Only You Lyrics

Only you
can make this world seem right

Only you
can make the darkness bright

Only you
and you alone
can thrill me like you do
and fill my heart with love
for only you

Only you
can make this change in me,
for it's true,
you are my destiny

When you hold my hand,
I understand
the magic that you do

You're my dream come true,
my one and only you

Only you can make this change in me,
for it's true, you are my destiny
When you hold my hand,
I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true,
my one and only you

One and only you

The PlattersThis is one of those songs that would be considered to be before my time, but I've always loved it. After all, true love can only be for that one special person. That one that makes you feel like no other person can. You know what I'm talkin' about. That is if you are a lover… and of course I already know you're a lover, or you wouldn't be on a site for Music "Lovers".

Here are a few facts to go along with the video.
