You are watching: Give me a reason to love you lyric

Give me a reason to love youGive me a reason to be a womanI just wanna be a womanFrom this time, unchainedWe're all looking at a different pictureThrough this new frame of mindA thousand flowers could bloomMove over and give us some room, yeahGive me a reason to love youGive me a reason to be a womanI just wanna be a woman
So don't you stop being a manJust take a little lookFrom outside when you canSow a little tendernessNo matter if you cryGive me a reason to love youGive me a reason to be a womanI just wanna be a womanIt's all I wanna be, is all, a womanFor this is the beginningOf forever and everIt's time to move overIt's all I wanna beI'm so tired of playingPlaying with this bow and arrowGonna give my heart awayLeave it to the other girls to playFor I've been a temptress too longJustGive me a reason to love you

“Glory Box”, the final track on Portishead’s Dummy, is one of their most well known songs, most notably for its unique use of “Ike’s Rap II” by Isaac Hayes, a popular sample in trip-hop and hip-hop.

The song tells a haunting narrative of romance and womanhood, featuring searing guitars and eery vocals. It’s a grand finish to the album and marks one of the highest points in the group’s career.

Barrow: It was an Isaac Hayes sample. Sometimes in space you just find something, and I hadn’t heard it used on another track before. It’s just purity, really. That’s the loop.

Utley: It’s so luscious sounding.

Barrow: They play it so quietly. I mean that’s the other thing about it.

Utley: Isaac Hayes is singing over there. He has a massive voice, and he’s right close to the microphone. It’s quiet, and there’s loads of reverb in there. The band is really chilled, so it’s a beautiful sounding record.

Barrow: It was a really trashed record, as well. It had a warp in it. It wasn’t made on very thick plastic, so it was kind of like cheap. Obviously someone left it out in the sun or something. Luckily, it didn’t go too wobbly.
