They say you don't know what you got
until it is gone.
Well I know what I'm not,
and this is where I belong.
There by your side
is where I should stand.
But I was a fool
and let you slip through my hands.

I watched you wave a sad goodbye,
and here I am alone, wondering why.

Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
And now, I pray for a chance at yesterday
cause the best one got away.

Maybe it's harder to see
when it's in front of your face.
But it's been easy for me
to make the same damn mistakes.
I don't know what is wrong
with having everything right.
But I've been out here so long,
I run all the red lights.

And as I head on down the line
and look back on the things I've left behind...

Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
And now, I pray for a chance at yesterday
cause the best one got away.

I watched you wave a sad goodbye,
and here I am alone, wondering why.

They say you don't know what you got
until it is gone.

Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
Somehow, someway, the best ones get away.
And now, I pray for a chance at yesterday
cause the best one got away.
