ALWAYS THE ONE

Listen to ‘Always The One’

Lyrics and Music by Jeff Pike

When I was young I took my time.
I was never clinging to a vine.
Looking for what there was to see.
Hiding down the road for me.

I used to look at the years gone past
As a fading dream never meant to last.
Heartaches don’t come like they used to do
Is it growing up that does this to you and me?
Did it take too long to see? That..

You were always the one that was in my heart
When I lost my way these past few years.
You were always the one and I’ve been glad it’s you.
You’re still the same old friend that I once knew.

Years of chasing life. Living for the day
I had taken my heart and locked it away.
Waiting for the day when I would have to stand.
Reach out and take life by the hand.

And then I wondered around and I finally found
I was living my life all alone.
Secluded in my dream I found reality.
Found I was chasing my dream on my own

Maybe it was the times.
Searching for peace of mind
Wondering what I would do
Now that me and you had gone separate ways.

When I was young I took my time.
I was never clinging to a vine.
Looking for what there was to see.
Hiding down the road for me.

Oh, and when at last I saw our face.
And I saw that the years had been good to you.
But for me, did it take too long to see?

CHORUS

You were always the one that was in my heart
When I lost my way these past few years.
You were always the one standing in my way
When youth was in my life and led me astray.

I’m glad you’re here today
