"One That Got Away" as written by and Peter Knobler Chris Hillman....
One that got away came and tracked me down
What she had in mind, one for finer times
She always used to move me that way
She said
"What I'm looking to do is get my hands on you
And I'd be livin' a lie to say that I
Have the feelin' too"

That's why I'm sighin' in the night
Her dancing eyes laughin' so bright
And if she gets away from me again
I'll miss her till the end, if I'm right
I should go home tonight

Living in a lonesome town
She married late and settled down
I raised a family, found security
We loved what we call our own

I used to call her mine
We were so young and so fine
But do I want to stop two life-long broken hearts
And come together one last time

That's why I'm sighin' in the night
Her dancing eyes laughin' so bright
And if she gets away from me again
I'll miss her till the end, if I'm right
I should go home tonight

Hold you tonight and I throw my life away
Kids and a wife for the touch of yeterday

That's why I'm sighin' in the night
Her dancing eyes laughin' so bright
And if she gets away from me again
I'll miss her till the end, if I'm right
I should go home tonight
I should go home tonight
I should go home tonight
I should go home tonight
