"The One" is an unreleased song by Melanie Martinez. It was intended to be the fifth track on her acoustic extended play (EP), Take Me To The Moon, but the project was later scrapped.


Background

This song was written and recorded during Melanie's acoustic era, around the time she was dating Vinnie DiCarlo, so the song is likely about him.

Theme

This song is about someone that Melanie truly loves, and if they separate she has no idea what she'd do. She's happier when she's with him, and she wishes she'd known him her whole life.

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Follow the trails written on your hands
The starry night sky is where I'll stand
All of the fires written on our maps
You lifted this burden off my back

[Chorus]
These butterflies, they keep coming back
They're different, bright and better, in fact

[Bridge]
Take me to the moon and back, my friend
I wish I'd met you before 2010
Life's been fine, but now I'm safe and sound
Call me crazy but I know I've found
The one
The one
You're the one

[Verse 2]
Take a photo of my heart
It's clear that we don't spend our time apart
'Cause ninety-nine percent of it is you
And frankly, if you left, I don't know what I'd do

[Chorus]
These butterflies, they keep coming back
They're different, bright and better, in fact

[Bridge]
Take me to the moon and back, my friend
I wish I'd met you before 2010
Life's been fine, but now I'm safe and sound
Call me crazy but I know I've found
The one
The one
You're the one

[Bridge]
Take me to the moon and back, my friend
I wish I'd met you before 2010
Life's been fine, but now I'm safe and sound
Call me crazy but I know I've found
The one
The one
You're the one
