Adele – One And Only lyrics

You've been on my mind,
I grow fonder, every day.
Lose myself in time,
Just thinking of your face.

God only knows,
Why it's taken me so long,
To let my doubts go,
You're the only one that I want.

I don't know why I'm scared
Cause I've been here before
With every feeling, every word,
I've imagined it all.
You'll never know, if you never try
To forgive your past, and simply be mine.

I dare you to let me be, your,
Your one and only,
I promise I'm worthy,
To hold in your arms,
So come on.
And give me the chance,
To prove I am the one who can,
Walk that mile,
Until the end starts
.

If I've been on your mind,
Do you hang on every, word, I, say
Lose yourself in time,
At the mention of my name.

Will I ever know
How it feels to hold you close
And have you tell me
Whichever road I choose you'll go?

I don't know why I'm scared,
Cos we've been here before,
With every feeling every word,
I've imagined it all.

You'll never know,
If you never try,
To forgive my past
,
And simply be mine.

I dare you to let me be your,
Your one and only,
I promise I'm worthy,
To hold in your arms,
So come on,
And give me a chance,
To prove I am the one who can,
Walk that mile,
Until the end starts.

(Piano)

I know, it ain't easy,
Giving up, your, heart.
I know, it ain't, easy.
Giving up, your heart. (nobody's perfect)
I know it ain't, easy, (trust me I've learned it)
Giving up, your heart. (nobody's perfect)
I know it ain't, easy (trust me I've learned it)
Giving up, your heart. (nobody's perfect)
I know it ain't, easy (trust me I've learned it)
Giving up, your heart.(nobody's perfect)
I know it ain't, easy (trust me I've learned it)
Giving up, your heart,

So I dare you to let me be your,
Your one and only,
I promise I'm worthy,
To hold in your arms,
So come on,
And give me that chance,
To prove I am the one who can,
Walk that mile,
Until the end starts,
Come on,
And give me the chance,
To prove I am the one who can,
Walk that mile,
Until the end starts.

Come on, and give me the chance,
To prove that I am the,
One and only,
Who can,
Walk that mile,
Until the end starts.

    He'll always be my one and only,
    no matter what hardships we go through. We stick together & fight through them all. It's not about giving up because things seem to be only getting worse. It's about giving up on the bad feelings & move on with good feelings because no matter where you go there's always going to be a struggle. We were made to fight through thick and thin. With him, I'm willing to go through it all; because I know that we can make it (l).

    I only started listening to this song last night, and I absolutely love it. Adele is a truely gifted artist who has the power to evoke feeling into her music, the fact that she writes her music based on her experiences makes her music heart felt and genuine and just simply true. One and only is an amazing song, that everyone at some point in their life can and will relate to, its about you loving, someone so deeply and you being so scared of telling them exactly how much you feel for them because you're not sure if they'll feel the same. My favorite part of the song is the part where she sings " i dont know why i'm scared, i've been here before, every feeling, every word ,i've imagined it all, you'll never know if you never try. To forgive yor past, and simply be mine". I believe these lines of the song express exactly what it is about. You love that person so much, daydream of them constantly. Of you being together, you wishing you could own up to your fears and just tell them how you feel. But that's so hard cause you're afraid of getting hurt. Maybe because of previous heart-breaks. Okay I've said enough. I don't know exactly the meaning that adele put to this song while she was writing it. But this is just my interpretation of it:-) .

    It's also about falling in love with the wrong person. Or when the other person for some reason thinks he doesn't deserve to be loved. "you'll never know if you never try to forgive your past and simply me mine"
    Sometimes it's hard to let go all the fears, the prejudice, the past. But when we love someone the past doesn't matter as long as the present with that person is perfect.

    Sometimes, life might give you exactly what you wanted, all you dreamed and hoped for. But just because you were dying to experience those moments it doesn't mean you aren't scared. There's always ginna be a moment in life when you take your time and think if it's worth giving your heart to someone, even if you're sure he's the one. In my oppinion, that's exacthy the kind of feeling adele has been through when she wrote these lyrics.

    What I believe this song is saying that a person is in love with someone and admits it openly, but the other person is scared to admit that they are in love with the individual. So the person who is for sure in love with the next individual is trying to make them see they are in love with them. Basically telling them its ok to love me, because I love you too.
