A girl's lament over lost love and wondering if he really was "the one that got away"?


The One That Got Away

And I wonder how you are
And I wonder who you love
And if you ever could admit
It's me you're dreaming of?

And I wonder where you sleep
And I wonder when you wake
And if you ever question that
Goodbye was a mistake?

I can't turn you off repeat
You spin around my head like a melody
Should I call you up?
'Cause I keep breaking down
Still you circle round and round
Would it be fair to say ...
You're the one that got away?

And I wonder why you left
And I wonder what is true
And if you ever think of me
The way I think of you?

'Cause a crack in the pavement has swallowed me whole.
(I escaped by a thread with my life and my soul.)
But my head and my heart, they both got left behind,
So please let me know if you ever find ...
either one ...
