“No One Else on Earth” by Wynonna Judd
Wynonna Judd’s “No One Else on Earth”, in sort of a roundabout way, speaks to an aspect of romance that is rarely touched upon. And that’s when you have a strong, independent, intelligent woman who still somehow ends up falling in love with a jerk.
In this case Wynonna would be that woman, and that’s why she goes about putting forth that “no one else on Earth” is able to get to her like the addressee.
That reality has both its positive and negative consequences. For instance, the vocalist appears to be so defensive that on one hand, you would presume she’s happy to have found someone able to get through to her heart. But in that regard, ample lyrical focus is centered on the toxic ways in which the addressee treats her which, as implied, is highlighted by him being a cheater.
But Wynonna also goes on to state that this person is “worth it”. So it appears that she’s willing to take the bad along with the good. Indeed, by the looks of things she doesn’t really have a choice, as it is only the addressee who can have such an effect on her to begin with.
“No one else on earth could ever hurt me
Break my heart the way you do
No one else on earth was ever worth it
No one could love me like you”
