Enlightening drama sent from where
A Casanova likely glare
And I was chosen, I was there

The wells get deeper, more unfolds
And at the bottom there she goes
But wells are endless, I found more

Flowers, candy, flirty, late nights
On the speed dial that was you too
Dinner, movie, sweetheart, kisses
He don't dance but tangles with two
I find you plus me, divide me from him but I discovered
Many more and again and again

And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies

And he don't now
How he stole many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
(I would've been the one)

I held the title, walked the grounds
I was the trophy while you ducked down
And she was cool with his fooling around
(Yes, she was, yes, she was, yes, she was)

Now number four was there to ride
And five was crazy, his wild child
And when we're rocky he calls number nine

Flowers, candy, flirty late nights
On the speed dial that was you too
Dinner, movie, sweetheart, kisses
He don't dance but tangles with two
I find you plus me, divide me from him but I discovered
Many more and more and again

And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies

And he don't know
How he steals many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
(I would've been the one)

I was the one, yes, I was the one
And yes, that was my name inked up on his arm
And if he loved me that much and still did me wrong
You feeling sorry but you are holding on

I was the one, yes, I was the one
Key word is, was, guess, I was the one
I figured out he was empty on my arm
He had to find the answer in the something on someone

And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies

And he don't know
He stole many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
'Cause I would've been the one
I would've been the one
