Poppe, Maddie - The Reason Lyrics




Sitting at a booth, staring outside
Wondering if I'll ever come across the right guy
Listening to words as he says it's the end
Then he asked me if I still wanna be friends
And I said, No. No, no, no. No, no, no. Just let me go
But first...

Just give me a reason
Just a reason why
Cause all these questions in my head are bottling up inside
Just give me a reason even if it breaks my heart
Maybe then it won't hurt so bad when we're miles apart
But I want to thank you, cause you cut me off at just the right time
You didn't drag it out forever
And you only made me cry for a little while

So, I wake up the next day and I'm feeling good
But I'm wondering why I'm not crying like an ex-girlfriend should
But sometimes when I'm all alone and I'm feeling small
I think to pick up my old phone and just give him a call
And I think, No. No, no, no. No, no, no. Just let him go
But first...

There's gotta be a reason, just one reason why
He tried to take my heart, instead he took my summertime
There's gotta be a reason, even if it breaks my heart
Maybe then it won't hurt so bad when we're miles apart
But I want to thank you, cause you cut me off at just the right time
You didn't drag it out forever
And you only made me cry for a little while

But you let me fall in love so fast
You brushed me off just like this, just like that
And I said, No. No, no, no. No, no, no. (But you let me fall in love so fast)
And I said, No. No, no, no. No, no, no. (You brushed me off just like this, just like that)

Still I wanna thank you
Because you cut me off at just the right time
You didn't drag it out forever
And you only made me cry for a little while
Just a little while

  2. Bob Allison

    She wrote this song about me. One of the kids I work with went to HS with her dad Trent. I had to break it off with Maddie because of the 47 years between us. And she treats me like this...

  14. Thomas Wilcox

    Heard you on the radio today, don’t watch American Idol. Your humble demeanor and local ties made me a fan without hearing a song. Now that I heard you sing, I’m a big fan. Stay humble and chase that dream, same advice I give my kids.

  15. Courtney faith

    Maddie, I love you so much!! You are so talented! You are my favorite on American Idol!! You better win!!
