Shrub – Got Away lyrics
I remember taking drives,
Up near the seaside,
Said you wanna be my bride,
Said I made you laugh,
Liked it when I did it like that,
When I said I love you,
You always said it back,
No ac, yep, we only had a fan,
It so damn hot, yet, we didn't give a damn,
I remember laying blankets on the sand,
I remember making out in the back of the van,

I never said "i'm sorry".
I really can't explain.
I really cannot say, that you had any blame,
'cause I was in the wrong,
And you were in the right,

I guess that's why….
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one

I never thought I'd be here,
I never thought it'd end,
The day you said goodbye,
I tried to pretend,

Like you ain't mean nothing,
But I was just fronting…..
I guess that's why….
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,

I remember waving bye,
Hoping you would't cry,
'cause I told so many lies,
Twenty years have passed,
And I know,
You're never coming back,
Last time I called,
You wouldn't hit me back,

Now I see, yep,
I never should have ran,
I should have told the truth,
Yep, I should have been a man,
I'm always building castles in the sand,
I never planned for the tide,
Now it's high, and I'm damned.

I never said "i'm sorry".
I really can't explain.
I really cannot say, that you had any blame,
'cause I was in the wrong,
And you were in the right,

I guess that's why….
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one

I never thought I'd be here,
I never thought it'd end,
The day you said goodbye,
I tried to pretend,

Like you ain't mean nothing,
But I was just fronting…..
I guess that's why….
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,
Away, away,
You're the one that got away,
