I wasn't looking for a sign
I was happy with a life that I called mine
But something knocked me off my feet
Opened up a door that made me take a fly in me

Things are just as they should be
You keep being you and I'll keep being me
Now we're walking up the street
Did I fall for that
Now there's just no turning back

You reeled me in, gave everything
I'm here to stay, that's what you always say
You're the one for me, but will you only be
The one that got away
The one that got away

I guess I should be feeling sure
You keep telling me that love like this is pure
Something doesn't seem to fit
Are you bailing out
'Cause there's a shadow of a doubt

You reeled me in, gave everything
I'm here to stay, that's what you always say
You're the one for me, but will you only be
The one that got away
The one that got away

I always find excuses
Why do I look for things to make it fall apart
This could be something special
I'm too busy searching for the cracks upon the wall

You reeled me in, gave everything
I'm here to stay, that's what you always say
You're the one for me, but will you only be
The one that got away
The one that got away
