arithmetic lyrics – brooke fraser

i’ve been staring at the sky tonight
marvelling and p*ssing time
wondering what to do with daylight
until i can make you mine
you are the one i want, you are the one i want

i’ve been thinking of changing my mind
it never stays the same for long
but of all the things i know for sure
you’re the only certain one
you are the one i want, you are the one i want

i’ve been counting up all my wrongs
one sorry for each star
see i’d apologise my way to you
if the heavens stretched that far
you are the one i want, you are the one i want

[chorus]
i won’t find what i am looking for
if i only “see” by keeping score
‘cos i know now you are so much more than arithmetic

‘cos if i add, if i subtract
if i give it all, try to take some back
i’ve forgotten the freedom that comes from the fact
that you are the sum
so you are the one
i want

when the years are showing on my face
and my strongest days are gone
when my heart and flesh depart this place
from a life that sung your song

you’ll still be the one i want

you’ll still be the one i want

you’ll still be the one i want

you’ll still be the one i want
