Blondie lyrics : "Background Melody (The Only One)"

I know what I'm made of
By what's inside of me
Maybe science, maybe giants

Maybe just a mystery
Maybe the mother of invention
Is really intensity

And baby when they made you
I was the background melody
A partner to the feeling

Now you're a part of me

So be the only one who cares

The only one who dares
The only one who sees
The only one who dreams

Be the only one who tries
The only one who cries
Be the only one for me, for me


Don't think I'm fantasizing
I didn't make it up

Lots of people tell me things
Things about their love
How the music that was playing low

How they made you in the afterglow
I didn't see 'em do the body rock
I didn't feel the after shocks

But baby when they made you
I was the background melody


So be the only one who cares
The only one who dares
The only one to dance

The one who takes a chance
Be the only one who's real
The only one who feels

Be the only one who loves

You may think I'm egocentric

But I'm only centered some of the time
I want you to remember
I wanna be the tune you can't get out of your mind


I wasn't there to see the pressure drop
I didn't do the momma and pop

Baby when they made you I was the background melody
Was it the lady or the tiger
Who was the bottom who was the top

Oh baby when they made you I was the background melody

So be the only one who cares

The only one who dares
The only one who sees
The only one who dreams

Be the only one who tries
The only one who cries
Be the only one for me, for me
