it's a real simple song, with just a few chords: A F#m D 

the picking pattern is like this:

e|---0------|
B|---2---2--|
G|---2---2--|
D|-------4--|
A|-0--------|
E|-----2----|

et cet.

the end is:

e|---------------|

E|----------4----|
lyrics:
give me one reason to stay here
and i'll turn right back around
gimme one reason to stay here
and i'll turn my back around
said i don't wanna leave you lonely
you gotta make me change my mind

baby i got your number
oh, and i know you got mine
you know that i called you
i called too many times
you can call me baby
you can call me anytime
you got to call me

gimme one reason to stay here
and i'll turn my back around (you can see me turnin')
give me one reason to stay here
and i'll turn my back around (you can see me turnin')
said i don't wanna leave you lonely
you got to make me change my mind

i dont want no one to squeeze me
it might take away my life
i dont want no one to squeeze me
it might take away my life
i just want someone to hold me
and rock me through the night

if a youthful heart can love you
yes, and give you what you need
i said there's a youthful heart can love you
oh, and give you what you need
but i'm too old to go chasin' you around
wasting my precious energy

gimme one reason to stay here
yes, and i'll turn right back around (you can see me turning)
give me one reason to stay here, 
and i'll my back around (you can see me turning)
i dont want to leave you lonely
you got to make me change my mind

baby give me one reason
give me just one reason why
baby give me one reason
give me just one reason why i should stay
said i told you that i love you
