The One I Love Lyrics
31 May When a normally verbose guy like Michael Stipe writes a song with so few lyrics, as in "the one I love" you should assume every line, every word matters. So you listen to "the one I love" in this context, and what have you got? "This one goes out to the one I love, This one goes out to the one I left behind". 29 Jun Everyday listeners just can't seem to get past the first line of “This one goes out to the one I love.” If they did, they'd get to the part that not only identifies the `one' in question as being `left behind,' and I don't mean in a ridiculous rapture kind of way, though that song might be hilarious, but then also identifies. Fire Fire This one goes out to the one I love. This one goes out to the one I've left behind. A simple prop to occupy my time. This one goes out to the one I love. Fire Fire This one goes out to the one I love. This one goes out to the one I've left behind. Another prop has occupied my time. This one goes out to the one I love. Fire.
In the seventh grade, I had a crush on a girl. Yes, alert the presses, a hormonal teenager had the hots for someone. Just as predictable, I was incredibly awkward and had no clue as to the ways of courtship. Kissing was an absolutely foreign concept as my first lip wrassling partner would find out a mere year later. But I somehow did master the idea of the shared love song.

It still does, albeit with laughter. So, Chicago it was. I would get better at this over the years, though there is something altogether innocent and charming about that first song. In fact, once my friends got wind of this, Source was teased mercilessly. They even requested the song at the next school dance, jeering at me the entire time.
I had my revenge, however. While they were catcalling, I was asked to dance by a cute redhead. Suck on that, non-romantic troglodytes! The first two verses alone would make this a credible option, but the last verse reads like an Ovid-like myth. Ummm, the sea stole your girl and drowned her inside of you? Okay, Orpheus, dramatic much?
This madness has to end! Within the lyrics, however, hides and not very furtively an obsessive stalker. In fact, once a song hints at possession, i. For some reason, breakup songs are the most misinterpreted.

Ditto anything by Fleetwood Mac from Heck, I even heard it played in a baseball stadium after the last game of the season. Not to have too many asides, but this also brings up my pet peeve of people getting song titles wrong. Even when songs seem tailor made for that special mixtape, they might not be.
Specifically, avoid those songs that actually share the same name as your girl. Oh, what was I thinking?
Naturally, the song became prophetic as I was unceremoniously dumped and she started a relationship with a guy from another school. There would be many instances of getting these songs wrong as time went on. In some instances, it had nothing to do with the original intention of the singer. What I had forgotten, or repressed until now, was that my see more at the time had an obsession with Peter Pan.
I would later inadvertently make an altogether different mistake on a mix CD I would compile for a later girlfriend. I knew the girl liked Tori Amos. She had practically every release by her and I found that I had one rare song taped for a benefit by a radio station in L. This is what usually becomes of poor research.

I guess I had not ever tapped that other vein. In the end, I guess it can happen to anyone. The lesson is, research, research, and research. Words are tricky; they can mean practically anything! That song you may think is a love song is not. However, there is something to be said for the bliss of ignorance.
