lyrics

There's a billion songs since time began
But they’re gone where you can’t use them
All the melodies once known to man
it’s not like you get to choose them
You sing them and then you lose them

There’s a billion girls for you to love
But far fewer ways to meet them
And in all of the girls you’re thinking of
Sailing around the sun
Stumbling toward your only one
Now, how do you know…

The only song on earth worth singing
Only girl on earth worth loving
You’ve no choice
But raise your voice
To sing it all day long

The only song on earth worth singing
Only life on earth worth living
Till one day
It fades away
You’ll sing it loud and strong
Like it’s the only song

You heard the record on the radio
Pulled your ride off to the side of the road
Played the single till the needle broke
You could never get enough

When you stood in line to see the show
She was sending out a secret code
It was obvious before you spoke
That you’d never get enough
No, you’ll never get enough

There’s a billion worlds from one Big Bang
You have just your song to teach them
But those multi-verses that you sang
Will redshift and never reach them
No matter how loud you preach them

There’s a billion lives inside your life
And in every squirt of semen
It’s a random roulette and risk is rife
But out of the gate you run
Hurtling toward the only ever one
Now, how does it go?

The only song on earth worth singing
Only girl on earth worth loving
You’ve no choice
But raise your voice
To sing it all day long

The only song on earth worth singing
Only life on earth worth living
Till one day
It fades away
You’ll sing it loud and strong
‘Cause it’s the only song
‘Cause it’s your only song
