You are the love of my life
You are the love of my life
You were the love of my life
This time we know we know
It’s over, over

from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis (Ft. Buffalo Madonna & Macklemore) – Thin Line Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Even if you love someone at some point everyone needs to accept defeat and move on. Because sometimes it’s over, and true love is knowing when to let go.

Fun fact: Erykah Badu’s “Love of My Life (An Ode to Hip Hop)” whose video contains a reference to Common’s “I Used to Love H.E.R.,” both of which compare hip-hop to a love interest.
