  • 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 Writer/s: DAVE STEWART, STEVIE NICKS
