Sam Smith Lyrics

I'm Not The Only One Lyrics
[Verse 1:]
You and me we made a vow
For better or for worse
I can't believe you let me down
But the proof's in the way it hurts
For months on end I've had my doubts
Denying every tear
I wish this would be over now
But I know that I still need you here

[Chorus:]
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

[Verse 2:]
You've been so unavailable
Now sadly I know why
Your heart is unobtainable
Even though Lord knows you have mine.

[Chorus:]
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

[Bridge:]
I have loved you for many years
Maybe I am just not enough
You've made me realized my deepest fear
By lying and tearing us up

[Chorus:]
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

[Chorus:]
You say I'm crazy
'Cause you don't think I know what you've done
But when you call me baby
I know I'm not the only one

[Outro:]
I know I'm not the only one
I know I'm not the only one
And I know... [x6]
Know...
I know I'm not the only one

I'm Not The Only One Info:

• Sam explained: "It's about a marriage that I've been an observer of. I put myself into the woman's shoes."

"The person I wrote it with, we both knew them and we just vibed off each other. We both had really strong opinions on what the woman was doing. It's quite a complex song. When you listen to it you think it's just bashing a guy for cheating, but it's not, it actually talks more about how the woman's a mug. She knows she's not the only one, but she's never going to leave. I think that's wrong."

• He also said: "I wanted to make a Norah Jones-esque record with a heavier beat. This is the same chord pattern again and again. It's complex in its simplicity."
