I know what I'm made of, of what's inside of me
Maybe science, maybe giants, maybe just a mystery
Maybe the mother of invention is really intensity
And baby when they made you, I was the background melody
A partner to the feeling, now you're a part of me

So be the only one who cares, the only one who dares
The only one who sees the only one who dreams
Be the only one who tries, the only one who cries
Be the only one for me, for me

Don't think I'm fantasizing, I didn't make it up
Lots of people tell me things, things about their love
How the music that was playing low, how they made you in the afterglow
I didn't see 'em do the body rock, I didn't feel the after shocks
But baby when they made you, I was the background melody

So be the only one who cares, the only one who dares
The only one to dance, the one who takes a chance
Be the only one who's real, the only one who feels
Be the only one who loves

You may think I'm egocentric
But I'm only centered some of the time
I want you to remember
I wanna be the tune you can't get out of your mind

I wasn't there to see the pressure drop, I didn't do the momma and pop
Ooh baby when they made you, I was the background melody
Was it the lady or the tiger? Who was the bottom, who was the top?
Oh baby when they made you, I was the background melody

So be the only one who cares, the only one who dares
The only one who sees, the only one who dreams
Be the only one who tries, the only one who cries
Be the only one for me, for me
