I really wasn't kidding
about going to the city for the weekend.
We were testing the waters
when we pulled each other into the deep end.

But there is only one of you,
and I'll accept no substitute.
Nothing else will do, only you.

I see evidence of you and him,
that's scattered all around your room.
I wonder if there's an inch of space
in this holy place.

Artists can be such a bore,
but you deserve so much more.
When they're practicing their chords,
attempting to rock you,
but you just wanted someone to talk to.
You were just looking for someone to talk to.

That's why I'm thinking about taking a walk outside.
I'll close my eyes, and make my love appear, out of thin air.
Or maybe I'll turn a corner and go spinning,
and you'll be standing there,
but you're unaware of how much I care.
You don't know how much I care for you.

There are other dreamers in this world,
but I've got a feeling you're my kind of girl.
So, I am not pretending anymore.
Who in the world would it be for?

There is only one of you,
and I'll accept no substitute.
Nothing else will do, only you, only you..

    General Commenti adore this song. i think it's about a couple falling fast for each other, then breaking up ("i see evidence of you and him"...etc.). he wants her back, clearly. ("there is only one of you, and i'll accept no substitute") it's a sweet song, really, and ridiculously catchy.
