LIGHT IS FADING, DARKNESS COMING SOON,
FEELING LONELY IN THIS EMPTY ROOM.
SOMETHING'S BEEN GOING WRONG, I'M BARELY HOLDING ON.
AND IT'S TRUE, ALL IT TAKES IS

ONE GIRL FOR JUST ONE MINUTE,
ONE WORLD BUT YOU'RE NOT IN IT,
ONE GIRL, ALL IT TAKES IS ONE.

LATELY I FIND I'M FEELING INSECURE,
IS IT JUST ME I'M NOT REALLY SURE.
SOMETHING'S BEEN GOING ON, I KNOW IT WON'T BE LONG.
AND IT'S TRUE, ALL IT TAKES IS

ONE GIRL FOR JUST ONE MINUTE,
ONE WORLD BUT YOU'RE NOT IN IT,
ONE GIRL, ALL IT TAKES IS ONE.

IT'S GETTING VERY LATE,
WHY DID SHE GO AWAY?
I NEEDED HER TO STAY,
LOOK AT THE STATE I'M IN.

SOMETHING'S BEEN GOING ON,
HOW COULD I HAVE BEEN SO WRONG?
AND IT'S TRUE, ALL IT TAKES IS

YOU GIRL FOR JUST ONE MINUTE,
MY WORLD BUT YOU'RE NOT IN IT.
ONE GIRL, ALL IT TAKES IS
ONE GIRL FOR JUST ONE MINUTE,
ONE WORLD BUT YOU'RE NOT IN IT,
ONE GIRL, ALL IT TAKES IS ONE, (you)
ONE, (you)
ONE.
