Carole King

Carole King - Just One Thing

rate me

Holding it together with barely any motion

Like so many motes of dust

My dreams keep stirring in me

But all I see are

Rivers of violence

Running red on the streets below me

While passionate strangers whisper desire

All I know is I'm on fire

I need just one thing I can believe in

Oh, just one thing

Just one thing I can believe in

Hiding in the shadows

I want to stand in the light

Trust is unknown to me

I've been betrayed by the night so long

I can never belong to anyone any more

Why does everybody think they know me

I go through the motions, playing my role

Nobody knows what's deep in my soul

I need just one thing I can believe in

Give me just one thing

Oh, just one thing I can believe in

Love let me down

I wanted to believe that love was the one thing

But every time I turned around, love let me down

In my imagination

I come out of the darkness

The moon in my fantasy smiles down on me

I am a child running wild and free

But then the fight for survival

Takes me out of my illusion

And I'm back in the emptiness, fear and defeat

Trapped in a rhythm I don't want to repeat

The taste of freedom is so close and sweet

I've just gotta find a way off this dead-end street

I need just one thing I can believe in

I gotta find one thing

Just one thing I can believe in

I need one thing I can believe in

Let me find one thing

Gotta find one thing

Just one thing I can believe in
