Matthew West – One Song lyrics


[Intro]
Oh yeah-yeah-yeah
Oh yeah-yeah-yeah

[Verse 1]
Well I’ve written a bunch of these
Words, chords, melodies
I picked up my first guitar and I never looked back
Still I search for the perfect verse
Safe to say this ain’t my first
But just in case it’s my last

[Pre-Chorus]
I want you to know
This is how it would go

[Chorus]
If I only had one song, I would sing it for You
One last chance to let my words ring true
It’d be a hallelujah, it’d be a thank You, Lord
It’d be an amen, I’m made new
One song, I would sing it for You
Oh yeah-yeah-yeah, You
Oh yeah-yeah-yeah

[Verse 2]
I could use some King James words
The kind you only hear in church
Make it sound real good, I could impress a lot of people
But if I was down to my last breath
If I had one heartbeat left
I’d keep it short and simple

[Instrumental]
[Bridge]
I want You to know
This is how it would go
I’d just tell You “I love You”

[Chorus 2]
If I only had one song, I would sing it for you
One last chance to let my words ring true
It’d be a hallelujah, it’d be a thank You, Lord
It’d be an amen, I’m made new
One song
If I only had one song, I would sing it for you
One last chance, I want the last thing that I do
To be a hallelujah, be a thank You, Lord
Be an amen, I’m made new
One song, I would sing it for… Every song every line
Every word every rhyme
I sing it for you
I sing it for you
Every song every line
Every word every time
I sing it for you
Oh yeah-yeah-yeah
