"One and Only" as written by Michael Hunter Ochs, Jeffrey H Cohen and Teitur Lassen....
I've been wishing on a star I could never have imagined
I would land just where you are after all this lonesome travelling
Took one look in your eye, reached out to hold your hand
This is when I realized what I could never understand

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

So you want to be my friend, so you want to be my lover
With you I do confess
I can't be one without the other
That was hard for me to say
I hope I said it right
Which ever, come what may, you see I need to know tonight

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

Do you want to play these cards, do you want to lay them down?
Do you want to run away or do you want to stick around?

Do you want to be my one and only love?
Do you want to be my one and only love?

    General CommentSo what is this song about? I think it's about this guy who's been wanting to be with this girl, and finally he gets her and he wants to know if her love is true. Agree?

    It's pretty much just.... him asking if .. she is and wants to be, his one and only.

    General CommentMaybe it's fitting of my particular situation, but I feel like he's singing his proposal to her.

    "Whichever come, what may, you see I need to know tonight...do you want to be my one and only love"

    A simple statement but one that conveys such an outpouring of emotion that you can almost feel his longing for her to stop him in mid-song to answer.

    do you want to play these cards
    do you want to lay them down
