"Why Am I the One" as written by and Nathaniel Joseph/dost Ruess....
I got enough on my mind
That when she pulls me by the hair
She hasn't much to hold onto
She keeping count on her hand
One, two, three days that I've been sleeping on my side

I finished kissing my death
So now I head back up the steps
Thinking about where I've been
I mean the sun was never like this
So I wanna feel with the seasons
I guess it makes sense 'cause my life's become as vapid as
A night out in Los Angeles
And I just wanna stay in bed

I hold you like I used to
You know that I am home
So darling if you love me
Would you let me know?

Or go on, go on, go on
If you were thinking that the worst is yet to come
Why am I the one always packing up my stuff?

For once, for once, for once
I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?

She got enough on her mind
That she feel no sorrow
I let my fate fill the air
So now she rollin' down the window
Never been one to hold on
But I need a last breath, so I ask if she remembers when
She used to come and visit me
We were fools to think that nothing could go wrong

Go on, go on, go on
If you were thinking that the worst is yet to come
Why am I the one always packing up my stuff?

For once, for once, for once
I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
Why am I the one always packing all my stuff?
I think I kinda like it but I might of had too much

I'll move back down
To this western town
When they find me out, make no mistake about it

I'll move back down
To this western town
When they find me out, make no mistake about it

I'll move back down (Go on, go on, go on, if you were thinkin' that the worst is yet to come)
To this western town
Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff

Go on, go on, go on, if you were thinkin that the worst is yet to come
Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff?

For once, for once, for once, I get the feeling that I'm right where I belong
Why am I the one always packin' up my stuff?

I think I kinda like it, but I might of had too much
I'll move back down

    General Commenti find it funny that "I Wanna Be The One" is on their first album and "Why Am I The One" is on their second.

    General CommentAlso, "it's always never like this" should be "the sun was never like this". It's probably a reference to a song by The Format, where Nate refers to California as "the sun". He's comparing his life now to his life when he lived there.

    This song is beautiful. I love it when the strings come in - pure genius.

    General CommentThanks to some past relationships, I can relate to this one somewhat. I've 'packed up' from several failed relationships. You move on, but being able to completely put yourself out there to another person becomes a leap of faith in a way. Finding the balance between making a real connection with someone and self-preservation is an art form. You start to feel like you're 'right where you belong', but you're still afraid of getting hurt at the same time.
