Not The Only One
Bonnie Raitt Lyrics


I was in a daze, movin' in the wrong direction
Feelin' that I'd always be the lonely one
Then I saw your face, on the edge of my horizon
Whisperin' that I wasn't the only one
The lonely one

One chance intervention, see what it can signify
The slightest misapprehension, baby
And we'd have passed each other by
When I heard your sweet voice callin'
Saw your light come shinin' through
I couldn't stop my heart from turning
Churnin' out my love for you

I was in a daze, movin' in the wrong direction
Feelin' that I'd always be the lonely one
Then I saw your face, on the edge of my horizon
Whisperin' that I wasn't the only one
That lonely one

True love or perfection
It seems like it's overdue
Then just when you least expect it
It comes sneakin' up on you
When I thought that I was dreaming
Felt your body close to mine
Now love takes on a different meaning
Together till the end of time

I was in a daze, movin' in the wrong direction
Feelin' that I'd always be the lonely one
When I saw your face, through the web of my confusion
Whisperin' that I was not the only one
The lonely one, oh the lonely one, ooh baby

Not the only one
I'm not the only one
I'm not the only, only, only one, baby, ooh
I am not the only one

The slightest misapprehension, baby
And we'd have passed each other by
When I heard your sweet voice callin'

The lonely one, oh the lonely one, ooh baby
Not the only one

Feelin that I'd always be the lonely one
Then I saw your face, on the edge of my horizon

Giving your music another chance after many years. How did I not like this before? I guess maturity brings appreciation for real talent.

@Nadine D Well stated. I remember so many of her songs as a kid and like she says, "Just when you least expect it, it comes sneaking up on you". Being a bit older now and appreciating music and hearing older songs with a new perspective brings a fresh but somehow familiar feeling....but WHAT A FEELING.🙂

Nadine D

I feel the same as you Corinne. I think I was overexposed to some of her songs as a young pup lol now I'm almost 40 and it hits me in the feels

Firm believer in the idea of growing into an artists music. I go through these phases where I finally adopt old music as my own. I think its a bit supernatural sometimes, too when you finally understand or stumble upon a song that's been there a long time, maybe all your life and then all at once you finally get it when you need it most. I have always liked Bonnie Raitt but I know I still need to discover it on a deeper level. Beatles are on my radar this year too. Last years "discovery" was Tom Petty, prior to that Sting. A few years before that Steely Dan. Right now I am also growing into Springsteen. The River was one of my first albums, on vinyl even! When I was a kid my mom signed me up for Columbia and gave me all the freebies for Christmas so I didn't choose it for myself or even really like it much less understand it. But those songs are locked away and every now and then I hum something from it and then find it on YouTube, listen again and maybe another track and I always love it. Hearing things again for the first time is one of the biggest joys of my adult life.
