One and Only Lyrics
I grow fonder every day,
lose myself in time just thinking of your face
God only knows why it's taking me so long
to let my doubts go
You're the only one that I want
I don't know why I'm scared, I've been here...

Adel is singing about a new relationship she is getting into, although she still has fears and doubts about falling inlove again, she realises that its too late as she is already falling for her partner.even through the doubts she still finds the courage to take a chance on love again.She knows he is also inlove with her, but he is too scared she is trying to persuade him to give her a chance, to give their relationship a chance. She understands what very well what the partner is going through because she herself has had to fight the same demons before giving herself to love again. this song teaches us that real courage is only when one can love like they have never been hurt before and trust like they have never been deceived.

In the interview with Adele about her 21 album, she says that "One and Only" is about a fairytale that she has with another guy. She says that they both like each other, but neither of them is doing anything about it. In this song she is saying to him "We like each other, why don't we try and get together, and see what happens" - (you never know if you never try).

She explains in an interview. It is about meeting her truest love the one who balances her and he is afraid to release his heart on surface he is an outward mess trying to sabotage the purest love he's also ever known.
The forget your past is in reference to she's afraid to she has also been hurt before so she is trained to repel. Especially in this love to the highest she has ever know she afraid to and wants to run. She knows his doubt but she's saying finally I'm here it's ok to be you because you are me to a oneness that can't be compaired our measured or divided. It is the sun and the moon encompassing all of their dreams she's saying I am here you're the only one who is my witness to what we've created I don't care who believes that we are it.

I feel like this is about a person that wants to be with a person but person A is scared of falling in love again.So,Person B is almost challenging person A to love them,

Oddly enough, the way Adele's songs are written, the don't necessarily imply a guy and a girl so I'll just refer to them as "people" and you decide which is who. The 1st person has been in love with the second person for a really long time and has been fantasizing about what it would be like to be the "one and only" for a long time. The other person is in a bad relationship so the first person is trying to take this opportunity to help them realize that they actually have been in love with eachother and it's time to see what happens. The part that still confuses me is the part that says "until the end starts". Where does the end start? Does that mean they will be together until they break up? or is that just another way of saying they will be together forever... kind of like saying "until death do we part"?
