You're The One Lyrics

by Paul Simon

May twelve angels guard you while you sleep
Maybe that's a waste of angels, I don't know
I'd do anything to keep you safe
From the danger that surrounds us

Little by little, bit by bit
Little bit by little bit
Now you got it, that's it

What're you thinking things'll go sour?
Take its temperature every hour
Nervous when you own it, nervous when it's gone
What do you think has been going on for so long?

You are the air
Inside my chest

You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one

But when I hear it from the other side
It's a completely different song
I'm the one who made you cry and I'm the one who's wrong
And in my dream you spoke to me and you said, you said

You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
You're the one

Nature gives us shapeless shapes, clouds and waves and flame
But human expectation is that love remains the same
And when it doesn't
We point our fingers and blame, blame, blame

You're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
And I'm the one
I broke your heart, I made you cry
And you're the one
You broke my heart, you made me cry
And we're the ones
