Only One

Album: No Name Face (2000)

Songfacts®:

  • Lead singer Jason Wade: "I wrote "Only One" right after someone in my life did something I felt was totally wrong. It was a really tough time for me. I have these trails in my life, like my dad leaving and my not being with him anymore, and then this man, who I really looked up to, failing. "Only One" is about how sometimes people are just not there for you and you have to look somewhere else for guidance." >>

  • Silvia from Guatemala City, OtherI guess this song tells how you might feel when someone betrays you, but the ONLY ONE is God, 'cause He's the Only One that will never fail and will never betray you 'cause He never changes faces, He's the only one standing when everything goes down!!!
