All alone, you prefer it that way
Quiet I know, heading to stay
The errant charm soon comes out now
nowhere to hide and you'll never be the only one.

What once felt right, twice comes forward
The rarest sight now all eyes glued onward
time wants to share what it seems you're only
the one to care and you'll never be the only one

don't let their smiles bring you down
faint praise is all they have found
for you now

The camera's glare captures it all
but the blank of your stare
and more than blew all
you miss the days when no one would call
here they come and you'll never be the only one
oh here they come you'll never be the only one

    My InterpretationTo me, this song is about someone who is forced into the spotlight (maybe even a has-been) and how their relationships will never be the same. The fame and constant scrutiny will always interfere with meaningful relationships.

    You could also read it is as a damaged relationship, where one person cares more about the other and knows they will never be said s.o.'s only one.
