What made you write this song?

I was inspired to write this song for my best friend who later then became someone even more special than that to me

Describe the process/experience of creating this song from start to finish.

At first I was just really playing with the guitar, creating different tabs and all until I came up with a melody, and the beat and the lyrics just started to come in.

Lyrically, what inspires you? Do you do something or listen to someone to kick start your creativity?

What inspires me to write is the melancholy things that happen in my life. I mostly write sad songs and “The Only One” is practically the first out of two songs I wrote that aren’t exactly bringing out something that’s gloomy. Maybe I was just so overjoyed that time I wrote it and I couldn’t express it any other way.

Does songwriting come naturally to you? Who are your biggest influences?

Yes, it actually does. I think the biggest influence would be a famous songwriter named Grace Vanderwaal. She’s young and so talented and her lyrics are simple yet they bring out really deep meaning. I wanna be like her one day.

Listen to The Only One:

The Only One Lyrics

Everyday I think of the things we used to do

Never thought we’d end up thinking of us two

We never relaly had the chance to spend a lot of time together

I guess that’s just how it seems like

Pre-chorus:

So we started out as friends, ended up as bests

Then we thought about it for a while

Made a wrong turn, lost track, start over again and here we are

Chorus:

Every day I wake up with your voice inside my head

Every night I dream of the things I always thought you’d do

I don’t know how it started, I don’t know if it would end

As long as you’ll know

You’d always be the one, and the only one

II.

I guess every minute of the day I think of you

No turning back, no moving on, just keep going on with you

I’m never gonna stop unless you do

Though, whatever happens, know that I’ll be here for you
