[Intro]



[Verse Riff]


[Verse 1]
E                     C#m
    I'm not a perfect person
                                      E
There are many things I wish I didn't do
                 C#m
But I continue learning
                                    Asus2
I never meant to do those things to you
                              B11
And so I have to say before I go
                        E
That I just want you to know
 

[Chorus 1]
                        C#m
I've found a reason for me
                        Asus2
To change who I used to be
                       B11
A reason to start over new
                  E
And the reason is you



[Verse 2]
                      C#m
I'm sorry that I hurt you
                                     E
It's something I must live with everyday
                           C#m
And all the pain I put you through
                                Asus2
I wish that I could take it all away
                                    B11
And be the one who catches all your tears
                         E
Thats why I need you to hear


[Chorus 2]
                        C#m
I've found a reason for me
                        Asus2
To change who I used to be
                       B11
A reason to start over new
                  D
And the reason is you


[Bridge] 
                  E
And the reason is you 
                  D
And the reason is you 
                  E
And the reason is you


[Verse 3] 
E                       C#m
     I'm not a perfect person 
                                    Asus2
I never meant to do those things to you 
                              B11
And so I have to say before I go 
                         E
That I just want you to know


[Chorus 3] 
                        C#m
I've found a reason for me 
                        Asus2
To change who I used to be 
                       B11
A reason to start over new 
                  E5
And the reason is you 
                       C#m
I've found a reason to show 
                        Asus2
A side of me you didn't know 
                        B11
A reason for all that I do 
                  E
And the reason is you
