the one that got away lyrics – lil’ eddie

is it really you, can’t expect to come to you – not today.
it must’ve been atleast a year or two since the last time i seen your face.
ain’t nothing that new, been doing the usual, good to know that you’re okay.
it’s a shame you had to go so fast but take care anyway.

how could i ever let her walk out on my life.
and why did i ever treat her anything less then kind.
my only reply, guess i was a foolish guy.
and i should’ve taken out more time to say all the simple things like;
‘you’re so beautiful’ every single chance i get, i let her know.
maybe if i could, i truely believe she would’ve stayed.
cause i really could just kick myself today.
she’s the one that got away.

sure she’s moved on, probably deep gone, with someone who treats her right.
i can’t imagine the time they’re having cause then they’re finally satisfied.
could’ve been the one, i was so dumb to let her walk out of my life.
guess i just have to live with the fact she’s happy although she’s no longer mine’s.

how could i ever let her walk out on my life.
and why did i ever treat her anything less then kind.
my only reply, guess i was a foolish guy.
and i should’ve taken out more time to say all the simple things like;
‘you’re so beautiful’ every single chance i get, i let her know.
maybe if i could, i truely believe she would’ve stayed.
cause i really could just kick myself today.
she’s the one that got away.

guess it’s my lost and i understand the cost.
should’ve stepped up, too scared, i waited too long.
but now she’s out of my reach, no one else to blame but me.
lesson learned, i would never take for granted true love again.
love again, yeah, oh oh.
cause i miss you, oh oh.
never take for granted.

all the simple things like;
‘you’re so beautiful’ every single chance i get, i let her know.
maybe if i could, i truely believe she would’ve stayed.
cause i really could just kick myself today.
she’s the one that got away.

you’re beautiful.
i wanna let her how much i love her.
you would’ve stayed.
i know now it’s my fault that i let you get away.
oh, no no.
