"Down to One" as written by and Melissa Etheridge....
What went right
What went wrong
Doesn't really matter much
When it's gone

Was it too hard to try
Was it too hard to lie
Did you just grow tired of hello and goodbye
Was it the naked truth that made you run
Where do I go now
That I'm down to one

Sooner or later
We all end up walking alone
I'm down to one

My heart is a traitor
It led me down this road
Now it's done
I'm down to one

I want to know where I failed
I want to know where I sinned
Cause I don't want to ever feel this way again
Was the wanting too deep
Did it block your sun
Where do I go now
That I'm down to one

I guess sooner or later
We all end up walking alone
I'm down to one

My heart is a traitor
It led me down this road
Now it's done
I'm down to one

What am I supposed to think
What am I gonna say
What did I ever know
About this love anyway

Down to one

My heart is a traitor
It led me down this road
And I'm down to one

I guess sooner or later
We all end up walking alone
I'm down to one
My heart is a traitor
And now it's done
Down to one
Oneâ?¦
Oneâ?¦
I'm down to oneâ?¦

    Song MeaningI think that the meaning is pretty clear she's trying to figure out what went wrong in her relationship with her girlfriend but also what she could have done to make her girlfriend try harder to make it work also and almost blaming herself trying to figure out where she failed knowing that she herself let her heart lead her down that road but also realizing that everyone at some point in their lives has to "walk alone".
