One ~ The Bee Gees



One (Dance Version) | The Bee Gees

I was inspired to write this post the other day when this song wouldn't stop playing in my head and I posted it on Facebook in celebration of my wedding week.  

The thought occurred to me that I am already feeling that we are one . . . but that piece of paper makes it official :)  Actually, we have the marriage license, it is just not notarized  . . . I guess that makes us "nearly one" by law.  

Isn't it strange how a single piece of paper makes a huge difference in status? Like a college diploma hung on the wall makes you more intelligent than one who doesn't have that diploma?  

Of course, it isn't the marriage license that makes two people "one" spiritually . . . "The taste of love is sweeter like honey on the vine, like the wind that feeds the fire, two souls become entwined."  Two souls become entwined . . . that is what "being one" means to me.

Someday is here for The Captain and me . . .







 Despite the success of the single "One" in the US (where it made the Top 10), the album only peaked at #68 there. In the UK, none of the singles from the album were hits and the album peaked at #29, but sold better in Germany and Switzerland where it made the Top 10.

The single comes from the album "One" . . . the Bee Gees' eighteenth studio album, released in 1989. 


One | The Bee Gees
Lyrics

Written by Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb

I feel my heartbeat,
when you run your fingers through my hair, oh yeah
I can tell you,
I can feel you by my side when you're not there, oh yeah
Just as my life fades to darkness
you you make me see the light.
Show me that my search is over
I pay the price, I pay the price.

Tell you someday, baby you and I should be one, one.
Do it always, brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun.

The taste of love is sweet, like honey on the vine,
like the wind that feeds the fire, two souls become entwined.
Someday baby you and I should be one, one.

VERSE 2:
So I'm standing on this corner
Tall enough to touch the New York sky, oh yeah
Love is so blind
I just cannot hear or see the world go by, oh yeah
Someone can love so completely
One kiss should break the seal.
Truth can be stranger than fiction
This love is real
This love is real.

Tell you someday Baby, you and I should be one, one.
Do it always, brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun.

BRIDGE:
Ah we are one, we are one.

VERSE 3:
I will follow
Count on me, I'll never let you down, oh yeah
My devotion
Loving like an ocean I would surely drown, oh yeah
You'll be my only possession
I'll be a slave to you
We hold the power together
Just me and you
Just me and you.

Tell you someday Baby, you and I should be one, one.
Do it always, brighter than the eye can see, we hide the sun.
Tell you someday Baby, you and I should be one, one.

I think somebody might
I go down on my knees
You see love can be blind
It's there under your fear
I know I must be strong
And go into the night
And see all that I want

[You know my life is in your hands,
and every breath you take is planned
and all this love goes on forever.]

Tell you someday Baby, you and I should be one, one.
Do it someday Baby, you and I should be one, one.
Do it someday Baby, you and I should be one, one....
