"Only Got One" as written by Guy Sigsworth and Imogen Jennifer Heap....
If this is a question is maybe a lie
If yes doesn't mean it does when lessen why
You are held in queue
Someone will be with you shortly
Say I'm wrong, you decide
I don't believe the words you sing sometimes
But then it's your life
Mmm
It's your life
But then it's your life
Mmm
It's your life
But you've only got one
You've only got one
But you've only got one

If I, just to spite you, placate your disgrace
Will song turn to silence
Will mask wear your face
Are you down to be open
Show me yours and I'll show you mine
Or are you down just to be down
I don't believe the words you sing sometimes
But then it's your life
Mmm
It's your life
But then it's your life
Mmm
It's your life
But you've only got one
It's your life
You've only got one
Mmm it's your life
But you've only got one
Life honey
You've only got one
Life honey
You've only got one
Life honey
Start today
Life honey
You start today
Life honey
But you've only got one
Life honey
But you've only got one
Life honey
You've only got one
Life honey
But you've only got one

You've only got one
But you've only got one

    General CommentI also agree that it is more than just an idea that life should be lived to it's fullest.
    I think this song is about how she has this certain outlook on life that is a very positive one at that and the one she loves can't seem to see their life in the same way. Its very frustrating when you are in a situation like this one when you have such a great outlook on your life and as much as you may want that person to see life in the same light..they won't.

    General CommentOkay, these are not the right lyrics.
    And it's really bothering me.
    Here:

    If this is a question,
    Is maybe a lie?
    If yes doesn't mean it,
    Does when lessen why?

    You are held in a queue,
    Someone will be with you shortly.
    Say I'm wrong
    You decide
    I don't believe the words you sing sometimes

    But then it's your life
    mmm, it's your life
    But then it's your life
    mmm, it's your life

    But, you've only got one
    You've only got one
    But, you've only got one

    If I just to spite you
    Placate your disgrace
    Will song turn to silence?
    Will mask wear your face?

    Are you down to be open
    Show me yours and I'll show you mine
    Or are you down just to be down?
    I don't believe the words you sing sometimes

    And so on..

    General Commentyup. those sound right to me

    think this song is pretty straight forward

    enjoy the way you live your life
    'cause you've only got on'
    sounds like she see's the way someone is living their life, and can't understand why they do the things they do.. cause they don't see them being happy.

    could be talking to herself as well

    General Commenti think it's saying indecision is okay.
    as long as you're enjoying the ride and the indecision is your choice..
    because it's your life and if you're doing what makes you happy, that's all there is to it.

    General CommentI think it goes a little bit deeper than just telling someone to live their life to the fullest. I think she's realizing that someone she is very close to has to make their own choices.

    It's just the hesitation in "BUT then, its your life". It's like relucatant acceptance of the fact that, though she cares, they don't live the same life.
