Hoobastank – The Reason – Lyrics and Video

I haven’t heard this song in quite a few years. It seems every day as I was driving to work in the mid 2000s this song would end up playing at some point. Even though I heard it many many times, I still felt the need to crank it up and sing along.

Although this song is hugely popular in my home country, I realize that most of my visitors are from other parts of the world, so I thought I would share it here with all of you.

Crank it up, and enjoy.

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 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 every day
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 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 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 a reason to show
A side of me you didn’t know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you
