The One That Got Away Lyrics

by Pink

Mmm, mmm, yeah, oh, oh

I stood by the exit door of the hotel cafe
He was playin' 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 watchin' 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 that slips away

Said, 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 'til 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 lion eyes

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

There's always one
That gets away
The one that sneaks up
On you that 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 sittin'
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 that 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
