I could be the one
I could be the one

I wonder who,I've got to be
For You to wanna use me
I do not always have just the right words to say

But You've taught me simple things
That I'd love the chance to bring
To a world of people who just simply need You

Doesn't matter where I'm from
Where I am
How far I've come
Doesn't matter where I live
Or what I have
You want my life
Doesn't matter who I know
Or what I've done
You Take it all
You want me as I am

I could be the one
Someone You're looking for
I don't have much to give
Lord, I'm ready
And through You
I could be the one
Whatever You want me to do
I will hold on to
What You say can be done
I could be the one

It is amazing to see
That You'll chose people like me
Who get off track, fall, crashin' down to the ground
But that's when You pick me up
And show Your strength is enough
You can use a broken heart to heal a broken life

Doesn't matter where I'm from
Where I am
How far I've come
Doesn't matter where I live
Or what I have
You want my life
Doesn't matter who I know
Or what I've done
You Take it all
You want me as I am

I could be the one
Someone You're looking for
I don't have much to give
Lord, I'm ready
And through You
I could be the one
Whatever you want me to do
I will hold on to
What you say can be done


I could be the one
Someone You're looking for
I don't have much to give
Lord, I'm ready
And through You
I could be the one
Whatever you want me to do
I will hold on to
What you say can be done
I could be the one

Bright, Bright
Shooby-Doop, Shooby-Doop
Bright, Bright
Shooby-Doop, Shooby-Doop-Doop
Bright
You take the crazy things
You take the weakest things
You use the foolish things
To show Your glory
Lord take my broken heart
Take all of my mistakes
Please take all of me
I want to show how great You are

I could be the one
Someone You're looking for
I don't have much to give
Lord, I'm ready
And through You
I could be the one
Whatever you want me to do
I will hold on to
What you say can be done
I could be the one

If You say

    General Commentwhen i first heard it on the radio, i immediatly assumed it was about some guy she fell i love with but, when i looked up the lyrics on the net for an audition, i learned the words off and started to think their meaning was tilting more towards god then just some guy. well thats my opinion anyway. c ya xxx

    General CommentConsidering Stacie says "Lord I'm ready, and through You I could be the One", I'd say you're correct.

    General CommentI love this song! I think for about half this song I just listened and assumed it was about a guy, but after closer listening and checking the lyrics it is infact about God. I'ts a really nice song and despite it's sound which is catchy and 'light hearted' maybe, it has a very nice and deep meaning.
    "You can use a broken heart to heal a broken life" That line just rings true, and is without a doubt my favourite : )

    General CommentTHIS SONG IS DEFINITELY ABOUT GOD'S BEAUTIFUL LOVE. SHE IS SAYING THAT SHE AND EVERYONE ELSE IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR GOD'S LOVE, BECAUSE GOD IS SO LOVING AND MERCIFUL. THIS IS WHAT SHE MEANS BY:
    1) It is amazing to see
    That You'll chose people like me
    Who get off track, fall, crashin' down to the ground
    But that's when You pick me up
    And show Your strength is enough
    You can use a broken heart to heal a broken life
    2) Doesn't matter where I'm from
    Where I am
    How far I've come
    Doesn't matter where I live
    Or what I have
    You want my life
    Doesn't matter who I know
    Or what I've done
    You Take it all
    You want me as I am

    I could be the one
    Someone You're looking for
    I don't have much to give

    I LOVE THIS SONG!
