"You Are The One" as written by and Jay Hawkins....
No I won't surrender
At any cost
You're something so sweet and tender
From my heart

Yes I've done my evil
I've done my good
Just believe me honey
I won't let go of you

You are the one
And there's no regrets at all
You are the one
And there's no regrets at all

We've had our share of misfortune
We've had our blues
And God is not on our side
Yes it's true
We keep forgetting baby
The beauty of us two
There is no one who can take that away
From me and you

You are the one
And there's no regrets at all

You are the one
And there's no regrets at all

    General CommentTo me, this songs meaning is easy to figure out. He loves someone alot, but things just go wrong between the two of them, but that still doesn't change the fact that he loves her, and he wouldn't change it if he could.

    General CommentAmazing song, one of my favourites by HIM, but there's an error in my favourite part of the song, and I just can't let that be.

    We keep forgetting baby
    The others too
    There is no one who can take that away
    From me and you

    should read as
    We keep forgetting baby
    The beauty of us two
    There is no one who can take that away
    From me and you

    General CommentTo be honest i have never heard this HIM song i have only just got into them. But it sounds great!! Well, from what i've been reading anyway. The title is quite simple, and that is great! Simple things are sometimes the best!

    General CommentThis song means the world to me...this was the song that my first love gave to me...This is probably my favorite song of all time, although it makes me cry so when I hear it...Whoever has not heard this yet needs to...and I agree with him_fan_atic, that is so annoying how so many people get that part of the song wrong...everyone seems to...oh well...you still need to fix that by the way ^^''

    General CommentI think this is one of the best HIM songs. :) I think that Ville sings this line with a very big passion: You're something so sweet and tender
    From my heart
    It sounds so great.. :) When i get my acoustic guitar, I'm going to learn to play this song with it.
    I just love HIM! :) It's so great that they're from Finland. I'm from Finland too, and it's a big honor from our country to have such a great band in here, HIM. <3
