If You’re Not the One (Daniel Bedingfield)

June 8, 2008
One of the very few fan videos that I cried to (lol).

I didn’t like this song before but when I watched this video with clips from Hana Yori Dango, it melted my heart (aawww).

Hana Yori Dango (Boys Over Flowers) is a Japanese Drama about a poor girl, Makino Tsukushi (Inoue Mao), who studies in an elite school. At one point she was bullied by the whole school for getting on the nerves of one of the richest boy in school, Domyouji Tsukasa (Jun Matsumoto). Along the way, Doumyoji fell in love with her but because of their status, the trouble comes. The story is of comedy, drama, romance rolled into one with one heartbreaking episode shot in New York.

If you have watched the anime, I recommend you watch the live action too. The story was also adapted in Taiwan titled ‘Meteor Garden,’ that one I wasn’t able to watch though.

Rarely, the song fit the drama well. The lyrics relate very well to the clips too. (Kudos to ladysaotome on Veoh!)

If You’re Not The One

If you’re not the one then why does my soul feel glad today?
If you’re not the one then why does my hand fit yours this way?
If you are not mine then why does your heart return my call
If you are not mine would I have the strength to stand at all

I never know what the future brings
But I know you are here with me now
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with

I don’t want to run away but I can?t take it, I don?t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am?
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

If I don’t need you then why am I crying on my bed?
If I don’t need you then why does your name resound in my head?
If you’re not for me then why does this distance maim my life?
If you’re not for me then why do I dream of you as my wife?

I don’t know why you’re so far away
But I know that this much is true
We’ll make it through
And I hope you are the one I share my life with
And I wish that you could be the one I die with
And I pray in you?re the one I build my home with
I hope I love you all my life

I don’t want to run away but I can?t take it, I don?t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I can stay in your arms?

‘Cause I miss you, body and soul so strong that it takes my breath away
And I breathe you into my heart and pray for the strength to stand today
‘Cause I love you, whether it?s wrong or right
And though I can?t be with you tonight
And know my heart is by your side

I don’t want to run away but I can?t take it, I don?t understand
If I’m not made for you then why does my heart tell me that I am
Is there any way that I
