Lyrics

A work it progress… Here’s the latest version in draft:

[audio:20060717_OneForMe.mp3]

So I spent It took me twenty-one years in nine states
To get my license to drive To finally see your pretty face
That brought me here to this cliff And I’ve been wreckless and wild
At the brink of my life But now I’m findin’ my place
I sit here Lord, wondering I couldn’t believe I fell so fast, but darlin
Just why I’m alive Look what you’ve made me do
Draw me near

Make this choice for me clear I’ve gone and fell in love with you

How do I find you Now it’s killin’ me
If I keep scuffling my feet
If I’m not by your side
I’m runnin around in circles
Think I’ll stick around for awhile
Aimlessly incomplete
I gotta keep you in my life

Oh, to Let me be the only one for you
And, oh if we could be together soon Cause I’ve looked this world over
and now my search is through

Lord, may I see We’re meant to be
Just what I have to do And I promise I’ll be true
You’re the one for me
Baby, let me be the one for you

So I get down on my knees Well I never thought I’d ever find
And I pray every night
a woman quite like you
That I’ll find you someday So I thought I’d ask the good Lord
If I do everything right What he thought I should do
Over and over again through my live I’ve tried Like a miracle you walked by and I just knew
Not to steer It was you
From the straight and narrow I fear That the good Lord been leading me to

Don’t let me slip up Everything happens
Fall down this mountainside According to his plan
Cause if she’s perfect Having you in my life
I’ll need her in my life Makes me a better man

Oh, to Let me be the only one for you
And, oh if we could be together soon Cause I’ve looked this world over
and now my search is through

Lord, may I see We’re meant to be
Just what I have to do And I promise I’ll be true
You’re the one for me
Baby, let me be the one for you

I’ve had my heart trampled on
So now I’m down on my knees
Broken down to my knees Asking you tonight
I’ve been through the fire If you would take my hand in yours
I’ve been burned by that heat For the rest of your life
All that went wrong just made me strong And I know I’ve been a rambler
Now I’m so ready to be But if you’d be my wife
The man for you I’ll stay
I swear my love will remain true Cause you’re all I want anyway

And everything happens Every night you’re all I’m dreaming of
According to his plan I want to see your face each morning
Baby, I’m waiting for you to take my hand When I wake up (my love)

Oh, to Let me be the only one for you
And, oh if we could be together soon Cause I’ve looked this world over
and now my search is through

Lord, may I see We’re meant to be
Just what I have to do And I promise I’ll be true
You’re the one for me
Baby, let me be the one for you

    I liked the original first two lines better, but I am sure there are people who get paid a lot more than I do helping you along
