Lyrics / Songs

You’re Not The One

First I gave him beauty.
Then I gave him light.
He said “Your time will never come.”
But I knew he loved me.
So I would give him life.
He said “Your time will never come.
You’re not the one.”

In the grip of passion,
And the heights of love,
I said, “Take from me what you want.”
So he took my pleasure,
And called me whore.
He said “You’ll pray it, but I won’t.
You’re not the one.”

So to his frustration,
I gave my face.
And now I’ll never look the same.
Here in fractured mirrors,
I have found my place.
He said “Your looks will never change.
You’re not the one.”

Then I gave him family,
So he might know joy.
He said “These beasts will never do.”
In the place of loving,
The child fears men.
He said “I bite before I chew.
You’re not the one.”

Neither sigh nor anguish,
Nor hope nor pride,
Can conjure life where there’s no air.
But tears on a pillow,
Lost in the dark,
Will find a way to persevere.
He’s not the one.
