Arctic Monkeys - Only Ones Who Know Lyrics




In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling
That it was a heart that he was stealing
Oh, he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
The eyes are bright, he couldn't wait to get away
And I bet the Juliet was just the icing on the cake
Make no mistake, no

And even if somehow we could have shown you the place you wanted
Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own

And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
But all the little promises they don't mean much
When there's memories to be made
And I hope you're holding hands by new year's eve
They made it far too easy to believe
That true romance can't be achieved these days

And even if somebody could have shown you the place you wanted
Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
You are the only ones who know

    "And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
    But all these little promises they don't mean much
    When there's memories
    to be made"

    Ye, when still there's memories, moments or a *life* to be made, promises cannot stop the change. People change. No matter how many promises or how many times you tell someone that you won't leave them, everything chance. e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. and we can just accept the change because time waits for no one, and the promises or an "I love you" are not certificates for nothing.
    I am not saying that promises are impossible to fulfill, I'm saying that they don't mean as much actions.

  36. MusicallyStoned

    Last year, there was this coworker I had a huge crush on. My first ever "real" crush actually. I was 19, she was 22. We became best friends and as time went by, she began to confide in me. We began to share each other's life problems and such. One of her's was her boyfriend of four years. She expressed how despite the fact he was "always ready to impress", she felt like he saw her as simply "icing on the cake", and that he'd eventually meet someone better.

    I absolutely refused to show any interest in her romantically, and just kept telling her that everything would be ok and that he loved her. Wishing they'd be "holding hands by New Years Eve". Often, she'd just end up going on and on about her memories with him, to the point where she even opened up about their sex life, in detail. Me being pure, young, with no experience whatsoever, hearing all of this secretly crushed and hurt me, but I still took every bit of it. Everytime I thought of them, they really did make it far too easy to believe that true romance couldn't be achieved these days.

    In the end he really did couldn't wait to get away, and they broke up. After that she took a job abroad, and flew to a foreign place. Promised me and everyone of us she'd stay in touch. She wrote me a farewell letter, in it she said she wanted to see me again someday.

    That entire time, I refused to love her. Even if she really was leading me on, I refused to return anything back. It wasn't until she was gone that I came to terms with my feelings. But in the end, I knew I would've made it much better on my own. It's only been a few months since she's gone. But I still feel the same way. Because I was one of the only ones who knew.

    neil thompson

    Go and see about the girl dude

  37. jonh Connor

    the best song

  39. Eda D

  40. Santiago Cruz

    And... today... May 13th, me and my girlfriend broke up, and if some day I see her again, I will try, one more time, and even if someone show her the place she wanted, I'll rest well. I hope, she get better and find the love of her life, because, I found it out with her.

    [Verse 1]
    In a foreign place, the saving grace was the feeling
    That it was a heart that he was stealing
    Oh, he was ready to impress and the fierce excitement
    The eyes are bright, he couldn't wait to get away
    And I bet that Juliet was just the icing on the cake
    Make no mistake, no

    [Chorus]
    And even if somehow we could have
    Shown you the place you wanted
    Well, I'm sure you could have
    Made it that bit better on your own

    [Verse 2]
    And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch
    But all the little promises, they don't mean much
    When there's memories to be made
    And I hope you're holding hands by New Year's Eve
    They made it far too easy to believe
    That true romance can't be achieved these days

    [Chorus]

    In a foreign place the saving grace was the feeling
    That it was a heart that he was stealing

    Make no mistake, no

    And even if somehow you could have shown you the place you wanted

    Well, I'm sure you could have made it that bit better on your own
    And I bet she told a million people that she'd stay in touch

  73. Gucikurai

    The things that I could never made was the encourage to tell you the deepest feels out here. And suddenly its been too late forever

  74. Francisco Santana

    A codependent person finally gained the courage to let me go, I admit the sexual connection made me cave in every few months. I love that shes free, hope that shes safe , and have nothing but joyful sorrow in my heart for her.

  75. Anton M

    now imagine Alex Turner singing this in 2018 on a rhodes keyboard with his new sound/style

  76. tomas montiel

    I had a friend, got friendzoned, she's with someone else, fuck my life

  77. Emma Wilson

  78. Stefany Stefany

    For three years I heard this song with my (now ex) girlfriend at midnight of new years eve and now I have nobody's hand to hold on. And I not over yet. It's sad.

  79. Stefany Stefany

    DEPRESSED

  80. Spencer Bell

    This sounds kinda like a Christmas song and it made me think what if they had made a Christmas album around this same time. That would be cool

  81. monkey

    I just want to hug someone

  82. petalpickerr

    Someone really needs to make a “if ‘the only one who knows’ was played in another room in the rain.”

  83. Thematafata

    I realise that if you play it at 0.25x speed, it's horrifying.

  93. Danny Noriega

    Makes me wanna cry every single damn time

  94. Zedster

    This song never dies for me, so many memories... so many sleepless nights...

  95. ima airplane

    Damn, most of the Monkey's songs have a fast and upbeat tempo or at least start out slow and then go fast. But this just stays slow. It's so beautiful. The feels...

    Also, I find it frustrating that this has a million views and the original has like, 48k.
