Daniel Bedingfield, "If You're Not The One"

수록앨범 : Gotta Get Thru This (2002)

 

언제부턴가 랩과 힙합등 흑인음악이 점령해 버린 빌보드를 떠나 브릿팝이 내 메인스트림으로 자리잡는 듯 하다.
이 곡 역시 순위 떨어지기에 바쁜 UK차트에서 꽤나 오래 버티고 있기에 들어봤는데...
들으면 들을수록, 노래에 휘말려 완전히 사로잡히는 것이었다. 들었을 때 '아, 이 노래다'란 느낌이 오는 그런 경험.
대니얼 베딩필드는 자기 방에서 데뷔앨범을 만들었...다. 믿기 어렵지만, 사실이다. -_-;
실력을 갖춰야 운도 따르는 법. (하지만 역시 브릿팝은 우리나라에서 힘을 못 쓰는 게 현실인지라... ㅡㅜ)

If You're Not The One

Music by Daniel Bedingfield
Lyrics by Daniel Bedingfield


If you're not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you're not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all?

I never know what the future brings but I know you're here with me now
We'll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with

  Chorus
I don't wanna run away but I can't take it, I don't understand
If I'm not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don't need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don't need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you're not for me then why does this distance name my life?
If you're not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don't know why you're so far away but I know that this much is true
We'll make it through and I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you're the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

  Chorus

'Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
'Cause I love you, whether it's wrong or right
And though I can't be with you tonight
You know my heart is by your side

  Chorus
