"One (U2 Cover)" as written by and Carole King....
Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you
Now you got someone to blame

You say
One love
One life
When it's one need
In the night
It's one love
We get to share it
It leaves you baby
If you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love,
And you want me to go without.

Well it's too late
Tonight
To drag the past out
Into the light
We're one,
But we're not the same
Well we'll carry each other
Carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your head?

Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got
We're one
But we're not the same
Well we hurt each other
and we do it again

You say
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter
And then you make me crawl
But I can't be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love
One blood
One life
You got to do what you should

One life
With each other
Sisters
And brothers

One life
But we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other

One
One

    General CommentThis is probably one of my favorite songs by Shinedown, even though it is a cover. The lyrics are so powerful and amazing it brings tears to my eyes.
