"The Only One" as written by Linval Thompson, Lowell Dunbar, Donald Dennis and Miguel Orlando Collins....
Oh I love, Oh I love, Oh I love
What you do to my head
When you pull me upstairs
And you push me to bed.
I love what you do to my head.
It's a mess out there!

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my heart
When you push me back down
And then pull me apart.
I love what you do to my heart.
It's the best, oh yeah!

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my lips
When you suck me inside
And you blow me a kiss.
I love what you do to my lips
It's so sweet in there.

Oh I love, love, love, love
What you do to my hips
When you blow me outside
And then suck me like this.
I love what you do to my hips
It's the beat oh yeah!

You're the only one I cry for
The only one I try to please.
You're the only one I sigh for
The only one I die to squeeze.
And it gets better everyday, I play
With you it's such a scream.
Yeah it gets better everyday, I say
With you it's so extreme.
Yeah it gets wetter everyday, I stay
With you it's like a dream.

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to my skin.
Please slip me on
And slide me in.
I love what you do to my skin
It's a ? oh yeah.

Oh I love, love, love, love
What you do to my bones
When you slide me up
And take me home.
I love what you do to my bones
It's the crush oh yeah.

You're the only one I cry for
The only one I try to please.
You're the only one I sigh for
The only one I die to squeeze.

And it gets hazier anyway, I sway
With you it's such a scream
Yeah it gets mazier every play, I say
With you it's so extreme.
Yeah it gets crazier everyday, I stay
With you it's like a dream.

Oh I love, oh I love, oh I love
What you do to me.

    General Commentman the more i listen to his recent songs, the more he freaks me out! he sounds like a wild beast. I dont' picture RS being that way though. he seems so honest about his love for his wife. His recent songs freak me out though. he;s on about someone innocent he wants to shock or fuck then he's on about his sexual ways| scarrry!!!

    General Commentlaurelinwyntre, you lyrics are way off. I can't tell all the words, but he definately sing

    "when you blow me outside,
    and then suck me like this"

    You can tell because he uses "suck" and "blow" in the previous verse alternately. It plays into the structure of the song. And Robert's a pervert ;)

    General CommentWhile I like the darker songs best, I like their happy poppy songs too, This is a perfect pop song, definitely better than anything on their last album IMO. Along with NY Trip it sounds like The Cure got their groove back.

    The live versions were played before the single and the words are quite different with different verses swapped round...

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. A pretty pervy song, but I really love it. I fell in love with it right away actually. I just spent hours on end listening to this on repeat. I was just so thrilled they'd put out something new. And yeah, me and my friend have been listening to this song all summer and it's just kicks serious ass, and it just... yeah I dunno
    I just love it xD

    General CommentRobert will be turning 50 this year, which means he is months away from being officially declared an OOOLD GUY.
    And EVERYBODY knows it's gross for those Dirty, Old Men to sing about their sex lives. So poor Robert has to get it all out before these lyrics become SOCIALLY UNACCEPTABLE. :X

    General Commentoh i love this song.
    the cure has 2 main auras:
    - the dark and existencialist
    and
    - the dreamy lollipop

    and they can perform both vibes beautifully. this song reminds me of in between days, and lovecats, and just like heaven, the caterpillar... those kinds of songs you can dance and sing and cry to.
    it IS ver the cure-ish
    that's the versatility of the cure.

    General CommentI've been a Cure fan since 1992.... I love their music.... but I was disappointed with their last album. The music was tote rubbish for me. Since around 2004, Robert Smith started looking fugly! He used to be shy and kind of cute, but now looks like he's up to himself.
