Song Description

This is a story about a young woman, mid-twenties, who has been dissapointed and seen more heartache than she should have in her young life but somehow she finds the one person who brings it all together by giving her- One Love.

Story Behind the Song

The story was inspired my relationship with my boyfriend at the time, now husband. The song won runner-up in the 2003 John Lennon Songwriting Contest- yay!

Lyrics

ONE LOVE
copyright 2002 Abbie Gardner

VERSE:
You take ten thousand tears
collected over 26 years
You take a million lonely days
run together in a drunken haze
You take half a dozen heartaches
and eight apartments with 2nd hand clothes

CHORUS
God knows how you
take it, replace it,
with one love

You take seven hundred sleepless nights
twice as many useless fights
You take dirty disappointment
over dreams that died
You found the fragile light behind my fear
the hidden words that no one else could hear

God knows how you
take it, replace it,
with one love

BRIDGE
I had half a heart in a bag of bones
Hopes cut off and turned to stone
Dried up tears soaked in my skin
I thought I?d never love again
My pieces were just floating round
?til you took them
and you made me whole somehow

You gave me one love
