"One" as written by and Maurice/bailey White....
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.
One love, we get to share 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.
We get to 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, then we do it again.

You say love is a temple, love a higher law
Love is a temple, love the higher law.
You ask me to enter, but then you make me crawl
And 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, brothers.
One life, but we're not the same.
We get to carry each other, carry each other.
One, one.

    General CommentIs 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

    One love
    We get to share 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
    We get to
    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
    Will we
    Hurt each other
    Then we do it again

    You say
    Love is a temple
    Love a higher law
    Love is a temple
    Love the higher law

    You ask me to enter
    But then you make me crawl
    And 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
    Brothers

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

    One... life

    One
