Haynes, Warren - I'll Be The One Lyrics

When you're walking down the street
I'll be the one that stares like a statue
You turn the corner
I'll be the one that follows you downtown
When you finally notice me
I'll be the one fumbling with his feelings
Totally oblivious to anything and everything else around

Girl, when we met
I'll be the one that showers you with attention
To win your love
I'll fight until the very end
When you treat me like a fool
I'll be the one that doesn't need redemption
Yeah, drive me away
I'll keep coming back again and again

I'll be the rain if you want me to be
Help you to grow with no guarantee
Even be the clown sad but true
But don't use me up
Or I'll be the one that used to worship you

When silence fills your world
I'll be the one that knows what you're thinking
And when passion burns like fire
I'll be the one bathing in the light
When the curse of darkness falls
I'll be the one who offers a candle
I'll even be the cushion
For things that go crazy in the night

I'll be the rain if you want me to be
Help you to grow with no guarantee
Even be the clown sad but true
But don't use me up
Or I'll be the one that used to worship you

I'll be the rain if you want me to be
Help you to grow with no guarantee
Even be the clown sad but true
But don't use me up
Or I'll be the one that used to worship you

    Beautiful song. WH your the man.

  3. Sunshine Daydream

    It saddens me to not see that Dead & Company choose John Meyer over Warren Haynes. I think Meyer can jam guitar great no doubt, but with the heart and soul of Warrnen, never happening sorry guys. I loved Haynes in all his works, Love all he's done to help the Allman Brothers he's just a natural fit with those guys, oh well I guess Dead & Company lost out big time.

  4. Dr R Son

    Love warren haynes went to the Christmas jam couple years back probably the best time my Dad and I ever had in Asheville it was the best show ever I need to go back but my dad passed last October so idk if I would up to it, but I know Dad would want me to go have a good time regardless I know he'd be at the show with me in spirit I know he's always with me. That was the first and last show we ever got the chance to see together. Thank u Gov't Mule/Warren Haynes I am thankful it was ur annual Christmas Jam, Untouchable! I miss u dearly everyday dad wish u was here I love u more than I thought u may have known, I'm sorry for that wish we had done much more together towards the end, but it usually was just me and you their for one another and barely/rarely if @ all anyone else at all. I miss u and dad I love u so so so much I hope u know this now if not when u was here. We'll go to another Christmas jam and get rowdy again soon ok.

  38. Cammy Weber

    I love this song....For love like that does exist cause I found it. Well, no...It found me.... For this is our first song that my husband played for me when we first started talking... He knew Warren from his younger days when he used to be a taper for him. But any ways we where only friends at the time. When my husband and I were split he was there for me to help me through all the hard times. After my divorce... My best friend and I got married and yes he is the best thing that could ever happen to me and my boys...And NO my divorce was not because of my best friend just to clear that up.
    I am happily married to my best friend and my soul mate... I thank God for him every day. So true love is out there and I did not believe people about them finding their "soul mates" until my meet and married mine..

  44. cahatridge

    Love this song. Think the live version from his Bonnaroo CD is a little better, it's just him and his acoustic on stage.

    But this ain't bad either!

  45. Ross Ritchie

    I took it the wrong way.
