Lyrical Ambiguity

So, in the Oasis song "Wonderwall," when Liam sings,
I don't believe that anybody
feels the way I do about you now
, does he mean that he is the only person who feel the way he does about the particular person being discussed in the song, or does he mean that the feelings he has for this person are so special that he thinks he is the only person who has this feeling about anyone?

In other words, is it:
I don't believe that anybody
feels the way I do (about you now)
or
I don't believe that anybody
feels (the way I do about you now)
?

The former would make more sense, and the latter would be very egotistical, but the song was written by Noel Gallagher, so that's not out of the question.
