I'm Not The Only One

Album: In the Lonely Hour (2014)
Charted: 3 5
  • A new disease in my town called Idiotic
    Every pretty lady in my city got it, point blank
    Periodically empty seats, dine at Ciprianis
    Like Beyoncé, they're getting by or they get embodied
    So Sasha Fierce, a whole lot of tears
    Rolling down her cheeks, crying till she's sound asleep (sleep)
    Preach (preach), pray (pray) that today is not a lonely one
    You gotta know you not the only one

    You and me, we made a vow
    For better or for worse
    I can't believe you let me down
    But the proof is in the way it hurts
    For months on end I've had my doubts
    Denying every tear
    I wish this would be over now
    But I know that I still need you here

    You say I'm crazy
    'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
    But when you call me baby
    I know I'm not the only one

    You've been so unavailable
    Now sadly I know why
    Your heart is unobtainable
    Even though God knows you have mine

    You say I'm crazy
    'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
    But when you call me baby
    I know I'm not the only one

    We all guilty of the same crime if you ask me
    I might've had a couple women at the same time
    She can't handle the pressure, Jack Daniels for breakfast
    A cap of valium mixed with antidepressants, precious
    My momma said that we need love
    Till I found out life's a bitch with no prenup, you're on your own
    Divorces or court splits, decisions and choices
    The Porsche or the fortress? Ignore it or forfeit

    You say I'm crazy
    'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
    But when you call me baby
    I know I'm not the only one

    I know I'm not the only one
    I know I'm not the only one
    And I know, and I know, and I know, and I know, and I know, and I don't know
    I know I'm not the only one Writer/s: RAKIM MAYERS, SAM SMITH, JAMES NAPIER

  • Stephen from MelbourneThe wife seemingly forgives the husband and takes it out on his stuff instead and drowning her sorrows in alcohol. But that's an unhealthy compromise. She needs to confront him about his infidelity first before true forgiveness and reconciliation can occur. The husband on the other hand seems to know that she knows and yet exploits her forgiveness. Truly heartless.
