cast your idols
spare me the details
seems i've never felt the way you feel
about yourself
your words creep in my veins
your nerve beseems you
i'll never be what you want me to

cut my strings so
i can run from you
your regins controlling me
are never gonna take me away
away away away

gone too far
just minutes from you

now im
everything that you're looking to sell
you never looked as good as when you're
standing next to me

gone too far
just minutes from you

cut my strings so
i can run from you
your reigns controlling me
are never gonna take me away
so you can play these
foolish games i've come to hate
just don't forget my name
that everybody loves to say
the one that got away

(on your knees for me)
in the corner of
my gleaming eye
i see the chance you had
now pass you by
so get on your knees
and plead your case
you're begging out of haste
for my embrace so
don' you ever forget my name

cut my strings so
i can run from you
your regins controlling me
are never gonna take me away
so you can play these
foolish games i've come to hate
just don't forget my name
that everybody loves to say
the one that got away
away.
