Reason To Rhyme

What in the world am I doin' here?
Three a.m. with a lukewarm beer
Blank sheet of paper and a bad idea for a song

I've scribbled and scratched my head all evenin'
Looking for a rhyme for bein'
And a reason to even keep on keepin' on
But it's nowhere to be found

Then I walk across our creaky floor
Open up our squeaky door
Watch you while you sleep
Lean over and kiss your cheek
One more time when times are gettin' tough
But I'm not down with givin' up
'Cause knowin' you belive in me's enough
Of a reason to be, a reason to try
A reason to live, a reason to die
A reason to rhyme

Am I crazy?
Am I stupid?
Are my dreams too elusive?
Do these lyrics and the music fit?

Is my big break 'round the bend?
How we gonna pay the rent?
Is it time I just learned when to quit
And face reality?

But I walk across our creaky floor
Open up our squeaky door
Watch you while you sleep
Lean over and kiss your cheek
One more time when times are gettin' tough
But I'm not down with givin' up
'Cause knowin' you belive in me's enough
Of a reason to be, a reason to try
A reason to live, a reason to die
A reason to rhyme

So I keep on rhymin'
I keep on tryin'
I keep on fightin'
When I feel
Like
Cryin'

Then I walk across our creaky floor
Open up our squeaky door
Watch you while you sleep
Lean over and kiss your cheek
One more time when times are gettin' tough
But I'm not down with givin' up
'Cause knowin' you belive in me's enough
Of a reason to be, a reason to try
A reason to live, a reason to die
A reason to rhyme

You're my reason to rhyme
Reason to live, reason to die
You're my reason
