That's One

This life is the only one I've got
One chance to get it right or flop.
No one telling me what to do when I mess up.
Just me, to dust off when it's done.
With no one next to me, I'm just one
With one love, one prayer, one fun.
No stranger's going to steal my sun.
I've got my life and my love.
That's one.
No space greater than that between the sudden urge and common sense.
Once I figured it out, I haven't been the same since.
I figure either way, I won't let it get me stressed.
After all, my life is too
That's two.
No one can take this love from me.
No one can turn my potential into actuality.
No one can finally
Make my eyes open to see
The difference between
What is said and what you mean,
Except me.
That's three.
A breakthrough from the life that never was
Is finally making sense to me because
I know that this was given from above,
And without Him there's no point in looking up,
Because He saved me with His only son,
And showed me true unconditional love.
That's the one.
