"Only One Too" as written by and John/kilcher Shanks....
I am talking but you can't quite hear what I say
I come closer
but you push me away
I should leave
but I don't have the strength
I can't think

Please can't you see that I am down on my knees
My heart's in you hand
and you squeeze
I want the whole thing
but you give me a part
it's time to start
so I push and you pull
and I don't know which way to go

[Chorus]
Stop Me, Stop me from falling
cause I can see
then I'll love you only
when I am the only one, too

I just can't make you understand
I want your heart but you hold up your hand
you say space is what you need
but you want me
to be true
to just you
while you get to do whatever you want to

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
You'll never stop
it's gotta change
you don't want a lover
you want a world of slaves
I can't resist falling into those arms
those boyish charms
you think I won't leave
yes you're good, but not so good I can't see

[Chorus]

    General CommentI love this song. However, it seems really pop for her. haha. That's okay! I love it! I love the chorus and how it is put together musically. I wonder if Ty inspired this...it doesn't seem to fit.

    General Commentthe perfect GET OVER HIM song. i love it. the bridge is perfect. u think i wont leave yes you're good but not so good i can't see. those lines helped me so much to get over this one guy. and yes, the song is poppy but i dont really care. all the better to dance around my room and sing it like an idiot (seriously try it sometime it makes u feel sooooo much better). anyways, i dont really think ty inspired this. but my mom thinks jewel was the "other woman" who fell in love and then now shes telling him she doesnt wanna be the "other woman" anymore.
