Default You're The One (Original)

I wrote this for a lovely Andalusian girl I fell in love with and traveled across Europe with.

Guitar: Yamaha CSF3M miked with a cheap Behringer C3 condenser
Vocal: SM58

Lyrics below:

You’re the one I sat with
On a distant shore
The one who I backpacked with
Slept with on the floor
You’re the one who made me beautiful inside
Why did I say goodbye?

You’re the one who I made
Love with in the fields
You’re the one who I gave
Secrets unrevealed
You’re the one whose heart was open as the sky
Why did I make you cry?

Now you’re the one who I conjure in my dreams
Now you’re the one I’d fly to if I had wings
Just know that there’s one who smiles upon you
And dreams of you no matter where you are
And I hope you’re the one who meets me beyond the stars
I hope you’re the one who meets me beyond the stars

You’re the one who strummed out
Songs on my guitar
While I stuck my thumb out
For a passing car
You’re the one I lived with
On bread and cheese and wine
I wish I could turn back time

You’re the one who lingered
In imaginary worlds
Underneath your fingers
My scars turned to pearls
And you’re the one I stranded
To make something of myself
Now I wish I was someone else

Now you’re the one who I’m searching for in vain
Trying to find a number to match your name
Just know that there’s one who smiles upon you
Who dreams of you no matter where you are
And I hope you’re the one who meets me beyond the stars
I hope you’re the one who meets me beyond the stars

Thanks, it's a pretty easy song to play, difficult for me vocally. I'm happy with the chords, melody, lyrics. Maybe I can get someone else to sing it better.
