    Trying to decipher the Army Of One lyrics. Can't really figure out some parts. Curious to see what you think.


    Been around the world
    Wonders to view
    Been around the world
    Looking for someone like you
    Pyramids try, Babylon too
    But the beautiful-est treasures lie in the deepest blue

    So I never say die
    I’m never untrue
    I’m never so high as when I’m with you
    And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn’t walk through
    My army of one is gonna fight for you

    Been around the world, the universe too
    Been around flying, baby
    There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
    Tentacle stars will lasso the moon
    I’ll be standing there besides you
    Right when the storm comes through

    'Cause I never say die
    I’m never untrue
    I’m never so high as when I’m with you
    And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn’t walk through
    My army of one is gonna fight for you
    My army of one is gonna fall for you, yeah

    'Cause you’re (right?)
    Oh 'cause you’re (right?)
    'Cause you’re (right?)
    My army of one is gonna call it through

    So my heart is my gun, army of one
    Yeah my heart is my gun, army of one
    It's my only weapon, army of one
    So my heart is my gun, army of one

    Changes in bold. I tried to fill in the blanks but I'm unsure about a few of them.

    Been around the world
    Wonders to view
    Been around the world
    Looking for someone like you
    Pyramids try, Babylon too
    But the beautiful-est treasures lie in the deepest blue

    So I never say die
    I’m never untrue
    I’m never so high as when I’m with you
    And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn’t walk through
    My army of one is gonna fight for you

    Been around the world, the universe too
    Been around flying, baby
    There’s nothing that I wouldn’t do
    Tens of cool(?) stars, while I see the moon
    I’ll be standing there besides you
    Right when the storm comes through

    'Cause I never say die
    I’m never untrue
    I’m never so high as when I’m with you
    And there isn't a fire, that I wouldn’t walk through
    My army of one is gonna fight for you
    My army of one is gonna fall for you, yeah

    'Cause you’re right (?)
    Oh 'cause you’re right(?)
    'Cause you’re right (?)
    My army of one is gonna call it through

    So my heart is my gun, army of one
    Yeah my heart is my gun, army of one
    It's my only weapon, army of one
    So my heart is my gun, army of one

    Agree with most of your suggestions, though I still don't quite hear the word right. I definitely hear a 'r', but that could be due to the word are right before it. Updated the OP.

    I think this one is "tentacle stars will lasso the moon." That's what I'm hearing

    After some closer listening, it definitely sounds more like this. Good catch!

    It most certainly is "reign". Says so on the lyric sheet.

    And is it tenzaku stars?
    Some kind of Japanese wish paper?

    Oh yeah I noticed this in several places, where its written one thing and he sings another *lol* Probably the lyrics we see are handwritten earlier drafts? Still I wish they were more accurate.

    And tanzaku star..that got me wondering too haha But I think it just means colourful paper stars?

    Could the song be telling the story of falling in love, with all the promises you make followed by the bitterness of falling out of love (My army of one is gonna call it through)?

    I think that sometimes people mishear lyrics and then the songwriters like the misheard version even more.

    I'm going to upset people but I'm convinced that the lyrics in the original version of Sparks say "Oh Someone you know....." and not "sing one we know".

    Now that's going back some! ;)

    love

    All I know is James Corden was spot on when he sang "A few cherished little bells are ringing".
