"The Only One" is a song on the second studio album, The Open Door.

BackgroundEdit

"The Only One" was originally called "Tuna Afternoon" and it talks about Lee's experiences with close-mindedness and people around her which seemed lost in a world they didn't belong in. It starts with a piano intro similar to the band's Fallen era and songs by Sarah McLachan. In the song, Lee "decries human guidance" with the chorus lines "All our lives / We've been waiting / For someone to call our leader / All your lies / I'm not believing / Heaven shine a light down on me."

LyricsEdit

The tuna fish is singing
In a tuna afternoon

You know you're not the only one

When they all come crashing down mid-flight
You know you're not the only one
When they're so alone they find a back door out of life
You know you're not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives we've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

So afraid to open your eyes, hypnotized
You know you're not the only one
Never understood this life, and you're right I don't deserve
But you know I'm not the only one

We're all grieving
Lost and bleeding

All our lives we've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me

Don't look down
Don't look into the eyes of the world beneath you
Don't look down, you'll fall down
You'll become their sacrifice
Right or wrong
Can't hold onto the fear that I'm lost without you
If I can't feel, I'm not mine
I'm not real

All our lives we've been waiting
For someone to call our leader
All your lies I'm not believing
Heaven shine a light down on me
