Steppenwolf – You're The Only One lyrics

Words and music by John Kay

Dry your eyes, come sit close to me
Lay your head on my aching chest
And let me try to console and comfort you
It's my fault, I can do no less

All night long we've been talkin' 'bout
All the time that my work will take
But all is know is, I work for two
And if music ain't my life
It's still the living I make
So lie here tonight in the shelter of my arms
Nothing will ever take your place

You're the only one that knows me
You're the only one I trust
You're the only one that matters in my life
You're the only one I lean on
You're the only one I need
You're the only one that's ever been enough
Oh, you're the only one I ever loved

Soon I'll go back to battle
And soon I'll wear the right face for the part
But when it's over I'm coming back to you girl
For you're the only one that knows me by heart
So lie here tonight in the shelter of my arms
Nothing will ever take your place

You're the only one that knows me
You're the only one I trust
You're the only one that matters in my life
You're the only one I lean on
You're the only one I need
You're the only one that's ever been enough
Oh, you're the only one I ever loved

For all those days you lived alone
And all those nights when you were left behind
And all those times you felt left out
I can't repay but to make these moments count
So lie here tonight in the shelter of my arms
Nothing will ever take your place

You're the only one that knows me
You're the only one I trust
You're the only one that matters in my life
You're the only one I lean on
You're the only one I need
You're the only one that's ever been enough
Oh, you're the only one I ever loved
