the one lyrics – lucky dube

it started like a joke
i never thought it would come to this
today i’m walking in the bushes, like a criminal
today i’m walking so slow, like a predator
just to get a glimpse of you
as you play in the play ground.
your mother spoke to the lawyers
told them i was not good around you
the lawyers spoke to the judges
told the i was not good around you
the judges gave your mother a letter
that is keeping me away from you
don’t worry, you are never far from me
inside my heart, i keep a little box
it is the box of memories i created about you

[chorus:]
you are the one, you are the one.

whenever i miss you bad,
i walk around the park
looking at little boys and girls
they remind me of you
there’s a lot of stories i’d like to share with you
there’s a lot of games, i’d like to play with you
tears come down my face
when i think about what happened

the lawyer spoke to the judges
told them i was not good around you
the judges gave your mother a letter,
that is keeping me away from you.
don’t worry, you are never far from me.
inside my heart i keep a little box,
it is a box of memories i created about you.

[chorus: till fade]
you are the one, you are the one.
