"One" is a song written by Sky Ferreira, Christian Karlsson, Magnus Lidehäll, Marit Bergman, and Pontus Winnberg for Ferreira's debut studio album. It was released on August 20, 2010 as a single from Ferreira's debut studio album, however, due to numerous delays in the album, the song wasn't included in the final track list.

Writing and inspirationEdit

"One" was written by Sky Ferreira and Marit Bergman in less than thirty minutes, and was produced by Bloodshy & Avant, responsible for some of Britney Spears' hits such as "Toxic", "Piece of Me", and "Radar". Ferreira stated the song is about "being numb and wanting to feel love, happiness, sadness—anything, really. It's kind of like the Tin Man wanting a heart." In an interview with Digital Spy, Ferreira elaborated on the meaning behind "One": "It's about that point where you don't feel anything—you don't feel happy, you don't feel sad but you want to feel something. It's a situation I was in and I think everyone's been in. There's always someone in a relationship who wants more attention and starts trying too hard to please the other person. The thing is, the more you try to please that person, the less effort they make because they know you'll do anything they want. It's that stage I'm singing about on 'One'."

Commercial performanceEdit

"One" entered the UK Singles Chart at number sixty-four for the week of August 29, 2010.

LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

[Verse 1]:
You don't know just how to start me up,
Don't know how to get me going now.
(Now, now, now, now)
(Now, now, now, now)
Something's wrong between the two of us,
I'm not a robot but I feel like one.
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
One, two, three, four.

[Chorus]:
Head to the ground,
I don't ever want the beat to stop.
(Stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
Speaking without a sound,
You try to call me but you're breaking up.
(Up, up, up, up, up, up)
And now all I can hear is one.
(One, one, one)
And now all I can hear is one.
(One, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)

[Verse 2]:
Don't know how to shut you off,
Don't know how to keep this going now.
(Now, now, now, now)
(Now, now, now, now)
I feel like I'm about to rust.
Ruin my heart, I'll buy another one.
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
One, two, three, four.

[Chorus]:
Head to the ground,
I don't ever want the beat to stop.
(Stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
Speaking without a sound,
You try to call me but you're breaking up.
(Up, up, up, up, up, up)
And now all I can hear is one.

[Bridge]:
One-two-three
One-two-three-four

I just want to hear your heart.
Wake me up or I will keep my.

[Chorus]:
Head to the ground,
I don't ever want the beat to stop.
(Stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
(Stop, stop, stop, stop)
Speaking without a sound,
You try to call me but you're breaking up.
(Up, up, up, up, up, up)
And now all I can hear is one.
(One, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)
(One, one, one, one)

One, one.

Music videoEdit

The music video, directed by photographer Rankin, was released to Parlophone's YouTube channel on July 2, 2010. It consists mostly of close-ups of Ferreira in a red outfit on a flashing floor, singing into a lamp without a lampshade in a white room, jumping in slow motion, and pulling on a white parachute.
