The first time that I met you I knew
One day I would know you even better
When people tried to tell me, "Do not fall for him"
I told myself, "Don't let them get to you"

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love to love

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one

The first thing that you said to me was
"Jamie I love you, Jamie I love you, Jamie, Jamie, I love you"
And I've never been one to believe in love at first sight
But now I know it exists

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love to love

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one

We went for walks through leaves in parks
Your winter sleeve was pulled over my hand
Don't you know I thought of you when on St. Mark's
I saw some other man collecting cans

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love to love

You are the only one I love
You are the only one I love
You are the only one

    General CommentThis has to be an after break-up song. The whole album is about the relationship or the fall of the relationship. It would only make sense to make this cd turned book with this beautiful song. The childrens voices add not only to the sound but the feeling of her truely having loving. No one can love like children love.

    The part i don't understand in "don't u know i though of u when on st. marks i saw some other man collecitng...can?"

    Is she seeing him everywhere now?

    General CommentThe line you don't get means she's thinking about him everytime being in a park, no matter what happens or is around her.

    General Commentthe chant is:

    Can you feel the landslide outside? Can you feel the love inside?

    she told me so.

    + this song I think is generally about the true, everlasting, lingering, always-reminiscent feeling of love someone feels for another.
