My One And Only Thrill
Melody Gardot Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Birds may cease to spread their wings
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
When does May envelop spring
But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause
When I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill

Ships may never leave the dock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Ticks may never hear a tock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause
When I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill

Shores may never reach the tide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Buds may never open wide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause
When I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill
You're my
You're my





You're my one and only
Thrill

Birds may cease to spread their wings
Even if birds stop flying


But it don't matter
It's not important


But it don't matter
It's not important


When does May envelop spring
When May arrives and brings the spring season


But it don't matter
It's not important


But it don't matter, 'cause
It's not important because


When I'm with you
When I'm in your company


My whole world stands still
Everything around me becomes calm and serene


You're my one and only thrill
You're the only thing that excites and thrills me

Once upon a beautiful memory Melody
I gave you a lovely rose by the sea near a stream.
Like a photograph in a dream,
Its flawless beauty was timeless
and frozen like a silent scream.
A token of pure beauty to honor you
on any given special day.
A rose of glass that
will never wilt or go away.
I feel your kind tender heart in this distress
to suppress the foul stench of ugliness,
which others are very careless and thoughtless has given out.
Only a fragile glass rose can honor you as a token
of beauty and friendship which can never be broken.
I am here with my glass rose honoring you in my
dreams of beauty as I have humbly spoken,
after looking into you're wonderful eyes and
seeing you're divine smile without cries.
My rose is made from fragile glass it will never die or be broken
it lives on within your divine majestic beauty and it's not a token.
Your beauty glows towards the heavens as a guiding light a beacon of loveliness for all eternity at first sight without any lessons, carelessness, and thoughtlessness.
You are magnificently filled with bliss.
Suddenly I get this feeling deep within my soul, my mind draws a blank, and my heart sank into my hands slightly shaking as my soul begins racing and quaking. I feel like I'm losing control of sorrow
I'm nervous inside and out about losing another morrow.
I have an unexplainable feeling its as big as Kilimanjaro,
I wish I could figure this out when I see your divine beauty without a doubt, you are so lovely as yarrow and songs of sparrows.
These Monarchs Butterflies waiting on roses in every row trying to borrow every bit of tomorrow like the great pharaohs Nefertiti or Ramesses and humble me hoping to see your majestic beauty.

But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause

You're my one and only thrill

Ships may never leave the dock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Ticks may never hear a tock
But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause
When I'm with you
My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill

Shores may never reach the tide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter
Buds may never open wide
But it don't matter
But it don't matter, 'cause

My whole world stands still
You're my one and only thrill
You're my
You're my

You're my one and only

Never been so affected by music in years. It just reaches in & grabs you by the heart. What an amazing woman. Fiercely - sincerely - I wish for you to be pain free.

Ruds0n

her voice goes straight to the heart, i could listen to this all day!

FrancescoGuardi

Her voice is unbelievable and unique, but there's someone behind who let this star shine by superb arrangements . I wonder who did it...

dbuck1964

She was a fully trained classical musician by the time she was 12 years old. Truly a child prodigy, she certainly works with people, but she doesn’t need anybody to do anything for her.

Herve Gonord

Belle Mélodie, voix extraordinaire, musique dosée à la perfection... la chanson parfaite !!!!!!!!. Impossible de s'en lasser !. Mélody : vous êtes formidablement belle et douée. Vous êtes bouleversante !. Bien à vous.

irit1885

I saw her at Summerstage in NYC on June 1st, and when she performed this song I could barely stop myself from crying, it was just so powerful, the emotion in her voice when she sings it can not be described

David Hopkins

I'm an old school rocker and I am brought to tears by this stunning music.

Renee Simpson

finally an artist with real talent and emotion in her voice.

Ilinca V

I mostly like rock (gothic-ish), like evanescence and linkin park, but this is...amazing. i bought her album and it's really a piece of art. it calms me down almost instantly. [and man, she has some great hair going on.]

Beth S

She was simply mesmerizing singing this with just her voice and a piano on Live at Abbey Road. Thanks for uploading this, great quality. xx
