The Material – The One That Got Away lyrics

Here, in the place we were before
Where I used to hate these walls
Now I miss them even more

Fate, is it why we fell apart
Or just what we tell ourselves
When we're lying in the dark

And all these secrets that we keep
Are falling out now as we sleep
And waking ourselves as we speak just to hear the truth

Every chance I didn't take
Playing in my mind each day
You were just the one that got away
You were just the one that got away
All the messes that we made
Wouldn't trade for anything
You were just the one that got away
You were just the one that got away

Feel you like the beating of my heart
But you're the ghost of what we had
In faded pictures from the start

And all these secrets that we keep
Are falling out now as we sleep
And waking ourselves as we speak just to hear the truth
