Bon Jovi – The One That Got Away lyrics

(written by: Bon Jovi)

If I, I could be anyone
Could I, I be your only one?
If I, I could be anything
Could I be the secret that you keep
Breath that you breathe
Your dreams while you sleep?
If you, if you could read my mind
Then you, you'd now I crossed that line
I, I'd make you my Valentine
I can't let you go but I know
That this ring is there to remind
Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one who got away
Now I'm chasing headlights back home
And you, you're sitting there on your own
When we were sippin' martinis
I started believing I wouldn't be leaving alone
I told you a joke and you laughed
When I asked you to dance
You said there's no band, there's no radio
I got up real slow, started singing real low
When I was melting in your arms I had to let go
Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
And you'll be the one..
If there was no tomorrow
There were no yesterdays
The stolen moments we've borrowed
We wouldn't let slip away
Chorus:
So let's re-enact that scene
From what's-his-name's one act play
I'll be your hero
So let's re-enact that scene
Until our dying day
I'll be the hero
And you can the one
