"You Are The One" as written by and Chad/dawson Petree....
Black rose and a radio fire
It's so contagious
It's just like something changing my mind
I'm gonna take what's evil

Your cover melting inside
With wide eyes you tremble
Kissing over and over again
Your God knows his faithful

I try, to digest my pride
But passion's grip I fear
When I climb, into shallow vats of wine
I think I almost hear, but it's not clear

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

Spin faster shouting out loud
You can't steal what's paid for
It's just something hurting again
Murdersome, she's painful

You so believe your own lies
On my skin your fingers
Runaway until the last time
We're gonna lose forever

When you try, don't try to say you won't
Try to crawl into my head
When you cry, 'cause it's all built up inside
Your tears already said, already said

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

You'll never be alone again

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

You are the one
You'll never be alone again
You're more than in my head, you're more

Alone again

    My InterpretationPersonally, I think this song is about a couple and their relationship. Each partner is telling their point-of-views throughout a really bad part of their relationship. The first pov of the man is that their relationship is becoming stagnant or boring and begins to be look at other women, "Its so contagious...such something changing my mind," and he ends up cheating with another woman, "Im gonna take whats evil." The woman knows and speaks about how his trembling eyes and actions are giving him away. She feels that they are just acting like nothing is wrong, but knows that guilt is eating him alive. He in turn, feels that he can't swallow his pride and tell her what happened, because he is worried about the reprecussions and that she might leave him or he may hurt her. He then starts trying to drink his problems away, but cannot find full release there either. He then repeats the chorus explaining how he realized how much she means to him. They then end up having an argument and he keeps lying until he finally tells the truth. He then feels "you can't steal what's paid for" as in, you cant change the past and he cannot do anything more about it. He feels as though he has "murdered" her heart, and this causes him much pain as well. In her part, she knows he is lying. As he finally tells her, she turns and leaves, heartbroken. He tries to get her to stay, but she feels like just running away from the world. She feels they might/will "lose forever", as in their dreams of being together forever. They stay together but he feels that she is going to give up and "when you try, don't try to say you wont", meaning she's "going to try to say she wont try". Then she begins to cry when with him, having all the hurt build up inside of her. He describes it as "Try to crawl into my head", because each time she cries it shows her feelings and he wishes he could do something to change the past, but it is impossible. Again he tries to describe his feelings to her in the chorus, telling her that he will never do anything like that again, and that she is "the one" for him.

    General CommentI think at the end, when he finishes the "you'll never be alone again"... and then the girl's voice echoes "alone again"... I think she actually meant that she was alone again.

    The song is beautiful, but I can't help but feel that is has a sad ending.

    Amazing lyrics nonetheless... even though the line "murder son she's painful" just throws me off... now the song is so much more enjoyable when I haven't defined my own meaning to it.

    General CommentThis is a great song. Good beat, good rhythm to it. Everytime the chick sings though, she reminds me of a mix between the singer of The Cranberries and Garbage. Not sure if I like that.
