Song lyrics
If you're not the one
Then why does my soul feel glad, today?
If you're not the one
Then why does my hand fit yours, this way?

If you are not mine
Then why does your heart return, my call?
If you are not mine
Would I have the strength to stand, at all?

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We'll make it through and I hope you are
The one I share my life with

I don't wanna run away
But I can't take it I don't understand
If I'm not made for you
Then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there any way
That I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you
Then why am I crying on, my bed?
If I don't need you
Then why does your name resound, in my head? (In my head? In my head?)

If you're not for me
Then why does this distance maim, my life?
If you're not for me
Then why do I dream of you, as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away
But I know that this much is true
We'll make it through and I hope you are
The one I share my life with

And I wish that you could be the one
I die with, and I pray in you're
The one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don't wanna run away
But I can't take it I don't understand
If I'm not made for you
Then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there any way
That I can stay in your arms?

'Cause I miss you
Body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you
Into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today

'Cause I love you
Whether it's wrong or right
And though I can't be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

I don't wanna run away
But I can't take it I don't understand
If I'm not made for you
Then why does my heart tell me that I am?

Is there any way
That I can stay in your arms?

Such a beautiful song... I love the fact that Bedingfield himself thought it was too "cheesy" to release. It really is the ultimate "I love you" song.

i just heard this song for the first time the other day. despite the way things are now it really reminds me of a simpler time in my life when i was blissfully naive and really felt this way about someone i loved.

one of the best written songs lyrically i have ever heard. daniel bedingfield sings it amazingly except for the annoying falsetto... still a 5 star performance

It's okay, not the best song around, but shouldn't be the 3rd Hot Song!

This song is the best ever! I sang it to my fiancé before I asked her to marry me.. She just melted.. And I welled up, but I kept it together long enough to ask her to be my wife...
PS: I know I'm still 17, but hey we're in love.
