"Only You" as written by Allee Willis and Bruce Roberts....
I hear you calling out my name
All of the elements will fade
Never before has love looked safe
Never again will it look the same

But then we fall back now to this empty house
There the wars will rage

And if you leave me now in this empty house
Baby it's okay

Oh and it's only you yeah it's only you
It's only you and me
Oh and it's only you yeah it's only you
It's only you and me yeah

And I feel you crawling out my veins
Leaving the walls inside with flames
Burning the emptiness I've saved
Until only you remain

But then my lungs collapse and you pull me out
Forever I've been changed
Honey you can take me now 'till it all runs out
Baby it's okay

Oh but there's only you, yeah it's only you
It's only you I see
Girl if it's only you, yeah it's only you
It's only you and me yeah

Can you feel it now
I've weighed it all out
Here and now my world turns inside out
And I swear I
I hear you calling
I hear you calling out my name

Only you yeah it's only you
It's only you I see
Girl if it's only you, yeah it's only you
It's only you and me yeah
It's only you, yeah it's only you
It's only you and me

    General Comment"i hear you calling out my name
    all of the elements will fade
    never before has love looked safe
    never again will it look the same"

    this is basically saying that the person fell in love and will never be the same again.


    "but then we fall back now to this empty house
    there the wars will rage
    and if you leave me now in this empty house
    baby its okay
    oh and its only you yeah its only you
    its only you and me
    oh and its only you yeah its only you
    its only you and me yeah"

    he doesn't want her to leave him. it's just the two of them.

    "and i feel you crawling out my veins
    leaving the walls inside with flames
    burning the emptiness i've saved
    until lonely you remain
    but then my lungs collapse and you pull me out
    forever i've been changed
    honey you can take me now til it all runs out
    baby it's okay
    oh but theres only you yeah its only you
    its only you i see
    girl if its only you yeah its only you
    its only you and me yeah
    can you feel it now"

    he see's her in everything. all day long. he went through a rough time before, but then she came along. he's been changed for the better because of her.

    "can you feel it now
    ive weighed it all out
    here and now my world turns inside out
    and i swear i
    i hear you calling
    i hear you calling out my name"

    bottom line: he needs her. she's changed his world and now he wants to return the favor and help her.

    My InterpretationThis is by far my favourite song on cycles. Even though cartel are a band that probably wouldn’t have anything to do with drug use perhaps this song is from someone’s else’s perspective or he‘s comparing his love for someone to the addictive qualities of a drug.
    The first part is saying that all he can think about is the drug everything around him/her fade away when he’s under the influence.
    No one really sees how bad this persons addiction is, it’s hidden.
    He/she is also thinking, maybe I’ll be okay if I leave this drugs alone but is never able to keep away.
    This verse is full of references (self explanatory):
    and i feel you crawling out my veins (injecting)
    leaving the walls inside with flames
    burning the emptiness i've saved
    until lonely you remain
    but then my lungs collapse and you pull me out (lung collapse [pneumothorax] is often cause by drug use)
    forever i've been changed
    honey you can take me now til it all runs out
    ive weighed it all out
    here and now my world turns inside out (he/she went too far and did too much)
    It gives this feeling as though the person knows how bad his/her drug use is but still can’t seem to turn away from it.

    General CommentDid anybody else immediately think the beginning resembled Oasis' Wonderwall?
