Alicia Keys – One Thing lyrics
What... am I

What's life like on a train
Nobody there knows your name
Has your decision changed
Do you wish that I came

I thought you'd pick me up from work
I waited for your truck for half hour
I know you said you were gonna
I never thought you would leave

This one thing that was made for us
Chasing us, saving us
I take one thing over everything
I take that thing over anybody... Ohhh

Square face and puppy eyes
Found out they never lied
Your old man up in the sky left you a house with a yard
But ya went away and took a try on a place that's your size
Too good to finish life here with me

I couldn’t get you to say
Why you wouldn't let me come
What should be simple just ain’t
This shouldn't hurt like does

This one thing is made for us
Won’t stay with us, it ain’t saving us
But I'll take one thing over everything
I'll take that thing over anybody... Ohhh

Baby I need a pick-me-up
I need a complement, just a touch from a friend
I need a gentle word
I need your company
I'll keep

One thing that was made for us
Chasing us, saving us
I take one thing over everything
I take that thing over anybody... Ohhh

I take one thing over everything
I'll take that thing over everybody
Oh, Ooooh... ooooh... ooooh... ooooh
Ooooh... ooooh... ooooh... ooooh
Anything
Oh, Ooooh... ooooh... ooooh... ooooh
Ooooh... ooooh... ooooh... ooooh
Ooooh... ooooh... ooooh... ooooh
Take one thing
