"The One That Got Away" as written by and James/smith Photoglo....
I will always be here
You've got me in chains
You'll never let me be
You always will remain
In the face of another

You know what you've done
You know very well
You set a trap for me
And baby, I fell
For the love of you, lover

So don't turn around
Because there's nothing left to say
And I'll let you be
The one that got away

And you can cut that string
And we can quit these games we play
And I'll let you be
The one that got away

I should have known better
What a fool to be so blind
And now all I've got here
Is the mess you left behind
And the memory of a promise gone bad

Now all the books have been read
And the case has been closed
And all fingers point to you
And everybody knows
So how's it feel to be the one who has been had

So don't turn around
Because there's nothing left to say
And I'll let you be
The one that got away

And you can cut that string
And we can quit these games we play
And I'll let you be
The one that got away
I know the moment I turn around
You'll want me back right away
And I'll always be the one that got away
