Late last night
I told you
I cannot do this,
I cannot hold you
I'm about to be gone
There is no choice now
It cannot be done
'Cause you're not the one
(You're not the one)

I wish I could change the way I feel
I wish I could just get real
I wish I could love you
The way you love me
But it cannot be done
'Cause you're not the one

No baby, I never lied
You're not the one
Undecided and mystified
You're not the one
Out of control,
I cannot deny
You're not the one
No baby, I never lied
(Please accept my apology)

I never meant for you to see this
I never meant for you to fall in love
(You're not the one)
No I never meant for you to fall in love
'Cause you're not the one
(You're not the one)

No baby, I never lied
You're not the one
Undecided and mysified
You're not the one
Out of control,
There is no denying
You're not the one
Ooh baby, I never lied
You're not the one

Tread softly, I never could
Just not the one
Keep listening, I thought I did
You're not the one
"I love you" I never said
I cannot pretend
You're not the one
You're not the one
(Please accept my apology)
You're not the one
You're just not the one

Baby last night I told you
I cant do this
I cant hold you
I wish I could change the way I feel
But I cannot pretend
No, no

Baby, last night I told you
I can't do this, I can't hold you
I wish I could change
All of this
But I cannot deny

You're not the one
Tread softly, I never could
Keep listening, I thought I did
You're not the one
"I love you" I never said
I cannot pretend
You're not the one

    General CommentThis song has never been on a solo album. Stevie gave it to Sheryl Crow for her last album "C'mon C'mon," but it didnt make it. You can find it on the Sheryl Crow CD import single SOAK UP THE SUN, as a duet with the two ladies of rock...GREAT SONG!!!

    General Commentit is the uncomfortable moment , when you slept woth someone that fell hard and you never fell evn close to their way. It is the desperate determination to find the one, and refusing to be trapped in the wrong one , When and if they show. It is the lovelight of insistent hope that burns and keeps us from death.
