"Number One" as written by Billy Joel, Jason Keith Perry, Mark Chapman, Adam Perry, Giles Perry and Steve Swindon....
I saw my boyfriend hanging
with this girl that I hate
He didn't have to tell
why last night he was late
I can't believe what you tell me
Your lies have come undone
Now I'm living on the run
looking out for number one

I took a ride to the city
Had to get out of this place
I just can't stand the pity
When the tears fall down my face
I used to think it was over
But its only just begun
Now I'm living on the run
looking out for number one

One day you'll see me
but only when your dreaming
One day you'll say I was the one

I hitched a ride on a Greyhound
stashed away on a train
Bought a ticket for the subway
Playing guitar in the rain
I want to follow the rivers
to an island in the sun
Now I'm living on the run
looking out for number One

day you'll see me
but only when your dreaming
One day you'll say I was the one

Late at night start to fight
I just might think about him
Right now I'm feeling fine
I'm better off without him ya!

(One day you'll say I was the one)

One day you'll see me
but only when your dreaming
One day you'll say I was the one
I know that one day you'll see me
I'll haunt you when your dreaming
One day you'll say I was the one
I'm number one

    General CommentI agree with the post above this song is totally about how she can’t let go of her BF.

    This a great song, it would be cool if this song actually became Number One (on some countdown show.)
