All Time Low – My Only One lyrics
Paint yourself a picture, something perfectly obscure
To hide away the messes behind your manicure
And all of my obsessing to find the perfect words
Sick of second guessing, I didn't mean to make you hurt
Didn't mean to make you hurt, hurt hurt


What do you say when your heart's not in it, your heart's not in it?
What do you do when you just don't get it, you just don't get it?
Where do you go when you reach your limit, you reach your limit?
'Cause all I know, all I know is
You are my only one, you are my only one
You are my only one, that's all I know, you're all I know


Break another mirror to keep away the stares
Of another guilty reflex, a reflection left in tears
And all of my obsessing, tell me what was it worth?
Guess I should have learned my lesson, I didn't mean to make you hurt
Didn't mean to make you hurt, hurt, hurt

What do you say when your heart's not in it, your heart's not in it?
What do you do when you just don't get it, you just don't get it?
Where do you go when you reach your limit, you reach your limit?
'Cause all I know, all I know is
You are my only one, you are my only one
You are my only one, that's all I know, you're all I know

Wake me early, I've been dreaming
Dreaming that I'm only, only good enough for me and no one else
So wake me early, I've been dreaming
Dreaming that I'm only, only good enough for me and no one else

What do you say when your heart's not in it, your heart's not in it?
What do you do when you just don't get it, you just don't get it?
Where do you go when you reach your limit, you reach your limit?
'Cause all I know, all I know is
You are my only one, you are my only one
You are my only one, that's all I know, it's all I know
You are my only one, you are my only one
You are my only one, that's all I know, you're all I know

    This song gives me such mixed emotions. At first it's like alex is fighting with the girl he loves, or at least telling her to stop covering all her faults. But then it kind of turns into him just spilling out his heart to her. She is his only one. And then it kinda turns into him hating himself, like he has never been good enough for anyone. And then the song really explodes to a man who's heart will break if his girl leaves him. He feels like he would die without her. All he is sure of is his undying love for her. I just feel like there's the one and there's your only one. The one is who you are in love with, but the only one will always have your heart no matter what. It's just that your feelings are stronger for your only one. They can do no wrong in your eyes and you just want nothing more than for them to be happy forever. It's difficult and hard to explain, but it's real.
