You Are The Only One - lyrics project





You Are The Only One - demo music and vocalisations by Freddie Mercury
 


The objective is to compose lyrical content to replace vocalisations in the demo recorded version. Words in bold denote original and audible lyrical draft. Words not in bold denote Author’s contribution.

The song has a dual purpose in mind and that is, as an affirmation of affection and plea for forgiveness. 
Being a demo recording, it was never commercially released. …………………………………………………………………………………….....................

You stood by my side
Despite my foolish pride
I'm so sorry
My head in the clouds
Thought it would clear all my doubts
How I was proven wrong!
You are the only one
You are the only one

My virtue and vice
Only our love can be
So take me away from it all


You are the only one
You are the only one 
My virtue and vice
Only our love can be
So take us away from it all


 

I’ve caused you much grief (option: to be sung or spoken)
Callousness made you weep (option: to be sung or spoken)

I'm so sorry, I'm so sorry
My virtue and vice
Loyalty I never had to ask for twice
To you I now belong!
You are the only one
You are the only one
My virtue and vice
Only our love can be
So take us away from it all!

Dominae Primus thanks the late Freddie Mercury for the opportunity to be creative.
