This song was written about Danny Jones. He meant a lot to me when I wrote it. He was my teenage crush so I guess I always pictured him ending up with me, as most girls do with their celebrity crush. Now I think I’ve grown out of this, and he’s proposed to Miss Georgia Horsley (a Miss England) and I could not be happier for him. I guess it was at uni when I finally stopped my obsession. At home I have an awesome big copy of the picture that 'One Thing' was 'supposedly' written about (if you haven't see it check it out here: http://stephcarfrae.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/one-thing.html) I guess by my eighteenth it had gotten a little silly in my mind to hold onto fantasies and the next few years while I met them consecutively, I kind of grasped that Danny was beautiful (to say the least) but I didn't/couldn't really connect with him. And I know now that I deserve a guy I can really connect with and not one that just looks good in photos.
Anyway here’s the lyric and I hope you enjoy:
You think the world of your latest love
But I’ve seen men in her stride get confused and used
I’m just telling you you might wanna back off
Cos if not it may happen to you too
I know you deserve much better
That’s why she’s scarlet letter
Cos you are so nice
I can’t bear to see you frozen like ice
She comes down like lightning
In a bad storm
The air is tightening
Cos you really think she’s your one
I’ll be on the sidelines
Encouraging you on
Till that special moment comes
And you find your one
How could you not see it’s been me for so long?
I role played and pretended that I was just a friend
I knew from the very first day I saw your face
That you were my light gonna have to win this fight
But right now you’re happy in love
I don’t mind waiting around
Cos you are so perfect
Make every minute of this life worth it
And I don’t know if you’ll ever see
My plead yes it’s me
So don’t let her drag you down too far
Even if she does you’re still my shining star
