"The One That Got Away" as written by and Natasha/winkler Bedingfield....
Would ya spare a minute?
Give me a single chance
To look in your eyes
Let me hold your hands

I want to get close enough
To read you
Understand you
Open up your heart

Open up your mind
Nobody needs another stalker in your life
I'm only here to help you learn to love me
To know me

[Chorus]
I need a hook so you won't be the one that got away
I need a look that stuns you, makes you want to stay.
Don't want to speak in case it comes out wrong
Don't want to blink 'cause in a second you could be gone
I need a twist to help me to turn the story round
I need a bridge to cross this dangerous ground
Meet me in the middle like I want you to
I gotta find your heart to shoot my arrow through

Did ya see me staring
You caught my eye
Don't turn around
Don't walk away

The night is young, can we get together?
Got so many questions
Feelings I can't explain
We're worlds apart

Don't even know your name
I'm longing to give you my heart

[Chorus]

Turn around, don't evaporate
Like you never came
Turn around don't be a ghost
Forever never there to haunt me

Sliding doors
They aren't just on a train
We're alone on a platform in the rain
There's a chance
And it won't come again
Turn around your whole life has changed

[Chorus]

Turn around
Turn around

    General CommentI think this song is amazing even with all the different mixes it has. It's obvious what it's about, you're sick of losing people so you're hoping and trying to do all these things so the person you love at the moment won't up being like the rest of the people you loved who got away. I think everyone can relate to the lyrics because everyone has been in the same situation as the person described in this song.

    General CommentI love, this song as I can totally relate to it! I love Natasha anyway but this song is extra special to me! My fae lyric is probably 'don't wanna speak in case it comes out wrong' because I tend to say the wrong fings sometimes. The song is awesome!

    General CommentThat song really got to me today.
    "I need a look that stunns ya, makes ya wanna stay.
    Don't wanna speak in case it comes out wrong
    Don't wanna blink, cause in a second you could be gone"
    ^ hit the spot.

    I guess the song's about trying to make someone love you, although they don't know you and/or don't like you, or only as a friend...
