"One Of These Days" as written by and Michelle Branch....
I didn't notice
But I didn't care
I tried being honest
But that lead me nowhere
I watched the station
Saw the bus pulling through
And I don't mind saying
A part of me left with you

[Chorus]
One of these days
I won't be afraid of staying with you
I hope and I pray
Waiting to find a way back to you
'cause that's where I'm home

Did I make you nervous?
Did I ask for too much
Was I not deserving one second of your touch?

[Chorus]

What would you do if I could have you?
Oh if I could
I'd let you feel everything I'm thinking
Wouldn't that be nice?
One of these days
I won't be afraid of staying with you

    General CommentThis song is very close to my heart, the second verse is something I've experienced first hand. It's a very good song, with nice lyrics. And her voice sounds really sweet on the album.

    I love that part a lot :). It's clear that what Michelle is trying to say is that she's waiting for her ex to come back to her and all she can do is wait until all the bad experiences of the past have blown over and she can finally get back with him.

    She questions her ex as to what went wrong in the relationship...

    "Did I make you nervous?
    Did I ask for too much?
    Was I not deserving
    Once I came to your touch?"

    This song in particular is very personal to Michelle and I love the way she sings it in a way to show exactly how she feels about this guy. The piano adds a nice touch too ^_^.

    General CommentThe second verse is:
    "Did I make you nervous?
    Did I ask for too much,
    Was I not deserving
    One second of your touch"

    And in the first line is "I didnt notice"

    And the third verse is:
    "What would you do if I could have you?
    Oh if I could.
    I'd let you feel everything I'm thinking,
    Wouldn't that be nice?
    Wouldn't that be nice."

    But yeah, enough corrections even though I'm sure theres more, but yeah, I related to this song sooo much. I was scared to get back together with my ex bcuz I felt I would fall for him and I didnt want that this early. and the part "What would you do if I could have you? Oh if I could. I'd let you feel everything I'm thinking, wouldnt that be nice? wouldnt that be nice." Thats just me pretty much. I have a hard time trusting people and letting them in, but thats all he wanted from me. Ugh! I love all her songs, but I hate listening to Hotel Paper, cuz EVERY SINGLE ONE of her songs makes me think of him..

    General CommentAwesome lyrics, My fave of hers.. I just somehow find it personal and just devine.. The piano is calming but unlike some other songs, doesn't make you feel depressed.. Love it.

    So true. She really loves this guy and she just wants to know what went wrong with the relationship and she is wondering how to fix it so that she can be with him again because she feels like she belongs there in his arms.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song, but.....wow, these lyrics are way wrong!!

    I bet you didn't notice---->I didn't notice

    Once I came of your touch ----->One second of your touch

    I'd let you feel everything you can get---->I'd let you feel everything I'm thinking

    Wouldn't that be enough----->Wouldn't that be nice
