​Lookin' For A Reason

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Mardi Gras (1972) and on the compilation album Chronicle, Volume Two (1986).

I'm lookin' for a reason to stay.
I'm all wound up and tied in knots today.
I'm lookin' for a reason not to go.
When the morning comes, I'll be on my way.

Ev'ry night I ask myself again
Just what it was that made our dream begin.
It seemed like a good idea way back then.
But I'm wond'rin' now what daydream took me in.

I'm lookin' for a reason to stay.
I'm all wound up and tied in knots today.
I'm lookin' for a reason not to go.
When the morning comes, I'll be on my way.

Yesterday I tried once more to find
A way to share the trouble on my mind.
It seems like you turn away ev'ry time.
I used to like it here, I can't remember why.

I'm lookin' for a reason to stay.
Hey, I'm all wound up and tied in knots today.
I'm lookin' for a reason not to go.
When the morning comes, I'll be on my way.

I'm lookin' for a reason to stay.
Yeah, I'm all wound up and tied in knots today.
I'm lookin' for a reason not to go...
