    Not always.

    i.e.
    너밖에 없어: There is no one but you = there is only you. (You will hear this expression quite often when you listen to Korean songs).
    물밖에 없어: There is nothing but water = there is only water.

    ----------

    "~밖에 없어"= "There is no one/nothing but ~"; therefore, "there is only ~."
