"One Minute" as written by Kelly Brianne Clarkson, Chantal Kreviazuk, Michael Maida, Kara Elizabeth Dioguardi and Unknown Writer....
You're going crazy
Running on empty
You can't make up your mind
You try to hide it
But you had to say it
Restless all this time
So completely drained from everything that's in your life
It's so wrong but you had to scream every thought you kept inside

One minute you laugh
The next minute you're slowly sinking into something black
I get the feeling that lately nothing ever really lasts
I keep trying to get up but I keep falling back
And you love
And you hate
And you wait
'Cause one minute goes fast

You just can't escape it
You're losing patience
You wonder what went wrong
Everything changes
Happy then jaded
Always a different song
Playin' in your head just when you think you got it down
Out of nowhere you realize it's different music playing now

One minute you laugh
The next minute you're slowly sinking into something black
I get the feeling that lately nothing ever really lasts
I keep trying to get up but I keep falling back
And you love
And you hate
And you wait
'Cause one minute goes fast

One minute goes fast
One minute goes fast

One minute you laugh
The next minute you're slowly sinking into something black
I get the feeling that lately nothing ever really lasts
I keep trying to get up but I keep falling back
And you love
And you hate
And you wait
'Cause one minute goes
One minute goes
One minute goes fast

    General CommentIt's a good one to dance to.
    Chantal Kreviazuk co-wrote this song. The "ah-ah-aaah"s at the 2 minute mark are very much her musical style, and the catchiest part of the song.

    General CommentI reckon this line says wat the song is about :
    I keep trying to get up
    but I keep falling back
    in your love, in your hate, and you wait.
    Like, she keeps falling in love with a guy? And she knows she shouldnt? I'm not really sure but yeah. Could be :P

    General CommentThe lyrics are actually:
    "And you love,
    And you hate,
    And you wait,
    'Cause one minute goes fast".

    The way I've always interpreted this is as a song about herself, kind of to herself. It could be about another person, but it could be about yourself. Anyone else interpret it that way, or am I just crazy?

    General Comment^^yeah, the correct lyrics are the ones from PerfectlyWrecked

    This isn't my favorite song on the album, but Kelly & Co. did a wonderfully good job writing it, as well as all the songs on My December.
    It is catchy.

    I got the impression that she was singing about this guy who is confusing her. Like, one minute he's loving her, and all happy, but then the next minute he's mad and depressed. She's wondering if it's worth it, because "one minute goes fast".
    The relationship that they are in is taking a toll on the guy.

    Just my thoughts.

    General Commenti agree with PerfectlyWrecked, i think this song's about kelly herself.. she's talking about how things are consfusing her and she's just feeling that time's going in a fast way and everything is changing all the time...even between a minute and another she changes from happy to sad ..
    and that's how i feel these days...

    General CommentI love this song. I never listened to the lyrics before, I just loved to dance to the beat. But now that I look at it, I realize I can relate so well.

    I think she's talking about confusing relationship. She doesn't know how she feels and feelings just get so bottled up that she had to 'scream at the thought you kept inside'. She's happy, and then sad, and feels confused about the whole thing. Nothing lasts long. And like PerfectlyWrecked said, she's wondering if he's worth it because "one minute goes fast."
