"Only One" as written by and Jason Wade....
She's got a pretty smile it covers up the poison
That she hides she walks around in circles in my head
Waiting for the chance to break me chance to take me down
Well I see the burden you gave me
It's too much to carry it's too much to bury inside
I guess you're the only one
Nobody changes I guess you're the only one
That's still doing everything else ...
You're still the only one yeah you're still the only one
Wisdom shallow oh so peeling
Now I'm up to my ankles and I'm drowning
Away in a sea sarcastic faces familiar places
Everything that's quite the same it's all confusing ...
Amusing literally tainted a picture you've painted to me
I guess you're the only one
Nobody changes I guess you're the one
That's still doing when everything else goes down
You're still the only one
We never change faces
I guess you're the only one that's still doing
Everything else goes down
Just cause the sounds in your head
Doesn't mean it has to be in mine
Don't believe what you said still can't get it out of my mind
I've tried to find myself in approval
I've already been there already done that
It got me no where it brought me nothing
But a good place to hide in no one to confide in
Now I guess you're the only one
Nobody changes I guess you're the only one
That will never change faces
I guess you're the only one

    General Commenti think that in this song jason is talking to god. he speaks of a girl who betrayed him or something. and he realises that situations and emotions change people. people can be nice one minute then nasty thenext - thats the way life is, but then he says - 'you know god, you dont change, youll always be loving and caring and youll never let me down.' thats what i think anyway

    General CommentI agree that it has to do with God. No matter how many people come and go through our lives...God is the only constant. People change all the time...but God is God to time indefinite. People can be so fake and insincere...and at some point you have to realize that the most important thing in life should not be about pleasing other people..but pleasing God.

    General Commenti always thought he was like 'you're still the only one.. etc etc,' being sarcastic.. 'hey you're so conceited, you think nothing can touch you' (and now i feel bad too, jimmyrocks27, 'cause i thought it differently too). i think i never thought about it being about God was because he says I GUESS you're the only one -- 'cause with God, there is no guessing.. He IS the only One..

    General CommentHe has really got burned by some girl. He changed himself for this girl, and afterwards, he is left with what he has become and who she really was. Then, he looks to God and realizes that no one can change Him. He has been looking for love and consistancy in romantic relationships, but it really can only be found in God.

    I love Lifehouse, they write love-songs to God. I mean, afterall, as the Church, we ARE His bride. Why shouldn't we write Him some love-songs and sonnets?
