"Be The One" as written by Isaac Slade, Joseph King, Ben Wysocki and David Welsh....
They're two lovers in the night
Waiting on the sun to rise
Passing ships into the night
Under different skies

But you just whisper what you said
One last time
I could have sworn I heard you say
That you are mine

Faded flowers in your hand
The best that I could do
It's the only way I've had
Of reaching you

I never saw it like you did
Didn't know that it was there
You don't see it in your hand
It´s in the air

Be the one and only, wait for me
Will you be the only one
Will you be, be the one and only
Wait for me, will you be the only one

What if I knew how to yell
What would I pray
What if I knew how to tell
What would I say

I will be the only one
If you say you'll never go
I'll be screaming out your name
From the back row

Be the one and only, wait for me
Will you be the only one
Will you be, be the one and only
Wait for me, let me be your only one

Be the one, be the one and only
Wait for me, let me be your only one
Will you be, be the one and only
Wait for me, let me be your only one

    My InterpretationWonderful and sincere song from The Fray yet again. Isaac and Co. never cease to amaze me with their ability to write songs. It's said that the melody for this song was created in less than 24 hours by the band members!

    These lyrics are incorrect though...you have "I'll be screaming your name, FROM THE BACK OF OHH."

    It should be, "I'll be screaming your name, FROM THE BACK ROW."

    Lyric CorrectionAlso:
    You don't see it in your hand
    Until the end

    Should be:
    You don't see it in your hand
    It's in the air

    General CommentI also heard it was created in less than 24 hours. As some part of a magazine's Valentine's Day challenge or something, right?

    I agree with the lyrics corrections posted, but I'm guessing the moderator hasn't seen or doesn't care.

    To me, this song is two people who were in a relationship and one person didn't quite see it as the solid, tangible thing he was after so he left for selfish reasons, then realized his mistake and is doing everything he can to communicate that he was an idiot. He wants his partner to wait for him to come back from the journey he started.

    General CommentTheres been a lot of speculation on the lyrics posted above but these ARE THE CORRECT LYRICS. A lot of people say its "I'll be screaming out your name from the back row" but come one. Does that really make sense? From the back row of what? It most definitely is "I'll be screaming out your name from th back of ooohhh". By that he means that after I say "ooohhh" I will say your name. So if the name of the girl he is talking about is Danielle, it would go "ooohhh Danielle!!!" Do you understand? Im 13 and even i could figure that out. THINK PEOPLE!!!

    Lyric CorrectionBut you just whisper what you said
    One last time
    This is wrong.

    WOULD you just whisper what you said
    One last time
    This is correct.
