‘You Are The Reason’ is a song written and performed by British singer-songwriter Calum Scott. Co-written by Jon Maguire and Corey James Sanders, this song was released in November 2017.
Primarily the lyrics suggest that this song is about regret coming from a broken relationship, the struggle in getting over it, the craving and the willingness to go to any length to have his lover back into his life, and the realization that it is perhaps too late.
The song was shot in Kyiv, Ukraine. While the song is about a failed relationship, the video makes it more emotionally resonant, narrating small stories of love and long-distance longings; highlighting how we all need love and yearn to be with the ones that love us.
This universal vibe of love coming from the video is perhaps why this ballad is powerful and touched many hearts in a beautiful way, making this song peak charts and a huge commercial success worldwide. Calum said, “I wrote this song to say thank you to those special people who make our lives better, simply because they’re in it.”
‘You Are The Reason’ is about love, gratitude, and appreciation. Calum’s soft rendition and soothing voice evoke an emotional ride.
