The Only One - Roy Orbison

The Only One

Roy Orbison

(Wesley Orbison - Craig Wiseman, Virgin/Atco 99245, 1989)

Everyone you know's been through it
You bite the bullet, then you chew it
There's a knot at the end of your rope
Buy a book to help you cope
But no consolation gonna come
You're the only one
Take a look through history
Recant some bits of poetry
You'll find the words still ring true
Some things don't change, some things do
And you're the only one with a broken heart
The only one who's affraid of the dark
The only one in a crowded room
The only one to see the bloom

What you wouldn't give right now
To be another face in the crowd
And you're the only one who is all alone
The only one who's love is gone
The only one who has given in
The only one who will give again
And you're the only one with a broken heart
The only one who's affraid of the dark
The only one in a crowded room
The only one to see the bloom
