I THOUGHT YOU WERE THE ONE

songwriters: Emma White and Retsy White

If you want to be a screw up

I guess I’m just gonna have to let you go

Cause I’ve got too much riding on this

To let you take hold

 

And I thought a lot about letting you in

and slowing down my world

and lord knows I needed that

but that’s all lost for now

 

Cause I thought you were the one

I thought you were the one

And now it’s all a wash and it’s just such a shame

Cause I had so much love to give

But you were so damn vein, vein

I thought you were the one

 

It’s funny how a heart can mend

when you find someone new

and hopefully next time around

The love I give won’t be misused


And I’ll still wonder where you are

And if we’ll cross paths one day

And when I’m driving past your house

It might be hard to take

 

Cause I thought you were the one

I thought you were the one

And now it’s all a wash and it’s just such a shame

Cause I had so much love to give

But you were so damn vein, vein

I thought you were the one

 

One, one, oh yeah

 

Part of me hoped we could work it out

But I’ve got to let you go to save myself right now

 

Still I thought you were the one

I thought you were the one

I thought you were the one

I thought you were the one

And now it’s all a wash and it’s just such a shame

Cause I had so much love to give

But you were so damn vein, vein, yeah

I thought you were the one
