The Only Thing

  • La la la la la la la listen
    La la la la la la listen to me
    I'm reminiscing, reminiscing
    And I'm missing how it used to be
    They say when it hits you
    You'll know that it's true
    You'll know 'cause you feel it
    Ooh-ooh

    When I held you it was the only thing
    Only thing
    And all I knew was you were everything
    Everything

    You are the record in the record shop
    Nobody wants to buy
    You are the metaphor, the metaphor
    The meta for the other guy
    You call when you need it
    You're nobody's fool
    You take it, I leave it
    Ooh-ooh

    When I held you, it was the only thing
    Only thing
    And all I knew was you were everything
    Everything

    Don't lend me your heart
    You'll only tear it apart
    Apart
    Apart
    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la
    La la la la la la la la la

    When I held you, it was the only thing
    Only thing
    And all I knew was you were everything
    Everything
    When I held you, it was the only thing
    Only thing
    So why am I blue? Writer/s: Francis Healy
