You're The One

ŠPaul Simon, released on You're the One, 2000

.

May twelve angels guard you

While you sleep

Maybe that's a waste of angels I don't know

I'd do anything to keep you safe

From the danger that surrounds us

.

Little by little

Bit by bit

Little bit by little bit

Now you got it that's it

What're you thinking?

Things'll go sour?

Take its temperature every hour

Nervous when you own it

Nervous when it's gone

What do you think has been going on

For so long?

.

[Bridge:]

You are the air

Inside my chest

.

[Chorus:]

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

.

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

You're the one

.

But when I hear it from the other side

It's a completely different song

I'm the one who made you cry

And I'm the one who's wrong

In my dream you spoke to me

And you said

.

[Chorus:]

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

You're the one

.

[Verse:]

Nature gives us shapeless shapes

Clouds and waves and flame

But human expectation

Is that love remains the same

And when it doesn't

We point our fingers

And blame blame blame

.

[Chorus:]

You're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

And I'm the one

I broke your heart

I made you cry

And you're the one

You broke my heart

You made me cry

We're the ones
