The One That Got Away

Oh, oh
I stood by the exit door of the hotel cafe
He was playing with his band
I've always been a sucker Had a weakness for a boy with a guitar and a drink in his hand
His words were like heaven in my hurricane My knees buckled under I thought everyone was watching me Watching you save my life with the song

You were mine
In the back of my mind
Oh, just for one night Just for a while
There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away

Two weeks later I was sitting in his apartment He was making cappuccino
I said, 'what kind of man makes cappuccino?'
We laughed We laughed We laughed We laughed till tears ran down my face

Oh, but, my man, you're someone else's man
And that ain't the man that I want
But you keep drawing me in with those big, brown, lying eyes

You'll always be mine
In the back of my mind
Oh, we had a night Just a little while

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away

In a closed off corner of my heart, yes
I'll always see your face
The one that got away
One that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah
Oh

I'm not a victim of cliches I don't believe in soul mates Happy endings, only one
Oh, and I met you, and all that changed I had a taste, and you're still sitting on the tip of my tongue
You were mine Somewhere in time
I'll look for you first In my next life

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away Slips away
In a closed off corner of my heart, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I, I'll always see your face
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
The one that got away
