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.

    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:-) .

    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).

    The classic story of a boy and a girl. This time there's a boy on the ouside looking in. This girl and boy have their fights, but are convinced they need each other, they play cat and mouse and he's always talking to other girls yet she can't let go of him even though she knows he does her wrong, he's a player, nothing else. They finally break up, the outside boy wants her to know she can be treated like a princess, if she can give him a chance. Let him, be her one and only. I was the girl and the outside boy told me to listen to this song, I've been in love with it and him ever since.

    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.

    Guys think that they'll find the perfect "princess", the perfect woman for them. It happens often that when they think they have found her, after a while they come up with the smallest defect and she's not the "one" anymore. Woman on the other hand are more objective and understand that no body is perfect. In this song she's only asking for a chance to prove that she can make him happy.
