"You're the Only One" as written by and Donald R. Williams....
Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did and you fell hard, on the ground
And you stumbled around for a good ten minutes
And I said I'd never seen anyone look so dumb before
And you laughed and said I still know how to turn you on though

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
And you're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean

And I probably forgot to tell you this
Like that time when I forgot to tell you about the scar
Remember how uncomfortable that made you feel?
See you're not what I expected
But you're the only one who knows how to handle me
And you're such a great kisser and I know that you agree

And you're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean

I hope you can forgive me for that time
When I put my hand between your legs
And I said it was small, because its really not at all
I guess there's just a part of me that likes to bring you down
Just to keep you around, because the day that you realise
How amazing you are you're gonna leave me

You're the only one who
Holds my hair back when I'm drunk and get sick
You're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean yeah

You're the only one who
Drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams
And you're the only one who
Knows exactly what I mean, exactly what I mean

Well I saw you with your hands above your head
Spinning around, trying not to look down
But you did and you fell hard on the ground

    General Commentto me,...this song kind of hints upon an abusive relationship(both physical and mental)...I dont know,...I could be wrong,..but I just get that feeling.

    "i guess there's just a part of me
    that likes to bring you down
    just to keep you around
    cause the day that you realize how amazing you are
    you're gonna leave me"

    "and you're the only one who
    drags me kicking and screaming through fast dreams"

    General CommentI heard her talking about the song and she said that each chorus is about a different boyfriend and he feeligns towards him.

    I think that's a really great idea for a song. It's pretty p-i-m-p.

    General CommentI think that she really loves her boyfriend and thinks that he means the world to her. It kinda reminds me of how a lot of us fell towards our boyfriends and crushes.

    General CommentI don't know if any of you have ever listened to Ani Difranco, but this girl sounds like she's trying to sing like her.

    These two parts are something I can relate to... unfortunately, I hate that person now, because that's the only way I won't end up hurt. But I think she's talking about how she cut herself and she told the guy and he got all freaked out but also understood and took it the way one should take it.
