"One Word" as written by and Suze/elson Demarchi....
Oh I wake up feeling the same way every day
Aching numb with the pain that I can't chase away
So I'm wondering who's taking up your sacred precious time
Living from day to day without a single sign
Would I lie? Oh no
One word, one letter, one line
And I'd feel a whole lot better
One look would way it's alright
And I'd feel a whole lot better

My heart breaks the way you turn your back and carry on
And my head hurts 'cause I just can't work out why it all went wrong
So I'm wondering, oh the more I think the less I understand
Leaving is easy when you know you're in command
Would I lie? oh no
One word, one letter, one line
And I'd feel a whole lot better
One look would way it's alright
And I'd feel a whole lot better

Would I try, try to keep
Just a little something that means nothing to me
Ooh why pretend that I'm in that deep
Lord, I thought you knew me, ooh yeah
One word, one letter, one line
And I'd feel a whole lot better
One look would way it's alright
And I'd feel a whole lot better

    General CommentI think this has to do with the he didn't call me theme. It's a great song though.

    General CommentAwesome song. I love Suze De Marchi's voice in this, it's really gravelly and cool.

    I partially agree with antmann but I think it's also about a girl being in love with this guy but he won't fully commit to her. He just uses her for the time being, but all she wants is one word, one letter, one line to tell her that he loves her too.

    She also tries to pretend that she doesn't care about him, but is kinda unsuccessful.
