The One

I have my iTunes on shuffle and India.arie’s ‘The One’ came on. I’ve listened to this song on MANY a long road trip and today I think I listened to the lyrics for the first time, or maybe they finally spoke to me. The first stanza was exactly how I’d been feeling about this one guy for a few months. I mean I had it BAD, and he was just totally clueless or something. I finally got over it when I realized that even after knowing him for four years of college, as well as I “knew” him (read: actually listening and paying attention during too many conversations to count and many nights of studying together), he “knew” very little about me. Or rather, his perception of me was superficial and could just as easily have been created from never spending one minute with me, which wasn’t the case. So he either a) willfully chose to not even passively learn anything about me through our many interactions or b) is just dammed stupid. 

Whatever the case, I’m over it.

“The One”

I’ve got this feeling that I need to express
Letting it out so you don’t have to guess
I’m making myself vulnerable but you keep holding back so scared to let go
If you’re looking for love then I think I could be the one, the one, the one

Tell me why you wanna be so cruel
Acting like you don’t feel the way that you do
We’ve got the strongest compatibility
I just wanna explore the possibilities
But if you only wanna play games with me I aint the one, the one, the one

I aint got a husband
You aint got a wife
We two grown folks lets spend some together
Get to know me better, maybe share some laughter
It just might turn into happily ever after
You never know, I just might be the one, the one, the one

[Bridge:]
I just might be that special girl
The one that God made especially for you
I just might be that special girl
The one to make you happy
Just wanna make you happy

La lala la lala la
La lala la lala la
La lala la lala la

I got a feeling that you just might be the one, the one, the one
