The Only One
(Riff Regan)

Last night I realised that
You’re not the girl
I thought you were
Last night you took me for a ride

Last night I gave up everything
That I was searching for
Last night I wasn’t satisfied

I heard on the radio phone
You’d not spent the night alone
You’d been out on a joyride
With a couple of boys from the east side
And the guilty one not to come
Must have been the only one

The only one, the only one
The only one, the only one

If I had the patience and the will
I’m sure I’d let it ride
But a decision must be made
I phoned up Nancy half past two
She said you would be late
Something about a lucky guy

I heard on the seven o’clock
They’d found your body down by the dock
And they’d interviewed the guy
Who found the bombers down by the quay side
He was playing dumb
Must have been the only one

The only one, the only one
The only one, the only one

Last night you took me just as far
As you could take me down
Last night you really pushed your luck
Last night you must have been
The only girl around in town
Who didn’t know her time was up

They’ve got a kid down at the jail
They’re not allowing him any bail
They think they’ve got the guy
But you know something and so do I
Now I’m on the run
I must have been the only one

The only one, the only one
The only one, the only one
