Is it really you, can't expect to come to you - not today.
It must've been atleast a year or two since the last time I seen your face.
Ain't nothing that new, been doing the usual, good to know that you're okay.
It's a shame you had to go so fast but take care anyway.

How could I ever let her walk out on my life.
And why did I ever treat her anything less then kind.
My only reply, guess I was a foolish guy.
And I should've taken out more time to say all the simple things like;
'You're so beautiful' every single chance I get, I let her know.
Maybe if I could, I truely believe she would've stayed.
Cause I really could just kick myself today.
She's the one that got away.

Sure she's moved on, probably deep gone, with someone who treats her right.
I can't imagine the time they're having cause then they're finally satisfied.
Could've been the one, I was so dumb to let her walk out of my life.
Guess I just have to live with the fact she's happy although she's no longer mine's.

How could I ever let her walk out on my life.
And why did I ever treat her anything less then kind.
My only reply, guess I was a foolish guy.
And I should've taken out more time to say all the simple things like;
'You're so beautiful' every single chance I get, I let her know.
Maybe if I could, I truely believe she would've stayed.
Cause I really could just kick myself today.
She's the one that got away.

Guess it's my lost and I understand the cost.
Should've stepped up, too scared, I waited too long.
But now she's out of my reach, no one else to blame but me.
Lesson learned, I would never take for granted true love again.
Love again, yeah, oh oh.
Cause I miss you, oh oh.
Never take for granted.

All the simple things like;
'You're so beautiful' every single chance I get, I let her know.
Maybe if I could, I truely believe she would've stayed.
Cause I really could just kick myself today.
She's the one that got away.

You're beautiful.
I wanna let her how much I love her.
You would've stayed.
I know now it's my fault that I let you get away.
Oh, no no.
