"One I Love" as written by and Guy Rupert Berryman Christopher Anthony John Martin....
Could you, could you come back
Come back together
Put yourself on the band
And see us forever

Could you, could you come home
Come home forever
Surely things in the band
Keep us together

Cause you're the one I love
You're the one I love
You're the one I love
Ahhhh, ahhhh

Could you, could you come home
Could you tell me whatever
Tie youself to a mast
It's now or it's never
Could it tear us apart
It'll soon be forever
It's gonna tear us apart
Keep us together

You're the one I love
You're the one I love
Ahhh ahhh
You're the one I love
Yeah yeah you're the one

Oooooo...
Oooooo...

You're the one I love
You're the one I love
You're the one I love

    General CommentThis song is great! I thought it would be on the album, but sadly it's not. I think they should make a single out of it. It's really amazing.

    General CommentPut yourself on the band
    And see us forever

    This bit's wrong, I'm afraid. It's:

    "Put yourself on my back,
    And say it's forever."

    Sure there are things in the band?
    Keep us together

    should be:

    "Shoulders, knees and your back are
    What keeps me together"

    It'll soon be forever

    I think, this should be "Tell me forever" but I'm not sure. The other two I'm positive about.

    I really like this song. Although Coldplay are defo at their best when they're in amelancholy mood, their uptempo efforts are always damn good (God Put A smile Upon Your Face :) )

    The uptempo nature of this song goes well with the subject: the realisation that you've found the love of your life and your starting to get ready for the trails ahead. Least that's wot I get from it...

    General CommentDoes anyone know what he says in the live 2003 version of this song? Right before the break he sings something, but I've no clue what he's saying. I know in the end he's saying something like "Sing it to me oooohh..." but before that. Anyone know?

    Song ComparisonI never heard this one before, I was exposed to the 'Coldplay Live 2003' CD/DVD version of this song, "One I Love". The lyrics are slightly different. Please try to listen to it on YouTube and compare it yourself.

    Below is my attempt to translate what the 2003 lyrics are. Please take to account that this may not be 100% accurate. Thanks : D

    Could you, could you come back
    Come back together
    Put yourself on my back
    And say it's forever

    Could you, could you come home
    Come home forever
    Shoulders, knees and your bad card,
    Why keep me together?

    Cause you're the one I love
    You're the one I love
    You're the one I love
    Ahhhh, ahhhh

    Could you, could you come home
    Come home, don't simmer
    Tie yourself to a marshmallow
    It's now or it's never
    It's going to tear us apart
    Tear me forever
    It's gonna tear us apart love
    Or keep us together

    You're the one I love
    You're the one I love
    Ahhh eloooo ahhhooo

    Oooooo...Oooooo...
    Oooooo...Oooooo...
    Yo
    /This is love. Can feel you now, feel your love/
    /What? Say What?/
    /I think I'm feeding you lunch/

    Singing Oooooo...Oooooo...
    Singing Oooooo...Oooooo...

    Singing to me Ooooo... Ooooo.....
    Singing to me Ooooo... Ooooo.....
