"This Is The One" as written by Ian George Brown and John Squire....
A girl consumed by fire
We all know her desire
From the plans that She has made
I had her on a promise
Immerse me in your splendor
All the plans that I have made

This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
She's waited for

This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
She's waited for

I'd like to leave the country
For a month of Sundays
Burn the town where I was born
If only she'd believe me
Bellona belladonna
Burn me out or bring me home

This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
She's waited for

This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
I've waited for

Oh this is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
I've waited for

This is the one
Oh this is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
I've waited for

This is the one
This is the one
This is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
I've waited for

I paid her back
Then I got one
This is the one
This is the one
She's waited for

And this is the one
This is the one
Oh this is the one
This is the one
She's waited for

This is the one
Oh this is the one
Ah this is the one
This is the one
I've waited for

This is the one

    General CommentGreatest song ever. Nothing else comes close.

    What does it mean to me? Anything and everything.

    General CommentI agree that it's biblical imagery (there's early versions of it with more obviously biblical lyrics if I remember right) but the lyrics are also very suggestive of Samuel Delany's novel Dhalgren, which is set in a town called Bellona (which is out of "the country") and features among other things a literal "month of Sundays" and a heckuva lot of fire. I reckon one of them had just read it and thought it'd make good lyrics. (And they were right, 'cause "Bellona, Belladonna" sung like that is one of the best lines ever!)

    General CommentA song about anticipation. Feeling like your train is about to come, or feeling on the verge of the opportunity of a lifetime. Great tension and release. Unbelievably good song with some incredibly deft and moving ensemble playing-these guys were so simpatico and groovy they were untouchable in all of music. Despite the 80's sheen, this is a near perfect record. Every note is in place and next to none are wasted. For me this is right up there with the Beatles.

    General CommentIt's clever biblical imagery how the band put This Is The One right before I Am The Resurrection.

    General CommentThis song encapsulates everything about everything I reckon. Its such an explosive song that takes you away to another place. it gets your heart beating, and makes you think you can achieve anything. If I was a boxer, this would be the song I'd play coming into the ring. This is the One.......
