Lyrics & Music by Martin Shears

lyrics

Well give 95 reasons to love you
‘Cause I’ve gotta be sure it’s for real
You never know how you’re going to feel
When the 94th reason is gone
Give me 95 reasons to care
‘Cause I’ve gotta be sure you’ll be there
When the push and shove of this labor of love
Gets harder and harder to bear

I don’t wanna doubt you
But everything about you
Makes me wanna run and hide
I won’t be sticking around
Long enough for an alternative

“Cause even though you thrill me
Forever might kill me
Dead from my wounded pride
I’ve had that headache before
Now won’t you offer the cure?

And give me 95 reasons to give you
All the things that I’ll never possess
Like the desire for wealth and success
“Can’t Buy Me Love,” somebody once said
So give me 95 reasons to care
‘Cause I’ve gotta be sure you’ll be there
When all the tea in China
Won’t easily change my point of view
But 95 reasons will do

Oh 95 reasons no more excuses
Love and affection got a 1001 uses
A sensible liar is all I require
To make me believe again

Hey, give me 95 reasons to be here
‘Cause you know I’ve been here before
And when my fingers got slammed in the door
I swore I wouldn’t go there no more
So give 95 reasons to love you
‘Cause I’ve gotta be sure it’s for real
When all the tea in China
Won’t easily change my point of view
But 95 reasons will do
Hey hey, 95 reasons
