Only One
April 14, 1987

Only one of all the dreams in your universe comes true
Only one of all the nights were made for you
Only one of all the roses is the brightest red
Only one of all the many thoughts in your head
come true

The hope you have will come and go
Like every spring, the winter snows
Very few will come to bloom
And set up chambers in your room

Only one of all the fish in the sea call to you
Only one of all your dreams come true
Only one of all your years mean much
Only one of your voluminous plans comes true

The animals all play hide and seek all day
But learning children find no time to play
They're all waiting for The Easter Bunny and Santa Claus
To expose all the children's flaws

Only one of all the clouds in the sky
Only one of all the times you've ever tried
Only one of all the countries in the world
Will greet you with its flag unfurled

The books will close each night at dusk
The reach of every question mark
The babies cry when its time for bed
And you will forget every word thats said

Only one of all your nightmares come to pass
Only one of all your pains will be your last
Only one of all your freedoms truly sets you free
Only one unchanging wave disturbs the sea
Set in motion by the breeze

While waiting for it all to come
We explore the land and have some fun
While you are home and all alone
Waiting for your only one

One dream to share
One way to care
One mountain to climb
One bell to chime
One way to tell if you're alive
One way to find your way inside

One dream in the night
One wish in your sight
One scheme to get me
One fish in the sea

Why wait, why cry
Set out today and really try
To find the only one
