"The Reason"

I have heard this song on the Christian Radio station when sung by Julian Drive. Well this past Tuesday, they came to our church for a concert. The lead singer mentioned that this song is from the secular realm of music but when he listened to the words, he wondered why a Christian artist had not recorded it. So they did, and after hearing the words in the context of singing as worship to God...I see why.

I'm not a perfect person
There's many things I wish I didn't do
But I continue learning
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

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

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is You

I'm not a perfect person
I never meant to do those things to you
And so I have to say before I go
That I just want you to know

I've found a reason for me
To change who I used to be
A reason to start over new
and the reason is you

I've found a reason to show
A side of me you didn't know
A reason for all that I do
And the reason is you

I liked that long anyway, but I'd never thought of it in a spiritual sense till now.
