"The One" as written by and Jermaine/cox Dupri....
(I) always that I was the cool kid class-clown
Thats until you called me last year's loudmouth
Now I'm full of these modern day self-doubts
Got me feeling hopeless and left out

I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't argue
With the evidence I'm insecure
I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't argue
With the fact I want to be adored

I want to be the one
Everybody wants
I want to be more than just another smalltown-hero
Don't wanna

Always thought I was your number one regret
Just another common glory day reject
Go ahead reach for another cigarette
Cause you're graveyard bound in the rusted-out town

I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't argue
With the evidence I'm insecure
I can't eat
I can't sleep
I can't argue
With the fact I want to be adored

I want to be the one
Everybody wants
I want to be more that just another smalltown-hero
Don't wanna

[solo]

I want to be the one
Everybody wants
I want to be more than just another smalltown-hero
Don't wanna

    General CommentIt might be about his highschool years, I can't tell for sure, but i'm guessing something like that, when he was a teenager and wanted to be something more then just an ordinary american or something :)
