One For The One For Me
written by John Hiatt

Some women where passion like a most recent fashion
Some women want money for love
Some live on wishes and some do the dishes
And you are the woman that I'm thinking of

So it's one for the one for me
One for the stars up above
One for the night and one for the light
And one for the woman who gives me her love

My life is a curtain - the next scene's uncertain
The actor is lost in his role
The lady is waiting - the man hesitating
And lovers are children afraid to grow old


Ashes to ashes the emptiness crashes
The dreamer wakes up in the dream
Your journey of sorrow runs off with tomorrow
And rainbows are cluttered with things as they seem
