You Are The Reason       
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh         
                     
 Am                                     Dm6/A  
   A shadow in the moonlight, here she comes to me,
Am            Am/G         Fmaj7 
We sit and talk about it all,
Em                  Esusē    Em                Esusē    Em
And out in the distance, a dream is over,
E                   Esusē    Em     Am
All I've been working___ for,
  
             Dm                    Dm/C         G    G7
This is not how I want you to___ see me,
             C          G/B         A - Asusē 
I have done the best I can,
A           Dm        Dsusē    Dm   G
Now the only thing____ I believe in,
       G7                    C - G7
Is a woman and a man;
  
C                  C/Bb       Fmaj7             G            
You are the reason I'll stay in the fight
C                  C/Bb            F - G
When I can't take it anymore,
C                  C/Bb     Fmaj9
You are the reason I wake in the night,
       Fm6      C                       G   Gsus4       Am - Dm6/A -  Am - Dm6/A -  Am - Dm6/A
And say that I was only dreaming___ of it all;
  
And now in the dawn light, she talks with me again,
Remember all the things we've done
Been through the bad times, and we've
Seen through the sad times,
We're stronger than before;
  
And you picked me up when I was falling,
And you gave me back my pride,
And you listen when I am calling,
And hear the man inside;
  
You are the reason I'll stay in the fight,
When I can't take it anymore,
You are the reason I wake in the night,
And say that I was only dreaming of it all,
C                 C/Bb        Fmaj9  F     Fm - C
You are the reason I'll stay in the fight.
