Justina Soto – Reasons Lyrics:
cant drink my coffee when it’s colored that way
can’t find the answers in the clouds today
my shoes they won’t tie, so I guess I’ll have to stay
cause my true love and I ain’t the same

gone driving, walking but I don’t know where i’ve been
these city lights they’ve been asking me to sin
I try, try to fight them off but I know i’ll never win
cause I don’t know where I would begin
and I say

don’t don’t where the hell i’m going
got to find a reason for it
got to hang my hat up on the wall
is it enough to make or break me
got to find a way to shake me
got to hang my hat up on the wall

in times like these I’ll be taking my time
trying to put together loose ended signs
I ask you for an answer although you ain’t got the time
see the road I’ve got to travel’s only mine
and I say
and it’s so hard to get so far only for a day
cause you’ll be on your way
no one is trying so hard to be lifted from the memory cause
its a long way up from there
a long way up from there
oh a reason for it all got to find it for it all
(repeat til end)
