My Sunday Song – “Only One” by Scott Stapp

For My Sunday Song #9, I have gone back a few years and chosen my favorite song by Scott Stapp.  Yes, the Creed frontman himself.  His last album ‘Proof of Life’ was one of the best albums in 2013 and this song still speaks to me today.

My interpretation of the song is that the song is about God and how He will always be there for you no matter what you are going through.  And that is a great feeling when you know that is the case.

The song is also special to me because when I hear it, I think about my 2 beautiful daughters.  I want them to know that not only is God always there for them, but I am there for them as well no matter what they are going through.  I will always believe in them and be supportive in everything they do…even if I don’t agree with their decisions.

There is a great interview with Scott Stapp on this album and this song that you can catch on CBN.com.  In the interview Scott Stapp says the following about the song:

… and then “Only One,” which is the grace and the love of God, and how He spoke inside my heart amidst all of those situations until finally my heart was ready to see that this is the solution. This is the answer. I’ve just got to let go of who I am and start trying to figure out who He is. Once I got on that path, that’s when my life started to change.

I hope you find something special in this song as well…Enjoy!!!

“Only One”

You can go, you can leave this town.
Forget about the people and the places,
and the faces that have let you down
You can hide, you can change your name
But the fear will always find you,
if it’s coming from inside you,
so you’ve gotta change

So if it’s the same to you, you could stay with me
I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
And you would see, I’m never gonna leave you

Even when you feel so low like you might let go
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the last one giving up on you

Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the first, last, first, last and only one.

If you leave, tell me where you’d go?
Would you lock yourself inside a place,
so no one had the chance to face you on your own

‘Cause when we fall down, we can stay down
But the freedom that we wanna find,
is only found when we’re off the ground.

So if it’s the same to you, you could stay with me.
I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
And you would see, I’m never gonna leave you.

Even when you feel so low like you might let go
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the last one giving up on you.

Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the first, last, first, last and only one

So if it’s the same to you, you could stay with me
I could take you from your nightmares, and put you inside your dreams
And you would see, I’m never gonna leave you.

Even when you feel so low like you might let go
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the last one giving up on you.

Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the first, last, first, last and only one.

Even when you feel your breath fading from your lungs
I will be the first hand reaching out.
I will be the first, last, first, last and only one
