One and Only

  • You've been on my mind
    I grow fonder every day
    Lose myself in time
    Just thinking of your face
    God only knows why it's taken me
    So long to let my doubts go
    You're the only one that I wanted

    I don't know why I'm scared
    'Cause I've been here before
    With every feeling every word
    I've imagined it all
    You'll never know if you never try
    To forget your past and simply be mine

    I dare you to let me be your your one and only
    I promise I'm worthy
    To hold in your arms
    So come on and give me the chance
    To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
    Until the end starts

    If I've been on your mind
    Do you hang on every word I say
    Lose yourself in time
    At the mention of my name
    Will I ever know how it feels to hold you close
    And have you tell me
    Whichever road I choose you'll go?

    I don't know why I'm scared
    'Cause I've been here before
    With every feeling and every word
    I've imagined it all
    You'll never know if you never try
    To forget your past and simply be mine

    I dare you to let me be your, your one and only
    I promise I'm worthy
    To hold in your arms
    So come on and give me the chance
    To prove I am the one who can walk that mile
    Until the end starts

    I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
    I know it ain't easy giving up your heart
    Nobody's perfect (I know it ain't easy giving up your heart)
    Nobody's perfect (I know it ain't easy giving up your heart) trust me I've learned it
    (I know it ain't easy giving up your heart)
    (I know it ain't easy giving up your heart)
    Nobody's perfect (I know it ain't easy giving up your heart)

    So I dare you to let me be your your one and only
    I promise I'm worthy
    To hold in your arms
    So come on and give me the chance
    To prove that I am the one who can walk that mile
    Until the end starts

    Come on and give me the chance
    To prove that I am the one who can walk that mile
    Until the end starts

  • Shaun from Narita, JapanSince the beginning of her North American Tour in 2011, during her live shows she changes the lyrics from "You're the only one that want" to "You're the only one that I wanted."
  • Ny from Canberra, AustraliaI love this song, it has a great bluesy type sound. Funny what Adele told the sun, as it has always made me think of someone i have always loved but have been too scared to just go for it - these words are what i wish i could say to him....
