You're the Reason I'm Living was written by Bobby Darin and recorded by him (Capitol 4897) in 1963. It reached #3 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart and #9 on the rhythm & blues chart.

Lyrics:

You're the reason I'm living

Thou you carry me through
All our life's little burdens
I'd be lost without you

1. You're the reason I do things
You're the things that I do
You're the reason I'm living
I'd be lost without you

A long, long time ago
When I was down
You took me in and showed me
True love still could be found

1. (repeat)

You're the reason I'm living
I'd be lost without you
You're the reason I'm living
I'd be lost without you
