"Only You" as written by James Eliot and Ellie Goulding....
Only you can be the aching in my heart
My enemy, the only animal I couldn't fight
You hold me in the dark when storms arrive, only you

Only you can see the emptiness I feel
When you're with me
When everything you say I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees

When everything you say I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees

Only you can be the aching in my heart
My enemy, the only animal I couldn't fight
You hold me in the dark when storms arrive
Only you
Only you
Only you
Only you can see the emptiness I feel
When you're with me
When everything you say I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees

When everything you say I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees
Baby I'm on my knees, only you

Only you can be the aching in my heart
My enemy, the only animal I couldn't fight
You hold me in the dark when storms arrive, only you

Only you

Only you can be the aching in my heart
My enemy, the only animal I couldn't fight
You hold me in the dark when storms arrive, only you

    My InterpretationVery simple.

    He's the only person that can make her feel helpless, in pain, the "only animal I couldn't fight" because she is so in love with him, he has complete control over her.

    "I'm on my knees" is in no way dirty, it's him hurting her and having so much effect on her that she's forced to fall to her knees from the impact of him.

    MemoryThis is about a girl who likes this guy and she holds dear to. Even though that is, he knows she likes him yet he doesn't say anything about it. Every little word he says to her she goes on her knees begging him for more words.

    My OpinionAm I the only one who is reminded of the Delirium series? The "my enemy" reminds me of Alex and Lena. How once, they were enemies, but chose to overlook that and Lena ended up joining Alex and all the other uncureds?
