Adam Lambert - One -American Idol Performance- (High Quality)


Adam Lambert - One !!


Is it getting better or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You got someone to blame

You say one love, one life
It's one need in the night
One love, you get to share it
It'll leave you baby if you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
You want me to go without

Well, it's too late tonight to drag the past out into the light
We're one but we're not the same
We gotta carry each other, carry each other

Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head?

Did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it's all that I got
We're one but we're not the same
We hurt each other then we do it again

You say love is a temple, love is a higher law
Love is a temple, love is the higher law
You ask me to enter then you make me crawl
And I can't keep on holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt

One love, one blood
One life, you gotta do what you should
One life with each other, my sisters and my brothers

One life but we're not the same
Gotta carry each other, carry each other
One, one, one, one
