TPFASTT for The One by Elton John

T

I think that "The One" is about a man that finds the one woman that he loves.

P

The song is about a man that reminisces about how he first met "the one".

F

Metaphor= Reality runs up your spine.

Metaphor= The pieces finally fit.

Simile=Like freedom fields where wild horses run.

Simile= When stars collide like you and I.

Allusion=For each man in his time is Cain.

Hyperbole= You're all I ever needed.

A

The attitude of the song is romance/love. He meant for the song to be soft probably in order not to scare or creep out his lover.

S

The tone changed every time the chorus starts. In the verses, it is mellow, and then the chorus comes and golly does it show that Elton John really feels passionate about "the one".

T

I was right in my predictions. The title could have another meaning and mean that he lost the one instead of finding the one.

T

The poem is saying that he has found the one. He is trying to get a message across the one woman that he will love for ever that she is the one.

ELTON JOHN - The One (Lyrics)

How "The One" Mirrors Romeo & Juliet

This song mirror the relationships in Romeo & Juliet because when Elton sang, "In the instant that you love someone/In the second that the hammer hits/Reality runs up your spine/And the pieces finally fit," it mirrored how when Romeo first saw Juliet at the dance and everything, in his eyes, was perfect. When he sang "You're all I've ever needed," that was the feeling between Romeo & Juliet. They didn't care that something would happen to them. They only wanted each other.

Streets of Love

Blood
Was running through my veins
Then love
When I saw his face
Him was who I should hate
Pain
When I became a disgrace

I wanted to believe
That he was the key
To my spirituality
But there was no guarantee
That safe we would be
Or in love for eternity

Strength
Was what he gave me
Hope
When he craved me
Weight
Was what he carried
Joy
When I married

I wanted to believe
That he was the key
To my spirituality
But there was no guarantee
That safe we would be
Or in love for eternity

He was my all
He caught my fall
He climbed my wall
Every time I called
Even in rainfall
He was my all

I wanted to believe
That he was the key
To my spirituality
But there was no guarantee
That safe we would be
Or in love for eternity

How "Streets of Love" Mirrors Romeo & Juliet

My song mirrors Romeo & Juliet because I wrote the song all in Juliet's perspective. I said that she, Juliet, became a disgrace because her family wouldn't enjoy watching their daughter with a Montague. I named it Streets of Love because the Tragedy of Romeo & Juliet took place in the streets of Verona, and Romeo & Juliet were in love. Most of the song happened in the Tragedy of Romeo & Juliet, so I just took Juliet's perspective and put it into a song.
