"The Only One" as written by Brian Yale, Robert Kelly Thomas, John Joseph Stanley and John Goff....
I don't know what we're fighting about
When everyone can see that I'm not crazy
I only wanted to be the only one

A chance to be forgiven
A chance to be forsaken
Did I ever by chance cross your mind?
I only wanted a chance to see you shine
I only wanted a chance to see you shine

I don't have no worries
No and I don't need no answers
There's just enough to make it day by day
There's just enough to make you fade away

I don't know what we're fighting about
Everyone can see that I'm not crazy
I only wanted to be the only one
I only wanted to be the only one

I don't need forgiveness
I can't be forsaken
I'm only here to take back what is mine
I can't believe the dullness of your shine

Just enough has been taken away
To make me believe in it all and I pray
And I've only been on at the start to begin
Just enough that there seems to be no end
I only wanted to touch your face again
I only wanted to see your face again

I don't know what we're fighting about
Everyone can see that I'm not crazy
I only wanted to see the only one
I only wanted to be the only one

    General Comment*Happy Sigh*
    It's beautiful.
    And I'm the first to comment! Whoop!
    I think it's about him being paranoid that she might be cheating on him, or that she may not care about him as much as she used to.
    She's annoyed because he doesn't trust her.
    So he's trying to justify his reasons- "I only wanted..." trying to make himself sound more innocent.

    Love the song.
    Especially the part where the music gets heavier and more up-beat...
    Dude... I can totally relate. Paranoia is a bitch!
