The One

With all albums, there's an expectation that it'll contain at least one ballad. For us, this is 'the one'. It originally started out as a re-boot of a ballad we wrote with the original band but by the time we eliminated the cheesy lines and the depressing undertones, it ended up being a completely different and new song. The challenge for was to write a ballad that didn't bring the mood down like a lot of ballads tend to do.

What we did instead is to try and capture an emotion that is normally very short lived in a twilight moment. It's that transitional time when you first meet someone who makes such an impression on you, you tell yourself, "If this person gave me a chance, I'd do anything for them".

With that state of instability, comes a huge mix of emotions that normally accompany uncertainty and anxiety. Within that process something insides us ignites our ability to have hope and faith.

From a musical perspective, the cello sets a beautiful sombre tone. When Manny's bass lines kick in, they not only carry the song, but create a nice subliminal layer of emotion.

 

 

LYRICS

Do you cry yourself to sleep
when there's no sign of hope
Do you call out in your dreams
that turns into a whisper
Do you hold the pieces
of your broken fragile heart
And scream out for the falling tears
that no one'll ever see

Let me be the one to wipe the tears away
When the night wind blows
my heart will keep you warm until the day
Let me be the one to stand by your side
To keep you safe throughout the night
Let me be the one

Do you look out through the rain
to see nobody there
Do you go outside to find not even a whisper
Do you hold out hope that somehow
Someone still might make it through
Although you see no signs of life
as you stare outside your window

Let me be the one to wipe the tears away
When the night wind blows
my heart will keep you warm until the day
Let me be the one to stand by your side
To keep you safe throughout the night
Let me be the one
