ONE – the best thing I ever did

NEW SONG RELEASE!

ONE  by Kenny Schick

 

As I wander through the cemetery here in Tennessee
my feet on top of footsteps of ghosts who walked here before me
Despite different times and different sights, different lovers and different fights
God knows the struggle was still the same, regret attached to different names

but I blamed you
for what i’d failed to do

stray off course to find a love, one that fits just like a glove
and overnight, the path is gone, tossed the map cuz it felt wrong,
still the same since the dawn of time, the poison bite that killed devine
the need for 2 to become one, the struggle of the moon to kiss the sun

I blamed you
for what I’d failed to do
The worst thing I’ve ever done
Is to make you feel that we were one
When in secret, I always kept a piece for me

I led you down a dark country road
with the burden to shoulder my heavy load
(and a hope that your love might set me free)
and undying faith that you could set me free

and maybe we’d become
that pair that move as one

but not quite yet

you turned your world upside down, tried to wear a smile to replace a frown
wandering circles in the same unending maze
i seemed to miss your strength of heart, i’d almost tear your soul apart
still you’d be there to hold me in my final days

still I blamed you
for what I’d failed to do

The worst thing I’ve ever done
Is to make you feel that we were one
When in secret, I always kept a piece for me

I led you down a dark country road
with the burden to shoulder my heavy load
(and a hope that your love might set me free)
and undying faith that you could set me free

and maybe we’d become
that pair that move as one

but not quite yet

i thought every word i said was true, ’til i heard them reflected back off you
and what I always thought was solid ground was a hollow chamber full of sound
the sound a song that pulled you in to a game of chance you’d finally win
but as you’d make your final play, the song would move a different way

CH

the best thing, I’ve ever done
is to make you feel that we are one
and give you, every piece of me

hold your hand down this country road
and help you lift our heavy load
and finally see that you’ve helped set me free

and maybe we’ve become
that pair that moves as one
