"One and Only" as written by and Steven/robertson Page....
Hey, pass the ball
Why do you run it in circles?
Waves crash the wall
Soon enough all your hard work will fail

Wait, hold the phone
I don't know if I can take this
Leave me alone
I don't know if I can make this work

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow; I'm one and only

I need to think
'Cause now I've got everyone wondering
Pass me a drink
Last, but not least, and my virtue's gone

Lend me a hand
I think I could walk if you help me
Please understand
If I could talk, I would tell you why

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow, I'm one and only

Only one
All or none
My heart's done
Weighs a ton

Hold me a while
Tell me you'll never be leaving
I'll walk the mile
Seeing but not quite believing you

See, I know I'm lost and lonely
Please go slow, I'm one and only
See, I know I'm lost and lonely (See, I know I'm lost and lonely)
Please go slow, I'm one and only (Please go slow, I'm one and only)

    General CommentThe title says it all in this one.

    One and Only

    Spoken from someone in an intensely vulnerable state. One and only, feeling overwhelmed and outnumbered and confused and so very needy.

    The beat of the song lends itself to a lullabye of sorts. Very rhythmic and soothing, Lending itself also to an interpretation of the speaker as indeed "only one". A little boy, a baby of sorts. Unable to walk without a hand to hold, unable to talk to explain why he's like this.

    I really love how the beat of the song echoes the "waves crashing" in the first verse.
