Original Song: Can I Be The One?

Month 93 of the song-a-month project, – yep, inching ever closer to the century mark! I could pretty much say exactly what I did last month: another month scraping in by the skin of my teeth and all my fault as Can I Be The One? was actually written and the bare bones recorded in the first week of the month! In fact, I’m leaving it pretty much as it was then simply because I’ve run out of time to really craft it. That said, I really like the tune and the tongue-in-cheek lyrics around the world of online dating!

CAN I BE THE ONE?

(I was) Looking for love so I went online
Thought I’d try and save some time
Lots of dates, lots of wine, but there was no real shine
Then I saw you, we matched, a good sign

First date I said what a great smile
You said I looked like the pic on my profile
Lots of talk, I liked your style, you even seemed a bit tactile,
I wondered could we end up walking down the aisle?

(Chorus)
Never thought it be so quick, took a chance with just one click
Can I be the one you pick, the one with whom you’ll stick
Can I be the one?
Can I be the only one?
Can I be the one?
Can I be the only one?

I said, you’re much more than meets the eye
Yes, that cliche really does apply
I don’t want to leave this date and say goodbye
Just in case you’ve second thoughts and you fly

(Chorus)
Can I be all that you want, the one you want to stay
Can I be the one you love, who is there every day
Can I be the one
Can I be the only one
Can I be enough for you, enough to get you off the app?
Can I be the only one among all the other guys on tap?
Can I be the one
Can I be the only one
Can I be the one
Can I be the only one

(Bridge)
So exhilarated in what I’ve found
Every sight, every smell, every sound
Can’t believe it is so profound
I hope I’m not on shaky ground

(Chorus)
And now you say you have to go, best date I’ve ever had
I wonder if I proposed whether you would think I’m mad
Can I be the one?
Can I be the only one?
Can I be enough for you, enough to get you off the app?
Can I be the only one among all the other guys on tap?
Can I be the one?
Can I be the only one?
Can I be the one?
Can I be the only one?

About the original songs
In January 2012 I commenced a goal of trying to write and record at least one song from scratch each month – sometimes it comes easily, sometimes it’s a real challenge, but I love the discipline it creates. I managed to complete the year, but it was so much fun that I’ve decided to keep it rolling for as long as I can.
