"The One That Got Away" as written by and Wayne Michael/slater Hammer....
So you have finally made up your mind?
Take one last look at who you leave behind.
We saw no ending, now it's too late.
But we took time enough to devastate.
When people never say things they lead themselves astray.

Oh, oh, uh-oh,
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never had.
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never

I had no problems.
You had no doubts.
We were the ones they used to talk about.
We saw no window, we saw no door.
I used to wonder what the shouting's for.
When people never say things they watch their love decay.

Oh, oh, oh,
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never had.
Oh, oh, oh,
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never had.

When lovers take it too far they bow their heads and say

Oh, oh-oh, oh-oh,
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never had oh-oh, oh-oh,
The one that got away.
Gave me everything I never had
The one that got away
The one that got away
