So tell me how we got this far
You here with me
Hand in hand and standing tall
For all the world to see

I sure don’t own a magic carpet
Or have two bucks to eat
Only clumsy no good reason
But you deserve to dream

But you used to say that I
I swept you off your feet
So I’ll sit back and crack a smile

Because the only thing that matters
Is you and me, baby
The only thing that matters
Is you and me
So forget the in-between
Oh, no no no no no

I’ve never been one for superstition
But we may resort to so
Because explaining you and me
Only works well as a joke

Wasn’t this love just made for movies
To be seen on the silver screen
Or weren’t these feelings left for dreaming
To the nobodies like me

But you used to say that I
I swept you off your feet
So I’ll sit back and crack a smile

Because the only thing that matters
Is you and me, baby
The only thing that matters
Is you and me, baby
(repeat)
So forget the in-between
Oh, no no no no

So by the moonlit hide and seek
With the sun that decides to peak
Into my heart each time you speak my name

The only thing that matters
Is you and me
The only thing that matters
Is you and me
(repeat to end)

    General CommentEV is an indie wonderboy whose honest, soulful lyrics and melodies make me feel like I've reached acoustic/pop heaven on earth lol... if such a place did in fact exist. Here with "Only Thing," he combines several themes:
    1. a couple who had some odds stacked against them from the start, but manage to stay together
    2. being in a relationship where the only thing that matters is each other
    3. being a self-proclaimed "nobody", and feeling very fortunate to be with the one you're with

    This would be a great song to put on a mix cd for that special someone in your life. I can just imagine driving down an old two-lane highway, blasting this and singing at the top of my lungs with that someone special :)

    General Commentthis song is completly honest, its what a lot of self proclaimed nobodys long to say but are too scared to say because they think that its not obvious to everyone else that they have nothing. the guy will always pretend he has something to offer other than love because he will never understand that to a certain girl, the fact he has nothing else to offer is perfect, she dosent need anything else.
    i agree with the two lane highway thing above.
