Song Meaning and Background of No One by Alicia Keys


Keys and Kerry Brothers Jr. wrote and produced the song, with DJ Dirty Harry contributing additional lyrics.


Keys told MTV News that the song, "is really talking about the way that in relationships, the way that so many things are around you all the time to try to distract you. And even though people may talk and say whatever they may want to say, but then no one can get in the way of this." Keys added that the song "just wrote itself".


"No One" was a commercial triumph, topping the US Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks in a row and reaching in the top ten in 18 other nations. With 3.08 billion listeners, it was the most-heard song on US radio and the third-most popular song of 2008 in the US. It was also the sixth-most popular song in the US during the 2000s.


Lyrics of No One by Alicia Keys


I just want you close

Where you can stay forever

You can be sure

That it will only get better

 

You and me together

Through the days and nights

I don't worry 'cause

Everything's gonna be alright

People keep talking they can say what they like

But all I know is everything's gonna be alright

 

No one, no one, no one

Can get in the way of what I'm feeling

No one, no one, no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you

Can get in the way of what I feel for you

 

When the rain is pouring down

And my heart is hurting

You will always be around

This I know for certain

 

You and me together

Through the days and nights

I don't worry 'cause

Everything's gonna be alright

People keep talking they can say what they like

But all I know is everything's gonna be alright

 

No one, no one, no one

Can get in the way of what I'm feeling

No one, no one, no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you, you, you

Can get in the way of what I feel

 

I know some people search the world

To find something like what we have

I know people will try, try to divide, something so real

So till the end of time I'm telling you there ain't no one

 

No one, no one

Can get in the way of what I'm feeling

No one, no one, no one

Can get in the way of what I feel for you

 

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh, oh, oh, ohh

Oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh, oh, oh, oh, ohh
