One Lyrics

Play "One"
on Amazon Music

Tell me that you turned down the man
who asked for your hand
cause you're waiting for me
and I know you're gonna be away a while
but I've have no plans at all to leave
and will you take away my hopes and dreams
and just stay with...

    This song speaks about a lost love due to distance. A woman whom he might have actually left in pursuit of his personal dreams but who actually meant a lot but unfortunately, the realization came at that point when he was about to lose that love to another man who already proposed marriage. The gravity of loss was emphasized in the lyrics "all my senses came to life as im stumbling home as drunk as i, had ever been". However, he wanted her to remain his friend despite the loss. Because for him he realized her worth as his only one, too late. So he's settling for the idea that she would remain even just as a friend xoz there's no other who could replace her in his heart.

    To me, it means that he lost someone he loves. Deeply. Pain and distance took them to different ends of the earth. Yet he can still feel her entirety in his heart and soul. Because she is the only one. And “always be a friend” to me; means the undoubtedly respect he did and will continue to have for her. Which is rarity in its own right. Because to have a true and authentic friend is a specialness in of itself.

    This describes a love that went sour. In the years since, he has not moved on but she has. He has wasted his life drinking and wishing. The crushing revelation of a proposal has just hit him. In desperation, he confessess his love but finds that she is resolute. Knowing that his chances are gone, he begs her to at least remain friends.

    This song is about a break up with a lover or friend and it states that you cant lose them because... They are they only one. Unique, theres no one like that friend.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think it's more about he falls in love with his best friend, but doesn't have enough courage to tell the person about his feeling because he is afraid that he'll ruin their friendship..

    This song is a sad love song about losing the person you love due to distance . And knowing you can't be with them due to circumstances beyond your control. He actually looked forward to waiting for her but eventually life catches up with you in matters of the heart. He talks about how lonely he could get and how everything would change without her in his life. I relate to this song on so many levels. :) one of my faves
