One By One Lyrics Rationale


God, I’ve been lonely, out of my mind
Friends tried to console me saying
“Take it one single day at a time”
I miss your thunder and I cannot lie
You always told me you never take back goodbyes

But now I’m living at the bottom (bottom)
And I don’t know how I’m surviving, Lord (Lord)
See, you and I, we were titans
And since we fell I’ve been permanently wavy
Oh my God, I can’t believe it
You had grounds and every reason to let go
Now I’m on my own

One by one, on my ones
Sip another rum for you, baby
‘Cause I know I done wrong, now you’re gone
Every single time you forgave me you said
“Boy, if you keep hurting me
One day I’ll give up and leave your life
And live my life”
Ain’t no retribution for what I’ve lost
Whoa (whoa)
Ain’t no retribution

Nobody knows me the way that you tried
And old excuses finally took a toll on your mind
I’ve been missing your thunder
I’ve been missing your shine
You always told me you never take back goodbyes (sorry)

One by one, on my ones
Sip another rum for you, baby
‘Cause I know I done wrong, now you’re gone
Every single time you forgave me you said
“Boy, if you keep hurting me
One day I’ll give up and leave your life
And live my life”
Ain’t no retribution for what I’ve lost

Ain’t no question about it
Girl, your love is incredible
Ain’t no living without it
Know you give me that everglow
With every bone in my body
I hope you know that I’m sorry
I’ve been praying to Scotty
Beam me back to that everglow

One by one, on my ones
Sip another rum for you, baby
‘Cause I know I done wrong, now you’re gone
Every single time you forgave me you said
“Boy, if you keep hurting me
One day I’ll give up and leave your life
And live my life”
Ain’t no retribution for what I’ve lost

One by one, on my ones
Ain’t no resolution, no “Che sarĂ ”
I know I done wrong (whoa), now you’re gone
Ain’t no retribution for what I’ve lost
One by one, on my ones
Ain’t no retribution, no “Che sarĂ ”
Know I done wrong (whoa), now you’re gone
Ain’t no retribution for what I’ve lost
