"Be the One" as written by and White/de Martino....
You say it's not what you do,
It's what you're thinkin' of
Well I think it's just an excuse
It's what you put across

And I don't wanna be the one
Only overjoyed
Yeah I don't wanna be the one
Makin' all the noise
Yeah I don't wanna be the one

So make sure you're thinkin' it through
You've let me down again
Offer me somethin'
I know you really meant

And I don't wanna be the one
Only overjoyed
Yeah I don't wanna be the one
Makin' all the noise
Yeah I don't wanna be the one

Hey!

What you gonna offer now?

And I don't wanna be the one
Only overjoyed
Yeah I don't wanna be the one
Makin' all the noise
Yeah I don't wanna be the one

Hey!

What you gonna offer now?
What you gonna offer now?
What you gonna offer now?

This was not my idea
Don't you keep me waitin'
This was not my idea
Don't you keep me waitin'
This was not my idea
Don't you keep me waitin'

    General CommentI agree. I think it's about a girl who loves her boyfriend and realized that the feelings don't seem to be mutual. I think everyone can relate to that. I know I can.

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple where the girl is so happy she's with the guy and the guy is kinda like "whatever". And it seems as though the girl is confronting the guy about it.

    I love this song!

    General CommentI'm wondering why in the video Katie starts off waking up in a hospital bed and escaping from hospital.
    The song is quite sad, like as if she's only recently admitted to herself that he hasn't been taking much interest in things between them. She was besotted by love too much to notice his indifference.
