"If You're Not The One" as written by and Daniel Bedingfield....
If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call?
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

I never know what the future brings,
But I know you are here with me now,
We'll make it through,
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don't want to run away but I can't take it, I don't understand,
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you're not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away,
But I know that this much is true,
We'll make it through,
And I hope you are the one I share my life with,
And I wish that you could be the one I die with,
And I pray in you're the one I build my home with,
I hope I love you all my life

I don't want to run away but I can't take it , I don't understand,
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

'Cause I miss you body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away,
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today,
'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right,
And though I can't be with you tonight,
You know my heart is by your side

I don't want to run away but I can't take it,
I don't understand,
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way I can stay in your arms?

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. The lyrics are great. I can totally relate. It's about being so perfect for someone that you aren't with...or can't be with.....and the person just doesn't understand why they aren't together...because is so right.

    General CommentOk -honestly i must say this song didnt strike me as benig that great...until i listened to the words. Its not really my type o' music, but then i loved the words....the line that first hooked me was "If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?" .... somehow that simply summarizes the epitamy of relationships.... *Bobbie* :)

    General CommentI think it reflects the feeling of falling in love. You constantly wish them to be there and sometimes you don't understand why you feel the way you do.

    General CommentThis song is about, a guy and a girl abvious, who recently broke up, and the guy cannot understand what went wrong, and he wants her back b/c shes the one for him... you can use almost any part of this song for this but
    "If I donÂ’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
    If I donÂ’t need you then why does your name resound in my head? "
    he wants her back and is making his plee to her .... mad good song by the way
