Notes
  • Level Of Ease: Easy - beginners may find the Bm a little hard to play at first but stick with it and make sure you use the open Bm, not the Bm (alt) which you can play once you become comfortable with barre chords.
  • D/F# means you play a D chord with an added F# bass note. There are several variations to this chord. You just need to play the one that you prefer in sound and comfort as some of them require a little stretching! If you find this chord a little awkward, simply play a normal D chord... it sounds fine.
  • The D/F# alternative shape can be played as the chart suggests - using your thumb to play the note represented by the letter 'T'. This works well if your hands are big enough to stretch the thumb and play the note. If this is too hard you can use your first finger to play a mini-barre over the first 3 strings on the 2nd fret, while your second finger will play the F# bass note on the same fret (6th string) - the 3rd finger remains the same.
  • Song Key: G Major... 1 sharp - F#
  • 4/4 Time: This means there are 4 beats per bar with each beat having the value of a quarter-note or crotchet. You can count each bar as | 1 2 3 4 | or | 1& 2& 3& 4& | etc.
  • The Chorus after the Bridge is played with drums only - I have included the chords anyway.
  • The hyphen between 2 chords means they share equal timing, e.g., | D - G | means 2 beats on D and 2 beats on G. Similarly | Dsus4 - D | means you play Dsus4 for 2 beats and D for 2 beats.

Just Give Me A Reason Lyrics

Right from the start
You were a thief
You stole my heart
And I your willing victim
I let you see the parts of me
That weren't all that pretty
And with every touch you fixed them

Now you've been talking in your sleep, oh, oh
Things you never say to me, oh, oh
Tell me that you've had enough
Of our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
We're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

I'm sorry I don't understand
Where all of this is coming from
I thought that we were fine
(Oh, we had everything)
Your head is running wild again
My dear we still have everythin'
And it's all in your mind
(Yeah, but this is happenin')

You've been havin' real bad dreams, oh, oh
You used to lie so close to me, oh, oh
There's nothing more than empty sheets
Between our love, our love
Oh, our love, our love

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
I never stopped
You're still written in the scars on my heart
You're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Our tear ducts can rust
I'll fix it for us
We're collecting dust
But our love's enough
You're holding it in
You're pouring a drink
No nothing is as bad as it seems
We'll come clean

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Just give me a reason
Just a little bit's enough
Just a second we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
It's in the stars
It's been written in the scars on our hearts
That we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again

Oh, we can learn to love again
Oh, we can learn to love again
Ohhh, that we're not broken just bent
And we can learn to love again
