Live performances[]

Grande performed "Only 1" live for the first time at the Sweetener Sessions on August 25, 2018 in Los Angeles.[1] She later performed it on September 7, 2018, for the one-hour special, Ariana Grande at the BBC, which aired on November 1, 2018.[2][3][4]

Despite being released on My Everything (2014), "Only 1" was not performed during the Honeymoon Tour, nor was it featured on the setlist for the Dangerous Woman Tour.

Lyrics[]

[Intro]
I want you, I want you
I want you, I want you
I want you, I want you
Let me introduce myself
Let me introduce myself
Let me introduce myself

[Verse 1]
Lookin' in your eyes makes me wonder how
I got so much time with you and there's more around
I know all the competition that's after you
So I get to thinking, is this too good to be true?

[Pre-Chorus]
That we’re living in a fairytale, no malice & no lies
Baby, ooh, it's hard to believe
That the love you have inside is only mine
That's how I know

[Chorus]
I can't be your only one
No, I can't be your only one
'Cause you look twice as good as anyone I ever met
And your love is three times better
How could anyone forget?
No, I can't
I can't be your only one
No, I can't be your only one
'Cause you look twice as good as anyone I ever met
And your love is three times better
How could anyone forget?
No, I can't

[Verse 2]
As I'm layin' down with you every night
It still gets to me, that you remain by my side
I ain't saying that I'm not deserving you
But I was dreaming bigger than I ever knew when I

[Pre-Chorus]
Wished for living in a fairytale, no malice and no lies
Baby ooh, it's hard to believe
That the love you have to give is only mine
That's how I know

[Chorus]
I can't be your only one
No, I can't be your only one
'Cause you look twice as good as anyone Iever met
And your love is three times better
How could anyone forget?
No, I can't
I can't be your only one
No, I can't be your only one
'Cause you look twice as good as anyone I ever met
And your love is three times better
How could anyone forget?
No, I can't

[Outro]
Only one
Be your only one
Only one
