The One

Originally intended to be the second single from Mariah's "Charmbracelet" album, remixes were commissioned and a music video began shooting in Japan. "The One" was never released commercially and the music video footage was later used for "Boy (I Need You)".

See I'm going through a situation
That I can't help
Wanna get a little closer
But I promised myself
That I would never
Give my heart
Away again
Oo oo babe
I know it's hard
Butcha gotta understand it
The truth is
All the hurt and the pain
And the s*@t that you get
When you have it
Ain't worth it
I've been there so many times
I should know better but I
Can't stop what I feel
When you're next to me
I really think I

Finally found somebody
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
Cause I know that you're the one

Finally found somebody
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
Cause I know that you're the one
(baby you're the one)

See the problem with relationships
In general
Is that it's always a game
In the beginning they'll do
Anything to have you
And once they do
It's never the same
And I, know everyone out there
Can relate
So the question is
One: do I really wanna trust this feeling
Two: do I wanna let it pass me by
Three: do you think it's only superficial
Four: could it actually be different this time
Someone to love me
Someone to be my everything
Maybe I've stumbled upon

Finally found somebody
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
Cause I know that you're the one

Oh baby
Sweet darling

Finally found somebody
That could be the one
But I promised myself
That I wouldn't give in to love
And I'm scared
And I'm nervous
Don't wanna be hurt anymore
This is bad
Cause I know that you're the one

I'm going through a situation that I can't help
Wanna get a little closer but I promised myself
That I would never give my heart away again, baby
Baby, baby, baby
See, I know it's hard but you gotta understand it
The truth is all the hurt and the pain
And the shit that you get when you have it
Ain't worth it
I've been there so many times

Jermaine Dupri / Mariah:
Now how you're gonna tell me that I'm not the one
Baby I need to be for sure before I give you my love
But you'll never know until you give me a chance
But there's a lot of things about me I don't you understand
See, I've been cheated on (Baby I have too)
And I've been treated wrong (I know what you've been through)
See I've been there, done that back again
And all I'm looking for is my special friend
But I've been lied to and cried through some cold, lonely nights
I've been played and betrayed and this fake shit ain't right
Tell me what you wanna do
Baby I'm just so confused
Cause this time it might be true that baby you're the one

Bone Crusher:
It's just me and you, baby
You're so sexy and you're driving me crazy
You smell so good, I wish you would
Meet me in the streets, we can tour the hood
And I'll show you all this heaven sent loving is good
And the feeling loving the greatest wood
If it's love that you're looking for, baby it's me
The vainglorious man BC
Because I love to love you baby
And miss Mariah love me baby
It's me and you against the world
I'll protect you baby girl
This connection's made in heaven
Everyday I count my blessings
It's never enough, I need second helpers
Come make me some of this heaven senders
Cause I'm here for you baby
