The One
by Vanessa Carlton

And I come home
I hope to see this boy I know
I cant wait for us to be alone

Flipping through the radio
We sing along to the indie show
The songs they plague me more than I can say

In the tape I made you
Hope you think of me when it plays through
Feel kind of sad now that its done

And you think my times were free
All the ways you say to me
Sweet versions of lets wait and see

But you're always a golden boy
And I'm the girl that you enjoy
My parents say Is'nt he a gifted son
Time is always passing by
And still I have to wonder why
You cant come to tell me I'm the one

Summer goes and we have grown
We have our friends live on our own
Still I'm not the girl you want me to be

Say gravity can bend the time
Funny I always liked your mind
But this whole thing is crushing me

But you're always a golden boy
In this girls heart that you destroyed
You smile at me then have your fun
Time is always passing by
Still I give you another try
And hope that you will see that I'm the one

Say your scared
Get too close
Come lets see how it goes
See you now at the show
7th in the 7th row
Now when you look at me
You see what I've known for so long
Sad that you can be so lovely and so wrong

Came to say that I've moved
I see your face
You don't approve
I guess you could say that I'm already gone

But your always be my golden boy
I'm the summer girl
That you enjoyed
Some melodies are best left undone
I feel the time pass away
But in my songs you'll always stay
Don't need for you to tell me I'm the one
No, no
I don't need you to tell me I'm the one
You'll never know that I was the one

I think men want a women who loves them unconditionally but bears the threat of the woman who is unavailable. This song reminds me what it's like to love one man unconditionally but to lack the certain something needed to hook him. Saying she's the one is an admission that she loves him unconditionally and knows it, not that she's perfect for him.


I love love love Vanessa Carlton and her entire musical aesthetic.


i love when she sings "and i think when times were free"

Stevie in the background... sounding amazing as always

big person to sing this song - a way to close the door. unfinished business drains.

sadly people lift off the guys remorse for not revering the good girl, playing the good girl, and it's cheap and heartless

Potato Salad

undercover passion on the run, chasing love up against the sun

sometimes you take your shoes off, though. nestling, nestling.
and they tell you if you're not the chasee, you ain't doing it right

on one hand, why go along with loveleness, on the other hand only doing undercover passion on the run can be playing it cool by making world a little bit colder

I write all over the place cause assholes ruin lives, I won't call it okay let alone right

wonderful song your french fan christian


Transactor of Justice, your beloved hair the sacred olive branch of the enemy Mother of the Eumenides, Queen of the Underworld, You, maiden from Zeus through secret begetting. Mother of loud-shouting, many-shaped Bacchus. Playmate of the moving seasons, lightbringing, of beautiful form, Holy, ruler of all, maiden, showering fruits, Radiant, horned, you alone are longed for by mortals. You are Spring, delighting in fragrant meadows Your sacred body appears to us in growing fruits and branches.

Andrew Reaks

Love the first 25 seconds...a shame it doesn't continue in the background for entire song.

Persephone is NOT the daughter of Zeus, Theda is
