You were the one that got away
So come right back
So won’t you come right back to me?
So we can figure this out and see
What the chemistry between us has already made obvious

Once you’re in my arms again
Oh we’ll hug and we’ll touch
We’ll kiss and make up
And then we’ll finally see
If the feeling between us has changed

I can’t sleep still at night
Knowing I let you slip right between my fingers
I won’t rush you, If it’s a
Slow walk you want, it’s a slow walk I’m willing to take
Having you back in my life
It would feel so right
Cause right now I can’t stand to let you be
The one that got away

Now I’m not a know it all
But when I look in your eyes
The world’s simplified
The answer is clear
To the mystery that we’ve got here

We gotta give this another chance
Or else how will know
We have so far to grow
What do you say?
Will you come right back to me?

I can’t sleep still at night
Knowing I let you slip right between my fingers
I won’t rush you, If it’s a
Slow walk you want, it’s a slow walk I’m willing to take
Having you back in my life
It would feel so right
Cause right now I can’t stand to let you be
The one that got away

All the signs we have let slide
All the feelings we both denied
We can’t let them go to waste. (I’m ready)
Our hearts are racing; we’re both winners in this case.

I can’t sleep still at night
Knowing I let you slip right between my fingers
I won’t rush you, If it’s a
Slow walk you want, it’s a slow walk I’m willing to take
Having you back in my life
It would feel so right
Cause right now I can’t stand to let you be
No I will not let you be
The one that got away
(The one that got away)
The one that got away
