The One

Album: Orange County Soundtrack (2001)
  • Everyone makes one mistake
    One more time for old times sake
    One more time before the feeling fades

    One that's born of memories
    One more bruise you gave to me
    One more test just how much can I take

    Because you're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like shit

    Something never meant to be
    Everything you meant to me
    Wake me when this punishment is done

    Those who try and get away
    From the one who gets away
    Someone's always someone else's one

    Because you're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like shit
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like shit

    Until the end of time
    In another life
    Until the day I die
    Save it up for one more try
    Save it for the last goodbye
    We go on and get off
    And get on and get off

    Because you're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like shit
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like shit

    Because you're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like this
    You're not the one but you're the only one
    Who can make me feel like

  • Taylor from Indianapolis, InThis is a great song, I don't know why but I can just relate to it...
  • Clay from Fredericksburg, VaI like the song. I hated the video.
    I think this was the first song they released with Chris in the band (he'd been on tour with them previously) so I thought it was a harbinger of good things to come.
  • Dave from Essex, Englandapart from come back and all my life, this is one of my all time favourite songs
  • Tya from New South Wales, United Statesi luv this song cos it relates to everything in my life
    and i dunno nething he makes i luv..
  • Steph from London, EnglandYeah, this is probably the worst Foo Fighters song (and it must be if I will say that, because they are my all time favourite band..) The video was still top quality though. I think it may have been one of those favour for a friend things as Jack Black was in the movie Orange County and they're mates... Meh!
  • Richard from St. Louis, MoI could have sworn Ive seen somewhere that Dave said something like:
    before playing times like these he said it was one of the best songsd hed ever written. Then after that they played the one, where he said its one of the worst songs hed ever written.
  • Becky from Berkshire, Englandmy least favourite foo fighters song I'm afraid, it was inbetween albums and have proved themselves to be still on form with "one by one". It had a cute video though, Chris made a great dancer.
