the only one lyrics – manchester orchestra

i am the only one that thinks i’m going crazy
and i don’t know what to do
and i am the only son of a pastor i know
who does the things i do
but if it was you
i don’t think that it would matter
and if it was true
then i just wouldn’t matter

i was amazed at the color and shapes you do
a paper part for two
i am the only son of a b*st*rd i know
that knows the b*st*rd too
because it was you
i called it a different story
but if i was you
i’d make this a simpler story

i bet you did what you did
when you did it
to do it again
by the time you were done with it
i bet you did what you did
when you did
just to tell every friend that you have
that the lord did it

i finally knew that i simply couldn’t matter
you finally knew that you simply couldn’t matter
i guess it’s true you never knew
the p*ssive power of the truth
would let me lose
if i could write another phrase
we might be better off this way
but there’s no use
