"The One You Knew" as written by Gregg Wattenberg, Derek Fuhrmann and Joshua Radin....
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

Let me tell you about the way I roam
I call the road my home
So it makes the nights alone without you
Though I've travelled a million miles
You're the only thing that makes me smile
I think about my baby all the while I'm without you

So so so what I need to know know know
Is when I get home home home
Will you still be there

I've been around the way
Been around but not ok
Ah whoaaa
Cos I missed you so
I'm coming home
Just to let you know
That I missed you

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

The first time I met her
I started feeling better
So I thought I'd let her in
Now she's my everything
The reason why I sing
She turns my winter into spring
When I'm near her

So so so what I need to know know know
Is when I get home home home
Will you still be there

I've been around the way
Been around but not ok
Ah whoaaa
Cos I missed you so
I'm coming home
Just to let you know
That I missed you

Every croud I see you face
I keep looking just incase
It's all perfect but there's something outta place

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

So so so what I need to know know know
Is when I get home home home
Will you still be there

I've been around the way
Been around but not ok
Ah whoaaa
Cos I missed you so
I'm coming home
Just to let you know
That I missed you

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh

    General CommentThis song almost perfectly describes how I feel about/wanna say to my ex. We dated over four years,from freshman year of highschool to freshman year of college (he was two years older than I, and in the Air Force away for much of our relationship) Eventually, as I went out on my own, I had to do my own thing, find myself, the standard story, and I could not ask him to wait around for me (becuase that is unfair.) As things often turn out...things changed. I love him with all my heart, but he feels we are both too changed to be again what we were, and now we are both in new relationships. Although I still do long for his love and wish it could have turned out differently, this song to me descibes the epiphany I had - That through it all, at my core I was still the same girl he had always loved, and that i would always love him deep down. just because it ends doesnt mean love doesnt last. He may not be the one I am supposed to be with,but I will love him until the day I die.

    General CommentHe's leaving town to go somewhere else for a while, but comforts her saying that he'll be hers forever. He sees her sweater on her bed, realizing how perfect she is for him. But all he can think about is going out to explore the world without her, seeing what it's like to be with other girls. He has to do it, it's the only way he'll satisfy his urge and ever be content. And if she stays with him through it all, he'll end up with her because he knows that she's the best thing he'll ever have. He rationalizes all this to her and himself by saying that he'll always be the same guys she's always loved, only he'll feel a sense of completion because of his experiences. This protective rationalization is his only way of holding on to the closest thing he'll ever have to true love.
