Tracy Chapman

Dear Students,

Do you know Tracy Chapman? Well, for those of you who don’t know her, she is a very talented American singer – besides having a beautiful voice, her English is easy to understand, so,  if you wish to improve your listening skills – what about listening to her songs?? What does this title mean? Could you get the idea of the song?

Give me one reason

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby I got your number and I know that you got mine
But you know that I called you, I called too many times
You can call me baby, you can call me anytime
But you got to call me

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I don’t want no one to squeeze me, they might take away my life
I just want someone to hold me and rock me through the night

This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
This youthful heart can love you and give you what you need
But I’m too old to go chasing you around
Wasting my precious energy

Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Give me one reason to stay here
And I’ll turn right back around
Because I don’t want leave you lonely
But you got to make me change my mind

Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why
Baby just give me one reason, Give me just one reason why I should stay
Because I told you that I loved you

“Give me one reason”, tenho quase certeza que esse título significa algo do tipo “Me dê uma razão”, sendo assim a proposta da letra da música já fica bem dedutível… Pelo o que entendi, fala sobre uma mulher que está cansada de correr atrás de um cara qualquer, e pede razões, motivos para continuar a insistir nesse romance, nesse amor. Acertei?
Beijos e boa semana, teacher!

Eu sinceramente não entendi a música não. :/
