Maysa – The Man That Got Away lyrics

The night
Is bitter
The stars
Have lost
Their glitter
The winds
Grow colder
And suddenly
You're older
And all
Of the man
That got away

No, no more
His eager call
The writing's
On the wall
The dreams
You dreamed
Have all
Gone astray

The man
That won you
Has gone off
And undone you
That great
Has seen the
Final inning
Don't know
What happened
It's all
A crazy game

No more that
All-time thrill
For you've been
Through the mill
And never
A new love will
Be the same

Good riddance
Ev'ry trick
Of his
You're on to
But fools
Will be fools
And where's
He gone to?

The road
Hets rougher
It's lonelier
And tougher
With hope
You burn up
He may turn up
There's just
No letup
The live-long
Night and day

Ever since
This world began
There is nothing
Sadder than
A one-man woman
Looking for
The man
That got away
The man
That got away
