The Only One
Billy Bragg Lyrics


Sometimes when you lose your way to me
I think you don't care at all
If you don't get here soon
I'll tear the clock down from the wall
Your family and friends don't understand
They treat me so strange
The book you said to read
Well I have read but nothing's changed

The clocks go forward the clocks go back
Yet here I sit if I was the only one and
Oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me
Can anybody hear me out there

He's up on his high horse again
You're down in the park
I'm left to fight my impulses alone here in the dark
The chain that fell off my bike last night
Is now wrapped 'round my heart
Sometimes I think that
Fate has been against us from the start

I long to let our love run free,
Yet here I am a victim of geography
And oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me
Can anybody hear me out there

She said, kiss me or would you rather
Live in a land where the soap won't lather
And oh
You know you are the only one
Yes you are the only one
Yes you are the only one

I'll tear that clock down from the wall
Your family and friends don't understand

Well I have read but nothing's changed

The clocks go forward the clocks go back
Yet here I sit as if I were the only one
And oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me

You're down in the park
I'm left to fight my impulses alone here in the dark
The chain that fell off my bike last night
Is now wrapped round my heart
Sometimes I think that

I long to let our love run free
Yet here I am a victim of geography
And oh you cannot hear me
Oh you cannot hear me
Can anybody hear me out there

She said kiss me or would you rather
Live in a land where the soap won't lather
And oh...
You know you are the only one
Yes you are the only one
Yes you are the only one

"kiss me or would you rather live in a land where the soap won't lather..." hilarious 

terry tibbs

I don't understand your question. I am not gay so don't want to kiss you. Soap does lather so your either/or is pretty stupid

Pat Morac

jhatter67.....I guess "she said: kiss me or would you rather go around the back and kiss my father" just didn't have the same ring....
