Subject: Carol King 'One'
From: open mike

a recent post about Carol King lyrics reminds me that I have been searching for her song "ONE"

not the same as "One to One" or "One Fine Day"
I first heard it on t.v. (possibly on the sound track to the movie One to One??)

I have posted this query before but did not find it in the search.

here are th elyurics...looking for the tune an dchords...
One by Carole King

Poetic phrases come to mind
Whenever I find injustice being done
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What can one do except to be one
Talking to two, touching three
Growing to four million
Each of us is one--all of us are one

I go through phases when I realize
It wouldn't be wise to try and bring it down
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What should one do except just be around
Staying alive, putting out love
Growing to five billion
Each of us is one--all of us are one

Open your heart and let the love come shining through
And you will do what you need to do
To know just where the other you is coming from
He is one--she is one
A tree is one--the earth is one--the universe is one
I am one--we are one

It just amazes me that I can be
Part of the energy it takes to serve each other
And I wonder what am I gonna do
What can one do
Except be one
Each of us is one--all of us are one
We are one
What am I gonna do
Be one

Not bad lyrics...I certainly agree with the sentiments. Have you considered doing your own melody to it? Sometimes Carol's tunes could use, either a different arrangement, or delivery...and that includes Taylor' versions....but that may be only my opinion..

Best of Luck,
