Lyrics

Rachel:
Is it getting better, or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You've got someone to blame

Finn:
(and Rachel: You say)
One love, one life
When it's one need, in the night
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you, baby, if you don't care for it
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Finn and Rachel:
Well, it's too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One... (Mercedes: Yeah)
One... (Mercedes: Oh)

Finn:
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Rachel:
Oh, and did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to hurt each other
Now we do it again
You say,

Rachel with New Directions:
Love is a temple, love is a higher law
Love is a temple, love is a higher law

Rachel with New Directions harmonizing:
You ask for me to enter, but then you make me crawl

Rachel with New Directions:
And I can't keep holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt

Finn and Rachel with New Directions (New Directions):
One love (One love)
One blood (One blood)
One life you got to do what you should
One life (One life)
With each other (each other)
Sisters (sisters)
And my (And my)
Brothers

Rachel (with Finn):
(One life) but we're (not the same)
(We get to carry each other
Carry each other)

Finn and Rachel:
One,
One, one (Mercedes: one)
One, (Mercedes: We give)
One (Mercedes: Ooooh)

Rachel:
Is it getting better, or do you feel the same?
Will it make it easier on you now?
You've got someone to blame

Sean:
(and Rachel: You say)
One love, one life
When it's one need, in the night
One love, we get to share it
Leaves you, baby, if you don't care for it

Finn:
Did I disappoint you?
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth?
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without

Finn and Rachel:
Well, it's too late, tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to carry each other
Carry each other
One... (Mercedes: Yeah)
One... (Mercedes: Oh)

Finn:
Have you come here for forgiveness?
Have you come to raise the dead?
Have you come here to play Jesus?
To the lepers in your head

Rachel:
Oh, and did I ask too much, more than a lot?
You gave me nothing, now it's all I got
We're one, but we're not the same
We get to hurt each other
Now we do it again
You say,

Rachel with New Directions:

Love is a temple, love is a higher law
