"Be the One" is a song by Dua Lipa. It was released on October 30, 2015. It served at the second single for Lipa's self-titled debut album Dua Lipa.

Background Edit

In an interview with Nylon magazine, Lipa stated that "Be the One" is about "self belief, perseverance, and fighting for what you want [...] In this instance, it's about a relationship but really, this is an attitude I try to bring into everything in my life."

Critical reception Edit

"Be the One" garnered positive reviews from many music critics. Nieem T from The Metropolist stated "The bold pop piece sees the 19 year old’s vocals soar with confidence, her smoky tone proving fierce on the track, giving the otherwise smooth production true character and personality." Thomas Inskeep from The Singles Jukebox called the song a "Luscious pop song by a young woman with a rich, luscious voice".

Lyrics Edit

I see the moon, I see the moon, I see the moon
Oh, when you're looking at the sun
Not a fool, I'm not a fool, not a fool
No you're not fooling anyone

Oh, but when you're gone
When you're gone, when you're gone
Oh baby, all the lights go out
Thinking, oh that, baby, I was wrong
I was wrong, I was wrong
Come back to me, baby, we can work this out

Oh baby, come on, let me get to know you
Just another chance so that I can show
That I won't let you down and run
No, I won't let you down and run
Cause I could be the one
I could be the one
I could be the one
I could be the one

I see in blue, I see in blue, I see in blue
Oh, when you see everything in red
There is nothing that I wouldn't do for you
Do for you, do for you
Oh, cause you got inside my head

Oh, but when you're gone
When you're gone, when you're gone
Oh baby, all the lights go out
Thinking, oh that, baby, I was wrong
I was wrong, I was wrong
Come back to me, baby, we can work this out

Oh baby, come on, let me get to know you
Just another chance so that I can show
That I won't let you down and run
No, I won't let you down and run
Cause I could be the one
I could be the one
I could be the one

Be the one, be the one, be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
I could be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
I could be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
I could be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
Be the one, be the one, be the one
Will you be mine?

Oh baby, come on, let me get to know you
Just another chance so that I can show
That I won't let you down and run
No, I won't let you down and run
Cause I could be the one
I could be the one
I could be the one
