The One That Got Away



Summer after high school when we first metWe make up in your Mustang to RadioheadAnd on my 18th BirthdayWe got matching tattoos
Used to steal your parents' liquorAnd climb to the roofTalk about our futurelike we had a clueNever plan that one dayI'd be losing you
And in another lifeI would be your girlWe keep all our promisesBe us against the world
And in another lifeI would make you staySo I don't have to sayYou were the one that got awayThe one that got away
I was June and you were my Johnny CashNever one without the other we made a pactSometimes when I miss youI put those records on
Someone said you had your tattoo removedSaw you downtown singing the BluesIts time to face the musicI'm no longer your muse
And in another lifeI would be your girlWe keep all our promisesBe us against the world
And in another lifeI would make you staySo I don't have to sayYou were the one that got awayThe one that got awayThe o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]The one that got away
[Bridge:]All these money can't buy me a time machine (Nooooo)Can't replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)I shoulda told you what you meant to me (Woooooow)Cause now I pay the price
And in another lifeI would be your girlWe keep all our promisesBe us against the world
And in another lifeI would make you staySo I don't have to sayYou were the one that got awayThe one that got awayThe o-o-o-o-o-one [x3]
And in another lifeI would make you staySo I don't have to sayYou were the one that got awayThe one that got away
