Michael Grimm - The Reason Lyrics



The sweet taste in my mouth
The chill down my spine
You're every man's dream
A sight for sore eyes
Yeah, I was so lost, Got in my own way
Your love shattered the darkness, into a brighter day
You're my eyes when I'm blind
The truth when I told, you are the reason that I am at all

I won't let you go
Girl, I'll keep you close by
Yeah, I'm gonna need you, my love, mm mm mm
Said when life is unkind
You're here to comfort me
When trouble is around
With you there ain't nothing
That could ever hold me down
You're the air that I breathe
The net when I fall
You are the reason that I am at all

When the sun comes up everyday
I thank God that I found my way, to you

When I close my eyes each and every night
I know everything will be alright
(feels so) feels so damn good (feels so damn good)
I'm talking about...

The sweet taste in my mouth
The chill down my spine
You're every man's dream, ooh yes you are
Said a sight, a sight for sore eyes
Yeah, I was so lost, I Got in my own way
Said Your love shattered the darkness, Into a brighter day
You're my eyes when I'm blind
The truth when I told, now you are the reason, that I am at all

You're the air that I breathe
The net when I fall
Honey, you are the reason that I am at all, mm
(You are) just wanna hug and kiss you baby (you are)
Just wanna feel you all night long (you are the reason)
(you are) I need your love, (you are) I need your sweet love (you are)

    "NOT!!"

  60. wayne blackwell

    Things may hot up now here in NZ...watch this space :)

  61. kjerstin seyfried

    @wayne blackwell - THX FOR PROMOTING MICHAEL IN NEW ZEALAND !!! PEOPLE EVERYWHERE NEED TO HEAR THIS GENTLE MAN'S AMAAAZING VOICE & GUITAR SKILLS..WATCH HIS VIDEO: 'LAS VEGAS SUN INTERVIEW"..A MAN W/GREAT HEART & CHARACTER..THX AGAIN!!

  62. wayne blackwell

    Why has Michael had a NO1 hit in the USA yet?? are they tone deaf??

    Lynne Bacher

    wayne blackwell There are still so many of us that put Michael above any other artist and it defies reason that he hasn't exceeded every American artist on the charts.

    Arm Neilstrong

    Being number 1, especially in America, has nothing and I mean NOTHING to do with talent..you LITERALLY have to be a slave to the agenda that the pop, R&B or rock is promoting...which is sick beyond measure...

  63. ToxicCure

    @Arrethusa

  64. Lisa J

    YOU are awesome, Andrew.. Wow. I love this song.. you and Michael are talented. I'm a writer, not of music, but of poems, short stories and news.. It's takes a lot to write but when you have a PASSION for it, it's not like "work." Great job with this song.

  65. Andrew Kastner

    Thanks for the compliments, I co-wrote "The Reason", with Michael in 2003 in California. I wrote 17 songs with him that year. 8 of those original songs along with 2 covers, are on a new album that was released on 9/1/12, called "Moment In Time" check it out at the freerollrecords dot come website. There are lots of great Michael songs like "Livin On Faith" I just got back from Las Vegas where I was shooting a video on that song with Michael. Stay tuned for that video. Thanks Andrew

  66. Zudick1960

    Do i really need to say 1 lousy word? OK done.

  82. thekidnextdor

    I will dedicate this song to my girlfriend Raluca. I hope she sees this message too...
    I love you Raluca!

  83. Jalicia Lewis

    Micheal is an amazing singer. I LOVE HIM!!!

  84. AngelHatchets

    @dizzielday exactly, he is one of the few people that can actually sound better live than in the studio. to me that is a rare quality. I love metallica(not comparing Grimm to them) but they sound better studio than live in my opinion.

  85. AngelHatchets

    It's a shame he isn't in a bigger positive spotlight, yet the industry is blind to people like him. I guess he needs to cheat on his wife and hit her so he can be a bigger star..??

  86. guitarman0365

    where are all these songs coming from christ? i only ever see one michael grimm cd available but he has way to many songs that are not on the cd I have

  87. Brieanna Qualls

  96. Nick W

    Grimm... stay the same,, inspire people wid ur voice... :)

  97. Sonny634

    Do I sense a hint of country influence?

  98. doogleandalix

    So, he can sing his butt off , play guitar like the blues masters and write this soulful ballad which could easily be a #1 hit if promoted - What can't this guy do and where have they been hiding him ? SO MUCH better than anything out on the radio and we have to rely on a tv show to showcase this kind of talent . we are served Bieber and Gaga and techno crap and guys like this go unsigned for years ??????

  99. Nevnyla

    a bit of Arron Neville in his voice
