Back At One

Album: Back At One (1999)
Charted: 2
  • It's undeniable
    That we should be together
    It's unbelievable
    How I used to say
    That I'd fall never
    The basis is need to know
    If you don't know
    Just how I feel
    Then let me show you now
    That I'm for real
    If all things in time
    Time will reveal

    One
    You're like a dream come true
    Two
    Just want to be with you
    Three
    Girl, it's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me
    And four
    Repeat steps one through three
    Five
    Make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one

    It's so incredible
    The way things work themselves out
    And all emotional
    Once you know what it's all about, hey
    And undesirable
    For us to be apart
    I never would have made it very far
    'Cause you know you've got the keys to my heart

    One
    You're like a dream come true
    Two
    Just want to be with you
    Three
    Girl, it's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me
    And four
    Repeat steps one through three
    Five
    Make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one

    Say farewell to the dark of night
    I see the coming of the sun
    I feel like a little child
    Whose life has just begun
    You came and breathed new life
    Into this lonely heart of mine
    You threw out the lifeline
    Just in the nick of time

    One
    You're like a dream come true
    Two
    Just want to be with you
    Three
    Girl, it's plain to see
    That you're the only one for me
    And four
    Repeat steps one through three
    Five
    Make you fall in love with me
    If ever I believe my work is done
    Then I'll start back at one Writer/s: Brian Kelly Mcknight
