So you have finally made up your mind
take one last look at who you're leaving behind
we lost the ending we were too late
but we took time enough to devastate
when people never say things
they lead themselves astray
CHORUS:
oh oh oh
The one that got away
gave me everything
I never had
oh oh
the one that got away
gave me everything I never
I had no problems you had no doubts
we were the ones they used to talk about
we saw no windows we had no door
I used to wonder what the shouting's for
when people never say things
they watch their love decay
REPEAT CHORUS
When loves take it too far
they bow their heads and say
REPEAT CHORUS
One that got away (repeat 3x)
(fade out)
