"Be The One" as written by Jack Penate, Paul Epworth and Armand Van Helden....
be the one (x10)

the stage was set for me to play
but i decided on the day that i did not believe the page
i walked away because of you
just like tiresias i knew that me and you were fated too

we asked the church to save our souls
they we were too early, had to join the fold
i lay and watch you sleep beneath the citrus sky
pretending not to see you through my wanting eyes

i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
be the one be the one
i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you should (be the one)
be the one be the one

my past was painted on a wall
but with a look you made a fool
i placed your flag into a ball
i'll follow you for any cause
i'll fight for you in any wars
and all to say that i am yours

we asked the church to save our souls
they we were too early, had to join the fold
i lay and watch you sleep beneath the citrus sky
pretending not to see you through my wanting eyes

i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you would (be the one)
be the one be the one
i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
be the one be the one

did we really? did we really fall in love?
(be the one be the one)
did we really? did we really fall in love?
(be the one be the one)

i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you would (be the one)
be the one be the one
i knew you should (be the one)
i knew you could (be the one)
i knew you should (be the one)
be the one be the one
(be the one, be the one......)
did we really? did we really fall in love?
(be the one be the one)
did we really? did we really fall in love?
(be the one be the one)..........*fade*

    General Commenti REALLY adore this song.

    & i'm pretty sure i got the meaning (but naturally i could be wrong)
    i think its about a relationship that was going really great but maybe some doubts were arising... hence why he's questioning the legitimacy of their love... by asking "did we really fall in love"

    that it would be great if she was "the one" but there's the possibility that they are all wrong.

    it's that or she dumped him & he's sort of upset that she should have been the one but ... then he wonders if he is right...

    basic interpretation but either way i think it's a GREAT song & sort of reminds me of 500 days of summer ... though it doesnt sound like any of the songs in the movie at allll... but it reminds of the jist of the story.
