K Young – The One That Got Away lyrics

[Bridge:]
I still really really love you
Yea…
I still really really need you
Oh oh oh

[Hook:]
She's the one that got away
I know… she's searching for me
But I… But I…
I don't know if she'll take me back this time
This time…
She's the one that got away
She's the one that got away

[Verse:]
I've changed
I know you don't believe
And it doesn't matter now
That you've moved on
Cause my feelings are the same
But at least I know he keeps you smiling

When I'm with her, sometimes when all‘s said and done
I can't help but look up
And think about when we first hooked up
I know what love is
You showed me what love is

[Hook:]
She's the one that got away
I know… she's searching for me
But I… But I…
I don't know if she'll take me back this time
(If you could only feel what I feel)
This time…
(Just for a second)
She's the one that got away
(You'd understand)
She's the one that got away

[Verse:]
Empty rum bottle next to a candlelight with a dying flame
Half-written love letter tryin to describe my pain
Unable to think clear, teardrops hit the pages making the ink smear
I told you the truth from the get go, you chose to ignore it
Refusing to let go, this situation I was in was a blowing whirlwind
Wasn't fit to take of myself, let alone a girlfriend
You said it don't matter, material's irrelevant
And I couldn't believe it, could it be that she's heaven-sent?
You was different from the average chick
Cus you had character and wits that complimented your ass and tits
Took me into your home, the second I met your moms
Caught an odd vibe, yes she thought that I meant you harm
But I love you cus you stuck around, said you'd never doubt me
Regardless of what people around you said about me
Whenever we'd you'd lay your head on my chest
I'd watch you go to sleep and listen to every breath you take
And I was certain that the reason we met was fate
Lookin back it hurts cus I deeply regret mistakes
As a man I should've put an end to it
When I noticed that the partying got out of hand
Histories of drug usage, we both escaped
Like Rihanna we fell in love in a hopeless place
Knew that it wouldn't work, I was too reluctant
To let go, said my lifestyle's too destructive
And I know what goes up must come down
Like about a rocket, didn't know how to knock it
I fucked up, wanted to make you my wife
Now she left me and I'm stuck here paying the price
Cause of you I've been through the ringer
Was a fool for letting you slip through my fingers
She's the one that got away

[Hook:]
She's the one that got away
I know… she's searching for me
But I… But I…
I don't know if she'll take me back this time
(If you could only feel what I feel)
This time…
(Just for a second)
She's the one that got away
(You'd understand)
She's the one that got away
