The One That Got Away

Summer after high-school when we first met
We make out in your Mustang to Radiohead
And on my 18th birthday we bought matching tattoos
Used to steal your parent's liquor and climb to the roof
Talk about our future like we had a clue
Never planned that one day I'd be losing you

In another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world
In another life I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away.

I was June you were my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other we made a pact
Sometimes when I miss you I put those records on... oooh
Someone said you had your tattoo removed
Saw you downtown singing the blues
It's time to face the music I'm no longer your muse

But in another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises be us against the world
In another life I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away.

The one, the one, the one
The one that got away.

All this money can't buy me a time-machine, no
Can't replace you with a million rings, no
I shoulda told you what you meant to me, oooh
Cause now I pay the price.

In another life I would be your girl
We'd keep all our promises, be us against the world
In another life I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away.

The one, the one, the one

In another life I would make you stay
So I don't have to say you were the one that got away
The one that got away
