"The Only One" lyrics

Postby my3dtvtan » 3rd Aug 09, 01:22

These are the words that I've saved
Saved for the perfect day but they wont get used
If I keep waiting on you

This is the way that I feel
I wish that it wasnt real but its more than true
I cant keep waitin on you

So open your eyes and see where Im standing
Strait in your line of sight so you
Should make up your mind
Do what it is that you need to
Cos Im not leaving

You are the only one
That I think about when Im down and out and miles away
You are the only one
When we've fallen out I wanna make it better

These are the words that I should have told ya
All of the times that I just ignored ya
I would give you everything I have
So lets just start all over again

Now that the games we've playd
Were striped down and thrown away
I can clearly see
That youve bin waiting on me

So open your eyes and see where Im standing
Strait in your line of sight so you
Should make up your mind
Do what it is that you need to
Cos Im not leaving

You are the only one
That I think about when Im down and out and miles away
You are the only one
When we've fallen out I wanna make it better

These are the words that I should have told ya
All of the times that I just think over
I would give you everything I have
So lets just start all over again

Bygones are bygones
And they should stay that way
Weve got the world at our fingers
Lets take it back together
We could make it better
We could make it better

You are the only one
That I think about when Im down and out and miles away
You are the only one
When we've fallen out I wanna make it better

These are the words that I should have told ya
All of the times that I just think over
I would give you everything I have
So lets just start all over again

Had a go at writing the lyrics an Im pretty shure this is correct but feel free to correct me.

I really love the lyrics to this one. Some great imagery and strong hooks.

Obviously he's no Ginger, but I love Scotts vocals. Im not saying I wouldnt prefair Ginger to sing it but this is how the band wanted the song represented and Im more than happy with the finished product.

Happy Happy Joy Joy :D

I thought that it was 'perfect day' and 'just ignored ya' instead, but I could be wrong.
Everything else seems spot on (not counting typos).

I stand by what I previously said about the song, but it does a pretty good job of sticking in your mind, doesn't it?

Let's hope it gets some airplay.

I know Scott and Ginger personally and Ginger gave preference to the band members in creating the record. HE wanted their insights. And he got it. If you are a Wildhearts fan you should appreciate that. He chose people specifically that he trusted cuz I think he was honestly sick of doing all the work. So cheers to Scott and cheers to Ginger. And cheers to CJ too! His influence was not necessarily the guiding point in this song necessarily but CJ and Ginger have been working man for man for a long time now. And respect is due where it is due. I love em, and have met them all. And they are really good people to put on top of all their musical genuises. Supporting you all forever.
