Lyrics

The One That Got Away
Gail Swanson and Cris Sommer Simmons ©2009

Sometimes I wonder Baby.. Where are you now?
We never said goodbye, we didn’t know how
Maybe I’m crazy, maybe I think too much
But there is a corner of my heart
That you can still touch

Chorus:
And after all these years
I wonder what you’d say
If I asked you
Am I the one that got away?

I hung a picture of you inside my mind
And all my memories come through frozen in time
I’d like to think that I was the one you loved most
Cause I am here all alone in love with your ghost

And after all these years
I wonder what you’d say
If I asked you
Am I the one that got away?

You couldn’t keep me
you couldn’t hold me way back then
I would have stayed if I’d only known how it would end
I walked away before I knew
I’d never hold you again

Then thousand sunsets faded into the dawn
And I think of you every morning since you’ve been gone

After all these years
I wonder what you’d say
If I asked you am the I am the one?
Baby am I the one?
Or if I told you
That you’re the one that got away
