Hoobastank – The Reason lyrics

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do


But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you


I'm sorry that I hurt you
It's something I must live with everyday
And all the pain I put you through
I wish that I could take it all away
And be the one who catches all your tears
That's why I need you to hear

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is You [x4]

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found out a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
And the reason is you

I've found out a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

    My husband passed away 4 yrs. Ago, in a car accident and the day he died, this song was playing on the radio. I was so angry after the accident. I played back that entire day over and over, what could I have done to prevent it from happening. Like most couples, we fought about the little things, so I know it wasn't my fault. When I hear this song, it reminds me of him. I just imagine him saying these words to me, letting me know that everything will be all right.

    This song really means alot to me. My ex-girlfriend showed me the way after she broke-up with me because I was the way I had always been.
    Song has a great meaning. Its about losing that special someone just for being the way you are. Yet, when you lose that someone, you realize that this is not the person you want to be. You decide that you are going to change and be a better person. However, no matter what you do, you can't change the past. But!, you can prevent a repeat in the future. It just took that painful experience to realize what you were. And now, that experience with that special someone is the reason you have changed.

    This song is something that I can relate to because it makes me think that my own mother will change. When this song says that I am not a perfect person I think that it is trying to tell us that nobody is perfect. Also that we all make mistakes might take some time to be forgiven but eventually in life they will. Nobody can be perfect except by being who they are unless they have someone who they want to change for. This song is my strength for when ever I need a pick me up moment in life. This song can have so many meanings for different and unique people out here in this world.

    This is about changing yourself because of your past that you don't want to happen again and there he goes saying sorry for the girl he cheated while there committed to each other. But who knows where not perfect. We should give chances to the people who made mistakes to us. And don't you realize that we are not perfect to and of coares we also made mistakes to. We to admit it sometimes.

    Definitely no one is perfect. Its about forgiveness. Loving the other person inspite of their mistakes. If some one thinks you are enough reason for them to change and acknowledge their mistakes theyve made and have the courage to admit it then you should forgive them. Let them show you they can change and give them a chance to prove it to you. Everyone one grows from mistakes. Even if you are on either side of the coin. If you made the mistake; youve realized you were wrong and you wont make it again because you want to change. If you are the recepical end of this song than forgiving someone you love makes you an even better reason. The answer is always to love more and never quit. No one is perfect but we are all a work in progress. Grow in love!
