The Only One

When I heard of this song the first time, I thought of him. But that was way too long ago, before you came into my life. Now, I am thinking of the present, and of the beautiful future I am about to face because of you, my dearest. Is it wrong to think of that–the future? I have always been telling you that I am traumatized by various events, and I know that you notice the fear behind the smiles I show. Though, music seems to calm me down; to say everything is all right… because you are there. Everything will be fine.

I was alone when you came running. I was a stranger in the dark.
You found a light in me and you lit up my heart.

And yes. I remember those days when I thought I could not move on. I remember a time when I was crying over the matter. I knew I had no feelings for him, but the feeling of being rejected was just terrifying. That was why when I knew I had this strange sensation for you going inside of me, I wrote a blog entitled “Palinphilophobia” and the note where I wrote the lyrics of the chorus of “Rebound”.

“Sana’y, hindi na lang, pinilit pa, wala ring patutunguhan kahit sabihin ko pang mahal kita.” (I wish I never persisted. There’s no reason to continue even if I told you I love you.)

There was a time when I was broken. There was a piece of me with you.
You put me back together and now I’m brand new.
Well I’ve been trying to find the words to say that i’d be lost without you, I’d be lost without you.

Then suddenly you came. You conducted therapies to me. Though you didn’t know how it felt when you said that I was pretty; I had no idea you liked me.

‘Coz you’re the only one that gets me, and you’re the only one that keeps me safe.
When I’m far from sleep and lonely, you’re the only one that holds me.
When I’m out there chasing my dreams, and I’ve got you by my side
I can put this world behind me ‘coz you’re the only one that I need tonight.

Every time I hear this part, I felt like crying. The memories where you would keep me in your arms was the scene in my mind. Indeed, it was so beautiful.

If I forget to say I love you, if I get lost along the way,
You’ll be the one guiding me back everyday

Yes, I know I already told  you how much I love you. Sometimes when I stare at the nothingness of space, you would always ask me why, and I would just answer ‘nothing’, you would suddenly surprise me the warmth of your embrace. At times I just want to cry whenever I hear your heartbeat when I lie down upon your chest. You don’t know how nice it feels when your arms surround me like as if you were telling me to calm down and that no once could hurt me.

I know the road hasn’t been easy. I know our faith will pull us through.
The promise we made through thick and thin still holds true.

Even though many would think our relationship moved so fast; why, they do not know how long we waited for this moment.

And I’ve been trying to find the words to say..
‘Coz you’re the only one that gets me, and you’re the only one that keeps me safe
When I’m far from sleep and lonely, you’re the only one that holds me.
When I’m out there chasing my dreams, and I’ve got you by my side
I can put this world behind me ‘coz you’re the only one that I need tonight.
It doesn’t matter how far away we go
In your arms is the place that I call home, the place that I call home.

Definitely. You know how much that line is true.

‘Coz you’re the only one that gets me, and you’re the only one that keeps me safe
When I’m far from sleep and lonely, you’re the only one that holds me
When I’m out there chasing my dreams, and I’ve got you by my side
I can put this world behind me ‘cuz you’re the only one… the only one…
‘Coz you’re the only one that gets me, and you’re the only one that keeps me safe
When I’m far from sleep and lonely, you’re the only one that holds me
When I’m out there chasing my dreams, and I’ve got you by my side
I can put this world behind me ‘Coz you’re the only one that I need tonight.

Never mind the past, I am already moved on. It’s the pain that I’m always pertaining to when I’m blogging, and I’m too happy now to reminisce how hurtful my past was. Remember how you told me that I was beautiful? That one day, there would be a person who would stay behind my back to protect me? That one day, I’d be happy?

Every time I write novels, you are the leading man that comes inside my head. I know how much happy you are that you found me, and so am I. I thought I would no longer find someone like you–a reason why I was so attached to you easily. As a matter of fact, I love loving you.
