"One" as written by Bekka Bramlett, Annie Leslie Roboff and Billy Burnette....
I try with all my might but still don't understand
Why we ever let it get so out of hand
My arms are reaching out and holding on tight
To what has always felt so right

[Chorus]
One is breaking into two
And my heart is turning blue
And you still don't get it do you
I thought we had all the love
To go it for the long run
So before the damage is done
Let's start back over at one

Lights out when every evening used to get so hot, now
We got so damned distracted we forgot how
To lock the world away and just get lost in
Where you end and where I begin
Love is strong but it's so easy to divide
So boy let's think about how much is on the line

[Chorus]

    General CommentI cant believe someone up until me, hasnt commented on such a well written song. It was written by 2 of her backup singers, for her. They did a great job. The guitar riff..is full of pain, and soul..and so well played.
    I love this song, and latley, it has been up there on my IPOD playlist. I sing it daily, hum it...and have to say..for a woman who sings alto..my pitch in it is pretty darn good.
    I believe this song is, a last cry out in the relationship...before the couple finally seperates into 2..and once more merging into their 1. How life, can take a toll on their relationship..as it always does..and the couple forgets..what they did. Once...shut out the world, and focus on only them..and them alone.Its gritty, stong, and full of feeling..with the overall hope, that one of the 2 people, will decide to walk back to the other...and form 1 once more. Faith sings it perfectly..as she does with all her tracks.
