Well....

(Are we recording?)
Enlightening charmer sent from where
A Casanova, lovely glare
And I was chosen
I was there

The wells get deeper
More unfolds
And at the bottom
There she goes
But wells are endless
I find more...

[Bridge]
Flowers, candy, flirty late nights, on the speed dial
That was you two
Dinner, movies, sweetheart, kisses,
He don't dance but tango with two
I find you plus me divided me from him
But I discovered
Many more, and again, and again...

(chorus)
And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies
And he don't know
How he's stole many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
(I would've been the one)

I held the title
Wore the crown
I was the trophy
While you ducked down
And she was cool with just foolin' around
(Yes she was, Yes she was) Yes she was
Now number four was there to ride
And five was crazy
His wild child
And when we're rocky
He calls number nine...

[Bridge]
Flowers, candy, flirty late nights, on the speed dial
That was you two
Dinner, movies, sweetheart, kisses,
He don't dance but tango with two
I find you plus me divided me from him
But I discovered
Many more, and more, and again...

(chorus)
And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies
And he don't know
How he's steals many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
(I would've been the one)

I was the one,
Yes, I was the one
And yes, that was my name
Inked up on his arm
And if he loved me that much and still did me wrong
I'm feeling sorry for you for holding on
I was the one,
Yes, I was the one
Keyword is was, yes I was the one
I figured out he was empty on my own
He had to find the answer in something not someone

(chorus)
And you don't know
You fill many spaces
And she don't know
She's one of many lies
And he don't know
He's stole many places
And we all know
We can't fix him if we tried
(I would've been the one)
