Appearances

Overview

"No Other One" was originally written in July of 1994. The song is in 3/4 timing. An early version of the song begins with the line, "My girl's on fire," instead of, "My girl's a liar."

Later, in 1995, the song was briefly considered for the abandoned Songs from the Black Hole album concept. In the story's second draft, the character Jonas sings about realizing that Maria is the one he wants after she gives birth to his daughter. The song does not appear on Track List 2.

Lyrics

No-Other-One-lyrics.jpg

My girl's a liar
But I'll stand beside her
She's all I've got
And I don't wanna be alone
My girl don't see me
When she's with my friends
She's all I've got
And I don't wanna be alone

No there is no other one
No there is no other one
I can't have any other one
Though I would
Now I never could with one

All of the drugs she does
Scare me real good
She's got a tattoo
And two pet snakes
Nobody knows me like her
Nobody knows her like me
We're all we've got and we don't wanna be alone.

No there is no other one
No there is no other one
I can't have any other one
Though I would
Now I never could with one

No there is no other one
No there is no other one
I won't have any other one
Though I would
Now I never could with one
