"The Reason" as written by Carole King, Mark Hudson and Greg Wells....
I figured it out
I was high and low and everything in
Between
I was wicked and wild baby you know
What I mean
'Till there was you yeah you
Something went wrong
I made a deal with the devil for an
Empty I.O.U.
Been to hell and back but an angel was
Looking through

It was you yeah you
It's all because of you
You are the reason
You are the reason I wake up every day
And sleep through the night
You are the reason, the reason
In the middle of the night
I'm going down 'cause I adore you
I want to floor you
I'm giving it up

No more running around spinning my
Wheel
You came out of my dream and made it
Real
I know what I feel

It's you
It's all because of you
You are the reason
You are the reason I wake up every day

And sleep through the night
You are the reason, the reason
In the middle of the night
I'm going down 'cause I want you

I want to touch you
I want to floor you
You are the reason, baby
You are the reason
You are the reason I wake up every day
And sleep through the night
You are the reason, the reason

    General CommentOpening her 97 album with this song was a smart decision. "The Reason" is undoubtedly one of the strongest tracks of "Let's Talk About Love", vocally, lyrically and musically.
