"You May Be The One" as written by Stevie Nicks and Dave Stewart....
You may be the one
But you'll never be the one
You think you understand
But you don't understand

You may be my love
But you'll never be my love
You may take my hand
You who demand so much

And then there was the kiss
Right out there in the universe
How did that happen?
No, it could not have been worse

You forgot yourself
It could not have been worse
It broke my heart
It broke my heart

I used to love you
See the light inside of you
I used to dream that
You were an angel
You were an angel
And I was a starving child

You may have the question
But you'll never answer to me
You may have the goodness somewhere
But you'll never let me see
You may be the righteous one
But it won't be right for me
How its lasted so long
Its a mystery to me

I used to love you
See the light inside of you
I used to dream that
You were an angel
You were an angel
And I was a starving child

You may cry the tears
But the tears aren't really for me
You say its taken years
Years of regret and pain

Forget me not
Says "I'm so afraid"
Says "There's no fear in your eyes,
Tell me another lie"

I hear the honors calling
I hear angry words
Flying across the ocean
Like some sea birds
Never stopping
I feel my blood racing
I can't believe what you are saying
I used to love you so much

I used to love you
See the light inside of you
I used to dream that
You were an angel
I used to love you
See the light inside of you
I used to dream that
You were an angel
I used to love you
See the light inside of you
I used to dream that
You were an angel
You were an angel
And I was a starving child
And we were magic

    General CommentPretty obvious meaning, about somebody who she was once in love with and then things changed. She is looking back on their relationship, reflecting on the good times and the bad, and coming to terms with the fact that they won't be together anymore. She used to dream that they were an angel, but now that is not the case.

    Simple song but one of the best on the latest album.
