"The Only Thing" as written by and Richard Melville Hall....
All I need is the air we breathe
All I need is the air I breathe
All I need is the air we breathe
All I need is the air I breathe

There's so many things we need so desperately
And the TV preaches, we can't live without them
You tell me what is need, I'll tell you what I believe
If I owned the world without you it would all be worthless

'Cause you are everythin', the only thing that matters
You are everythin', the only thing I need
You are everythin', the only thing that matters
Yes you are everythin', you are the air I breathe

What if someday we took all their toys away
You think they'd find the strength to go on living
'Cause deep inside I know if I lost everything I owned
I'd be a king as long as you're beside me

'Cause you are everythin', the only thing that matters
'Cause you are everythin', the only thing I need
Our love is everythin', the only thing that matters
Yes you are everythin', you are the air I breathe

The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe

I hope someday they find a place to bid online
Where all lost souls can buy their life some meanin'
All I know we'll survive, all we need is more time
As long as we've got love and only ocean

'Cause we are everythin', the only thing that matters
We are everythin', there's nothin' else I need
Our love is everythin', the only thing that matters
Yes, you are everythin', you are the air I breathe

The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe

You are like a Saint, the only Saint that matters
You are everythin', there's nothin' else I need
'Cause you are everythin', the only thing that matters
Our love is everythin', you are the air I breathe
You are everythin', you are the air I breathe

The air I breathe
The air I breathe
The air I breathe
...

    General CommentThis is one of those wonderful wonderful songs which, when you listen to it, it always manages to bring the one you love right to the front of your thoughts. I agree that it's a beautiful song.

    General CommentThis was me and my ex-boyfriend of 9 month's song. His plan was to surprise me when I woke up by bringing me my valentines day present and having the song play as I woke up. I woke up as he walked into the room so that night when we got back from dinner we layed in bed together and he sang it to me....
    ::sigh::
    Love can be such a bitch.
