Lyric "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 got matching tattoos

Used to steal your parents' 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 and you were
my Johnny Cash
Never one without the other
we made a part
Sometimes when I miss you
I put those records on (Whoa)

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 o-o-o-o-o-one
The o-o-o-o-o-one
The o-o-o-o-o-one
The one that got away

All this money can't buy me a time machine (Nooooo)
Can't replace you with a million rings (Nooooo)
I should've told you what you meant to me (Whoa)
'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 o-o-o-o-o-one
The o-o-o-o-o-one
The o-o-o-o-o-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
