"One Thing" as written by and Alex Kristian Scally Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand....
One thing yea about you
You always yea you always know
What's happening
Perfect in the morning
And you ruin it in the evening

Remarkable
When a likeness comes
You're lucky just to meet
Come down the hill
And up the stairs
She never really sleeps

Closer now in the mirror
Your reflection, my reflection
Growing nearer
Pressure oh the pressure
In confession

Hallelujah

Remarkable
When a likeness comes
You're always out of reach
The faces in the secondhand
A little fuck off kiss

Remarkable
That you're lucky just to meet
Come down the hill
'Cause she never really sleeps

    My InterpretationThe two people were lucky just to meet each other, however, perpetual bad timing prevents the them from being together long enough to establish a relationship before they have to part. They keep their distance, emotionally and physically for fear of getting hurt. Though, the distance only increases their longing for each other, and adds more pressure to confess their feelings.

    'Cause she never really sleeps' She doesn't give up hope and hasn't forgotten how special it was to meet someone with a remarkable likeness, she believes that things will work out in the end, but waits for him to "come down the hill."

    It's something that only happens once or twice in a lifetime. When I think of this song, I always think about the song Real Love - and love that couldn't be realized because of distance, fear of rejection and bad timing.
