You were the one and we called it love
And now you take it away, take away!
While Young clearly felt that the woman he is addressing was “the one” she’s clearly not as convinced as he is about their compatibility. Though they labeled what they had in their relationship as “love,” it appears that the title was not necessarily reflective of the reality. Calling it love does not make it so.
