Summer right before school when we first met
We'd listen every day to radio head
And when it was my birthday you bought me some balloons
Used to eat your favorite ice cream and hang by the pool, talk about our
Future like we had a clue
Never planned on one day I'd be losing you

In another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world
In another life I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away

I was June and you were my Johnny Cash, never one without the other we made
A pact
Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on

Someone said you had your heart break removed
Saw you downtown singing the blues
It's time to face the music I'm no longer your muse

In another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises be us against the world
In another life I would make you stay

So I don't have to say you were the one that got away

The one that got away
The one
The one
The one
The one that got away

All this money can't buy me a time machine
Can't replace you with a million rings
I should have told you what you meant to me
But now I've paid the price

In another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises
Be us against the world

In another life I would make you stay
The one that got away

The one
The one
The one

The one that got away
