Frank Sinatra – Gal That Got Away, The lyrics

The night is bitter
The stars have lost their glitter
The winds grow colder
And suddenly your older
And all because of the gal that got away

No more her eager call
The writing's on the wall
And all those dreams you dreamed
Have gone astray

The gal who won you
She's run off and undone you
That great beginning
Has seen it's final inning
Don't know what happened
It's all a crazy game

No more that all time thrill
Cause you've been through the mill
And never a new love
Will be the same

Good riddance good-bye
Every trick of hers you are on to
Fools may be fools
But where's she gone to?

The road gets rougher
It's lonelier and tougher
With hope you burn up
Tomorrow she may turn up
There ain't no let up
The live long night and day

Ever since this world began
There ain't nothin' sadder than
A long lost loser
Lookin' for the gal that got away

Please come back
Won't you come back
