She rolled in
My little sandy town
She spent the summer there
A couple houses down
Well it was magic in the air
When she caught my eye
We shared three short months
And one long goodbye

She was the one that got away
The one that wrecked my heart
I should've never let her go
I should've begged her to stay
She was the one that got away
Yeah, the one that got away

Well she kissed my lips
Down on Ocean Drive
She set my world on fire
On the fourth of July
We wrote our names in the sand
Under the star-soaked sky
But it washed away like she did
With the rising tide

She was the one that got away
The one that wrecked my heart
I should've never let her go
I should've begged her to stay
She was the one that got away

Every summer that rolls around
I'm looking over my shoulder
Wishing I could see her face
Wishing I could hold her

She was the one that got away
The one that wrecked my heart
I should've never let her go
I should've begged her to stay
She was the one that got away

Yeah, she was the one that got away
The one that wrecked my heart
I should've never let her go
I should've begged her to stay
She was the one that got away
She was the one that got away

She rolled in
My little sandy town
She spent the summer there
A couple houses down

    I met you that one summer... God it was a summer i will never forget. You were the best thing that could've ever happened to me, but i was too blind to see it then. If i could go back to that summer we spent together, just back to that one phone call, i would've done things so much differently. You were my first love, and here it is years later, and i still love you. No matter what i always will. I miss you jkb.

    She rode in
    My little sandy town
    She spent the summer there
    A couple houses down
    Well it was magic in the air
    When she caught my eye
    We shared three short months
    And one long goodbye

    [chorus]
    She was the one that got away
    The one that wrecked my heart
    I should've never let her go
    I should've begged her to stay
    She was the one that got away
    Yeah, the one that got away

    Well she kissed my lips
    Down on Ocean Drive
    She set my world on fire
    On the fourth of July
    We wrote our names in the sand
    Under the star-soaked sky
    But it washed away like she did
    With the rising tide

    [chorus]

    Every summer that rolls around
    I'm looking over my shoulder
    Wishing I could see her face
    Wishing I could hold her

    [chorus x2]

    She rolled in
    My little sandy town
    She spent the summer there
    A couple houses down
