"You're The One I Want" as written by and John Farrar....
Running down the waterways
From things that we've done yesterday
Hiding from the weight beneath the sun

Try to watch the evening news
But that's just giving me the blues
What a day it has been
What a way to begin

You're the one I want
You're the one I need
You're the only thing that makes it easy to be

It's hard to make the moment last
Hard to keep the dreams you have
Hard to let the love inside your heart

The guards are always at the gates
Turning everyone away
But you got through
Didn't you?

You're the one I want
You're the one I need
You're the only thing that makes it easy to be
Easy

    General CommentI'm in love with this song and the way it makes me feel. I think it's about a guy wanting to be with a girl after realizing that she is the one.

    I love the line:
    The guards are always at the gates
    Turning everyone away
    But you got through
    Didn't you?

    Because my heart is guarded right now and I haven't met anyone who could slip through. But in the end that's all we want, isn't it?

    Lyric CorrectionThe posted lyrics are not for the song by Chris and Thomas. I submitted the correct lyrics weeks ago but they were never updated. Apparently this site is suffering some neglect.
