Gallant (갈란트) – Only One [Lyrics]

[MV Teaser]

[Official MV]

BoA’s 20th Debut Anniversary Project! ‘Only One’ is from BoA’s 7th album released in 2012.

I think Gallant did a good job in this english remake. Although I think the vocabulary choices are ‘too heavy’ for the lovely melody,  it’s interesting to hear it in different version. Fyi, Only One is the first song BoA wrote since debut. I still remember she said this song wasn’t meant to be the title song (in a program, I forgot which one). She wrote this thinking about her first love? or her ex? and it was supposed to be a b-side track. But when she presented the song to Lee Soo Man, he suggested to make it as title song! That’s how it became a main track, and loved by many up until now 🙂

As it’s all slipping away
from me you’re the only one
in an unforeseen reality
you’re the only one
am I headed for catastrophe
or the morning sun
cuz I know you’re already gone
and you’re the only one only one

it’s only gotten colder
in the room we said
a flame would always burn
it’s been weighing heavy
on your conscience
and your shoulders
but you’re silent
mortified by that point
of no return (no return)

(why delay the satisfaction baby?
you know what you want)
you’ve been waking up
in purgatory 7 weeks
too long
(instead of dealing with the
cause you just keep
hiding every symptom)
and it’s sad to see
you suffer slow
so I’ll let you go

As it’s all slipping away
from me
you’re the only one
in an unforeseen reality
you’re the only one
am I headed for catastrophe
or the morning sun
cuz I know you’re already gone
and you’re the only one only one

wouldn’t be real
if it weren’t painful (painful)
or a height
if it weren’t destined
for a crash
though we’ve never been
here before
consider it (alchemy)
alchemy
to take two separate roads
turn it to gold
and back again
so easily (baby)

(though it’s hard
to put a finger on it
hard to comprehend)
you don’t owe
no one an explanation
to be alone again
(trust your logic over altruism
feelings over virtue)
and you’ll find
that perfect situation
the way I met you

As it’s all slipping away
from me
you’re the only one
in an unforeseen reality
you’re the only one
(you’re the only one)
am I headed for catastrophe
or the morning sun
cuz I know you’re already gone
and you’re the only one only one

As it’s all slipping away
from me
you’re the only one
(I’ll stop blaming myself)
in an unforeseen reality
you’re the only one
(and hand the keys to our destiny)
am I headed for catastrophe
or the morning sun
(baby you’re already gone)
cuz I know you’re already gone
and you’re the only one only one
