Mariah Carey - The One Lyrics




See I'm going through a situation
That I can't help
Wanna get a little closer
But I promised myself
That I would never give my heart
Away again
Oo oo babe, I know it's hard
Butcha gotta understand it
The truth is all the hurt and the pain
And the shit that you get
When you have it
Ain't worth it
I've been there so many times
I should know better but I
Can't stop what I feel
When you're next to me
I really think I

Finally found somebody
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
'Cause I know that you're the one

(Baby you're the one)
(Baby you're the one)

See the problem with relationships
In general is that it's always a game
In the beginning they'll do
Anything to have you
And once they do it's never the same
And I, know everyone out there can relate
So the question is
One: do I really wanna trust this feeling
Two: do I wanna let it pass me by
Three: do you think it's only superficial
Four: could it actually be different this time
Someone to love me
Someone to be my everything
Maybe I've stumbled upon

Finally found somebody (The only one)
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love (No, no)
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous (I just don't wanna be hurt)
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
'Cause I know that you're the one
(But boy I think you might be the one)
Finally found somebody
That could be the one (Maybe I've found)
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous (Boy I'm so afraid)
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
'Cause I know that you're the one
('Cause I know you're the one)

Oh baby
Sweet darling
I
I think I finally found

Finally found somebody (The only one)
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous (No)
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
(I don't wanna be hurt anymore)
This is bad 'cause I know that you're the one
(But I think you might really be the one)
Finally found somebody
Could be the one, but I promised myself (Finally found)
That I wouldn't give in to love
(I promised myself not to give in)
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
This is bad
(Anymore this is bad)
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
'Cause I know that you're the one
('Cause I know that you're the one)
Finally found somebody
Could be the one
(I finally found somebody that could be the one)
But I promised myself
(But I promised myself that I wouldn't give in to love)
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
(And I'm scared)
And I'm nervous
(And I'm nervous)
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
'Cause I know that you're the one
(Please, please baby baby)

    Lozan Beat

    Thank you so much

  40. Rodolfo Gouvea

    Incredible they removed the original one it was mic feed that you hear the only few parts that she actually sang

  41. Santino Colombano

    Better than anything you hear on the radio today.

  42. afgzee

    Wow this song is good those whistles at the end ❤️❤️

  43. Galina Dontask

    I love just before the end, she starts her whistles and bluntly stops, then changes it all together. Perhaps her whistle register and singing it the way she recorded it on the album wasn't going to work for her... Regardless those end whistles were better than the studio recording IMO

  44. Kinda

    2:38 Guitar sounds amaizing along with Mariah's voice. This moment is precious, cuz there's no such one in the Album version.
    There's not much guitar in her songs in general.

  45. Kinda

    Can't find the mp3.

    Kinda

    Found it. Need some lyrics.

  46. Inspired Genious

    3:42 👍❤️🙂

  47. Inspired Genious

    I love the high notes at the end. She sang them beautifully. She makes singing look so easy. My true number 1 singer right here. 🙂❤️

  48. SINFVL

    This sounds just like Daydream, Charmbracelet really was her 2nd prime :o

    Tevin Scott

    SINFVL And Emancipation era was her 3rd lol

    Isma Carvantes

    @Tevin Scott no emancipation was not her 3rd prime. She spent the whole era with very tired live vocals... 2012-2013 was definitely better.

    Shice

    @Isma Carvantes 2nd prime could be argued all of charmbraclet era with some of glitter era and some of emancipation era.

    Isma Carvantes

    @Shice yeah Charmbracelet and glitter were her 2nd Prime. BUT as I expressed emancipation was kinda NOT because her vocals were actually very tired and truly raspy (Butterfly is b u t t e r compared to emancipation).

  49. The Mariah Empress

    Love this song!

  50. JackHow97

    1:03 lip sync fail..??

    jaypaidincash

    Its dubbed...not lipped. Meaning she sang live and they went back abd edited vocals with edited album vocals or re-recorded vocals

    MK Luna

    @Kinda You are right! People just don't understand!

    Kinda

    @MK Luna can you write down the lyrics?

    Abang Bay

    @Rodolfo Gouvea fuck u! Leave my mariah alone bitch!

    Abang Bay

    Fuck u! She wasnt lip sync! What the fuck is wrong with u people?

  51. Vicksy Nurhayati

    she is really blessed with her angelic voice and wide voice ranges. THAT distinguished her from any other female singers, imho.

    LusiFr

    She is THE female singer

  52. TheFamilitchiChannel

    vocal genius!

  53. Fábioso Augusto

    my favorite song amazing Mimi

  54. TheFamilitchiChannel

    I wanna cry, it's just so beautiful it sounds like an angel from above.

    Abang Bay

  55. LadyLambilicious

    Mariah is in a class all unto HERSELF!!! When folks try to compare her to this person, or that person they are being silly. To the people who continue to compare: Do you feel great when your parents compare you to a sibling, or a teacher compares you to an actual smart student; or if your lover compares you to a better sexual experience? I would gauge not. Mariah is respected by your loyalists because she made her "mark" the old fashioned way: Hard work, rejection, PERSEVERANCE! PERIOD!!!!! IF YOU DON'T LIKE HER OR HER MUSIC, DAMMIT, DON'T LISTEN OR VISIT ANY PAGE THAT INVOLVES HER NAME. #THATISALL

  56. LadyLambilicious

    They can say what they may, but MiMi continues to evolve into that vocal beast. Back in the Day and in this Day. #Don'tPlayWithHer

  57. giancarlo garcia

    I love her voice she is the best with the execption of Whitney they are on the same level

    markel dracon

    In fact there are some female singers that are/were at the same size of them, like Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle

    Bohdan Terletskyi

    Mariah is the best singer of ALL TIMES ALL TIMES so if you don't believe me you better look up at the Google search

    Just Cade

    I see Mariah and Whitney on the same level also, both at #1. They are both just such rare talents, and they are both LEAGUES ahead of any other singers. We're so lucky that we got to experience both of them.

    Chris Hunter

    giancarlo garcia don’t forget Celine Dion.

  58. RJ DaMonarch

    This is better then the recorded version!

    Jeremiah Tray

    @Cristina S it's at the end.

    Joseph Perez

    Jeremiah Tray I think what she’s trying to say is that on the actual record, she does have the whistles, but not this ones, or at least not the runs that she’s doing on here!

    Jeremiah Tray

    @Joseph Perez I don't recall asking you.

    Joseph Perez

    Jeremiah Tray 🙄🤧🤧

    Jeremiah Tray

    @Joseph Perez Get off of my dick.

  59. Jay Bautista

    The most, it's her first husband. In this album in particular I have no idea.

  60. Honey Carey
