He Said, She Said, I Said: One Thing

Now, I wouldn’t call myself a “fan” of One Direction, but I would be lying if I said I never caught myself tapping my foot in time with one of their catchy little ditties. That being said, I generally just dance around my apartment bop my head to the beat, I hadn’t really taken the time to listen to the words…but now that I have, I’m just going to go back to blissful ignorance… Until then, I thought I would share my knowledge with you. Here’s One Direction’s One Thing:

I’ve tried playing it cool
But when I’m looking at you
I can never be brave
Cause you make my heart race

As always, I appreciate the standard AABB rhyming pattern. “Brave” and “race” are a bit of a stretch, but since you guys have the collective age of about 14, I’ll let it slide.

Shot me out of the sky
You’re my Kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can’t breathe

Oh, is that why you never dance when you perform? Cute girl in the audience? (I don’t care, there’s no excuse for choreographed walking.) Also, I think it’s cute that you think you’re anything like Superman. *pats head*

Something’s gotta give now
Cause I’m dying just to make you see
That I need you here with me now
Cause you’ve got that one thing

Okay, this is actually kind of sweet. I’m curious as to what this one thing is that this mystery girl has. Continue, child.

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don’t, I don’t, don’t know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you’ve got that one thing

Wait, you don’t even know what it is? You just know she has it? This seems vague. I feel like this is an unfinished song, or like a really lame attempt to make it easy for every single person under the age of 15 to pretend this song is about them.

Now I’m climbing the walls
But you don’t notice at all
That I’m going out of my mind
All day and all night

Are you Superman or Spiderman? You’re giving me mixed metaphors here, kid. (Hint: you’re neither.)

Some things gotta give now
Cause I’m dying just to know your name
And I need you here with me now
Cause you’ve got that one thing

TO KNOW HER NAME?!? YOU DON’T EVEN KNOW HER??? Okay, this song just got as creepy as Joanna. Girl, get out of there right quick!!

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don’t, I don’t, don’t know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you’ve got that one thing

Yeah, and hopefully that one thing is a restraining order. Goodbye!
