"The One" as written by and Billy Lee Karen Manno....
No rush though I need your touch
I won't rush your heart
Until you feel on solid ground
Until your strength is found, girl

I'll fill those canyons in your soul
Like a river lead you home
And I'll walk a step behind
In the shadows so you shine
Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

Somebody else was here before
He treated you unkind
And broken wings need time to heal
Before a heart can fly, girl

I'll fill those canyons in your soul
Like a river lead you home
And I'll walk a step behind
In the shadows so you shine
Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

Trust in me and you'll find a heart so true
All I want to do is give the best of me to you
And stand beside you

Just ask it will be done
And I will prove my love
Until you're sure that I'm "the one"

    General CommentI love this song. It needs to be sung by a girl too, though. To me this song is about someone who would do anything for the love of another, but that person just isn't ready.. or just doesn't want to get hurt. this song reminds me of an ex.

    General Commentthis song is so right now. i am now friends with someone who i want to be with. which i am not used to after my last relationship. but this girl is so amazing that i can't do anything but think of her. i know about her past relationship and i just want to prove to her that not every guy is like that. but i don't know how she feels and i don't want to ruin the friendship we have started. so i will take it as slow as needed untill she is ready to be loved like she has always deserved. just ask and it will be done and i will prove my love..........i will walk a step behind in the shadows so you shine...........such good lyrics.
