"The One That Got Away" as written by Dane Anthony Deviller, Sean Syed Hosein, Adam Hurtsfield and Mike Reno....
Remember how you looked at me
there was only one man alive
I was all you ever needed
I could see it in your eyes.
Remember everything you said,
you wore your heart out on your sleeve.
All the words still echo in my head,
I believe.

It’s funny how things can change, with one blink of an eye.
It doesn’t matter what I say, all you see is goodbye.

I hope you think of me when you’re all by yourself, I hope you scream my name when you’re with someone else.
And if you feel the pain that only I can take away, I hope one day you’ll wake up and you’ll say I’m the one that got away.

Did I love you way too much,
please tell me what I did so wrong.
What was the defining moment when you knew that it was gone?

It’s funny how your world can change with one drop of a dime.
It doesn’t matter what you say, all I hear is goodbye.

And I hope you think of me when you’re all by yourself, I hope you scream my name when you’re with someone else. And if you feel the pain that only I can take away, I hope one day you’ll wake up and you’ll say I’m the one that got away.

I hope one day you’ll open your eyes and you’ll see the biggest mistake you ever made was walking out on my, giving up on love.

All I see is goodbye.

I hope you think of me when you’re all by yourself, I hope you scream my name when you’re with someone else. And if you feel the pain that only I can wash a way, I hope one day you’ll wake up and you’ll say, yeah, I’m the one that got away.

Oh the one that got away.
