Lyrics of Im Not The Only One by Sam Smith


You and me, we made a vow

For better or for worse

I can't believe you let me down

But the proof's in the way it hurts

 

For months on end I've had my doubts

Denying every tear

I wish this would be over now

But I know that I still need you here

 

You say I'm crazy

'Cause you don't think I know what you've done

But when you call me baby

I know I'm not the only one

 

You've been so unavailable

Now sadly I know why

Your heart is unobtainable

Even though Lord knows you kept mine

 

You say I'm crazy

'Cause you don't think I know what you've done

But when you call me baby

I know I'm not the only one

 

I have loved you for many years

Maybe I am just not enough

You've made me realize my deepest fear

By lying and tearing us up

 

You say I'm crazy

'Cause you don't think I know what you've done

But when you call me baby

I know I'm not the only one

 

You say I'm crazy

'Cause you don't think I know what you've done

But when you call me baby

I know I'm not the only one

 

I know I'm not the only one

I know I'm not the only one

And I know

And I know

And I know

And I know

And I know

And I don't know

I know I'm not the only one
