'N Sync - If I'm Not The One Lyrics

If I'm not the one you want
Take your time to figure out

I'm staring at your picture every night
The scent of you still lingers in my mind
I wonder if you're alone and feel alright
And the sun has come out of the clouds

And sometimes when I listen to our song
The night seems so cold and far too long
I wanna call you up cause in the end
I keep writing letters to my garbage can

Lately, feels like I'm going crazy
And baby, come and lay down beside me

If I'm not the one you want, then who's he?
Take your time to figure out, and you'll see
If I'm not the one you want, then maybe
I'll be the one you need

I feel like it's on you I can depend
Wish I could turn back the hands of time
Enough of building castles in the sand
Why can't we be forever


[Chorus x2]

Somewhere, in the back of my mind (back of my mind)
I know that you will be mine (you will be mine)
Somehow, wish I could rewind (I could rewind)
And leave all the worries behind..

[Chorus x2]

I'll be the one you need

  31. Nathan Schulman

    Has the same CLACK sound as BSB - QPG, i like this song!!

  32. Microatlarge Corp

    Great memories. If only during my younger years, I had a friend named Anya and I didn't really know them previously being into strictly R&B but then after that day when I took her to see them, I began to understand why she loved them so much. Actually, being that now I feel different about their Albums, I have learned from experience that those were some of the generation's best time for music for the bachelors.

  33. Mary Lewis

    I miss them 😔😔😔

  34. Francesco Roma-est

    when I came out of the CD in Italy I hurried to buy it and from that moment it remained with me in my car even if now I no longer have the cd player but usb. This song is nothing short of amazing <3

  35. Stella Horan

    One of the most underrated n*sync songs ...

  36. Eri

    I never ate McDonald's as a kid, but I remember making my mom take me just to buy the CD from them lol. I love *Nsync and was completely obsessed with them lol This is my favorite song from them. I heard this again after years not too long ago and felt like I was 12 again.

    claudiu Jager

    Eri sad is they don't have a video clip to this song

    Zhaiyar Tyrus

    this one was one my favorites too. idk why it didnt become a hit rather it was hidden in a mc donalds soundtrack

  37. L Anna Petersen

    Damn I remember this song, it's a little vague❤

  38. farid sidi abdelghani

    my favourite!!!!!

  40. Reem Alaish


  41. J Crash

    For those that are wondering what album this song was from, it was from the Macdonald's CD Nsync did with Britney spears back in the early 2000s

  42. J Crash

    That McDonald's CD Nsync did with Britney back in 2000

  43. O.H

    This song makes me feel so many emotions, happy and sad at the same time. I LOVE NSYNC! I wish music was still this meaningful yet upbeat. *Sigh*

  44. noemistephanie93

    this song sounds like something the backstreet boys woulda sang.
    i like it alot though, they should kept it on a cd

    antoine r

    noemistephanie93 I was thinkin the same thing lol.

    Nicolette James

    I've read that a lot of songs originally written for bsb were turned down and given to nsync. So basically nsync sang a lot of bsb rejects lol.

  45. sigit firmansyah

    Thumbs up if you're watching this in 2017!

    farid sidi abdelghani

    Ęęśã Ķhãń if you ask a girl if im not the one you want.. then who is he? with he they mean the boy that she wants.. what kind of boy she wants..

  47. Rafael Carrizales

    I guess this track could have replaced some other N'sync album track...

  48. Sarah Bailey

    i loved this song

  49. Jeff King

    I knew this song was on some CD not released on an album. For some reason I was thinking I got it in a cereal box, but McDonald's makes sense too.

  50. Nettie Malv

    Such a good song!! Crazy that it was on a McDonald's CD, worth the money and meal^^


    awww yes I remember that. dang that was the good ol days

    Kelbi Frugia

    Nettie Malv that cd created my first boyband crush at 5 years old. Lol

  53. Nabeel Faiz

  54. Alexa Kovacs

    I remember this song track from the CD that McDonald's gave out as a promo, I sadly lost my CD throughout the years, :(. I love NSYNC even though they have broken up.

    Mars Topia

    I had the exact same CD. There was also some Britney Spears on it, I believe :D


    +Amelia Bieber 2000.

    Max Johnson

    @DustyinLVNV Thank you! (I think I found the cd at a resale shop in May. Yes I did buy it.)


    +Alexa Kovacs I also had it. I remember that my mom bought it for me from McDonalds. But I don't know where it is right now. I think it was too scratched at the end so I had thrown it away. This was the best song from the whole CD. The rest were Remixes from Nsync and Britney.

    Alexa Kovacs

    @Starsurfer1988 Yes, I Remember!

  55. Ahjane Butler

    Brings back my first crush in preschool

  58. China Brooks

    This sounds nothing like bsb quit playing games with my heart! That is an insult to Nsync! Love them

    Nicolette James

    I like nsync but bsb have always been better, sorry. And it has been confirmed that nsync sang a lot of songs that were originally offered to bsb but turned down. Like tearing up my heart? The bsb turned that down so then it was given to nsync.


    @Nicolette James They're loss
