"The One" as written by Shaun D. Glass, Timothy William King, Ryan S. Mccombs, Thomas M. Schofield and Adam Victor Zadel....
How long have I been standing here my friend
Has it been so long
I've been spreading myself so thin
And I've been so wrong

I want to be the one you run to
And I want to be your only one
I want to be the one you turn to
And I want to be the one

Why did all the good times turn to sin
And has it been so long
I've been standing here in my footprints
And I am so wrong

You shine on me all the good times with you
Where all the smiles belong
You trust in me to save the last tear for you
Cause I've been so wrong

Hey now its been so long
Hey hey won't you believe in me
Hey now I've come so far
How now won't you believe in me

My aberrance
My time
In my life
I can't be what you see in me
I can't be

    General CommentIMO this song is about loving someone, and wanting them all to yourself. Then coming to the realization that they don’t share the same feelings, and you have to let them go.

    General CommentI think that it's saying to someone that they can come to you when they have problems. That's what i think this line means:
    I wanna be the one you turn to

    General Commentthe singer wants his lover all for himself "i want to be the only one you run to"

    but he realizes that hes not what she wants "i cant be what you see in me" plus the possibility in anangle's comment about the lover not feeling the same way about wanting him to be the only person she runs to.

    lol hi david
