wondering why.
    The girl is still angry about the break-up and has difficulty getting over it.
    Yet, when she meets the man again she wants nothing more than to throw herself at him.
    Being too proud to do so - just barely -, in her mind she asks, or even begs, him to "give her a reason" to lose control.
    Her body is weak, here make-up is off, here defense is down, she is completely receptive to any advances he might make.
    She is really just hoping and waiting for even the slightest initiative or hint of his to fall into his arms.
    That is my opinion, anyway.

    General CommentI'd say he told her a whole load of lies and sweet talked her in to believing he loved her -got what he wanted from her then ran and left her alone and feeling used -A great technique that a lot of men are great at sadly they let down the decent men on this planet. I love this song and the corrs
