Linda Ronstadt – One For One lyrics

If I hadn't grown with you
And if half my life had been spent
When we came together
Would it be different
Are you any more like you
Though I know that I've asked before
I'm sure there're quite a few like me
Why should I be different
Is it true that there's just one for one like I've been told

So hard to tell truth from lies
With young eyes of innocence
The glass slipper, the prince's kiss
They make no difference
I thought I knew what I knew
I thought that I knew what they meant
So so soon too late I realize
A meaning so different
Is it true that there's just one for one like I've been told

The highway ends at the iron fence
Where the diesel trucks march by
The sounds of living can make no sense
When they make no difference

Wooden boxes cause a throne
The hollow faces beneath the stone
And all the blank ones on their way home
I see no difference
Is it true that there's just one for one like I've been told
