Might have been a time when I loved her, too
But you take that away and you’ll always be the one
Drake sometimes feels like he’s falling for his mistresses, but his feeling never lasts long ‘cause his main girl outdoes them all.
Also some wordplay (barely) with “too/two” vs. “one”: Two, take away one, equals one. Take away that second girl Drizzy loved, and you’ll always be the one.
If this song actually is aimed towards Nicki, as most think it is, then this line can be expressed in a little bit more detail:
These two lines can be referring to the time that Drake apparently fell in love with Rihanna (“her” = Rihanna). But with her out of the picture, Drake still does—and always has—loved Nicki, who will always be the one for him
(Yeah I know, that is some detailed soap opera shit right there…)
