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 wanted

I don't know why I'm scared
Cos 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 worth it
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

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

    I love the subtitle. One and only. I love a person and this person is my one and only.
    This song is perfectly explained by april 4, 2012 5: 09 am and his/her bonus comment.
    For me, I too believe that this two individuals has love existing between them and she wants her to be the one that he will love all the way and she be his one and only.
    Any male or female who loves another truly wants to be loved by their loved one and be their one and only.

    "to me, the song means adele and the one she loves have both been hurt in the past. Likely for different reasons, they are both scared to give this relationship a start and now adele has let him in and it may have been too late, so now she is telling him to open up and let himself be hers. "
    I just wanted to add that I feel he may not be the only female in his life. I have lived this song, I have lived other songs of hers, this man she sings about is in a relationship. The love was not black and white, but it was strong.

    When I hear this song. I think of this guy who passed away who I really liked; it fits me. Like I didn't believe him when he said he liked me and I didn't believe it myself when I realized I liked him. Now he's been on my mind all the time and I do 'grow fonder with every word he says' in videos and so on. =p are. I. P
    ^^^ but obviously she's singing to someone she can't have like an impossible crush. She's basically saying to get out there and get what you want or else you'll hopelessly be in love. I can relate to this song in so many ways like my impossible crush since kindergarten xd.

    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).
